This is a fantastic book! It has many helpful suggestions including ways to make the IF lifestyle suit your lifestyle ( there is even an IF guide for the retired couple), some great quick no fuss recipes and a yummy chocolate bark recipe which I will share with you later.

Four-ingredient toppings for baked salmon
“One of my favourite quick meals for our family when I’m in a bit of a rush and have defrosted or (am lucky to have) some fresh salmon fillets is one of my go-to four-ingredient salmon toppings. It takes less than a couple of minutes to throw the ingredients into a small bowl, drizzle over the top of the salmon fillets and on they go into a hot oven until golden. p. 136”
1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with
baking paper and arrange the salmon fillets on the
tray, leaving space between them.
2. Choose a flavour topping and mix all of the
ingredients in a small bowl.
3. Drizzle or spoon the flavour topping evenly on top of
each salmon fillet. Some toppings will be thick and
sit on top of the salmon, others will be runny and
will pool around the base of the salmon fillet. Both
types will be delicious.
4. Bake in the oven for 20–25 minutes for medium,
or longer if you like your salmon well done.

I keep hearing about IF, Carol. I don’t do it myself, but I hear that the people who do are glad of it. That salmon recipe looks great whether one’s fasting or not! I like the different variety of toppings, too.
I agree Margot – great ideas whether or not IF
