Lemon Icebox Pie (Lowfat Version) Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

8 oz container nonfat yogurt
6 whole graham crackers
1 tbsp canola oil
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup cornstarch
2 lowfat vanilla yogurt (8 oz each)
1/2 cup egg beaters® 99% egg
1 substitute
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/2 tsp lemon extract
1/2 tsp almond extract
3 egg whites
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp vanilla extract

Recipe Preparation

Place a coffee filter in a medium strainer. Spoon the plain yogurt
into the filter and set the strainer over a deep bowl. Cover,
refrigerate and allow to drain for 8 hours or overnight. Discard the
drained-off whey. Refrigerate yogurt until needed.

Crumble the graham crackers into the work bowl of a foodprocessor.
Process with on/off turns to make crumbs. Add the canola oil and
process to combine.

Coat a 10-inch pie plate with nostick spray. Press the crumbs into
the pan to make a crust. Chill.

In a 2-quart saucepan, whisk together 1/2 cup honey and the
cornstarch. Whisk in the vanilla yogurt and drained plain yogurt.
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens
and boils.

Remove from heat. Pour some of the hot mixture into the egg
substitute. Stir. Very slowly whisk that mixture back into the
remaining hot mixture. Reduce heat to low. Cook, stirring constantly,
for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in lemon juice, lemon
extract and almond extract. Spoon into the prepared crust. In a
medium bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar at medium speed
until foamy. Add 1 tablespoon honey and the vanilla. Beat at high
speed until stiff peaks form. Spread over pie filling, avoiding gaps
where the meringue topping meets the crust.

Bake at 325 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes, until meringue is golden.
Chill.

Food Tips of the Week

Losing weight

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.
The argument against reduced carbohydrate diets
Its extremely popular, but it is truly safe for you?
The majority of the negative side effects stated, such as general tiredness, diarrhea, constipation, or headaches seem to be only temporary, but critics contend that low carb diets are not without permanently harmful side effects.
Moreover, it has been suggested that the kidneys may be given too much work to do and that the consequential change in blood acid levels can result in bone loss, but some of the studies testing the hypothesis have struggled to find real evidence of damage to the kidneys or loss of bone.
Lycopene rich foods
(includes apricots, red bell peppers & tomato puree)

The phytochemical lycopene is a simple compound used to color foods and part of the carotenid family. This chemical is accountable for the dark red color of a good number of fruit, vegetables and pulses.

Fortunately, unlike numerous healthy agents, this useful phytochemical does not become less effective if heated during cooking, but is noticeably enhanced by being cooked.

. Its most interesting nutritional contribution is that it behaves as an antioxidant and appears to help lower the risk of cancer.

Lycopene is the most potent fighter of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It is also thought to prevent the progression of atherosclerosis.
