nuts, sugar, cinnamon and rose water in small bowl. Using half of
filo sheets (cover remaining with plastic wrap to prevent from drying
out), place 3 sheets in bottom of lightly greased 13x9" baking sheet.
Brush with some of margarine. Sprinkle evenly with nut mixture. Place
remaining sheets over nut filling, brushing after every third sheet
and top sheet. 2. Cut baklava at 1-1/2" intervals diagonally to form
pattern of about 35 diamond shapes. Bake at 400'F. 25 minutes or
until golden. Place on wire rack to cool. Drizzle Rose Water Syrup
evenly over top and allow to soak several hours. Stud each
diamond-shape with whole clove.

Food Tips of the Week

Losing weight

Rather than thinking about which food types you really should leave out of your meal plan, focus on the nutritionally sound foods that you are able to introduce to your meal plan. If you manage to inject some nourishing grains and vegetables into your daily routine, you'll soon see that stop feeling hungry and have a significantl;y decreased risk of giving in to those damaging midday snacks.
Some low carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Food labels can be misleading Be sceptical of advertizing that claims to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information on the back of the can or package. Many are only marginally reduced and in some instances still greater than a competitors standard brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are exactly the same.
