Asparagus In Its Own Juices Recipe
3/4 lb asparagus (medium to large)
2 tbsp unsalted butter
1/2 tsp salt
1 freshly ground pepper
CUT OFF THE TOUGH BOTTOM END of the asparagus and discard. Peel the
stalks with a vegetable peeler. Place asparagus in a skillet or
saucepan just large enough to hold them lying down and barely cover
with cold water. Add butter and salt and bring to a boil, uncovered,
over high heat. Stir the asparagus so it will cook evenly. The
asparagus is done when the water has evaporated, leaving only the
concentrated, buttery juice of the asparagus. Grind fresh pepper to
taste over the asparagus and arrange on a vegetable platter.

Food Tips of the Week
A few tips on healthy eating
If you enjoy eating, but want to get in shape and improve your overall vitality, then, as most people know, you need to start a thoughtfully prepared well-balanced meal plan. In a perfect world, this needs to contain 5 standard portions of grains, fruit and vegetables daily and embrace the right proportion of food types.
Some low carbohydrate diet pointers:
* Food labels can be misleading
Be sceptical of advertizing that claims to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information on the back of the can or package. Many are only marginally reduced and in some instances 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 exactly the same.
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.
