Buckwheat Flatbread Recipe
1 cup Buckwheat flour
1/2 cup All-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon Salt
2/3 cup Water
"Buckwheat flour is available in health food and specialty stores. It
has a musty, earthy flavor which gives an interesting twist to this
simple, traditional flatbread-style cracker. It goes well with fruit
and cheese. In the food processor or in a big bowl, combine the
flours and salt. In a slow stream, stir in enough of the water to
form a soft, but not sticky, dough.
Remove to a well-floured surface or pastry cloth and knead lightly.
Cut the dough into 6 equal portions and roll each piece into a large,
thin circle, approximately 1/16 inch thick and 8 inches in diameter.
Prick each circle all over with the tines of a fork.
To cook, gently place the circles, one at a time, on a hot griddle or
saute pan. Cook over medium heat until pale brown spots begin to
develop on the underside of the cracker, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the
cracker to cook the second side. Continue flipping in this manner
until the cracker feels dry and crisp. Remove to a rack to cool. If
upon cooling the cracker remains slightly pliable, you may return it
to the pan for further cooking, or place in a preheated 350~F. oven
for a few minutes, until fully "dried out." Yield: 6.
VARIATIONS: For a crunchier cracker, add 1/3 cup buckwheat groats and
increase the water slightly.
Buckwheat has a strong flavor. According to your taste, you may wish
to increase the all-purpose flour and decrease the amount of

Food Tips of the Week
At the start of a diet, people most certainly look at food store and big brand food items labelled 'low in fat'. To do this is far too often a miscalculation, in that an item could be significantly reduced in fats, but nevertheless elavated in calories and carbs.
Some low carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Use splenda as a substitute for sugar.
Most recipes that need sugar can be adapted to make use of a sugar replacement instead. It doesn't weigh the same so you will need to experiment a little and it might not work for every dish, but it gives pretty good results once you get the measurements right.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, chives and spring onions)
The onion, leek and garlic range of vegetables is rich in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe might be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is precious little definitive proof published, allyl sulphides are also believed to help with colds, arteriosclerosis and fatigue.
Foods containing allyl sulfides also have a low calorie count, so you should add them to your diet system.
