Food Tips of the Week
If you wish to become slim and boost your all round health, then, as any dietician will tell you, you really should eat a thoughtfully calculated sensible daily routine. At best, this should include five measures of grains and vegetables each day and also incorporate the right mix of important nutrients.
Some low carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Dietary fiber is essential
Lowering the carbs in your meals usually leads to fiber reduction also. Look for low carb recipes that are high in fiber to redress this.
* Use soya flour or soya baking mix.
When you require flour for baked goods, substitute it with soya flour or a bake mix such as Atkins soy baking mix. In most cases, you can adapt your best loved recipes that use standard wheat flour to use these low carb alternatives.
