Lemon Icebox Pie (Lowfat Version) Recipe
8 oz container nonfat yogurt
6 whole graham crackers
1 tbsp canola oil
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup cornstarch
2 lowfat vanilla yogurt (8 oz each)
1/2 cup egg beaters® 99% egg
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/2 tsp lemon extract
1/2 tsp almond extract
3 egg whites
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
Place a coffee filter in a medium strainer. Spoon the plain yogurt
into the filter and set the strainer over a deep bowl. Cover,
refrigerate and allow to drain for 8 hours or overnight. Discard the
drained-off whey. Refrigerate yogurt until needed.
Crumble the graham crackers into the work bowl of a foodprocessor.
Process with on/off turns to make crumbs. Add the canola oil and
process to combine.
Coat a 10-inch pie plate with nostick spray. Press the crumbs into
the pan to make a crust. Chill.
In a 2-quart saucepan, whisk together 1/2 cup honey and the
cornstarch. Whisk in the vanilla yogurt and drained plain yogurt.
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens
Remove from heat. Pour some of the hot mixture into the egg
substitute. Stir. Very slowly whisk that mixture back into the
remaining hot mixture. Reduce heat to low. Cook, stirring constantly,
for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in lemon juice, lemon
extract and almond extract. Spoon into the prepared crust. In a
medium bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar at medium speed
until foamy. Add 1 tablespoon honey and the vanilla. Beat at high
speed until stiff peaks form. Spread over pie filling, avoiding gaps
where the meringue topping meets the crust.
Bake at 325 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes, until meringue is golden.

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.
Some lower carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Make low carbohydrate breadcrumbs for deep fried foods.
Although you can probably buy low carbohydrate breadcrumbs, you may make them yourself by simply using low carb bread. Simply toast the low carbohydrate bread in a gas or electric oven on a baking tray. Once it is well toasted, grind it up in the food processor using a coarse blade. Store in a tupperware container.
Superfoods containing lycopene
(includes guava, papaya & tomato sauce)
The nutrient lypcopene is a natural coloring agent and part of the same group of phytochemicals as carotene. This chemical is responsible for the dark red color of some fruit and vegetables.
Fortunately, unlike many other nutritional compounds, lycopene is not damaged if it is cooked, instead it is in actuality improved by going through the cooking process.
Its most important theraputic value is that it acts as an antioxidant and seems to be an asset in the battle to reduce the probabilty of cancer.
Lycopene is the most efficacious quencher of singlet oxygen, which is associated with skin aging. It's also thought to block the progression of atherosclerosis.
