  • Prawns - Low-fat, high protein
  • Cottage Cheese - Low-fat, high protein
  • Bananas - Obviously! (Alternative Energy Foods Blog)
  • Oranges - Vitamin C - Keep that immune system topped up

  1. My faves - slow cooked sausage and bean casole
    ...jaffa cakes
    ...corned beef hash (either "cake" or pie form).

  2. Great suggestions! I love cassoulet, it was one of our favourite foods on the France and Spain tour that we did last year. Jaffa cakes are also a good bet - far lower fat than standard biscuits!
    Just followed your blog. Thanks for reading. Tim
