I saw Paul Prudhomme, the Cajun cook, on a "Home" show this weekend.
He said the secret to cooking without fat is to have the non-stick
pan *HOT* when you put the vegetables in to start cooking. He
recommended the pan be at 350 degrees and he had a special flat,
circular thermometer that he lays in the pan to check the temperature.
Has anyone used one of these thermometers??? How did it work?
Paul's technique for cooking was also very interesting. He started by
browning sliced peppers (yellow and red) and carrots in the hot pan.
He later added moreof the same vegetables so that they would be less
cooked and have a different flavor. He said this added to the
complexity of flavors in the dish. He also added spices (Cajun of
course) at each level of cooking.
After he cooked the vegetables, he added 1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar
and 1/4 cup of tamari and cooked that down. He later added broth,
tomato sauce and corn starch... and more spices. I think he also put
in onions and garlic at the same time as the vinegar and tamari.

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 problems associated with reduced carb diets
Its all the rage, but it is really safe for you?
Multiple studies recently have shown that eating too much animal fat causes increased probability of cancer, heart conditions and other inflammatory disorders.
Eating more animal-based products might lead into increased consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which most authorities believe will increase the risk of heart disease.
Super foods containing lycopene
(includes apricots, red peppers & tomato)
Lycopene is a non-synthetic chemical compound and part of the carotenid family of phytochemicals. Lycopene is behind the deep red hue of quite a few foods.
Intrestingly, unlike many nutritional compounds, lycopene does not degrade if cooked, but is in fact increased in efficacy by being heated.
Lycoprene's key value is that it works as an antioxidant and seems to be an asset in the fight to reduce the chances of cancer.
It is the most potent eliminator of singlet oxygen, which is linked with skin aging. It's also thought to curtail the progression of atherosclerosis.
