The Clever Guts recipe book

The Clever Guts recipe book

My eldest daughter very kindly bought me the Clever Guts Recipe Diet book and I was absolutely thrilled as I have read the Clever Guts Diet book by Dr Mosley and I really enjoyed the book so much so I am going to read the book again. I have now made the Paneer Curry out of the book and it was really nice and not too hot.

I am also pleased to say that my eating habits are changing quite a bit and I made a homemade vanilla sponge for my hubby today and wasn't the slight bit interested in 'licking' the bowl out like I used to do, that is definitely a step in the right direction.

The paneer curry looks great! How long did it take to cook along with the vanilla sponge cake?

Hi Activity2004 , in the recipe book it says that the curry took some effort to prepare and cook but I found it quite simple to follow and didn't think it took that long, I also made the cauliflower rice as suggested in the book. I can't remember at the top of my head how long it took but I did find it very easy to follow and the ingredients were listed in order of use which was handy. Once I had cooked the vegetables I transferred it to my slow cooker to keep it hot.

The book also gives the calorie counts for the food but I no longer calorie count, I just try and eat healthily. My one vice in life is Mocha which I absolutely love but I am thinking of ways to improve that.

The vanilla sponge cake is a recipe I have used for quite a long time and it's a AllrecipesUK recipe and it's the best vanilla sponge I have ever made, I made my granddaughter's rainbow cake using the recipe and I have been told it tasted really good.

HI Alicia,

I have also read this book, it's really good - I got my copy from the library, and really enjoyed it. Some lovely recipes in it as well. Your Paneer Curry looks fantastic.

Hi Zest

It's an amazing book and to also learn about how our system work is quite amazing, I am going to read it again. I was so pleased to get the recipe book and am working my way through that one and going to try a few recipes.

This looks really good! I have the recipe book myself, we tried a couple of dishes (the beetroot burgers are really nice), but I need to dig it out again :)

Thank you. I love the sound of the beetroot burgers, my next go to recipe I feel. :)

They were great, although it took longer to cook than I expected! I would grate the beetroot rather than chop it, it will cook a lot faster!

Sorry to take so long to get back, I haven't been on the computer as I've been out and about. Thank you so much for the tip, it's really helpful. I can understand what you are saying as when I made the Paneer Curry from the book the ginger was still in chunks and had a bite to it so I was glad I actually like ginger. ;)

I grate ginger too - you can go on the broad or fine grating sides. Much quicker too!

Thank you Cooper and that is what I am planning to do next time, it's a fabulous cookbook though and shows you can still enjoy lovely food and it's healthy and better for our guts.
