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.
Some reduced carb diet guidlines:
* Make low carbohydrate bread crumbs for deep fried foods.
Although you can possibly buy low carbohydrate bread crumbs, you can make them at home by using reduced carbohydrate bread. All you have to do is simply toast the low carbohydrate bread in a preheated oven on a sheet of cookie paper. Once it is quite hard and crispy, whizz it in your food mill. To store, keep in an airtight jar or container.
* You can create really great smoothies by using reduced carbohydrate yogurt.
Yes, you can't really describe it as cooking, but if you adore smoothies you can throw them together with low carb yogurt and fruit. Of course, you will need to make sure you only make use of fruit that is low in carbohydrates and use the whole fruit as you need the fiber.
