Apple & Celery Soup Recipe
1 small head of fresh celery
2 large cooking apples
1 oz butter
60 fl stock
2 medium onions, peeled and diced
1 salt and milled pepper
1 milk to finish
1 chopped parsley and browned flaked, almonds to garnish
1 tsp soft brown sugar
In a large saucepan sweat off the diced onion in the butter. Wash,
trim and dice the celery, add to the onion and continue on a low
heat. Remove and bruises from the apples and grate them into your
pan, discarding the core. Cook for a further 10 minutes before adding
the stock, seasoning and sugar ~ beware too much salt if you are
using a stock cube. Bring to the boil, then simmer, lid on, for 30
minutes - don't over cook or the celery flavour becomes jaded and the
colours dull. Allow to cool a little before liquidising thoroughly.
Pass through a large mesh sieve to ensure there are no stringy
threads of celery remaining. Check seasoning and consistency, adding
a little milk if needed. Serve in warmed bowls, sprinkled with
parsley and the browned almond flakes.

Food Tips of the Week
A few tips on healthy eating
In planning a diet, the important thing is to also endeavour to restrict your ingestion of refined carbohydrates, salt and fats.
Some reduced carb diet pointers:
* Use low carbohydrate chocolate for cookies and muffins.
Once you have converted your favorite chocolate cookie or muffins recipe using soy flour, you really don't want to add in those high carbohydrate sugar-rich chocolate. Cut up a low carb chocolate bar into tiny chunks and use that as an alternative.
* Eat regular meals
Most reduced carbohydrate recipes are, you won't be surpised to learn, low in carbs. Your body requires energy, and carbs are a fast acting energy source. A low carbohydrate diet needs care and attention in managing your energy intake, as the energy provided by protein and fat is far slower to act.
Superfoods containing flavonoids
(inlcudes cranberry, kale, scarlet runner bean and basil)
The nutrients known as flavonoids which are present in these fruits and vegetables show promise as anti-carcinogens.
Doctors who have been studying the properties of flavonoids suspect that they may well also have many other health benefits, amongst them, anti-asthma and anti-platelet powers.
A good number are also good for weight loss, so should be included in your weight loss program.
