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 lower carb diet tips:
* Use soya flour or baking mix.
When you need to use flour for baked goods, substitute soy flour or a soy baking mix such as Atkins bake mix. In many cases, you may adapt your best loved recipes that use white flour to use these.
* Don't miss meals
Most low carb recipes are, not surprisingly, low in carbohydrates. Your body must have energy, and carbohydrates are a quick acting source of energy. A lower carbohydrate diet requires great care in managing your energy levels, as any energy contributed by protein and fat is far slower to act.
Foods containing lycopene
(includes apricots, red peppers & baby jackfruit)
Lycopene is a natural compound and one of the same family of phytochemicals as carotene. Lycopene is behind the red color of quite a few fruits and vegetables.
Usefully, unlike numerous nutritional compounds, it does not become less effective if cooked but is observably increased in efficacy by the cooking process.
Lycoprene's main advantage is that it works as an antioxidant and is believed to be of use in the fight to lower the chances of developing cancer.
Lycopene is the strongest quencher of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It is also thought to impede the progression of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
