Now these sound good to keep in the freezer. I would just have to resist the temptation to top a few with custard and have as a pudding in this cold weather.
loving the honest approach here - it really annoys me when recipes are sold as 'sugar free' when stuffed with honey or maple syrup! I might give these a try.
Debra is right - cows in this country are treated much better than in the US where it's much more intensive. If anyone watches Netflix 'What the Health', 'The Game Changers' etc, they are always referring to the US, not UK.
it is worth the effort, the shopping and the cooking. Rubbish food really does catch up on me - not 18 any more!
hmm. According to the farmers I'd need to eat nearly 6kg of ice cream to get the same amount of hormones (that's only the ones that actually affect a human) as one contraceptive pill. So I'm not too bothered. BTW growth hormones are not allowed to be fed to to livestock in the EU - and I don't imagine this will change post-brexit.
Cows milk is full of hormones and saturated fat - why anyone wants to drink that is beyond me. That's not even considering the fact that it's meant for calves, not people.
I could not completely cut out dairy as there's no good replacement for cheese and eggs. I don't think they're particuarly good for us. but they are nice!
I am one who might look like eats 'too much'. I have always have pudding after lunch! but it's pudding of nuts and raisins or a healthy muffin, so keeps me filled up and stops me snacking mid-afternoon.
Pre-planning for me too, and that means making healthy food in bulk so there's always something healthy to grab. Soup, pilafs, banana muffins...just make a load and you're sorted for the week.
I find that in a hurry equals grabbing rubbish food equals guilt equals stress! I know food shouldn't bring on guilt, but easier said than done. Definitely time for more pre-planning.
Well I pretty much ate all these today (except vinegar) so I should be burning fat like a crazy woman!
I would have argued that we don't need sugar. But I forgot that we also get sugar from natural sources like potatoes and fruit. Cut those out and you'd have no energy. Just cut out anything unnatural, that's my two pennies worth.
Slimmers World years ago taught me to have eggs for breakfast rather than my usual weetabix. I felt the difference immediately in terms of not wanting to snack mid-morning any more.
I sub my morning coffee for green tea and feel healthier - but no slimmer yet!
yep, fruit juice is all the sugar and not much of the rest. I agree - eat the actual fruit, more filling and tastes better too.
...and not too much of either. Good to see the recognition that we need some of each.
Healthy fats and natural sugars, that's the answer. Simple.
unfortunately a lot of 'delicatessen' bread products have a ton of sugar added. Not sure about the baked potato thing, though - it seems to be all to do with GI and GL. Will have to look into that!
just a request to all office snackers - think of what smells. Tuna fish and popcorn will not be popular in my stuffy office!
Some good ideas here. i had never thought of taking tuna pouches in. Much easier than wrestling with a tin opener at your desk!
Bagels are a real treat for me (cinnamon and raisin, mmmm) but I didn't realise they were so sugary. i thought all white bread products would be roughly the same. What a shame!
Rice cakes? they are really not worth eating in my opinion. Mostly air, minimal nutrition and hungry an hour later. not worth it.
baked apple - haven't had that in forever! Looks tasty, will give it a try - I think even my limited cooking skills will cope.
