Low Fat Week

Hi peeps!

Another week has dawned and its time for some low fat options. These last couple of weeks have dealt with more sweet options than not so I thought it was time we gave a chance to those of us who are trying to cut a bit of fat. This week on The Chef Mother we will be dealing with nothing but wholesome food; easy recipes to make and a couple of interesting health facts that we didn't know before. I will also be adding in the nutritional values of each meal so you can take note of that too.
