    It's good for your blood and heart - plus it flavours food naturally with no fat etc

    Also full of anti-oxidants. I love garlic, one of my favourite snacks is garlic that has been roasted until sweet and soft, then smeared over some ryevita :yum:

    Oh god no - I only like the tiniest hint of garlic and only in some dishes

    That's essentially our shopping list as well, although we don't get our fruit and veg from the supermarket, we get it from the hippy box company with added dirt :D

    I trusted you and dutifully peeled some garlic cloves to roast with my carrots- not good, outside all tough and nasty, inside ok. I have since discovered the folly of my ways - http://www.elise.com/recipes/archives/001712roasted_garlic.php looks delicious and I will try again. I have loads of garlic coz it's cheap in lidl at the mo. fingers crossed i don't balls it up again. Truth be told, I don't even know what a garlic is, like is it a fruit? a veg? where does it grow? on a tree? weird!

    My diet is pretty awful but I do make a few attempts at being healthy.

    I take multivitamin, iron and vitamin C supplements

    Skimmed milk, have drank it for years, I cant stand full fat milk and not keen on semi-skimmed

    Most kinds of beans: black eyed beans, baked beans, chick peas, etc, I heat them all up together, add some spices and serve with rice for a cheap quick meal

    Multigrain or sunflower seed bread, hate nasty white sliced

    Natural plain yoghurt. Personal trainer told me off for eating so called "low fat" yoghurts as they can be very high in sugars and fake stuff

    Pure fruit juice - not concentrated

    Fresh soup, eg covent garden or supermarket own brand
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Rachels Organic Low fat/fat free yoghurt isn't high in sugars.

    It's one of the few, and also happens to be one of the nicest - go for that one :)
