    Hello again! We're winning you over, then? ;)

    Erm...

    You'd probably be okay with the chilli flakes. I think it'd be an official no to the Frylight and garlic (garlic especially cos of the extra carbs).

    The CD yellow book says:

    Cook in the microwave, steam or poach in water. Serve salads raw or with a little fat free salad dressing. Don't add any fat or salt, but do add herbs or a little stock if you wish.

    Dammit, I'm hungry now... :D

    Yay! :0clapper:

    I don't have one - but I don't see why not. :)

    Plain / fizzy water - 2.25 litres (or 4 pints) - that's a must, but you're probably drinking that already.

    In addition...

    black tea or coffee (obviously no sugar but you can use sweetener)

    Herbal tea (from leaf, not fruit/flower)

    and after 2 weeks, you can have Cambridge diet flavourings to add to your water - Sunshine orange (which IMHO is more lemony), Summer berry and Savoury vegetable.

    If you like Quorn head to asda, 2 bags for £2 in the frozen section and the quorn allowance is rather generous, enough to split into 2 meals.

    I can imagine george forman grill would be a good idea cause drains alot of oil out of the meat doesn't it?

    This thread is making me drool!

    I ruined Quorn last night by putting in curry powder and a couple of spices and it just tasted wrong! So I'd appreciate some advice there too :)

    I just added chilli flakes to quorn chicken pieces and it wasn't good, i won't be having the quorn chicken again, yuk. It was so dry, think i will have some juicy chicken next time.

    I just had an SS+ meal of chicken, diced up, with chopped up brocolli and mushroom and then added some chilli flakes and paprika, it works well I think! If you don't worry about completely straining off the brocolli so a little water goes in the pan too, it makes the spices a bit more like a sauce, which I find much better personally.

    I might be wrong - but I think mushrooms are fine to have - Cambridge just keep forgetting to list them when they send the booklet to the printers for a reprint.

    I find the little yellow book a very good help for when i do need to eat and need food ideas, Im so glad i can have brocoli and cauliflower with diced up chicken breast (or whole) I tend to throw in paprika and any other spices i can get my hand on.
    I too keep a bit of water from the veg to make a bit of a sauce.
    Steaming the chicken makes it more juicy and enjoyable.

    That was last time i did CD though and this time im going at it 100% SS. Im sure the Cambridge website has the yellow book on it doesnt it? Might just be me being mad :p
