A LITTLE EFFORT
Syns per serving 3½
Ready in 45 minutes, plus cooling
4 large egg whites
145g caster sugar
250g fat-free natural Greek yogurt
100g fresh blueberries, reserving some to decorate
3 nectarines, stoned and finely sliced, reserving some slices to decorate
1 Preheat your oven to 180°C/fan 160°C/gas 4. Line a 24 x 30cm, non-stick Swiss roll tin with baking paper.
2 In a large, clean glass bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric hand whisk on a medium speed until they form stiff peaks. Increase the speed to high and add the sugar a tablespoon at a time, whisking for a few seconds between each addition, until smooth and glossy.
3 Dollop into the prepared tin, spread the mixture out evenly and bake for 15-20 minutes until pale, golden and crisp on top. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the tin.
4 Mix the yogurt with the blueberries. Gently turn the meringue out onto a board and carefully peel off the baking paper. Spread over the yogurt and berry mixture, scatter over most of the nectarine slices, then roll up from the short side. Transfer to a serving dish and decorate with the reserved blueberries and nectarine slices. Divide into 8 slices and serve.
The roulade can be made up to 12 hours in advance. Keep it in the fridge wrapped in baking paper until ready to serve.

There is a huge list of Free Food to choose from, which doesn’t need to be weighed, calorie counted or measured.
You can also snack on these to satisfy your hunger in between meals.
In addition, you are encouraged to eat measured quantities of certain foods, known as ‘Healthy Extras’ that provide nutrients essential for a healthy, balanced diet.
These include milk and cheese (for calcium) and cereals and wholemeal bread (for fibre and minerals).
And so you never feel deprived you can enjoy limited amounts of treats which are higher-calorie, less filling foods that include chocolate, crisps and alcohol.
