Hi all.
I'm getting sick to death of eating the same thing all the time. There's very little variation in my diet!
Has anyone got any recipes they think I should give a try?
I'm not much of a meat or fish eater other than chicken or pork. Tried the diet coke chicken, diet pork chicken, sticky chicken.. just stuck for ideas now!!

Any help appreciated :)

No offence but there are about 200 pages of recipes in this forum ... if you are bored already then you are just not trying hard enough lol

There are enough recipes on here to keep you going for an age, not to mention all the recipe websites like bbcgoodfood.com and recipe books available, many of which can be made SW friendly.
