1/4 tsp thyme leaves

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.
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.
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.
