rice papers and simply wrap the filling in lettuce leaves. The rolls
can be assembled ahead of time and served as an appetizer. Or the
wrappers can be placed on the table (with bowls of warm water for
softening) with a platter of fillings, so that guests can make a meal
of them. One half fresh pineapple, peeled, eyes removed, halved,
cored and thinly sliced, 2 tomatoes, thinly sliced, 1/2 cup fresh
cilantro leaves, coarsely chopped, 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves,
coarsely chopped Nuoc Cham dipping sauce, with carrot shreds
DIRECTIONS: Cook shrimp in salted, boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes,
or until pink and firm to the touch. Drain and cool. Peel and devein
shrimp, or serve them in their shells and let diners peel them at the
table. Blanch bean sprouts in boiling water for 1 minute. Drain and
refresh with cold water.

To assemble: Moisten rice papers in warm water for 10 to 20 seconds,
or until softened. Place a lettuce leaf inside each piece of softened
rice paper. Fill with a few shrimp, a little pineapple, bean sprouts,
tomato, cilantro and/or mint. Roll up the bundles and serve with Nuoc

Food Tips of the Week

Losing weight

Recognise the difference between hunger and thirst. At times when going through a hectic day, you imagine you feel hunger but if truth be told you just need a restorative tumbler of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are quite alike, but one can result in weight gain and the alternative is fine.
Some low carb diet pointers:
* Know what is in your food Don't believe the food label that boasts to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information figures on the back of the product. Some are only a little lowered and in some instances still higher than a competitors standard brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' does not always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are just the same.

* Use reduced carb chocolate bars for cookies and muffins. If you have converted your favorite chocolate chip cookie or chocolate muffins recipe using soy flour, you really don't want to put in those high carbohydrate chocolate chips. Break up a reduced carb choccie bar into tiny chunks and use that as an alternative.

Superfoods containing carotenes
(includes parsley, mangos and sweet potatoes)
These colorful superfoods are rich in the carotenoids believed by many play a key role in helping stop cancer, particularly of the stomach. A good number also have a low calorie count, so are ideal for including in your diet system.
