I’m going to through this point in really early because it’s perfectly normal to overeat and drink over the Christmas and New Year. Whatever happens don’t think that you’ve messed everything up all you need to know is that you’ve you’ve got to jump back on the healthy wagon at some point. This some point can be tomorrow 2nd, 3rd or even mid January, probably best not to leave it until Summer but as long as you jump back on you’ll reach your goals.
FitFarms Weight loss retreat next year is looking very healthy! We’re re opening in Dorset which has always been a favourite with our guest mainly because of the fabulous swimming pool, accommodation and beautiful countryside.
We are also adding more variety to out exercise programme and we have a new nutritionist to run the workshops getting our guests up to date with the latest nutritional science and eliminating any myth and fads that may have been learnt.

Weight Loss Retreat Massaman Curry

massamanMassaman Thai curry is relatively mild but if you need a little more heat just add some more chilli.

You can buy a decent healthy Massaman paste from the supermarket but if you have more time making your own is always going to be better. When buying the paste make sure to check the ingredients making sure the herbs and spices come first and avoid chemicals and sugar or at the least make sure they’re very low down the ingredient list.

OK first lets make a traditional massaman curry paste.

1/4 cup dry roasted unsalted peanuts

2 shallots

5 garlic cloves peeled

2 re chillies add another 1 if you want to move up with the heat

1 inch of ginger

1 stalk of lemongrass

tsp coriander

tsp cumin

1/8 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/8 tsp ground cloves

1/4 tsp cardamon

2 tbsp fish sauce

1 tbsp shrimp paste

2tsp maple syrup

3 tbsp coconut milk

Now you’ve got all the ingredients together all you have to do is put into a blender and blend away to create a paste. If you want to turn it into  sauce add a tin of coconut milk. This is the typical southern Thai style way which has Indian influences in the spices.
