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 reduced carbohydrate diet tips:
* Use low carb chocolate for cookies and muffins.
If you have gone to the trouble of converting your most popular chocolate chip cookie or chocolate muffins recipe using soy flour, you really don't want to mix in those high carbohydrate sugar-rich chocolate. Chop up a reduced carbohydrate chocolate bar into tiny pieces and use that in its place.
* Know what is in your food
Watch out for the food label that boasts to be 'low carb' - check the real nutritional information on the reverse of the can or package. Some are only slightly decreased and in some instances still higher than a competitors normal brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are exactly the same.
(inlcudes lettuce, kohlrabi, kidney bean & coriander)
The nutrients called 'flavonoids' found in these foods are believed to be helpful in preventing cancer.
Nutritionalists studying the medical effects of flavonoids believe they could have numerous other health giving properties, including anti-allergic and antiplatelet capabilities.
The majority of these also have a low calorie count, so you should add them to your weight loss regime.
