Food Tips of the Week

Dieting tips

In deciding on a meal plan, it is essential to also make sure you cut down your ingestion of refined carbohydrate, fat and salt.
Some reduced carb diet tips:
* Don't skip meals Most low carbohydrate recipes are, rather obviously, low in carbs. Our bodies need energy, and carbs are a very efficient source of energy. A low carbohydrate diet requires extreme care in managing your intake of energy, as any energy provided by protein and fat is slower acting.

* Make reduced carbohydrate bread crumbs for breaded foods. While you can sometimes buy reduced carb bread crumbs, you can make them yourself by simply using low carb bread. All you have to do is toast the low carbohydrate bread in a preheated oven on a sheet of cookie paper. Once it is well toasted, process it in your food processor or blender. Keep in a tupperware container.

Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes eschalot, chives and green onion)

The onion family of vegetables is high in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe could be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is very little scientific evidence at hand, allyl sulfides are also thought by many researchers to reduce the symptoms of colds, sterilization and diabetes.

Foods containing allyl sulfides are also good for weight loss, so you should add them to your weight loss regime.
