  1. are there any exercise books for people who have severe arthritis in the knees and can’t do squats or planks or even get down on there knees or the floor to do them. i’ve been searching and they pretty much are for people with normal knees. mine are shot and i need to loose wt. besides dieting food wise i need to get into shape. love your recipes… ones that are free . ones where i don’t have to buy a book.

  2. The Breakfast egg & veggie muffins is a great idea. I would swap the potato for other lower carb veggies as I am a diabetic & carbs are simply stores of fat if not exercising enough. Great range of recipes you provide. Many thanks.

  3. I’m glad we don’t have to use the potato because i much prefer more veggies but is there a reason why you have potato in it
