Gooey Beef Burritos

A US recipe that can be converted easily. A bit lighter and more flavorful than the usual fajita or beef burrito. If you can't find mozzarella (we've found it as Tescos), use a very mild cheddar. It's nice just served with a salad, espcially if you put avocado in it!

Baked Omelet

This is a quick and easy meal and really flexible depending on how many carbs you allow yourself. Yummmmmmmmmmmy!

Cucumber Salad

A quick and light salad to make, great with some barbecue wings on a summers day.

Strawberry Cheesecake Whip

This take on a cheesecake requires only 3 ingredients and no oven - so it is a snap to make, and really REALLY yummy!

Garlic & Onion Roast Asparagus

An easy method of cooking asparagus, and a nice change from regular boiled. A Nigella Lawson adaptation.

New England Clam Chowder

Hot and hearty recipe that will warm you up on cold winter days. Very easy to make.

Spicy Low-Carb Chili

UK recipe. I make this ALL THE TIME in the winter! It is fantastic. It uses kidney beans which are too high carb for some people's diets, but this recipe is just as good without the beans - I promise! I serve this with little crackers for non-low carbers.

Tomato Fry-Up

This is a good recipe for when you've got extra veggies to cook up and no idea where to put them. It is slightly higher carb due to the tomatoes, but unless you are on strict induction (or hate tomatoes!) it is still low carb and has never halted my weight loss.
