Food Tips of the Week
A few tips on healthy eating
If you enjoy eating, but want to get in shape and improve your overall vitality, then, as most people know, you need to start a thoughtfully prepared well-balanced meal plan. In a perfect world, this needs to contain 5 standard portions of grains, fruit and vegetables daily and embrace the right proportion of food types.
Some low carb diet guidlines:
* Use reduced carbohydrate chocolate bars for cookies and muffins.
If you have converted your tasty chocolate cookie or muffins recipe using soya flour, it would be crazy to put in those high carbohydrate normal chocolate. Cut up a low carb bar of chocolate into tiny pieces and use that in its place.
* Don't skip meals
Most low carbohydrate recipes are, not surprisingly, low in carbs. We all need energy, and carbs are a very efficient source of energy. A low carbohydrate diet requires great care in controlling your intake of energy, as any energy contributed by fat or protein is much slower acting.
