chili. Some cooks like more garlic, some more chili powder; some use
fresh chilies as well: some add yogurt, coconut, cream...you name

Food Tips of the Week
If you wish to become slim and boost your all round health, then, as any dietician will tell you, you really should eat a thoughtfully calculated sensible daily routine. At best, this should include five measures of grains and vegetables each day and also incorporate the right mix of important nutrients.
The argument against reduced carbohydrate diets
Its extremely popular, but it is truly safe for you?
The majority of the negative side effects stated, such as general tiredness, diarrhea, constipation, or headaches seem to be only temporary, but critics contend that low carb diets are not without permanently harmful side effects.
Moreover, it has been suggested that the kidneys may be given too much work to do and that the consequential change in blood acid levels can result in bone loss, but some of the studies testing the hypothesis have struggled to find real evidence of damage to the kidneys or loss of bone.
Foods containing carotenes
(includes parsley, rose hip puree and tomato ketchup)
These colorful healthy superfoods contain alpha-carotene and beta-carotene believed by doctors play a key role in cancer prevention, specifically those cancers involving the stomach and lesophagus. Many are low in calories, so are ideal for including in your diet.
