    Hiya

    I will start posting some menus too and we can give each other some ideas eh?

    I mix my porridge with soy milk. What do you use? Or I made up this special muesli from anthony worrall thompson's gi book here is the recipe - it makes 10 servings and roughly one serving is about 70g. I usually put a little milk in with it and then a good dollop of natural yog or low fat greek yog and then top it off with a few prunes

    Muesli recipe

    250g Porridge Oats
    100g bran flakes
    25g wheatgerm
    25g sunflower seeds
    50g of raisins or sunflowers
    200g apricots (says you can use figs, pears or dried fruits in gen)
    50g of hazelnuts or brazils. I used pecans though which are fine

    Mix up and put in airtight container.

    This lasts me right up to lunch.

    Sweet potato has a green light as the body digests it differently to normal potato. I had some mashed with a little olive oil and pepper along with my tea last night.

    I've ordered the Antony Worrel Thompson Cookbook, well one of them anyway and can't wait for it to come so I can find some inspiration.

    Just had two slices of Oatmeal toast for breakfast with some extra light Flora. Hopefully and apple or couple of satsumas from my snack.
