Asparagus With Toasted Pine Nuts & Lemon Vi Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

1 lb asparagus, fresh spears
3 tbsp pine nuts
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tbsp lemon juice, fresh
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp basil, dried whole
1/2 tsp oregano, dried whole
1 pepper, freshly ground

Recipe Preparation

Snap off tough ends of asparagus. Remove scales from stalks with
knife or vegetable peeler, if desired. Place spears in a steaming
rack over boiling water; cover and steam 4-5 minutes or until spears
are crisp-tender. Transfer to a serving platter. Sautee pine nuts in
a small skillet over medium heat 2-3 minutes, until browned. Set
aside. Combine olive oil and remaining ingredients in a medium
saucepan; stir with a wire whisk to blend. Cook over medium heat 2-3
minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring constantly. Pour over
asparagus. Sprinkle with pine nuts. Let stand to room temperature
before serving.

Food Tips of the Week

Dieting made easy

One useful tip is to drink plenty of water. From time to time at some stage in a hectic morning, you guess that you want a snack but in fact you might just need a refreshing glass of water or orange squash. The feelings of needing food and needing a drink are quite similar, but one of the two can lead to a broken diet and the other is ok.
Some reduced carb diet guidlines:
* Understand the food labels Watch out for the food label that proclaims 'low carb' - check the nutritional information on the rear of the can or package. Some are only a little less and in some cases still higher than a competitors normal brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are identical.

* Use reduced carbohydrate chocolate for chocolate muffins. If you have taken the time to convert your tasty chocolate chip cookie or muffins recipe using soy flour, it would be madness to mix in those high carbohydrate standard chocolate. Chop up a reduced carb bar of chocolate into tiny chunks and use that in its place.

Healthy foods with carotenes
(includes parsley, kale and tomato puree)
These plants are rich in the carotenoids believed to play a role in helping prevent cancer, spefically cancer of the lungs. The majority of these also have a low calorie count, so should be a part of every diet.
