Absolutely Apricot Recipe
3 tsp yeast, (active dry)
3 cup bread flour
2 tbsp dry milk
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp butter
1/4 cup apricot jam
3/4 cup dried apricots, chopped water
If your machine offers the option, use the "light crust" setting as
the crust browns more due to the sugar content of the jam. Try to use
a jam with a high fruit content & few additives. This recipe can be
baked on the regular, rapid bake, or timed settings. I have a DAK
Turbo II & baked it on the reg setting. It was one of the few loaves
that have turned out really well lately...think my DAK is dying; just
today ordered a ZOJI from Irwin. The bread kept VERY well in a
Rubbermaid container...was nice & fresh for a whole week (I forgot
about the last couple of slices!). I even made it when MY
mother-in-law came to visit & she LOVED it! Hope it turns out good

A few tips on healthy eating
If you enjoy eating, but want to get in shape and improve your overall vitality, then, as most people know, you need to start a thoughtfully prepared well-balanced meal plan. In a perfect world, this needs to contain 5 standard portions of grains, fruit and vegetables daily and embrace the right proportion of food types.
The case against reduced carb diets
Its popular as hell, but it is truly safe for you?
Moreover, it has been proposed that the kidneys may be given too much work to do and that the related change in acid levels in the blood causes bone damage, but some of the medical studies trying to test the hypothesis have struggled to find significant evidence of damage to the kidneys or bone damage.
Reducing carbs could mean missing out on required nutrients from healthy carbohydrate foods which must be part of any sensible diet, especially those provied by vegetables, grains and fruits.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, white onions and spring onions)
