the oven heat to 325 F and continue baking about 45 minutes. A
little pecan lore from Craig Claiborne:
"Pecans are, to my mind, the most Southern of nuts. One authority I
know states that they were grown in Virginia long before George
Washington was born and that the name derives from the American
Indian word 'pakan'. The earliest colonists in Virginia and North
Carolina transliterated the word as 'pagan' and as a result, the
Pagan River, which flows through Smithfield, Virginia, was named for
the abundance of pecan trees that grew along its shores and not for
any pagans who lived nearby."

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 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.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, white onions and spring onions)
The onion family of vegetables is rich in allyl sulphides, a chemical which experts believe might be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Although there is insufficient hard medical proof at hand, allyl sulfides are also thought by nutritionalists to reduce symptoms with blood circulation, sterilization and diabetes.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are low in calories, so should be included in your weight loss program.
