Food Tips of the Week
In deciding on a meal plan, it is important to attempt to moderate your consumption of fats, refined carbohydrate and salt.
The problems associated with reduced carbohydrate diets
Its all the rage, but it is really safe for you?
Eating more animal-based products may lead into high consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which most authorities believe will increase the risk of heart disease.
Remember, one fact that is often overlooked, it is very hard (although not technically impossible) for vegetarians to adopt a reduced carbohydrate diet.
Lycopene rich foods
(includes apricots, red bell peppers & tomato puree)
The phytochemical lycopene is a simple compound used to color foods and part of the carotenid family. This chemical is accountable for the dark red color of a good number of fruit, vegetables and pulses.
Fortunately, unlike numerous healthy agents, this useful phytochemical does not become less effective if heated during cooking, but is noticeably enhanced by being cooked.
Its most interesting nutritional contribution is that it behaves as an antioxidant and appears to help lower the risk of cancer.
Lycopene is the most potent fighter of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It is also thought to prevent the progression of atherosclerosis.
