Afghan Chicken Recipe
1 stephen ceideburg
2 large cloves garlic
1/2 tsp salt
2 cup plain, whole-milk yogurt
1 juice and pulp of 1 large lemon, 3, to 4 tablespoons
1/2 tsp cracked black pepper
2 large whole chicken breasts, about 2 poun, ds
Long, slow marinating in garlicky yogurt tenderizes, moistens and
adds deep flavor, so you end up with skinless grilled chicken that's
as delicious as it is nutritionally correct. Serve with soft pita or
Arab flatbread and fresh yogurt.
Put the salt in a wide, shallow non-reactive bowl with the garlic and
mash them together until you have paste. Add yogurt, lemon and pepper.
Skin the chicken breasts, remove all visible fat and separate the
halves. Bend each backward to break the bones so the pieces win lie
flat. Add to the yogurt and turn so all surfaces are well-coated.
Cover the bowl tightly and refrigerate. Allow to marinate at least
overnight, up to a day and a half. Turn when you think of it.
To cook, remove breasts from marinade and wipe off all but a thin
film. Broil or grill about 6 inches from the heat for 6 to 8 minutes
a side, or until thoroughly cooked. Meat will brown somewhat but
should not char. Serve at once.

Food Tips of the Week
Drink more water. At times during a hectic day, you guess you are peckish but in truth you might only want a restorative glass of water or cranberry juice. The sensations of needing food and needing a drink are close, but one can result in a fat tummy and the alternative is ok.
Some reduced carb diet pointers:
* Fiber is crucial
Decreasing the carbohydrates in your diet usually leads to reduction in fiber also. Look at low carb recipes that are rich in fiber to restore the balance.
* Food labels can be misleading
Watch out for food packaging that boasts to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information figures on the back of the product. Many are only marginally less and in some instances still greater than a competitors normal brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' does not always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are just the same.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, white onions and green onion)
The alliaceae range of vegetables is rich in allyl sulphides, a chemical which experts believe may be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is very little scientific proof at hand, allyl sulphides are also thought by nutritionalists to reduce symptoms with colds, arteriosclerosis and diabetes.
Foods containing allyl sulfides also help you lose weight, so you should add them to your weight loss program.
