I'm here and feels good to have a brand new group, just born, lol..

Just for anyones info.. I have just read in a thread about pshyllium husks.. Its a fibre supp that thickens up shakes too, to make them into puds or angle delight texture. Gonna look out for them and see how they are. Anyone else using them? xx

Hi Nikky, I think Witchy is going to do something and get a banner for us with our name. I just wanted to get started. Anyway I'm off to do my ironing. I'll be back on later and will catch you then if you're still around. xxx

Evening all,

What can you use pshyllium husks in? Could you use them in porridge and shakes? Maybe thicken the soups?

I never add anything to the cambridge meals, it may be time for me to get inventive. I've read that people blend ice in their shakes and add spices to soups etc.

Maybe we could share hints and tips like that?

Cheeky chops.. I do use ice to blend my shakes and its lovely. Apparently you can use the husks with your shakes and they can be thickened. 3tsp can turn a shake into an angel delight, 2 can thicken your shake and 1 can thicken your soup. You can't use it in Porridge or it would be too thick. Ppl have used them in the shakes, hot and have said that its more like having porridge that way. I will get some, try them and let you know. Its allowed on the CD too, so its all good and its a fibre supp. xx

Also put chilli flakes in my veg soup, adds heat and black pepper in the mush one. You could use Cayenne too, not sure about salt tho. Give it a go, will add variety to the diet and as we are all doing this for a long while. Variety is good. Off out now, so chat later. xxx

Why dont you just use the mix a mouse from your CDC you only need a spoon full and less water with your shake and it turns it thick like a mouse??

Hi Everyone

I'd like to join you all. Hopefully I will be able to get on here at least once a day, though once I'm back at work I might be exhausted for a few days until I get used to the hours again...

Hi everyone! Good to be "home" in our brand new thread :D.

What a great WI result Louie lou!

About the shake mixing with ice, I do it to every meal and is it just heaven! It becomes more like a milkshake, cold and yummy :D. I use 8 ice cubes and about 3 table spoons of water. I might experiment with the ice, but this is working great! I mix the ice and water first, then add the shake.

Welcome Shopaholic!

I am exhausted from another day of nothing but studying. Tomorrow and two days ahead will be the same for sure. I am glad I am on CD so I don't have to think about food at all :D.

Talk to you later!

Sorry :eek: I made it sound like a lot of water, but week 1 I struggles with plain water so only managed 2 or 3 pints aday, this week I had the water flavour and I've drunk 4 or 5 pints.

It just shows water does help.:)
