Fat Free Granola Recipe
1/4 cup raisins
1 cinnamon, cloves
Pour boiling water over the raisins and let sit for five minutes.
Core and cut the apples (I use McIntosh when available) into thick
slices and place in a casserole dish. Add raisins and mix. Sprinkle
on cinnamon (about 1/2 teaspoon) and a pinch of ground cloves.
Bake covered in 350 F oven for 30 - 40 minutes. At this point the
apples should be tender, but not mushy. Add enough granola to cover
the apples and put uncovered casserole back in oven for about 15
minutes or until granola is browned.
Serve warm with soymilk or an ice cream-like substance. Or serve cold
with warm soymilk or warm custard.

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 argument against reduced carb diets
Its popular as hell, but it is truly safe for you?
Increased consumption of animal-based products may lead into high consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which many authorities believe will increase the chance of heart problems.
Moreover, it has been suggested that the kidneys can be given too much work to do and that the resulting change in blood acidity causes bone loss, but some of the scientific studies testing the theory have failed to find significant evidence of damage to the kidneys or bone damage.
Superfoods containing flavonoids
(inlcudes olive oil, brussels sprouts, soy and chamomile)
The flavonoids which exist in these types of food are thought to have properties in helping to prevent cancer.
Experts investigating the medical effects of flavonoids suspect that they could have many other health giving properties, amongst them, anti-viral and antitumor properties.
Most also have a low calorie count, so make sure you add them to your weight loss regime.
