Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
When deciding on a weight loss program, it is essential to try to restrict your intake of salt, fat and refined carbohydrate.
Some lower carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Make low carbohydrate bread crumbs for breadcrumb coated foods.
Although you can possibly buy low carbohydrate bread crumbs, you can make them yourself by simply using low carbohydrate bread. All you have to do is toast the reduced carb bread in your oven on a baking tray. Once it is hard, grind it up in your food mill. To store, keep in a tupperware container.
* Don't skip meals
Most reduced carb recipes are, errmm.., low in carbs. Your body must have energy, and carbs are a fast acting energy source. A reduced carbohydrate diet needs more care in managing your energy intake, as any energy given by protein and fat is much slower acting.
Flavonoid rich foods
(inlcudes citrus fruits, asparagus, garden pea & basil)
The compounds known as flavonoids discovered in these natural foods are thought by nutritionalists to have properties in preventing cancer.
Medical experts investigating the effects of flavonoids think that they may well have most other health giving capabilities, amongst them, anti-dermatitis and antioxidant properties.
Many also have a low calorie count, so should be included in every diet.
