This is my THIRD attempt at an upload so I hope that this works and appears in your subscription boxes! I had to add the bloopers to the original for Youtube to recognise this as a different video, so apologies if they’re not actually that funny — I’ve just tagged them randomly on the end!
Please see below for «recipes» — this is supposed to be just a quick little guide to three ways we can eat a little more healthily. I try to eat very little in the way of processed food because most things are SO easy to make and quick too. So I thought I’d demonstrate with pasta sauce, salad dressing and frozen yoghurt! Hope this is helpful, and if not, fun! xx

RECIPE FOR SIMPLE TOMATO SAUCE:
3 Cloves of Garlic
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (about 1.5 tbsp)
Dried chilli or fresh, to taste. None if you prefer!
Two tins of chopped tomatoes
2 x 1/4 tins of water (swill out the tomato juice and bits!)
Salt and pepper
Fresh basil, if you have it. Not dried, it tastes odd.
Heat oil on a low/medium heat and add crushed garlic, do not let it burn! It only needs to cook for twenty seconds or so, longer if your heat is very low. Add chilli if using and stir.
Add chopped tomatoes and the water that you swill the cans out with. (Only about one quarter of the tin volume, max.)
Simmer for as long as you have time to! An hour is good, half an hour is OK; make a load in advance. It freezes REALLY well!
Serve with pasta, chicken, lamb, fish, whatever you like. Also makes good pizza topping!
RECIPE FOR LOW-FAT PEACH FROZEN YOGHURT — from Cuisinart Ice Cream Pro cookbook
350g canned peach slices
675g low fat yoghurt
75g Granulated Sugar
Drain peaches and reserve 100ml juice
Blend peaches until smooth
Add yoghurt, sugar, juice and blend again until smooth. Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours then churn in your machine!
The best extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar that you can find, a little garlic and salt and pepper to taste. Use about 2/3 oil to 1/3 vinegar, but keep experimenting until you like the taste. Shake it up in a jam jar and remove the garlic before pouring the dressing!
