In the article in today’s Daily Mail, Wednesday’s pull-out discusses preserved foods, such as Kefir milk, certain cheeses, yoghurt, sauerkraut and kimchis. These foods are natures probiotics for the human body.

These foods assist and aid our internal microbes, those that reside in the gut and the ones we wish to nuture, the good microbes, within our Microbiome.

Fermentation produces microbes that are beneficial for us, they are a diverse set and that helps us as well.

The recipes included today are:

  • Kefir ginger ice cream
  • Kimchi pickle
  • Mushroom and kimchi omelette
  • Chicken tagine and preserved lemon
  • Preserved lemon
  • Apple cider vinaigrette
  • Creamy kefir dressing
  • Lemon chia muffins
  • Exotic tangy carrot cake
  • Red rice pudding
  • Coffee and walnut cake

How to make your own yoghurt.

Tomorrow how to help IBS.

The 2-Day Diet: Diet Two Days a Week – Eat Normally for Five What is in the book?

The 2-Day Diet: Diet Two Days a Week – Eat Normally for Five *
by Dr Michelle Harvie and Professor Tony Howell

What is in the book?

Dietician Dr Michelle Harvie and oncologist Professor Tony Howell together run Manchester University’s breast cancer prevention centre. Over 12 years of research tracking 1,000 slimmers and then from a study of 34,000 women they discovered a link between being overweight and an increase in cancer risk.

Losing weight and keeping it off is thought to help reduce your risk of breast cancer by 40%. On the new plan, 65% lost weight and kept it off.

  • To follow the plan spend two days consuming protein and vegetables, but no carbohydrates.
  • Then for the next five days follow a Mediterranean style diet.

I can recommend this book – it does have substantial content, not a glossy production – just plain black and white – no pictures. What the diet is, why it is thought to work, how to follow it, menu planners for both sets of days and recipes (one third of the book).

* Before adopting a new diet or change to your eating of any kind – speak with your doctor to ensure there is no risk to your health.

The contents include:

Introduction

  1. Why the 2-day diet  works
  2. Do I need to lose weight?
  3. How to do the two restricted days
  4. How to eat on the five unrestricted days
  5. Making the 2 day diet work
  6. How to be more active
  7. How to stay slim
  8. Meal planners
  9. Recipes for the two restricted days
  10. Recipes for unrestricted days
