All-American Cole Slaw Recipe
1 1/2 lb green cabbage, quartered, cored, and
3 tbsp vinegar, cider, malt, distld
2/3 cup mayonnaise
1 onion, small, grated (optnl)
2 carrot, medium, grated
1/4 tsp salt
In a large mixing bowl, toss the cabbage with the vinegar and salt.
Grate the carrots and optional onion directly into the bowl. Add the
mayonnaise and toss well.
The slaw can be served immediately, but it is much better -- more
melded and tender -- if allowed to stand and tossed occasionally for
30 minutes to 1 hour. For a very limp slaw, refrigerate several hours
The law on cole slaw is cabbage and vinegar. All the rest is
interpretation. Adjust the recipe to taste: Add more mayonnaise,
substitute sour cream or yogurt for some (but not all) of the
mayonnaise, or add a supplement of one or the other. Add diced green
and/or red pepper if you have one, celery or caraway seeds if you
like that kind of thing, or shredded celery for an extra fresh taste.

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 reduced carbohydrate diet tips:
* You can make delicious smoothies using reduced carb yogurt.
Admittedly, you can't really call it cooking, but if you must have smoothies you can throw them together with reduced carb yogurt and fruit. Obviously, you should ensure you use fruit that is low in carbohydrates and use the whole fruit as the fiber is beneficial.
* Fiber is essential
Decreasing the carbohydrates in your diet usually leads to fiber reduction as well. Check for reduced carbohydrate recipes that are rich in fiber to restore the balance.
Super foods containing lycopene
(includes apricots, red peppers & tomato)
Lycopene is a non-synthetic chemical compound and part of the carotenid family of phytochemicals. Lycopene is behind the deep red hue of quite a few foods.
Intrestingly, unlike many nutritional compounds, lycopene does not degrade if cooked, but is in fact increased in efficacy by being heated.
Lycoprene's key value is that it works as an antioxidant and seems to be an asset in the fight to reduce the chances of cancer.
It is the most potent eliminator of singlet oxygen, which is linked with skin aging. It's also thought to curtail the progression of atherosclerosis.
