Soy Sauce & Sesame Oil dressed Kale Salad - Time (20mins) Skill (easy) Eating (medium)

I've got a new carer, a lovely guy called Gary. Who likes to cook. Hurrah! So we did a Japanese/ Oriental feast. This is a leafy greens salad that was part of the feast....

You can make it fresh at the time, or use already cooked leafy green leftovers the next day by adding the marinade dressing.

Recipe - Quesadillas (fried, filled tortilla/ flat bread) Time (20mins) Skill (easy) Eating (medium)

I like pizza. But it's quite hard to eat, in that it needs a bit of chewing and my fingers get messy.  I have found Quesadillas are a good alternative, easier to eat and can be very quick to prepare.

This Quesadilla was made with 2 plain chappattis, and a filling of chopped onion, red pepper and sweetcorn with a bit of garlic paste.

Recipe Quick Cook - Coconut & Vanilla Yoghurt

Sometimes I just want something quick and easy that's fairly neutral tasting, that doesn't need much chewing but has a bit of body to it. Which is harder to achieve than you'd think!

Years ago I bought a couple of books on Candida Albicans. And promptly ignored them. Since I've been this ill, I've been looking through my books to see what's in there that's easy to make and easy to eat and tasty.  And I was a bit doubtful about this one, which is from Erica White's Beat Candida Cookbook, but actually it's rather nice and you don't miss the fact that it doesn't have sugar in it. It's also quite filling.

This pic was from pinterest, it probably takes you to a site where coconut & milk is involved. I have no idea, I just wanted a pretty picture of yoghurt!
