810 meal ideas
Edit to add:
This thread was created originally for the 790 plan which has now ceased. There are still plenty of ideas for the meals on 810 or even possibly the SS+ meal in some cases.
These haven't been checked though, so please consult your book for quantities and allowed ingredients. Thanks.....KD

we'll I just can't get back onto SS and so I've decided that between now and New Year I'm going to do 790 with the occasional blip for Xmas dinner etc. Anyone gone any meal suggestions rather than just plain chicken or cottage cheese to make it more exciting?
Yep I used to cut up a chicken breast and then put it on kebab sticks with mushrooms and courgettes and then a little cajun spice to give it a kick.
Grill 4 minutes each side and then 1 minute in the microwave just to make sure it was safe and then tuck in.
yum sounds good. shame we can't have red onion!
I used to sprinkle the bouillon powder over chicken pieces before grilling for extra flavour. And because I used fromage frais instead of milk I sometimes mixed that with spices to make a tandoori style coating.
Can we make this a sticky since it comes up so much?
I have used mushroom, chicken & mushroom, veg and spicy oriental soups as sauces over chicken, fish or broccoli/cauliflower. And obviously the new soup will be perfect for all of the above as well. Just make up with less water and pour over cooked food.
I make crisps out of half a pack of soup then use the rest as a sauce over the chicken. Makes the plate look a bit fuller :D
What sort of veg do most people have with their AAM? I've seen the list of green and white veg (spring greens, cauliflower, lettuce, mushrooms, cabbage, marrow, broccoli, celery, cress, courgettes or cucumber.) Is there any other veg people tend to eat?
Can we have asparagus? (think i read on here that someone has is). What would that come under? What is included in spring greens?
veg on the list for aam week is:
green salad leaves: roquette, lambs lettuce, watercress, raddiccio, little gem/romaine lettuces
celery, cucumber or red radishes
courgettes or marrow
broccoli, cauliflower or any cabbage even pickled!
spinach, kale, turnip or taro tops, asparagus, fennel and celeriac
chinese leafy greens such as pak choi or chinese cabbage
Beverly: what is the soup like used as a sauce? is it not too powdery tasting? sounds good (i need to water down the soups quite a bit as dont like the powdery taste!)
I'm thinking of starting 790 myself as can't seem to get back into ssing... so watching this thread too!!
Can someone tell me what the amounts are or is it the same as AAM?
Hi there I am new on here and after trying and struggling with SS for 1 week (but still losing 3lbs yay!) I decided to give 790 a try so this is my first week and so far very good!
I have got between 7 and 9 stone to lose depending on how I feel when I get 7 stone off.
Does anyone know if we can add fresh garlic to our food as I wanted to do Garlic mushrooms with chicken.
Also in the CD booklet it say we have to cook in the oven, steam or boil the chicken or fish but do you know if I can dry fry? I would like to cook in my griddle pan but not sure if I can??
What kind of weight losses have people had on 790?
Hi...I've been doing 790 for the last 7 weeks. You're going to love it!! My losses seem to be averaging 3lbs a week. Hubby is doing tis too and his losses are 4lbs a week.
I actually don't know the answer to garlic but I do it!! I use the George Foreman a lot and also dry fry. We often have a stir fry with chicken and allowed veg in the wok. I just use any herbs and spices that I fancy.
Those weight losses are excellent tiara I would be more than happy with that :-) can you tell a big difference in your body? My clothes are loosening off already which is making me feel great (I was busting out of EVERYTHING) in my wardrobe.
A stir fry is a good idea as it seems like a normal meal! Can you add soy sauce??
I've gone down at least one size maybe 2 in clothes. I'm wearing things that wouldn't look near me before so yes I see a bit difference. I have to say though others haven't started to notice yet but I have a lot to lose so maybe not noticible to others yet!
I add a light soy sauce to mine but again I use a bit of guess work. I'm not sure it it's 'officially' allowed. I think it's common sense calorie wise and I suppose trial an error sometimes about how easily you could be knocked out of ketosis with other things. I think as time has gone on I'm not quite as strict as I was. I keep the chicken portion under the amount allowed. I allow myself plenty of alllowed veg though and I use whichever spices I fancy. I also have a low fat dressing on my salads and a small sprinkle of bacon soya chips. I don't ever have anything not on the list other than those things though. You have to have SOME rules. I'm not saying I do this 100% to the book but I have found a way that this works for me and I don't feel deprived.
Have you a lot to lose?
