3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp black pepper

1 .cut into 8 pieces
1 lb 4 oz red potatoes, cut into
1 1/8 thick slices
1/4 cup white wine vinegar

1 .chicken, you can use 2-3
1 .whole skinned chicken
1 .breasts, cut in halves
1. Preheat the oven to 375F. Spray an 8" square baking pan with
non-stick cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl, combine the oil, garlic, salt, cinnamon, and
pepper. Add chicken and potatoes; toss well to coat thoroughly.
3. Arrange chicken in a single layer in prepared baking pan; add
vinegar, then top evenly with potatoes. Bake 40-50 minutes, until
potatoes are tender, chicken is cooked thoroughly and thigh juices
run clear when pierced with a fork. Serve topped with pan juices.
Lin's notes: Since we don't like dark meat, I used 2-3 whole skinned
chicken breasts, cut in halves, and then cut in half again. I also
peeled the potatoes, as Pat doesn't like potato skins. It turned out
great! I served this with a green salad and white wine.

Food Tips of the Week
Recognise the difference between hunger and thirst. At times when going through a hectic day, you imagine you feel hunger but if truth be told you just need a restorative tumbler of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are quite alike, but one can result in weight gain and the alternative is fine.
Some low carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* Replace sugar with splenda.
Most recipes that require sugar can be modified to make use of a sugar replacement instead. It is not exactly the same so you will have to do a bit of trial and error and it might not be perfect for every dish, but it gives very good results once you get the measurements right.
* Food labels can be misleading
Watch out for food packaging that claims to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information figures on the back of the tin or packet. Many are only marginally decreased and in some cases still higher than a competitors standard brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' does not always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are identically the same.
Flavonoid rich foods
(inlcudes citrus fruits, asparagus, garden pea & basil)
The compounds known as flavonoids discovered in these natural foods are thought by nutritionalists to have properties in preventing cancer.
Medical experts investigating the effects of flavonoids think that they may well have most other health giving capabilities, amongst them, anti-dermatitis and antioxidant properties.
Many also have a low calorie count, so should be included in every diet.
