1 1/2 cup espresso beans
3 cup boiling water
2 tbsp sugar
1 vanilla bean, split
4 cup milk
1 4 oz. bittersweet chocolate, choppe, d
1 whipped cream - optional
in a coffee mill, finely grind the beans. In a coffee maker, brew the
espresso with the boiling water.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon and set
aside. Using a small knife, scrape the seeds from the vanilla bean
into a medium saucepan. Pour in the milk and scald over moderate
heat, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, add chocolate and stir until
melted. Cover and keep warm over very low heat.
Divide the hot espresso into 4 cups. In a blender, begin whipping
half of the warm chocolate milk at low speed. Gradually increase the
speed to high and blend until frothy, about 1 minute. Pour the
chocolate milk into the cups of coffee, stir briefly and top each
serving with some of the milk froth. Sprinkle the reserved cinnamon
sugar on top. Serve immediately with a dollop of whipped cream, if
desired. Recipe by Yvonne Womack(Quick & Easy Cooking ch) Serves 4

Food Tips of the Week
Advice on losing weight
If you enjoy your food, but want to become thin and also improve your overall physical condition, then, as most people know, you should follow a meticulously prepared wholesome dietary regime. Theoretically, this needs to involve 5 standard portions of grains, cereals and vegetables every day and also contain the optimum fusion of important nutrients.
Some lower carbohydrate diet tips:
* Don't skip meals
Most low carbohydrate recipes are, errmm.., low in carbs. Your body must have energy, and carbs are a fast acting energy source. A reduced carb diet needs great care in managing your energy intake, as any energy contributed by protein and fat is much slower acting.
Super foods containing lycopene
(includes apricots, red peppers & tomato)
Lycopene is a non-synthetic chemical compound and part of the carotenid family of phytochemicals. Lycopene is behind the deep red hue of quite a few foods.
Intrestingly, unlike many nutritional compounds, lycopene does not degrade if cooked, but is in fact increased in efficacy by being heated.
Lycoprene's key value is that it works as an antioxidant and seems to be an asset in the fight to reduce the chances of cancer.
It is the most potent eliminator of singlet oxygen, which is linked with skin aging. It's also thought to curtail the progression of atherosclerosis.
