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 - Seeded Wholemeal Bread
Not pretending I'm a domestic goddess and make all my own bread but this is a special treat to serve with soup or cheese. Thanks to Sara Buenfeld for this lovely recipe.
- 450g wholemeal flour
- pinch salt
- 75g seed-mix
- 1 tsp bicarb of soda
- 1 Tbsp black treacle
- 150ml natural bio yogurt made up to 450ml with water
Line baking sheet with parchment and heat oven to 200C. Mix flour, seeds, bicarb and salt in a large bowl. Stir treacle into yogurt mix and when dissolved pour onto the dry ingredients. Stir together with a knife to a soft sticky dough, leave 5 mins so liquid can be absorbed.
Tip dough onto a lightly floured surface and form into a round about 18 cm across. It will still be sticky to handle, more like a scone dough than bread, so handle it carefully. Lift onto the baking sheet and bake for 25-30 mins until the crust is golden and the loaf sounds hollow when tapped underneath.
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?
Can you be healthy and indulgent at the same time? You sure can with my sweet treats!
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
stay I love to join in with yummy breakfast pancakes.
Family recipes to keep out the cold. All perfect for freezing.
