Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
One useful tip is to drink plenty of water. From time to time at some stage in a hectic morning, you guess that you want a snack but in fact you might just need a refreshing glass of water or orange squash. The feelings of needing food and needing a drink are quite similar, but one of the two can lead to a broken diet and the other is ok.
Some lower carb diet tips:
* Make reduced carb breadcrumbs for deep fried or oven baked foods.
Although you may be able to buy low carb breadcrumbs, you may make them yourself by using low carb bread. All you have to do is simply toast the low carb bread in a pre-heated oven on a sheet of cookie paper. Once it is quite hard and crispy, process it in your food mill. To store, keep in an airtight container.
* Understand the food labels
Don't trust sales blurb that claims to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information on the back of the can or package. Many are only marginally lower and in some cases still more than a competitors usual brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are identically the same.
Brassicas, Super foods that aid Dieting
(includes Arugula, Celery, Mustard greens and Chinese cabbage)
Known as cruciferous vegetables, these are jam-packed with vitamins (including vitamin c and folate), minerals (including potassium and selenium), fibre, chlorophyll and antioxidents.
Amongst many health giving properties, the vitamins and nutrients in these are believed by nutritionalists to reduce the risk of cancer.
