But how will that affect dieting?
Freezing temperatures and snow might look pretty but they don't make you want to eat salad and fruit do they?
SO how do I eat healthily, low-GI (ish) and keep warm?
Jacket potatoes seem a good option.... but, oh the carbs! I know potatoes, cooked like that are good carbs rather than bad carbs but, well, I'm not a big fan and having gone a month (nearly) with very limited quantity of carbs to start having jacket potatoes would seem very strange.
Soups seem a good option - though I have to admit I've only ever really considered soups for lunch or as a starter, not for a main course. I do love the Covent Garden soups - but some have quite a lot of cream in. I must be careful to read labels before buying I guess.
I used to be a very conscientious label reader when I turned vegetarian in 1984 - it's scary how many things you'd assume were vegetarian but aren't.... is it Walker's Cheese & Onion Crisps which aren't suitable for vegetarians? Why, when there's a suitable vegetarian alternative, do companies insist on using some animal in their product? Is it really just a case of cost? Have they no ethics?
Has anyone any other suggestions?
