Chapatis #1 Recipe
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2/3 cup unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 cup water approximately
1/4 tsp salt (optional)
Make up the dough approximately 1/2-hour before you need it. Allow the
dough to rest about 10 minutes. Pinch off portion of dough to form a
ball about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Roll ball flat on lightly
floured surface. Pat back and forth between hands until thin.
(Patting makes the chapati puff when baked.)
Cook on top of the stove on ungreased griddle until browned and
puffed. Use medium heat so the griddle does not get too hot.

Food Tips of the Week
Weight loss hints and tips
In planning a meal plan, the most important step is to make efforts to lower your intake of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
Some low carb diet guidlines:
* Food labels can be misleading
Watch out for sales blurb that boasts 'low carb' - check the nutritional information on the back of the product. Quite a few are only marginally decreased and in some instances still more than a competitors standard brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are identical.
* You can create really good smoothies with reduced carbohydrate yogurt.
Ok, well, itís not technically cooking, but if you really want smoothies you can make them with low carb yogurt and fruit. Obviously, you will need to ensure you use only fruit that is low in carbohydrates and use the whole fruit as the fiber will help.
