Food Tips of the Week
At the start of a diet, people most certainly look at food store and big brand food items labelled 'low in fat'. To do this is far too often a miscalculation, in that an item could be significantly reduced in fats, but nevertheless elavated in calories and carbs.
Some lower carbohydrate diet tips:
* Make low carbohydrate bread crumbs for breadcrumb coated foods.
Although you can sometimes buy reduced carbohydrate bread crumbs, you can make them at home by using reduced carb bread. All you have to do is toast the low carb bread in the oven on a cookie sheet. When it is well browned, whizz it in the food processor or blender. To store, keep in a tupperware container.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, onions and welsh onion)

Even though there is very little scientific evidence obtainable, allyl sulphides are also thought to help with antiinflammatory effect, high blood pressure and diabetes.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are also low in calories, so should be a part of every diet system.
