Nope don't need it at all. Crank the music and do some dancing or go for a walk. Even better a hard class at the gym. :D

How did you go?

(found these for you jewles- theyre not my recipes!)

Sir Winston’s Pub, Vernon BC is where I first tried this pasta. It was excellent. From memory I tried to duplicate the recipe. I tried it for the first time last week. Others who have had Sir Winston’s pasta agree this is a close copy.

2 boneless skinless chicken breast
curry powder (yellow curry - or garam masala)
1 can coconut milk
red pepper
mandarin orange slices
cooked pasta (ie. penne, is great)

So this is basically how I did it…

Cut up chicken into small bitesized cubes. Put in a large skillet. Saute a few minutes then add sprinkling of curry. Don’t over do it because you just want to season the chicken a bit or the flavor will be too intense. There is more curry added later. Cook til chicken is no longer pink. Gradually add coconut milk. Stirring to mix in the curry. Add in smaller batches so that it can heat and start to thicken on its own. Once all the coconut milk is added, add thinly sliced red pepper. Cook on a low-med simmer until sauce is thicker and the red peper strips are softened slightly. Taste sauce, add curry as desired and s&p. Add mandarin orange slices, toss gently. Toss with cooked pasta. YUM.


Coconut Curry Recipe

1 Tbs. virgin coconut oil
1 can of coconut milk* (1 1/2 or 2 cans if you like curry with more sauce)
1 tsp. chopped garlic
2 pinches of sea salt, or to taste
4 large potatoes, peeled and chopped
1/2 head large cauliflower, chopped
2 cups zucchini, chopped
2 Tbs. curry powder
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp. ground ginger


In a bowl, stir together the curry powder, cumin, nutmeg, and ginger.

Steam potatoes for 20 minutes, adding cauliflower for the last 5 minutes. Heat coconut oil in a large saucepan. Add garlic and zucchini. Cook until zucchini softens a bit. Add the steamed potatoes and cauliflower to the saucepan. Add coconut milk. Stir in the spices and salt. Continue stirring until spices are incorporated. Serve by itself or over brown rice or quinoa.

Serves five.

*Most grocery stores now carry canned coconut milk that contains 0.003% or zero preservatives. If you cannot find a good source at your local supermarket, try visiting a Chinese grocery store.

Good on you Jewels for not giving into temptation!!! You will feel so much better to know that you did a work out instead of eating fried greasy fat-ladened fish and chips. You should hold your head up and be proud mate!!

If our family wants fish and chips nowadays (which isn't very often, we had it the other night for the first time in 3 months), I get a grilled fish and salad. Very yummy, with out the added fat and cals!! I don't know if your fish shop has this option, though. I know I get tired of cooking for 6 every night sometimes (especially TTOTM) and it is nice to line up healthier take away option just in case!! :wink:

Well done Jewles for resisting the temptation :D Grilled fish with salad is a great option.. that's what I do when I'm visiting my parents and they're having fish and chips for dinner. And the last line of defence... supplementation lol. It is cheating, and I'm not sure if it works, but Thompson's Fat Blocker cannot be undervalued :lol: :roll:

I am not sure how it rates calorie or fat wise, but I notice that Carnation Light milk now has its own Carnation Light Coconut milk..might be worth a look into..it is in the powdered and uht milk aisle :wink:

Instead of my fish and chips i went to the shops today and got some meditteranean fish fillet things, which is just fish with a salsa type thing, only 7 grams of fat and they have the heart tick, and i think ill have it with a baked potato with a drop of light sour cream. Healthier and just as yum :P
