This spicy marinade owes its unusual flavor to the chipotle, a smoked
jalapeno chile. Chipotles are usually sold canned in tomato paste.
Look for them at Mexican and Latin American markets. Adobo marinade
goes particularly well with pork.
Juice the oranges and lime. Finely chop chilies and garlic. Place
citrus juices, chilies, garlic, oregano, cumin, black pepper, vinegar
and salt in blender and puree until smooth.
Makes enough marinade for 1 1/2 to 2 pounds meat or chicken.

Food Tips of the Week
If you wish to become slim and boost your all round health, then, as any dietician will tell you, you really should eat a thoughtfully calculated sensible daily routine. At best, this should include five measures of grains and vegetables each day and also incorporate the right mix of important nutrients.
Some lower carb diet tips:
* Make reduced carb breadcrumbs for deep fried or oven baked foods.
Although you may be able to buy low carb breadcrumbs, you may make them yourself by using low carb bread. All you have to do is simply toast the low carb bread in a pre-heated oven on a sheet of cookie paper. Once it is quite hard and crispy, process it in your food mill. To store, keep in an airtight container.
* Understand the food labels
Don't trust sales blurb that claims to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information on the back of the can or package. Many are only marginally lower and in some cases still more than a competitors usual brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are identically the same.
