Apricot Dressing For Turkey Recipe
1 cup dried apricots, snipped
1 1/2 cup water or chicken stock
1 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pine nuts
12 slice bread, dry, cut small cubes
Bring the apricots and water (or chicken or turkey stock) just to a
boil in a saucepan. Let stand for 10 minutes. Add the celery, nuts
and bread. Toss lightly to moisten the bread and blend the
ingredients. Spoon into an oiled baking dish with a cover.
Bake in 350 F oven for about 40 minutes. Remove the cover the last 10
minutes of baking to brown the top of the dressing.

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 low carb diet tips:
* Know what is in your food
Be sceptical of food packaging that boasts 'low carb' - check the nutritional information on the reverse of the can or package. Some are only a little decreased and in some instances 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 just the same.
Foods containing carotenes
(includes paprika, collard greens and tomato puree)
These orange and green natural foods are rich in carotenes believed by nutritionalists play a key role in minimizing the risk of cancer, particularly cancers of the stomach and lesophagus. A good number also have a low calorie count, so should be included in every weight loss program.
