Ok, been to GP this morning and my new diet cannot contain -

Wine sad
No spice
Tomatoes confused
Low carb
Low fat (as in very low fat)

I currently have no oven has it broke and I can't afford to replace just now blush The hob and grill work, and I do have a slow cooker.

I can only think of chicken and salad vs chicken and veg, but then I've never been the greatest cook.

Just myself and 2 DDs smile

Grilled fish
Chicken casserole

Did the GP not offer you a diet sheet?

Vegetable casserole, Nige makes a very nice on in Hotpots on BBC iPlayer ATM, could easily be done in slow cooker I would think.

Bad news about cheese and wine ~ poor you!

Thanks Allalone, nope - no diet sheet, just an appointment with the nurse when I presume I'll get some more info, but that's not for two weeks.

I didn't think of fish thanks smile

Quinoa is a protein and not a carb, but can be used as a replacement for carbs.Some lovely recipes which mix quinoa and lentils, which you could also put roasted peppers and carrots into, and for texture some toasted almonds. I quite often have this for lunch! Filling too.

Oh and don't forget that fish cooks well in the microwave!

This mini oven is almost half price at Argos, if it would be easier to afford for now until you can replace your oven.

Ooh, lots of lovely ideas thanks!

I didn't know I could do baked potatoes in the slow cooker - that may need trying, same with quinoa never heard of it

Many thanks guys, it's certainly going to be a challenge smile
