    Ok silly on again....

    for example if you could swap the calories and fat of two foods/drinks around what would you swap?

    I would swap mushrooms (ERGH) and cheese (yummy)

    and

    beetroot (ERGH) and chocolate (oh yes please)

    :D

    I'll eat just about anything, apart from turnip (unless it's in soup where I can't detect it), stuff like mussels and whelks (but I like scallops), and wierd French ideas like snails. So this is a tough one.

    But since you'd swap something for chocolate, that means you can have an amalgamation of things. So I'll swap turnip for the mighty Parmo!

    As far as drink is concerned I'm not arsed really. I used to drink Coke Zero a lot as it was the drink of the gods, but I've not touched anything but water, tea and coffee since I started CD. I've not missed soft drinks at all, and I think I'll just jack them in for good.

    Ah beetroot is brilliant, my dad grows it and we always get some. It just wrecks the kitchen when you cook it :D

    And parsnips too, but they're best honey glazed and roasted, on a tray with potato, shallots and butternut squash.

    <drool>

    Back to my water ;)

    I find talking about food makes me feel less hungry/want it less. And watching cookery programmes and smelling food makes me feel like I have eaten it? Weird I know!!!


    Ooh ooh! Mashed swede with butter mmmm

    Yeah, I can't stand turnip, and swede is just a turnip in disguse...

    I love courgette. I take some Quorn, chop up some courgette and do them together in the oven with a couple of mushrooms, some balsamic vinegar, chilli flakes and some herbs. Yummy, and totally allowed on 1000 calories :D

    Bacon isn't! :p

    But, you could do my courgette/quorn thing on 810, according to the CD bible. On 1000 you have a carb with it.
