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

Food Tips of the Week
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 carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* Eat regular meals
Most low carb recipes are, you won't be surpised to learn, low in carbohydrates. Your body needs energy, and carbs are a highly efficient source of energy. A lower carbohydrate diet requires more care in monitoring you energy intake, as the energy provided by fat or protein is less efficient.
* Food labels can be misleading
Watch out for food packaging that boasts to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information on the back of the package. Many are only a little decreased and in some instances still greater than a competitors usual brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are the same.
Superfoods rich in flavonoids
(inlcudes garlic, fennel, kidney bean & peppermint)
The nutrients known as flavonoids which exist in these natural foods are believed to have properties as anti-carcinogens.
Nutritionalists looking into the medical effects of flavonoids think they may well have most other health giving capabilities, including anti-dermatitis and antiplatelet properties.
The majority of these are also low in calories, so should be included in every diet.
