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!
