Healthy recipes!

Hi ladies,



I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread where we can share healthy recipes! Then when we can't decide what to have for tea we know where to look!



I have had lots of lovely recipes from the ladies over on Doris' wedding dress diet thread and I am sure there are plenty more of you who have culinary delights out there!



So share away ladies!

    Ladies heres a good tip for your lunch, since finding i have high cholesterol i started mega cutting down on my sat fat consumption



    I eat cous cous for lunch, you can buy packets that are already flavoured, all less then £1 very tasty, add a little water then stick in the microwave for 30/40 seconds and stir until fluffy then eat, i add a few olives and sliced chillies in mine as this is a great way to combat the bad cholesterol with the mono sat in olives and the chillies are a natural anti biotic and keep colds at bay. all less then 4grms fat. 0.2 sat fat



    garlic, chilli, ginger are all very very good for you in keeping healty and well
