Food Tips of the Week
A few tips on healthy eating
In planning a diet, the important thing is to also endeavour to restrict your ingestion of refined carbohydrates, salt and fats.
Some low carb diet tips:
* Use splenda as a substitute for sugar.
Many recipes that need sugar can be modified to make use of splenda. It is much lighter so you will need to do a bit of trial and error and it may not work for every dish, but it does bake up nice in most cases.
* Don't skip meals
Most low carbohydrate recipes are, well...., low in carbohydrates. Your body requires energy, and carbohydrates are a very efficient source of energy. A low carbohydrate diet needs more care in monitoring you energy levels, as any energy contributed by non-carbohydrate sources is far slower to act.
Foods rich in lycopene
(includes guava, red bell peppers & tomato puree)
The phytochemical lycopene is a non-synthetic coloring agent and one of the phytochemical group known as 'carotenids'. It is the reason for the red hue of many food types.
Intrestingly, unlike numerous healthy agents, this useful phytochemical is not damaged if it is cooked, rather it is actually improved by being heated.
Lycoprene's most interesting advantage is that it works as an antioxidant and seems to be of use in the battle to lower the risk of cancer.
Lycopene is the strongest quencher of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It is also thought by many experts to block the progression of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
