Food Tips of the Week

Its extremely popular, but it is truly safe for you?
The majority of the negative side effects observed, like tiredness, stomach upsets, or bad headaches seem to pass quickly, but critics contend that low carb diets are not without serious long term side effects.
Cutting out carbs could mean missing out on required nutrients from healthy foods which must be part of any well-balanced diet, particularly those provied by vegetables, grains and fruits.
Superfoods containing lycopene
(includes apricot, red bell peppers & rosehip)
Lycopene is a non-synthetic coloring compound and one of the carotenid family. It is behind the dark red color of some fruit, vegetables and pulses.
Unlike numerous nutrients, lycopene does not become less effective if subjected to heat, but is truly improved by being heated.
Its most important theraputic value is that it serves as an antioxidant and is believed to be of use in the fight to lower the risk of contracting cancer.
This useful phytochemical is the strongest fighter of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with aging of the skin. It is also thought by many experts to hamper the progression of atherosclerosis.
