Crockpot Applesauce With Cranberries (Vegan) Recipe
10 12 medium apples
1 to 2 cups cranberry juice
1/2 lemon juiced
2 tbsp sugar, or up to 1/4cup if
1 you want it sweet
1/4 to 1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 or craisins (sweetened
Wash the apples and chop them up without peeling. Squeeze lemon juice
over them as you cut them.
Put apples in crockpot with cranberry juice -- use 1 cup if you want
the applesauce thick, more if you want it thin. Stir in sugar to suit
Let apples stew on low for 6-8 hours. About an hour or two before
serving, stir in cranberries or craisins. (All I found at my store was
craisins--since they're sweetened, I used less sugar.)
The applesauce is a very pretty pink and the cranberries & juice give
it a nice zing.
As you can see, the recipe is simple and forgiving -- let the apples
stew a little longer or a little less ~- the longer you stew them the
mushier the applesauce will be. It warms up nicely, or you can eat it

Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
One useful tip is to drink plenty of water. From time to time at some stage in a hectic morning, you guess that you want a snack but in fact you might just need a refreshing glass of water or orange squash. The feelings of needing food and needing a drink are quite similar, but one of the two can lead to a broken diet and the other is ok.
Some reduced carb diet pointers:
* Food labels can be misleading
Don't trust food labeling that boasts to be 'low carb' - check the real nutritional information on the rear of the tin or package. Quite a few are only slightly less and in some cases still greater than a competitors standard brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are just the same.
* Use soya flour or soy baking mix.
When you need to use flour for baking, substitute soya flour or a bake mix like Atkins baking mix. In many cases, you can change your most popular recipes that use standard wheat flour to use these low carbohydrate alternatives.

The chemical lypcopene is a natural coloring compound and one of the phytochemical group known as 'carotenids'. It is the agent responsible for the vivid red hue of a good number of fruits and vegetables.
Intrestingly, unlike many nutrients, lycopene not only survives being cooked, but is essentially strengthened by cooking.
Its most important benefit is that it works as an antioxidant and is believed to be of use in the fight to lower the risks of cancer.
This useful phytochemical is the most powerful fighter of singlet oxygen, which is associated with skin aging. It is also believed to prevent the progression of atherosclerosis.
