My wife is doing the Motivation weight management clinic thingy any questions ask here!
I LOVE THIS!
This is one of their recipes;
Makes 4 portions, 210 calories per portion
cook time 15mins
1 large onion
1 med green pepper
300g/11oz extra lean mince beef (raw weight)
400g can chopped tomatoes
10ml/2 level teaspoons chilli powder (I put more in)
30ml /2 level tavlespoons tomatoe puree
1 chop the onion, de-seed and dice the pepper
2 dry fry the mince drain and discard juices
3 add onion pepper to beefcook then add the remaining ingredients mix well and cook on low heat for 15 mins
have half a cup of cooked rice with each portion
Sounds delicious roy - and at only 210 calories per portion, can have it without any guilt at all! Have made a note of the recipe, thanks!
Have been 'eating less, exercising more' since early in 2007. Haven't got a final target in mind, but as they asked for one for my ticker, decided to go for 10st 5lb for starters, and then see what happens as I get closer to it!
Start: 19st 5lb Target:10st 5lb
Current: 10st 2lb
Thanks - will definately try this one!

My chilli con carne's have always come out of a Homepride jar but if it's this easy I will try it myself. Thanks for the recipe
Thanks Roy this is a really nice easy recipe, I will try it when I can eat again.

Diet: calorie counting
Sorry to sound anal, but is the rice included in the total calories? love the recipe but would like to add it to baked potatoes instead!
good point friendly face i imagine the rice is extra though sounds like a great frecipe to try
Oo nifty, I usually use sause out of a jar which is full of salt and stuff, I'd defo gona try this. It'd be amazing on jacket potato.
Nothing will change
unless you yourself make it .
The goals weren't working....I never was much of a sports fan I just want to reach a healthy weight and do it without driving myself crazy! Emz x
I prefer mine with a jacket potato because for the same amount of cals i can have a decent size spud as opposed to half a cup of rice.
I love kidney beans in mine but that pushes the cals up a bit. I dont put tinned toms in it either. I dont like my chilli too tomatoey.
100g mince, 1 onion, half cup chopped green pepper, chilli flakes, 1 oxo cube , 1 tbsp tom puree and a dash of water. 190 cals.
im sounding thick as i even think this never mind ask it but here goes,,,,,,,,,, so if i exactly double amounts to feed 8 it would be the same calories?
get back into size 18 16 14
get into 17s 16s 15s 14s 13s 12s 11s
No, if you double the amounts it will feed 2 people with the same amount of kcals each. You can multiply the amounts by 8 and then as long as you make 8 portions the kcals will be the same for each person.
