Recipes anyone? chip in!

ok, so we have all been told what we CAN'T eat but I haven't read much about what we CAN eat. So I thought maybe it would be a good idea to share recipes? That way we can help each other out, and god knows we need the help because following this diet is no fun! it was my mates bday the other day and she got a massive chocolate cake - everyone tucked in and they all had such gorgeous skin. Sigh.

I got a few recipes you guys may want to try (I got them from an acne website,and i THINK they contain the right foods, although I may be wrong!)

vegetable stir fry
Small broccoli 1 red pepper 5oz/120g mangetout 1 carrot 100g/4oz beansprouts (preferably home made) Bunch spring onions 1g/small handful seaweed, such as Arame 1 tbsp sesame seeds 1 tbsp vegetable oil 1 tsp sesame oil 2 tbsp tamari 1 tbsp honey 3 tbsp veg stock

Directions: Soak the seaweed for 10 minutes. Peel and chop the carrot into thin slices, chop the broccoli into small pieces. Trim the mangetout and thinly slice the pepper. Slice the spring onions into inch long lengths. Heat the vegetable oil in a wok or frying pan. Add the carrots and broccoli and stir fry for 2-3 minutes. Add the mangetout and pepper and cook for 2 minutes. Add the spring onion and cook for a further minute. Mix together the sesame oil, tamari, honey and stock and pour into the pan. If necessary cut the seaweed into smaller pieces, and add to the pan together with the beansprouts. Cover and cook for 2 minutes. Serve and sprinkle the sesame seeds on top. Serves 2 people.

rocket & pinenut salad
4oz/100g rocket 2oz/50g raw pinenuts 1 tbsp olive oil Juice and rind of a lemon 1 clove garlic, crushed

green herby salad

Juice of a lime
