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:
* Fiber is essential
Cutting the carbs in your meals often leads to reduction in fiber also. Look at reduced carb recipes that are fiber-rich to redress this.
* Use low carb chocolate bars for chocolate muffins.
If you have taken the time to convert your best loved chocolate cookie or chocolate muffins recipe using soy flour, you donít want to put in those high carbohydrate sugar-rich chocolate. Break up a reduced carbohydrate choccie bar into tiny pieces and use that as an alternative.
