Food Tips of the Week
In planning a meal plan, the important thing is to try to cut down your ingestion of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
Some low carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Make reduced carb bread crumbs for breaded foods.
Although you can buy reduced carbohydrate bread crumbs, you may make them yourself by using reduced carb bread. Simply toast the low carb bread in the oven on a sheet of baking paper. Once it is well browned, grind it in your blender. Keep in an airtight jar or container.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, chives and spring onions)
The onion, leek and garlic range of vegetables is rich in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe might be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is precious little definitive proof published, allyl sulphides are also believed to help with colds, arteriosclerosis and fatigue.
Foods containing allyl sulfides also have a low calorie count, so you should add them to your diet system.
