Food Tips of the Week
In deciding on a meal plan, it is important to attempt to moderate your consumption of fats, refined carbohydrate and salt.
Some lower carb diet pointers:
* Replace sugar with splenda.
Many recipes that need sugar can be changed to make use of splenda instead. It has a different density so you will need to do a bit of trial and error and it might not work for every recipe, but it does bake up nice once you get the measurements right.
* Make low carb bread crumbs for deep fried or oven baked foods.
Although you can probably buy low carbohydrate breadcrumbs, you can make them yourself by using low carbohydrate bread. All you have to do is toast the reduced carb bread in the oven on a sheet of baking paper. Once it is quite hard and crispy, whizz it in the food processor using a coarse blade. Store in an airtight container.
