Loomis writes: "This recipe is another treasure from Li Ochs of
Eureka Farm in eastern Washington. It's a big, hearty salad, full of
fresh herbs. And with its yogurt-based dressing it manages to be
light and sprightly, too."

Food Tips of the Week

Weight loss hints and tips

In planning a meal plan, the most important step is to make efforts to lower your intake of fat, salt and refined carbohydrates.
Some low carbohydrate diet tips:
* Don't forget the fiber Cutting the carbohydrates in your diet usually leads to fiber reduction also. Look out for reduced carb recipes that are rich in fiber to redress this.

* Use reduced carbohydrate chocolate bars for cookies and muffins. If you have taken the time to convert your tasty chocolate chip cookie or chocolate muffins recipe using soya flour, it would be crazy to put in those high carbohydrate full-sugar chocolate. Break up a reduced carbohydrate choccie bar into little pieces and use that as an alternative.

Foods containing lycopene
(includes apricot, papaya & tomatoes)

The chemical lypcopene is a simple coloring compound and member of the same family of phytochemicals as carotene. Lycopene is the agent responsible for the dark red colour of many foods.

Unlike most other vitamins, lycopene does not become less effective if cooked but is in actuality improved by going through the cooking process.

. Lycoprene's main medical value is that it behaves as an antioxidant and is thought to be of use in the fight to reduce the probabilty of contracting cancer.

This useful phytochemical is the most powerful carotenoid quencher of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It's also thought by many researchers to hamper the progression of atherosclerosis.
