Quorn Lasagne

Quorn Lasagne Thumbnail

With two teenagers in the house, meal times often become complicated. One does not cope well with one-pot amalgams which are my fall back staple and the other is a VEGETARIAN! It is not unusual to have three different dishes on the go and I'm afraid the vegetarian often suffers from my lack of imagination [...]



Beetroot and Protein Powder Truffles

Beetroot and Protein Powder Truffles Thumbnail

These were supposed to be chocolate truffles with a hidden ingredient but I got so carried away grating an excess of roast beetroot that I was unable to hide the purple vibrancy of the mix. I tried to smother them in a thick dusting of cocoa powder but there was no fooling my diners - [...]

Running Snacks and Protein Thumbnail

I'm on the look out for the perfect running snack to sustain me through the long runs. I know that the sugar laden syrupy shots are very popular, but they make me gag and besides, refined carbs play havoc with my weight. As a runner with a weight problem I struggle with the concept of [...]

I've been watching back to back episodes of the Biggest Loser for quite some time now and in the later series the Bodybugg became an integral feature on the flabby arms of the contestants. I'm not sure why the new gadget took so long to register with me but within three days of me acknowledging [...]
