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 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.
