  • Thanks so much for the tips Sherrie.

  • Thanks Sherrie, looks delish! I found a (somewhat similar) recipe on taste.com and wonder if it could be turned into a low-carb dessert??...I admire your wizardry in the kitchen in turning normally off-limits desserts into low-carb wonders for us all. Plus how low-carb is polenta, do you know? I'll copy/paste the recipe here and see what you think. Texy Lemon & almond cake with pine nuts [removed cut and paste to respect copyright]

    Oh, no probs babe. I can't vouch for the beef one personally as I haven't made it yet. But they're all pretty low carb and I thought Thai lovers would have a lot of the ingredients in their cupboards too. So love to hear if it's yum! Cool.

  • Oh, and I have yet to kick myself up the bum and start excersizing yet either, apart from some fitball routines that I do sporadically. Having said that, when I do do the fitball routine (I follow a dvd) it really makes me sweat, so I can recommend it, but I need to do it regularly and get some cardio happening too. I bought the fitball with an accompanying 1/2 hour dvd at k-mart and think it's a good start for excersizing at home if your not excersizing yet & I'm pretty sure they're still selli…

    I've been craving Thai food lately and upon flicking through a few of my Thai cookbooks, I've bookmarked some of the more low carb recipes within. So I thought I'd share a few here, with their respective nutritional values too. Of course, being Thai food, ingredients such as soy sauce, brown sugar, palm sugar etc are used in various recipes and can be substituted accordingly (with tamari for soy sauce, for example). However, take a look at the nutritional info I've added at the end of each recip…

    An interesting article from the Sydney Morning Herald: High carbohydrate diet tied to cancer High-carb diet ... delicious but deadly? Put that sandwich down, now. As if the link between carbohydrates and the muffin-top spilling over your waistband wasn't bad enough, new research indicates that a high-carbohydrate diet may also influence your cancer risk and the growth of tumours. Scientists at Canada's British Columbia Cancer Research Centre found that mice fed on a high-protein, low-carbohydrat…

  • As a regular reader of 'The Monthly' magazine, I stumbled across the following article about food production that is mightily scary if you ask me. Indeed it serves as a strong argument for educating ourselves about where our food comes from and what our daily bread contains in this day and age. Unfortunately I can't find the entire article, however what I'll copy and paste of it below is enough to get you thinking, regardless. "Taste Making - Food Technology and the Manufacture of Flavours". By …
