split pea soup

As the days turn colder there is just something so simple and satisfying about split pea soup.  I  love that the split pea soup gets really thick and substantial, very economical too.  You get a "lotta food" for "little bucks"! Please note that legumes (lentils and pea's) are only permissable during phase 3 of Atkins.

slow cooked soft beef shin with root vegetables and ale

Entertaining in a regular group makes it so  much easier for the host or hostess.  It really takes the load off. Last Saturday night was exactly one of these occasions.  We had two couples over, the one crowd brought all the lovely fancy cheeses, mediterranean dips and crackers to enjoy with pre dinner drinks. The other couple brought the apple crumble and cream for dessert. I was happy to serve the main course.  This soft beef shin dish was a hit!

benefits of walking

While it's true that walking doesn't burn fat as fast as jogging or Spinning classes or any other high-intensity workouts, however numerous research indicates that it is a extremely effective weight reduction tool.  For instance, a survey published inside the Journal of the American Medical Association discovered that brisk walking is very efficient for reducing deep abdominal fat, probably the most threatening type of fat.

the best boontjiesop

South African soups are typically very thick and contain a cut of meat or animal bone to give that delicious rich flavour.  Boontjiesop as it is affectionaly known in Afrikaans or bean soup is one of those soups that we have all grown up with.  Either an aunt, mom or gran made it.  In those days a pressure cooker was the kitchen appliance of the day.  I prefer making it in the slow cooker - low and slow does the trick every time! Please note that legumes (sugar beans) are only permissable during phase 3 of Atkins.

Emotional Eating is usually related to overeating (although, under-eating can easily play a role when it comes to ones emotions).  Most people have dealt with emotional eating, on some level, and along with the plethora of junk food that is now readily obtainable, it could be super easy to hide amongst, what most magazines love to call, “comfort” food.

easy stir fry recipe

This is a favourite dish of mine, it's so simple and easy to make.  This is a basic and easy stir fry recipe, which could be eaten as a lunch or served at dinner as a side dish.  Stir frying is a great technique for quick cooking of veggies as they are flash fried but still al dente - providing you don't leave them on the stove for too long! Be sure not to over load your wok in order to get a good result.
