Hi, I would like to try to make some couscous with lemon and with mixed roast vegies. Does anyone know if there is fructose in couscous, or a brand which may be better. We tasted it at a barbeque that we attended, and it tasted lovely. I thought we may be able to have it for our main meal.
The other thing I use for a very similar salad is Quinoa(pronounced keenwa), it has more flavour than couscous. It has a slightly nutty flavour and is delicious used to make a tabouli with lots of lemon juice and parsley. Or you could put in the roast veges and make your own egg mayonnaise or ceasar dressing which is really simple and put a dollop of that on.
We are in to week 4 and for the first 3 weeks I managed to put on weight, I am pleased to report that I have just lost some, not much but its a start. My husband on the other hand has lost about 3 kg. Its great looking on the website and getting lots of ideas and support. Good luck
I googled Quinoa and found that it is a seed. It sounds nice and I might try some as filling with roast capsicum with some garlic vegies, nuts, and bit of feta and brown rice. These are the sort of foods that I love, but my husband is starting to feel he is eating too much birdseed, though he will eat it if he doesn't have to cook. We are both doing well with new food habits, and great ideas from everyone.
