2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp dried rosemary
3 lb lamb leg, butterflied
1/2 cup red wine

olive oil and rosemary. Reserve 2 tb of marinade for sauce. Brush

bake lamb at 425F(220C) fat side up for 20 minutes or until just
pink. Remove from oven and let rest on a serving dish for 10 minutes.
Pour off any fat in pan. 4. Add red wine to pan and reduce to 1 tb.
Add beef broth, reserved marinade and any extra lamb juices from the
serving dish. Bring to boil and hoil for 2 minutes. 5. Slice lamb in
thin slices against the grain. Serve with some sauce poured over.
Serve with a Merlot wine from Ontario Canada, California USA, or St
Emilion. A chianti is another fine match.

Diet hints and tips
In deciding on a diet, it is essential to attempt to lower your consumption of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
Some lower carb diet pointers:
* Make reduced carb breadcrumbs for deep fried foods.
Although you can probably buy reduced carbohydrate bread crumbs, you can also make them by using reduced carbohydrate bread. All you have to do is toast the reduced carbohydrate bread in a gas or electric oven on a cookie sheet. Once it is hard, whizz it in the food processor using a coarse blade. Keep in an airtight container.
* Make great smoothies by using reduced carb yogurt.
Yes, itís not technically cooking, but if you adore smoothies you can make them with reduced carb yogurt and your favorite fruit. Clearly, you will need to make sure you only make use of fruit that is low in carbohydrates and use all of the fruit as the fiber is important too.
Lycopene super foods
(includes apricot, red bell peppers & rosehip)
The nutrient lypcopene is a naturally occurring chemical compound and a member of the same group of phytochemicals as carotene. Lycopene is accountable for the red color of quite a few natural foods.
Usefully, unlike most other nutritional compounds, this useful phytochemical does not degrade if cooked, but is noticeably increased in efficacy by cooking.
Lycoprene's most valuable health contribution is that it is an antioxidant and appears to be an asset in the battle to lower the risks of developing cancer.
This useful phytochemical is the most potent fighter of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It's also believed to slow down the growth of atherosclerosis.
