    I was just wondering what everyone classes as healthy foods? are some fattening foods better to have as they are healthy like nuts & dried fruit?

    my list so far is:
    oats
    muesli
    wholegrain/stoneground bread
    eggs
    organic butter (better than artificial spreads)
    nuts & seeds
    veg
    fruit
    olive oil
    fish
    chicken
    lean meat
    honey
    wholemeal pasta
    wholemeal rice
    organic semi skimmed milk

    Looks like you are on the right track, i wouldn't add many other foods to your list, though i guess there are probably others you could eat :)

    Healthy eating, using SW as a guide.
    I agree with your list as them all being healthy, but I'm trying to lose weight so therefore I substitute some things on your list for example, I don't eat any butter or spread (but I don't eat bread either), and I use fry light instead of oil.

    The only thing I'd add to it is fat free yoghurt, fromage frais and then you've probably covered everything I eat.

    My menu today:
    breakfast - porridge made with half semi skimmed milk and half water, with mango
    lunch - baked potato with non fat cottage cheese, smoked mackerel,
    dinner - slow cooked gammon joint (cooked in apple juice with cinnamon and nutmeg) with crushed new potatoes and veg, muller light yoghurt.

    I've snacked on fruit (mostly to make sure I got to my 5-a-day).

    I do think you need to be careful with dried fruit - it's easy to eat a lot compared with the same fruit in it's original form. I could maybe eat two or three fresh apricots as a snack but give me a bag of dried apricots and they could easily be eaten within a day, which I guess would be a lot more kcals. There is no doubt that they are a healthy food and good for you but if the aim of the game is to lose weight, I think you have to go careful.

    Have to agree. I could easily eat a whole bag of dried apricots but just a couple of fresh ones.

    Sounds about right. I'm a veggie so eat quite a bit of quorn too which is lower fat than meat and I'd say fairly healthy. I usually eat fruit, rice cakes, dried fruit and raw vegetables for snacks.
