Food Tips of the Week
Weight loss hints and tips
In planning a meal plan, the most important step is to make efforts to lower your intake of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
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.
Brassicas, Superfoods that also help with your Weight loss
(eg. Cauliflower, Broccoli, Collard greens and Rutabaga)
Members of the brassica family are full of vitamins (eg.vitamin c), minerals (eg. potassium and selenium), fibre, chlorophyll and antioxidents.
In addition to their many other health benefits, the minerals and nutrients in these are believed to reduce the risk of cancer.
