Food Tips of the Week

Dieting made easy

One useful tip is to drink plenty of water. From time to time at some stage in a hectic morning, you guess that you want a snack but in fact you might just need a refreshing glass of water or orange squash. The feelings of needing food and needing a drink are quite similar, but one of the two can lead to a broken diet and the other is ok.
Some low carbohydrate diet tips:
* Don't forget the fiber Cutting the carbohydrates in your diet usually leads to fiber reduction also. Look out for reduced carb recipes that are rich in fiber to redress this.

* Use reduced carbohydrate chocolate bars for cookies and muffins. If you have taken the time to convert your tasty chocolate chip cookie or chocolate muffins recipe using soya flour, it would be crazy to put in those high carbohydrate full-sugar chocolate. Break up a reduced carbohydrate choccie bar into little pieces and use that as an alternative.

Cruciferous vegetables, Super foods that also help your Dieting
(examples: Broccoli, Broccoli, Mizuna and Napa)
Altthough not always popular with children, these are rich in vitamins (folate and vitamin c), minerals (selenium and potassium, amongst others), fibre, chlorophyll and antioxidents.

Over and above their numerous other beneficial effects, some of these nutrients are believed by experts to reduce the risk of cancer.
