Food Tips of the Week
In deciding on a meal plan, it is essential to also make sure you cut down your ingestion of refined carbohydrate, fat and salt.
The problems associated with reduced carb diets
Its all the rage, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
Eliminating carbs might mean missing out on necessary nutrients from 'good' carbohydrate foods which should be part of any well-balanced diet, especially those that we get from grains, vegetables and fruits.
Higher consumption of animal-based products could lead into increased consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which a few authorities believe will increase the chance of coronary problems.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, white onions and spring onions)
The onion family of vegetables is rich in allyl sulphides, a chemical which experts believe might be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Although there is insufficient hard medical proof at hand, allyl sulfides are also thought by nutritionalists to reduce symptoms with blood circulation, sterilization and diabetes.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are low in calories, so should be included in your weight loss program.
