Low Fat High Fibre
I look for Low Fat High Fibre (easy) recipes. This suits my digestive system and certainly helps with weight control, both important factors as we reach middle age and beyond!
We eat little processed food anyway and love vegetables but I love to feel full.
So I'm always looking for easy ways to add more essential fibre into our diet: oats, wholegrains in bread and cereals, potatoes in their skins, brown pasta/rice, lentils, chickpeas and, of course, beans of every description!
Yourself Confident is all about how to FEEL GOOD and LOOK GOOD anyway so
healthy eating is part of looking after yourself.
fat content to a minimum in everyday recipes and adding in additional
fibre is the basis of all the recipes I share with you - but they have
to be tasty and enjoyable too!
Recipe of the month April 2021
- 2 Weetabix, I like to vary the flavor
- 1 cup dried fruit of your choice: here I've used raisins and apricots, you can use cranberries, date and walnut, raisin and grated carrot etc.
- 1 cup brown sugar, any type
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup self raising flour
- 1 tsp mixed spice
- 1 egg
Break up the Weetabix in a mixing bowl, add fruit, sugar and milk, mix well, cover and place in the fridge for several hours. It's easier to leave overnight. In the morning all you do is add the flour, spice and egg, mix well and pour into a lined loaf tin. Bake for 50 mins at 180C or 350F. My oven cooks a little hot so I turn that down just a fraction. Enjoy!
I've been making this loaf for 40 odd years. The Weetabix factory is only a few miles away so my kids were brought up on it! So easy, delicious, wholesome with infinite variations. It keeps well so perfect for when we can mix again and have a cup of tea in the garden!
Dining solo or feeding a crowd, there is little that's more comforting and heart-warming than a bowl of hot home-made soup.
But time is short and you need recipes that throw together. I like uncomplicated!
Good soup recipes are low fat eating at it's best. These recipes are quick, delicious, filling, nourishing, good for the figure, impressive to serve and cheap to make. What's not to like?

like my food and don't want to feel guilty reaching for a slice of
chocolate cake with a cup of tea; and when the grand children come to
