Christmas Orange Bread Recipe
1/2 cup homemade wonderslim (or
1 prune babyfood)
3 eggs equivalent of egg
1/2 cup orange juice
4 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup mashed banana
2 1/2 cup unbleached flour
1 1/2 mixed candied fruit
Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, raisins, nuts, and candied
fruit together. Combine and beat slightly the banana and orange
juice; Set aside. Beat eggs into Wonderslim/prunes one at a time.
Alternately, add prune/egg mixture and banana/orange mixture to dry
ingredients mixed with fruits and nuts. A wooden "fork" works well
for the mixing. Pack into 9X5X3 loaf pan lightly sprayed with Pam and
lined with wax paper. Bake at 350o for 1 hr. or until done. Cool 20
min. before removing wax paper and turning out on a rack. Cool before
Icing: Mix powdered sugar into an egg white until smooth and easily
spreadable. You want a thin icing. If you get it too thick, add a
little skim milk. Dot icing with cut up candied (glace') cherries as
After frosting is firm, wrap in aluminum foil and refrigerate.
Improves with freezing.
Notes: I usually double or triple the recipe. Otherwise, you'll have
leftover icing (which is also good on cookies). You can divide the
dough out into smaller pans; makes nice gifts.
I have modified the original posted recipe for Homemade Wonderslim by
decreasing the lecithin:
3 c. water 1 12 oz. pk. prunes (cut-up type) 1 T. unbleached lecithin
1/4 tsp. citric acid
Cover prunes with water and bring to a boil. Cool. Blend prunes,
water, lecithin, and citric acid in blender until smooth. Pour in
clean quart jar and refrigerate. Keeps up to 30 days. I pour mine
into old jelly jars and freeze them. I use 1:1 amounts when
substituting for oleo in recipes.

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 lower carb diet tips:
* Know what is in your food
Be sceptical of food packaging that boasts 'low carb' - check the real nutritional information on the rear of the tin or package. Many are only a little less and in some cases still greater than a competitors standard brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are just the same.
* Fiber is crucial
Lowering the carbohydrates in your diet usually results in fiber reduction as well. Look at reduced carb recipes that are fiber-rich to redress this.
Foods rich in lycopene
(includes apricots, papaya & tomato puree)
The chemical lypcopene is a naturally occurring coloring agent and a member of the carotenid family of phytochemicals. It is accountable for the vivid red colour of many fruits and vegetables.
Unlike many other healthy agents, it is not damaged if it is cooked, rather it is actually increased in efficacy by cooking.
Its key health contribution is that it is an antioxidant and is thought to help reduce the probabilty of cancer.
It is the most effective remover of singlet oxygen, which is connected with skin aging. It is also thought by many experts to curtail the growth of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
