Steamed haddock and rice sounds just right Nadine.....followed by another nap.  Don't worry about the research, my dear, you've done so much for me already big_hug.  I'm going to make the truffles tomorrow.....shame we don't live closer, I'd bring some over for you!  (Although perhaps might be a little too rich for a poorly stomach! ponder)

Could not face any food yesterday & I feel much the same today. I know I should eat something but I just don't want to vomit it up. 

However I am feeling stronger & can walk around without feeling dizzy so I have been sitting quietly doing a bit of research on Quinoa, a gluten-free grain I have never eaten so far.

There are a lot of recipes for using it on the BBC's Good Food site, many of which can be adjusted for Sue's diet

 I intend to get some next week as it sounds very good for us. Has anyone else used it in a gluten-free or diabetic diet ?

All I've ever done is cook it up in some stock  or throw it in a casserole. I use it as protein.

wave  It is nice as part of a salad, adding herbs or spices  or salad veg etc.  Sort of the same things you would do with cous cous.  I like it and yes, it is supposed to be very healthy so I have heard.

I've never liked the look of it, makes me think of eating sand...

I'll try that again!

Never tried it, seen it in a couple of supermarkets.  Is it like couscous, not much taste of its own but soaks up other tastes?  Or does it have a flavour?

I always think it needs extra flavouring.

Exactly, TA.  I'm quite fussy about food, if I don't like the look of something then that puts me off of even trying it.  Shellfish for example.....I love fish, but things like cockles, whelks, mussels or - horror of horrors - eels....yuck!  Not that I've ever tried any of that, it's just the thought and look of it that puts me right off.  I do like prawns and crab, but if I get even the tiniest bit of shell in crab then that's me not eating it for about a year flaming_norabig_laugh

I know what you mean Sue.  I love pork but won't eat pork belly because of all the fat, I can't eat fat without throwing up.  I eat all seafood available here except whelks and winkles as they are too chewy.  Love mussels haven't tried raw oysters but have had them cooked, canned, pickled etc.  That quinoa still looks like sand to me.

I'll try that again!
