Alvin Kerr's Zephyr Buns Recipe
1 package active dry yeast
2 tbsp warm water -- 100-115 deg.
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
2 cup all-purpose flour -- sifted
1/4 cup melted butter
1 tsp cool water
Soften the yeast in warm water and stir in the sugar and salt to
dissolve. In a bowl, beat 2 of the eggs and blend in the flour. Then
stir in the yeast mixture and melted butter. Knead vigorously in the
bowl with the hands till the dough leaves the sides of the bowl and
is elastic, about 5 minutes. Make into a ball, put in a buttered
bowl, and cover with plastic wrap. Let rise in a warm, draft-free
place for 1 1/2 hours, or until doubled in bulk. Punch down and
divide into 18 equal pieces. Roll the pieces into balls and arrange,
well separated, on a buttered baking sheet. Let rise 30 minutes, or
until doubled in size. Brush with the remaining egg beaten with a
teaspoon of water. Bake in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for 10
minutes, or until nicely browned. Cool on a rack. From Beard on Bread

Food Tips of the Week
In deciding on a meal plan, it is important to attempt to moderate your consumption of fats, refined carbohydrate and salt.
Some low carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Understand the food labels
Don't believe sales blurb that claims to be 'low carb' - check the real nutritional information on the rear of the tin or package. A good number of are only slightly lowered and in some instances still greater than a competitors standard brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' does not always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are identical.
* Replace sugar with a low carb substitute such as splenda.
Many recipes that require sugar can be adapted to use splenda instead. It is much lighter so you will need to do a bit of trial and error and it may not work in every case, but it does bake up nice once you have it cracked.
