Here's a great recipe for weight management, provided by Dean Geddes Nutrition.

You eat for what you’re about to do (unless it’s a recovery meal from exercise). So if you haven’t exercised after work then your body doesn’t need the energy yielding carbs at dinner such as rice, potato & kumara - so avoid those carbs.

Here’s a low-carb dish to go with steak or chicken, as an alternative to having high carbs.
This also creates a carb energy reduction that so you can have a wine or beer that evening.


Warm red cabbage, goat cheese and walnut salad

Serves 4

100g soft goat's cheese
2 tbsp chives, finely chopped
2 tbsp walnut oil
1 tbsp red onion, very finely sliced
1bpsp olive oil
200g red cabbage, finely sliced
1 Granny Smith apple, quartered and finely sliced
40g walnuts, toasted then chopped
1 tbsp walnut oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 Crumble the cheese into a bowl. Add the chives, walnut oil and red onion.

2 Heat the olive oil in a pan then when hot, add the cabbage, apples and walnuts. Stir for 5 minutes then reduce the heat and add the walnut oil, balsamic and seasoning.
