Brie En Croute Recipe
16 oz brie wheel
4 oz mushrooms, shiitake
1 butter, for sauteing
1/4 tsp tarragon
2 garlic clove
2 oz wine
1/2 lb filo
Also, baked Brie is fabulous. If you want to get fancy with the brie,
saut# some mushrooms with tarragon, garlic and a bit of wine until the
mixture is almost dry (the mushrooms should be sliced or chopped, by
the by), take a wheel of brie, slice it in half, put the mushroom mix
in the middle, and wrap it in phyllo or puff pastry (the frozen puff
pastry works fine). Put in the freezer for 20 minutes to firm
At this point, it can be moved to the fridge and kept until needed.
Bake it in a moderate oven until the puff pastry browns. Let sit for
15-20 minutes before cutting.
You can also use puff pasty scraps to cut out little leaves and stuff
to put on top of the whole thing for decoration. This is best with
the small wheels, about
5 inches in diameter.

Food Tips of the Week
Rather than thinking about which food types you really should leave out of your meal plan, focus on the nutritionally sound foods that you are able to introduce to your meal plan. If you manage to inject some nourishing grains and vegetables into your daily routine, you'll soon see that stop feeling hungry and have a significantl;y decreased risk of giving in to those damaging midday snacks.
Some reduced carb diet guidlines:
* Make low carbohydrate bread crumbs for deep fried foods.
Although you can possibly buy low carbohydrate bread crumbs, you can make them at home by using reduced carbohydrate bread. All you have to do is simply toast the low carbohydrate bread in a preheated oven on a sheet of cookie paper. Once it is quite hard and crispy, whizz it in your food mill. To store, keep in an airtight jar or container.
* You can create really great smoothies by using reduced carbohydrate yogurt.
Yes, you can't really describe it as cooking, but if you adore smoothies you can throw them together with low carb yogurt and fruit. Of course, you will need to make sure you only make use of fruit that is low in carbohydrates and use the whole fruit as you need the fiber.
Foods rich in lycopene
(includes guava, red bell peppers & tomato puree)
The phytochemical lycopene is a non-synthetic coloring agent and one of the phytochemical group known as 'carotenids'. It is the reason for the red hue of many food types.
Intrestingly, unlike numerous healthy agents, this useful phytochemical is not damaged if it is cooked, rather it is actually improved by being heated.
Lycoprene's most interesting advantage is that it works as an antioxidant and seems to be of use in the battle to lower the risk of cancer.
Lycopene is the strongest quencher of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It is also thought by many experts to block the progression of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
