I’ve made a few bits and pieces the last few days but haven’t had much time to blog.
Here’s a selection of foods I’ve whipped up in a hurry.
This parfait was fun to make with my son & gave me the much needed protein after a mini workout. I’ve been trying to walk daily for about 45 minutes and run small sections of my route.
I used zero fat Chobani Greek yoghurt with blueberries, raspberries, linseed, sunflower & almond mix (lsa) and bee pollen.
All these were just layered in a small glass.
A favourite with my son is Chow Mein.
I made a low fat version of this using Slim Rice ( I had no noodles left in the cupboard!) & it came out filling & yummy!
Again this was a throw together meal.
Wee Man enjoyed cutting up the cabbage & we grated the carrot. I used a lean beef mince for this dish too.
My Low Fat Chow Mein came in at about 150 calories a serve.
I used a McCain recipe base, grated carrot, sliced cabbage, diced onion & lean beef. Once all the meat is cooked & the veggies soft I threw in the warmed slim rice. YUM!
This is my absolute favourite.
I wanted a quick but tasty warm breakfast. This would be suitable as a snack too. Modify it to your taste.
You will need:
3 egg whites & 1 whole egg & a handful of grated cheese.
Whisk the eggs & microwave for one and a half minutes. Sprinkle in the cheese, saving a little for serving, microwave for a further minute and then serve. Sprinkle on the cheese and ENJOY!
This sets you back about 150 calories.
3% carbs, 60% protein & 37% fat.
Love me a pizza!!
This pizza was completely vegan.
I used a vegan pita bread, Cheezly motzerella cheese, spinach, chargrilled vegetables ( zucchini, eggplant, capsicum, olives) & some Tofutti cream cheese instead of a tomato paste base.
The pizza cooked in about 10 minutes on about 180 degrees.
A lovely light meal at about 300 calories.
