Default Banana Icecream?

I'm sorry if this is already down on this thread. I've searched, but can't find it. However, I am new so please make allowances.

Peel and finely chop a banana(s).
Blitz in processor, adding a bit of skimmed/semi skimmed milk until the consistency of soft ice cream.

Try and freeze the chopped bananas spread out on a plate or something because I found out the hard way, that if you blitz in big lumps, it burns out the processor motor

Made the pumpkin and parsnip cassoulet on the weekend, have taken it to work in a flask today and am currently eating it - delicious! Used butternut squash instead of pumpkin, also omitted the sugar as it's quite sweet anyway. Also I halved the recipe but it still makes loads! Highly recommended!!

Default Chickpea Raita

This is a really simple and delicious recipe and amended from an unhealthier version I use at home during festivals.

(serves 2)
1 can cooked chickpeas
1 tomato (deseeded and chopped)
1/2 white onion (chopped)
1/4 cucumber (sliced and halved or quartered)
A pinch of garam masala
300ml low fat yoghurt

This is super and easy and fast to prepare.

1) Rinse and drain the chickpeas and leave to the side.

2) Wash and cut the tomato, onion and cucumber.

3) Pour yoghurt into a bowl or container and add the the chickpeas, tomato, onion and cucumber. Stir.

4) Garnish with a few pinches of garam masala.


If you plan to use it for lunch over a few days or not eat it right away, it lasts better if you core the cucumber as that can end up getting squishy.

A lot of chickpeas are packaged in brine so it is best to rinse thoroughly.

Other options:

You can use different vegetables to your taste and change it up a bit so it doesn't get boring. I find I enjoy it best when there is a mix of soft and crunchy food in the mix. Other variations I use are

1 small potato (peeled, diced and boiled)
1/2 green pepper (chopped)
Coriander, mint or other leaves to garnish
Chili powder, curry powder, etc instead of garam masala to add flavour
Small pakoras (best handmade and enjoyed as a treat, this lowers the nutritional value of it because these are fried and not particularly healthy - I can add the recipe for these is requested but did not include as it will no longer be healthy or quick)

How to make SCONES

Serves: 15

  • 450g self-raising flour
  • a pinch of baking powder
  • a generous pinch of salt
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 110g unsalted butter, diced
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 50ml double cream
  • 100 to 200ml milk, as needed
  • 1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water to glaze


Prep:30min › Cook:15min › Ready in:45min

  1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Lightly grease a baking tray.
  2. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl and stir in the sugar. Using your fingertips, lightly rub in the butter until the mixture resembles dried breadcrumbs. Add the egg, cream and enough milk to moisten (start with 100ml, adding more if needed. Mix well until it has a soft, doughy texture - but it shouldn't be too moist.
  3. Gather the dough into a ball and turn it out on to a floured surface, then roll lightly with a rolling pin to 2.5cm (1 in) thick. Cut out with a round cutter, transfer to greased baking tray and brush the tops with the egg glaze. Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until well browned.
enjoy it!!!!

Default eat more to loss weight

It can seem terrifying to eat more, but rest assured, not only will your metabolism get the kick it needs to jumpstart your weight loss again, your body could also end up shedding more fat and hanging onto precious muscle, which in the long run will help keep you strong and help encourage the weight to stay away.

Hi guys,

Here is a recipe to prepare a delicious, spicy blend packed full of iron and low in fat to boot. It's ready in under half an hour, or can be made in a slow cooker.

• 2 tsp cumin seeds
• pinch chilli flakes
• 2 tbsp olive oil
• 600g carrots, washed and coarsely grated (no need to peel)
• 140g split red lentils
• 1l hot vegetable stock (from a cube is fine)
• 125ml milk (to make it dairy-free, see 'try' below)
• plain yogurt and naan bread, to serve

• STEP 1
Heat a large saucepan and dry-fry 2 tsp cumin seeds and a pinch of chilli flakes for 1 min, or until they start to jump around the pan and release their aromas.

• STEP 2
Scoop out about half with a spoon and set aside. Add 2 tbsp olive oil, 600g coarsely grated carrots, 140g split red lentils, 1l hot vegetable stock and 125ml milk to the pan and bring to the boil.

• STEP 3
Simmer for 15 mins until the lentils have swollen and softened.

• STEP 4
Whizz the soup with a stick blender or in a food processor until smooth (or leave it chunky if you prefer).

• STEP 5
Season to taste and finish with a dollop of plain yogurt and a sprinkling of the reserved toasted spices. Serve with warmed naan breads.
