Place flour, sugar, dry sugar substitute, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves
in mixer bowl and mix a low speed to blend well. Combine HOT

applesause and mix with baking soda with the flour; it doesn't work
as well that way), and add, along with oil, walnuts and raisins, to
flour mixture. Mix at medium speed until flour is moistened and
batter in creamy. Spread batter evenly in a 9" by 13" cake pan that
has been sprayed with pan spray or greased well with margarine. Bake

Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
When deciding on a weight loss program, it is essential to try to restrict your intake of salt, fat and refined carbohydrate.
Some low carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Make reduced carb bread crumbs for breaded foods.
Although you can buy reduced carbohydrate bread crumbs, you may make them yourself by using reduced carb bread. Simply toast the low carb bread in the oven on a sheet of baking paper. Once it is well browned, grind it in your blender. Keep in an airtight jar or container.
Foods containing carotenes
(includes paprika, collard greens and tomato puree)
These orange and green natural foods are rich in carotenes believed by nutritionalists play a key role in minimizing the risk of cancer, particularly cancers of the stomach and lesophagus. A good number also have a low calorie count, so should be included in every weight loss program.
