Sylvia's comments: The kids at Irene's school loved it -- Irene came
home and asked me to make it again! I think it needs less fruit
spread and less pumpkin pie spice, and next time I'll use applesauce
for all the butter.

Food Tips of the Week
Advice on losing weight
Make sure that you drink enough fluids. Sometimes at some stage in a hectic work day, you feel you need food when in truth you may need a refreshing glass of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are somewhat similar, but one of them ends in weight increase and the other one leads to no damage.
Some reduced carbohydrate diet tips:
* Fiber is essential
Cutting the carbs in your meals often leads to reduction in fiber also. Look at reduced carb recipes that are fiber-rich to redress this.
* Use low carb chocolate bars for chocolate muffins.
If you have taken the time to convert your best loved chocolate cookie or chocolate muffins recipe using soy flour, you donít want to put in those high carbohydrate sugar-rich chocolate. Break up a reduced carbohydrate choccie bar into tiny pieces and use that as an alternative.
Lycopene super foods
(includes apricot, papaya & baby jackfruit)
The phytochemical lycopene is a non-synthetic compound used to color foods and member of the same group of phytochemicals as carotene. This chemical is accountable for the deep red colour of quite a few natural foods.
Fortunately, unlike numerous nutrients, it does not become less effective if cooked but is genuinely improved by the cooking process.
Its most valuable health contribution is that it works as an antioxidant and appears to help lower the risks of cancer.
Lycopene is the most powerful carotenoid quencher of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with aging of the skin. It's also believed to curtail the development of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
