Food Tips of the Week
If you wish to become slim and boost your all round health, then, as any dietician will tell you, you really should eat a thoughtfully calculated sensible daily routine. At best, this should include five measures of grains and vegetables each day and also incorporate the right mix of important nutrients.
Some lower carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Make reduced carbohydrate bread crumbs for breadcrumb coated foods.
Whilst you may be able to buy reduced carb breadcrumbs, you may make them at home by simply using reduced carb bread. All you have to do is simply toast the reduced carb bread in a pre-heated oven on a cookie sheet. When it is well toasted, process it in your food processor or blender. To store, keep in a tupperware jar or container.
* Fiber is essential
Cutting the carbs in your diet often results in reduction in fiber also. Look at low carbohydrate recipes that are rich in fiber to restore the balance.
Superfoods rich in flavonoids

Most are also good for weight loss, so should be included in every weight loss program.
