Roast Carrot Hummus

I think I’ve said before that New-Year-New-Youisms can bore right off for me, however I find myself in this early end of 2018 facing some needed changes in the kitchen, in particular by addressing my nutritional intake. Many sources agree that the end to my woes will come from more protein.

Shakshuka. Sort of.

Last week I read a very amusing article on BS slimming fads and how almost all celebrity fronted diet books feature some kind of chilli spiked eggs for breakfast.

The Skinny Thing- Spicy Pilaf

I came up with this frankly brilliant dinner whilst trying to research a weight watchers friendly dish that I could feed to guests on a Friday night without violating the Geneva convention. One serving will set you back maybe 7 smart points or if you are on no count method no more than 3 of […]
