Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
When deciding on a weight loss program, it is essential to try to restrict your intake of salt, fat and refined carbohydrate.
Some reduced carb diet pointers:
* Make reduced carbohydrate bread crumbs for deep fried foods.
Whilst you can buy low carb bread crumbs, you may make them yourself by simply using low carb bread. Simply toast the low carb bread in a preheated oven on a cookie sheet. Once it is well toasted, process it in the food processor or blender. To store, keep in a tupperware container.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, leeks and spring onions)
The onion, leek and garlic family of foods is rich in allyl sulphides, a chemical which experts believe might be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is not much scientific proof at hand, allyl sulfides are also believed to aid in antiinflammatory effect, arteriosclerosis and physical exhaustion.
Foods containing allyl sulfides also have a low calorie count, so should be included in your weight loss program.
