I got an email inviting me to share my favourite foods with you lot, and couldn't find a thread so I hope this is a good place :-)
Broccoli is definitely in there, we have steamed broccoli and carrots with nearly every meal! It's easy to prepare and I will often use the water underneath to boil up Dreamfields pasta, or wholemeal pasta.
I love quinoa - it's so easy to cook, boils in less than 15 minutes before those lovely little tails pop out.
It takes sauces, and the flavours of meat and fish, and I often have a fried egg on top of the leftovers for breakfast. A slight touch of salt, a LOT of ground black pepper and a goodly sprinkle of fennel seed. YUM!
I always have a salad , mostly dark green leaves, and mix with chopped onion, celery, tomatoes, grated carrot, some pine nuts, and for occasional special - a dollop of large prawns or seafood mix.
I love the Food Doctor's spelt crackers - matzos with a hairshirt :-)
They are a great snack at any time of day, sometimes with a simple butter substitute ( we use Flora Proactive, or Benecol), sometimes with peanut butter, even honey(!). Sardines, clams in olive oil, smoked salmon offcuts - there's a lot of nice fillers, and it doesn't need a lot.
I've discovered Senseo decaf coffee pods - delicious.
And I love a really rock-hard conference pear before breakfast - which mostly consists of lo-fat yoghurt, a touch of stevia, some milk, some blueberries, Tesco' salt-free muesli, some crushed californian walnuts, with which I happily watch my first Sky News of the day
