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 lower carb diet guidlines:
* Eat regular meals Most reduced carb recipes are, you won't be surpised to learn, low in carbs. We all need energy, and carbs are a quick acting energy source. A low carb diet requires great care in controlling your energy levels, as any energy contributed by non-carbohydrate sources is slower acting.

* Use reduced carb chocolate bars for cookies and muffins. Once you have converted your favorite chocolate cookie or chocolate muffins recipe using soy flour, you donít want to mix in those high carbohydrate full-sugar chocolate. Cut up a reduced carb bar of chocolate into little pieces and use that in its place.

The brassica family, Wonderfoods that aid Your diet
(includes Kale, Broccoli, Turnip greens and Rutabaga)
Known as cruciferous vegetables, these are rich in vitamins (folate and vitamin c, for example), minerals (eg. potassium and selenium), fibre, chlorophyll, antioxidents, and indole-3-carbinol.

Over and above their most other beneficial effects, the minerals and nutrients in these are thought to significantly lower the risk of getting cancer.
