little pecan lore from Craig Claiborne:
"Pecans are, to my mind, the most Southern of nuts. One authority I
know states that they were grown in Virginia long before George
Washington was born and that the name derives from the American
Indian word 'pakan'. The earliest colonists in Virginia and North
Carolina transliterated the word as 'pagan' and as a result, the
Pagan River, which flows through Smithfield, Virginia, was named for
the abundance of pecan trees that grew along its shores and not for
any pagans who lived nearby."

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 reduced carb diet tips:
* Use splenda as a substitute for sugar.
Recipes that call for sugar can be changed to make use of splenda instead. It has a different density so you will need to experiment a little and it might not be perfect for everything, but it gives pretty good results most of the time.
Foods containing lycopene
(includes apricots, red peppers & baby jackfruit)
Lycopene is a natural compound and one of the same family of phytochemicals as carotene. Lycopene is behind the red color of quite a few fruits and vegetables.
Usefully, unlike numerous nutritional compounds, it does not become less effective if cooked but is observably increased in efficacy by the cooking process.
Lycoprene's main advantage is that it works as an antioxidant and is believed to be of use in the fight to lower the chances of developing cancer.
Lycopene is the strongest quencher of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It is also thought to impede the progression of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
