Hi

Cheeper than the 'diet shakes.,' an on-the-go' filler or meal replacement (my dietitian says a heaps healthier alternative)
Time preparation: 5 minutes
Cost: very low

1 drink bottle

1/2 milk (of any sort)
1/4 yoghurt smooth (not Greek) or able to get through the top/straw of the drink bottle
A good dob of regular cream, this is the 'magic' thickner and filler

Shake to mix, but not to thicken or curdle cream!
fill to top with milk and/or yoghurt for consistency

A stick wand will blend ripened fruits finely enough for flavouring.

Once I could laugh with everyone
Once I could see the good to me
Holding the world inside
Now the world is grey to me
Nobody can see you gotta believe it
Oh oh the night comes down
And I get afraid of losing my way
Oh oh the night comes down
And it’s dark again

This is a great recipe I use as a sweet option when I need a treat. It just cooks for 25mins at 180 degrees .

Enjoy

Hi Marly.

Would you believe my purpose in life is to rescue books from the recycling bins.

One I rescued a few weeks ago is called the "low FODMAP diet" by Dr Sue Shepard Many letters after her name .

In the books opening pages it states that:

1. Fodmaps are molecules found in foods which in some people are poorly absorbed or not at all..

2. Food continuing down the inner regions of the body then arrive in the large bowel.

3. The normal bacteria which live in the bowel can then use Fodmaps as a food source.

4. When this occurs they produce a gas which can then cause wind bloating abdominal pain and absorbtion in to the blood stream.
The symptoms experienced by many with irritable bowel syndrome and fructose malabsorbtion.

5. Breath test for in Australia for Hydrogen and Methane byproducts are available For further info see ( Monash university) and Wikipedia

6. A friend of mines daughter 10 year old has Coelic disease along with type 1 diabetes. A distressing illness in one so young. Similar symptoms.

As alway Greeting from Arjay and the Goldfish.

Hi Arjay
Thank you for your feedback.

I think food can impact so much on our health and well being and not nearly enough research is done on this. I advocate heavily for diet to be part of treatment plans, often falling on deaf ears.

After years of book collection I now have to do a massive clean out. Unfortunately this has me filling the recycle bin :( because I can't give them away!

Good luck with your recues. Sometimes you will find a gem. I'm glad you have managed just that.

Alternate pizza sauce.
My wife has just recently found out that if she eats tomatoes she loses her voice which can be a pain or a pleasure depends on how one feels.
I decided to play around with some bits and pieces and came up with a new pizza sauce
Ingredients:
1 onion chopped fine
1/2 capsicum any colour
Beetroot and feta (black swan dip)
French onion dip ( any brand)
Sauté the onion and capsicum in a small amount of olive oil
Remove from heat
Add 1dessert spoon of each dip and blend together
That's it
This can be adjusted to suit but is tasty and a great alternative to other pizza sauces

as long as I wake up alive I'm happy
Because it could be worse
