    I have noticed that after a while some of the things on group disscussion drop off and are lost, one we really don't want to loose is our group recipes so if we post them in this thread we will be able to keep them. Be good if any all ready posted could go on this thread. (y)

    Here's my low and tasty chicken chow mien ready meal from Asda. 304 calories. Great and quick for fast days. Plus you know exactly how many calories there are.
    I added a few broccolie heads in. This is my tea tonight. I'm having it earlier as I'm cooking for the rest of the family and I know I'll pic otherwise.

    My nearly everyday, for the last 3 weeks , and I'm not bored of it yet , brunch.
    I've got 2 eggs on Burgen toast today though, I usually only have one.
    I'm doing rib eye steak, proper chips and steamed veg for tea but it won't be till 6.30. So the eggs will keep me going.
    When I was a small child we had eggs everyday for breakfast. Be it poached , boiled, scrambled. Maybe that's why I'm not bored of them. I always sent our kids to school with an egg breakfast too when at primary school.
    I'm sure , having a poached egg on toast for my brunch Everyday , has helped me lose 1 stone ( yipeeeeeee) doing the fab funster 5/2 diet since the 5th of January.

    JM's spicy sweet potato chips:

    chop up sweet potatoes into chips. add to bowl, add a little oil, cumin, red chilli powder or chilli flakes, black pepper. spred on tray, bake in oven approx 20 + mins?

    OK they are a bit soft compared to real chips, and the addition of oil makes them less LOW GI...but nice with a steak chicken anything really...add homemade coleslaw

    Hi all,

    I found this when I was doing Slimming World back in the dim distant past - don't think I have ever seen it in any books though - it is as close as you can get to a healthy bread pudding - and tastes just like it, and is dead easy to make:

    WEETABIX CAKE

    3 crushed Weetabix
    1/2 cup of Candarel
    1/2 cup of water
    1/2 cup of skimmed milk
    1 Cup flour
    1 Cup mixed fruit
    1 egg
    1 teaspoon mixed spice
    Juice and rind of 1 lemon

    Mix all ingredients together in large mixing bowl.
    Turn into greased loaf tin and bake for 1 hour Gas mark 4, 180 degrees

    We only use semi skimmed milk, so I just used 1 cup of semi skimmed milk instead of 1/2 cup of skimmed milk and 1/2 cup of water.

    Hope you like it.

    Sorry Bev, I accidentally hit the post reply button before I had finished typing the recipe in full! I thought the edit button removed the post from the page so it could be corrected!

    The recipe really is lovely, but quite 'moreish' so won't last long!

    Is it a bit like malt loaf. With less calories? I've always got the ingredients in, so I think I'm going to have a bash at that. Thanks

    More like bread pudding than malt loaf, but a bit of both I suppose. (y)

    Another tomato soup recipe (from SW)

    2 tins tomatoes
    1 tin carrots
    1 tin baked beans
    5 small or 2 big pickled onions

    Bung everything into a blender, blend well. Tip into a jug and microwave for a couple of minutes. You really need the pickled onions otherwise it's too sweet.

    Tastes just like He*nz tomato soup!
