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 September
Tomato & Red Pepper Dahl
1 quite large onion
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 large red pepper chopped small
- little oil or low calorie spray
- 1 Tbs curry paste or curry powder
- 175g red lentils
- 1 tin chopped tomatoes
- 16 fl oz vegetable stock
- juice 1/2 lemon
- chopped coriander to serve if liked
Heat oil in large pan, add onion and cook gently on low heat for 5 minutes til soft. Stir in the garlic and curry and cook for a further 2 minutes so onions are covered with mixture. Don't have the heat to high or it will burn and spoil the flavor.
Stir in lentils, red pepper, tin of tomatoes and stock. Bring to the boil then reduce heat and simmer for 15 - 20 minutes. Stir in lemon juice and coriander, season to taste. This is very versatile and kidney beans or sweetcorn can be added for bulk.
NB I've been making this very useful spicy, delicious
dish for years as an accompaniment to curry although it can be served
alone with rice or baked potatoes. I freeze it in small pots for a
quick hot lunch microwaved from frozen - I even like it cold!
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.
And... now you're here it would be great if you'd like to look around at the COLORS, SHAPES, and STYLES that help you to Style Yourself Confident.
