Before you ask; no, no-one looked like that at my session.

Healthy Heart: Rehab and Diet

(4)
April 30, 2013

Today was my first rehabilitation session with the Cardio group. I think that I was the youngest,  but there was one other chap (a foreigner like me) who may have been a year or two younger. Either way, he and I were the “youngsters” of the group. Having to wait for over seven and a… Read More ›

Hamburgers, "Quorn Style."

Quorn-tastic and not so Quorn-tastic

As Meg and I continue our search for more Quorn products as part of our new “healthy” eating regime we have actually found some Quorn things we don’t like. But before we venture into that territory, I would like to say that we love the hamburger patties that we found. They look sort of like “fast food”… Read More ›

Chicken Style and Leek Pies....Yum!

To Quorn or not to Quorn…

I did not have to cut anything into small pieces apart from the mushroom that is a staple ingredient of most of our favorite dishes. Admittedly it… Read More ›

Chilli Quorn Carne Another Healthy Heart Meal

After my previous attempt at “healthy” chilli –Turkey mince chilli– I was a bit skeptical about trying another variation on the healthy alternative theme. Despite my best efforts the turkey chilli, even with all the extra spices added, still tasted like turkey chilli. It was edible sure, but it was not a screaming success. I… Read More ›

Healthy Heart Lasagne or Tastes Good & Good For You

If these pictures look a little fuzzy or a bit out of focus, it’s because I was weak from hunger while we labored our way through the first of my ‘healthy heart’ meals that were on my new FLORA proactiv (cholesterol lowering butter replacement) recipe booklet. Out of all the recipes listed, the Winter Vegetable Lasagna… Read More ›
