If you haven't tried flame-toasted wheat tortillas you're in for a
treat. Like toast they can be topped in endless ways.
Place a tortilla directly over a medium high gas flame, or place on a
cookie rack set over an electric burner. Toast until surface becomes
lightly flecked with char, about 10 to 20 seconds, and tortilla
begins to fill with steam. Turn over and toast the other side. A
perfect tortilla will fill with steam and puff up if it has no tears
If desired, brush tortilla with oil or butter. Place in a towel-lined
basket while toasting the remaining pieces. Serve piping hot.

Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
When deciding on a weight loss program, it is essential to try to restrict your intake of salt, fat and refined carbohydrate.
Some low carb diet tips:
* Use soya flour or soy baking mix.
When you have to use flour for baked goods, substitute it with soy flour or a baking mix such as Atkins bake mix. In most situtations, you may convert your most popular recipes that use white flour to use these.
* Use splenda as a substitute for sugar.
Many recipes that require sugar can be adapted to make use of a good quality substitute like splenda. It has a different density so you will need to experiment a little and it may not work for everything, but it gives very good results once you have it cracked.
Lycopene rich foods
(includes apricots, red bell peppers & tomato puree)
The phytochemical lycopene is a simple compound used to color foods and part of the carotenid family. This chemical is accountable for the dark red color of a good number of fruit, vegetables and pulses.
Fortunately, unlike numerous healthy agents, this useful phytochemical does not become less effective if heated during cooking, but is noticeably enhanced by being cooked.
Its most interesting nutritional contribution is that it behaves as an antioxidant and appears to help lower the risk of cancer.
Lycopene is the most potent fighter of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It is also thought to prevent the progression of atherosclerosis.
