Food Tips of the Week
A few tips on healthy eating
If you enjoy eating, but want to get in shape and improve your overall vitality, then, as most people know, you need to start a thoughtfully prepared well-balanced meal plan. In a perfect world, this needs to contain 5 standard portions of grains, fruit and vegetables daily and embrace the right proportion of food types.
Some lower carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Make low carbohydrate breadcrumbs for deep fried foods.
Although you can probably buy low carbohydrate breadcrumbs, you may make them yourself by simply using low carb bread. Simply toast the low carbohydrate bread in a gas or electric oven on a baking tray. Once it is well toasted, grind it up in the food processor using a coarse blade. Store in a tupperware container.
(inlcudes lettuce, fennel, lima bean & chamomile)
The nutrients called 'flavonoids' which exist in these foods are thought by experts to have properties as anti-carcinogens.
Nutritionalists looking into the effects of flavonoids believe they may well also have numerous healthy benefits, amongst them, antiviral and anti-inflammatory capabilities.
A good number also help you lose weight, so should be included in every weight loss regime.
