Some lower carbohydrate diet tips:
* You can make really good smoothies by using reduced carbohydrate yogurt.
Ok, well, itís not technically cooking, but if you must have smoothies you can make them with low carbohydrate yogurt and your favorite fruit. Clearly, you will need to make sure you use only fruit that is low in carbohydrates and make use of the whole fruit as the fiber is beneficial.
* Make reduced carbohydrate breadcrumbs for breaded foods.
Although you can possibly buy reduced carbohydrate bread crumbs, you can also make them by using low carbohydrate bread. All you have to do is toast the low carbohydrate bread in a gas or electric oven on a sheet of cookie paper. When it is well toasted, whizz it in the food processor using a coarse blade. Keep in an airtight jar.
