Asian Millet Salad Recipe
2 cup cooked millet
6 tbsp mirin or dry sherry
1 10-oz package of tofu,
3 tbsp soy sauce
3/4 cup chopped snow peas
1 1/2 tbsp rice or cider vinegar
3/4 cup frozen peas, thawed
1 clove garlic, minced
1 8-oz can sliced water
1 tsp sugar (or other sweetener)
1/2 cup chopped scallion
In a large bowl, combine the millet, tofu, snow peas, peas, water
chestnuts, and scallion.
In a small bowl, stir together the mirin, soy sauce, venegar, garlic,
and sugar. Pour over the salad and toss to combine.

salads chill for awhile to let the flavors blend before I served
them. I think that this step is a particularly good idea for the
Asian Millet salad, as it allows the tofu to absorb the flavors of
the dressing. If you try these, I hope you enjoy them as much as I

Food Tips of the Week
In planning a meal plan, the important thing is to try to cut down your ingestion of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
Some low carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Understand the food labels
Don't believe sales blurb that claims to be 'low carb' - check the real nutritional information on the rear of the tin or package. A good number of are only slightly lowered and in some instances still greater than a competitors standard brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' does not always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are identical.
* Replace sugar with a low carb substitute such as splenda.
Many recipes that require sugar can be adapted to use splenda instead. It is much lighter so you will need to do a bit of trial and error and it may not work in every case, but it does bake up nice once you have it cracked.
