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 low carb diet guidlines:
* Use soya flour or baking mix.
When you have to use flour for baked goods, substitute soy flour or a baking mix such as Atkins soy baking mix. Most of the time, you may convert your most popular recipes that use standard wheat flour to use these alternatives.
* It is possible to make wonderful smoothies by using low carbohydrate yogurt.
I know, you can't really describe it as cooking, but if you really want smoothies you can make perfectly acceptable alternatives by using low carbohydrate yogurt and fruit. Clearly, you will need to ensure you only make use of fruit that is low in carbs and use the whole fruit as you need the fiber.
