1 1/2 cup sugar
2 tbsp vanilla sugar
2 cup milk
9 egg yolks
1 1/2 cup grain alcohol (95-percent)
Mix sugars. Boil milk with half of sugars for two minutes. Let it
cool down. (For the milk it is easiest to use a pot which can later
be used with a mixer.)
Mix well (mixer at high speed) the yolks with the other half of the
sugars. Using mixer add to milk. Then (still using mixer) add alcohol
slowly. (The result is quite fluid, sweet and strong.) Bottle and
let rest for two weeks to let the mixture thicken.
* Egg-cognac: a potent sweet alcoholic beverage -- Advokaat is the
Dutch word for egg cognac. It is highly recommended for A. I.
(Alcohol Imbibing) meetings. This recipe is my modification of a
recipe I obtained in Poland. It makes a potent, superb advokaat (or
egg-cognac). The milk and eggs are healthy, the sugar and alcohol are
not. Yield: Serves 4-8.
* This advokaat can be drunk or, better yet, eaten with a spoon; it
is quite thick.
: Difficulty: easy.
: Time: 5 minutes preparation, 2 weeks aging.

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.
The case against reduced carbohydrate diets
Its all the rage, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
Eating more animal-based products might lead into high consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which a good number of authorities believe will increase the risk of coronary disease.
Although there is some anecdotal evidence that suggests that reduced carbohydrate diets can help with your weight loss program, some of this some anecdotal evidence has caused controversy among nutritionists, and their relative safety has been challenged
Foods high in flavonoids
(inlcudes lettuce, kale, kidney bean and chamomile)
The compounds known as flavonoids which exist in these fruits and vegetables are believed to be good in helping to prevent cancer.
Nutritionalists researching the medical effects of flavonoids believe that they may well also have numerous other health benefits, including, but not limited to, anti-asthma and antiplatelet activities..
A good number are also good for weight loss, so should be included in every weight loss program.
