Getting Fit For Forty

Hi fellow foodies and food preparers!

For those of you following The Body Coach 90 Day SSS plan will know how Cycle 2 is quite demanding on quantity of food.

With this in mind, I decided to have a play with doubling up the quantity trying to forward plan as well as meeting all the necessary quantities for carbs, protein, veg etc. That’s when I made the build (Made Up) up curry! Bosh!

I promised to share the recipe so here you go.

All quantities should be doubled as per your plan.

Chicken, sour cream, chilli powder, garlic powder, paprika, garum masala, cumin, seasoning.

Mix the above in a sandwich bag and ensure the chicken is coated and all spices are mixed. Allow to marinade for 1hour if poss.

Cut up the following veg in slices and cook in a pan with a little coconut oil.

Onions, peppers, tomatoes (cubed)…

Oaty Biscuit Bars

Tripping Through Treacle!

Tripping Through Treacle

Another recipe from me! This one is super-easy, quick and a hit with the kids (and my husband!). Dare I say it, I think that these biscuit bars taste alot like Hobnobs, minus the chocolate (a much-loved shop-bought sweet oat biscuit for those of you outside of the UK).

This recipe is based on one that I saw on the fabulous You Tube channel forJessBeautician- she makes delicious vegan meals and snacks. I highly recommend you check out her channel if you like plant-based food. These biscuit bars are dairy-free and can be gluten-free too (if you ensure you use gluten-free oats).

As some of you may know, I follow theOvercoming Multiple Sclerosis programmeto try and keep myself as healthy as possible. As this recommends that MSers avoid coconut products (due to its high saturated fat content), I decided to omit the coconut oil that…

Nomenom, not me!   Ü   I was getting bored with the same old look, so… Let me know what yall think!! By the way, I have a new Web address, it’s…although you can still get here with the .com address. And, my new email is!

I really don’t have time to write at this time, school has got me so busy. Just a week and a half and I get a two-week break!! So, this is gonna be short and sweet. Oh, I fell off the diet wagon! The holidays got the best of me, so I’m going to start back after the New Year.

Tonight, I made square hamburgers. I started doing them years ago because sliced bread is square. I make them pretty thin, and they’re super fun! I use a small dish that I have to form the patties.
