Food Tips of the Week

A few tips on healthy eating

In planning a diet, the important thing is to also endeavour to restrict your ingestion of refined carbohydrates, salt and fats.
The case against reduced carbohydrate diets
Its popular as hell, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
The majority of the negative side effects stated, such as tiredness, bowel disorders, or headaches seem to pass quickly, but critics contend that low carb diets are not without permanently harmful side effects.
Remember, one point that is usually overlooked, it is damned hard (though by no means impossible) for vegetarians to adopt a reduced carb diet.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, leeks and spring onions)

The onion, leek and garlic family of foods is rich in allyl sulphides, a chemical which experts believe might be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is not much scientific proof at hand, allyl sulfides are also believed to aid in antiinflammatory effect, arteriosclerosis and physical exhaustion.

Foods containing allyl sulfides also have a low calorie count, so should be included in your weight loss program.
