Dinner Recipe

new recipe i tried for dinner and it was yum:-
steam and mash 1 small sweet potato (yam)
mix in 1 tab of fat free plain yoghurt, 1/2 cup of fat free cottage cheese, 1/2 cup skim milk, 1 tsp dijon mustard, onion powder, pepper and mix well to get a creamy orange sauce.

saute onion, chopped carrots, chopped zuc and a few button mushrooms (as much or as little) in olive oil (optional) til soft.  add 2 cups cooked brown rice.  add this mix to the orange sauce.  add 200g drained tuna and mix well.

transfer into a baking dish and bake for 20 mins on medium.  serves 4.  original nutrients per serve were excellent but i tweaked the original recipe to make it lower in fat and more in veg so not sure exact numbers.  Its a good base - you could add herbs, curry, different veg, less rice, chicken instead of tuna etc.

This fits in with jamie's serve of protein, complex carb and veg meal.  I hope someone tries it - let me know what you think (even my 12 yo daughter loved it !!)



  1. Sounds very nice Amanda, I will give it a go :)

    Gotta get my act together and get back to being my fit and healthy self...I am always looking for yummy healthy recipes so thanks for sharing yours :)

  2. Aloha Amanda, I lived in New South Whales as a child.. Beautiful place! I am 46 and can relate to where you are at.. I am a widow and have been for over 10 years now raising two children alone, well our last child now as my son is 16 and my daughter is now 23. Life has been hard doing it alone and staying true to my dreams of always being fit. It's nice to have others out there to communicate with and see how they do it. No matter how good we are or get at what we do in our fit life's we can always learn more.. That's the fun thing about these fitness blogs. Plus it keeps us learning new tricks to show our bodies, and keep them from adapting and we can keep them gaining and learn new ways to torture our I love it! Love the green blog site =) I am only in to my blog since August, having fun learning and see what others do. Keep in touch & I will follow =)
