The first post back is always tricky and my mind has gone slightly blank at the pressure. So let’s keep it simple, stupid! (I’m talking to me, not you.)
This year I recommend you eat less meat and more fibre – you may already be doing this. Sugar is still the enemy but carbohydrate – good carbohydrate – is no longer the great satan. Especially for women over 30 – 35ish (*cough*), you no longer require – or process especially well – a lot of protein from red meat. Did we ever process red meat well? I don’t know. Maybe I just ate too much of it.
To that end, I made myself the other day a really tasty thing, which I must recommend to you.
Red camarge rice, peas and parmesan
2 handfuls red camarge rice
1 handful peas
a grating of parmesan
1 Cook the rice according to the packet instructions (it takes a while, probably 25min). You can do this earlier in the day and then heat up later, which is why rice is our friend.
2 Either add the peas to the rice towards the end of the cooking time or throw them, frozen, in a pan with the rice later
3 Add salt and pepper, some olive oil (be generous) and a good grating of parmesan and you have there before you a really healthy, simple lunch or dinner.
