Black 'n' White Brownies Recipe
1 cup cake flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup shortening, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar replacement
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp water
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut, grated
1 tsp coconut milk
1 oz baking chocolate, melted
These brownies are mailable.
Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Cream shortening and
sugar replacement until light and fluffy. (My note: be sure to use a
sugar replacement that does not lose sweetness when heated -
Aspertame is not suitable.)
Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in
vanilla extract and water.
Divide batter into two equal parts. To one part add unsweetened
coconut and coconut milk. Stir to completely blend. To the remaining
half, beat in the melted chocolate.
Spread coconut mixture on bottom of well-greased 8-in square pan.
Spread chocolate layer on top of coconut layer. Bake at 350 F for 25
to 30 min. Cut into 1 x 2 inch bars.

Food Tips of the Week
If you wish to become slim and boost your all round health, then, as any dietician will tell you, you really should eat a thoughtfully calculated sensible daily routine. At best, this should include five measures of grains and vegetables each day and also incorporate the right mix of important nutrients.
The case against low carbohydrate diets
Its popular as hell, but it is truly safe for you?
Remember, one point that is usually overlooked, it is very difficult (though certainly not impossible) for vegetarians to take up a low carb diet.
Moreover, it has been hypothesised that the kidneys may be given too much work to do and that the resulting change in blood acidity levels can cause bone damage, but some of the studies trying to test the theory have struggled to find real evidence of damaged kidneys or bone damage.
Lycopene rich foods
(includes grapefruit, red bell peppers and baby jackfruit)
Lycopene is a naturally occurring coloring agent and part of the same family of phytochemicals as carotene. Lycopene is the agent responsible for the deep red colour of a good number of natural foods.
Usefully, unlike numerous vitamins, lycopene is not damaged during the cooking process, but is observably made more effective by going through the cooking process.
Its most valuable advantage is that it serves as an antioxidant and appears to be of use in the battle to reduce the probabilty of contracting cancer.
This useful phytochemical is the most efficacious eliminator of singlet oxygen, which is connected with aging of the skin. It's also thought by many researchers to prevent the development of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
