    Is there such a thing! lol!

    I've been eating 100g of Asda Beef Ravioli (bit higher in fat then I'd have liked but the xenical sorts that out) with 175g of Weight Watchers mozzarella & rocket pasta sauce before going to the gym. All in all comes to about 280 cals which isn't too bad, but also isn't very filling.
    This is my lunchtime meal and so I absolutely need the carbs before hitting the gym and I suppose I need another meal containing meat (as I only have one other throughout the day).

    Does anybody have any ideas, or am I just kidding myself thinking I can get all that into 300 cals?

    There's a few ready meals that have less than 300 cals. Or if ready meals don't take your fancy maybe a small jacket potato with chicken salad?
    Or if you use Danish bread (about 60 cals a slice) you could have a sandwich with meat in and bulk it out with veg.

    i had for lunch yesterday 100g of stirfry, tablespoon of sweet sour stirfry sauce and 30g philly for 99cals you could add a chicken breast to this for 153 cals (150g adverage fillet) and still have room for 56g of grapes for 34cals or similar maybe a banana for the potassium? this would bring you under the 300. it is a small portion but it did me yesterday without the chicken (had this with rice in the eve instead but it comes to more than 300 cas then)

    turkey bacon and cheese omlette

    Ingredients


    296 calories
    • 3 eggs
      non fat milk
      small bunch of cilantro, chopped
      Garlic powder & pepper if desired
      1 Tablespoon of Olive oil

      2 slices of turkey bacon
      ½ medium white onion, chopped fine
      1 medium tomato, chop half, slice half for garnish
      low fat white cheddar, grated


    Directions

    Chop turkey bacon into small pieces, sautee until about "half done"
    Add chopped onion and continue to sautee until onions are brown, turn off heat and stir in chopped tomato, let sit.

    Beat eggs and skim milk in a small bowl; add chopped cilantro (and garlic powder and pepper if desired)
    Heat olive oil in skillet over medium heat for about 2 minutes; Pour egg mixture into a medium skillet.
    Once egg mixture is almost firm, add sautee mixture to the centre of the omelet, add the cheese and fold the edges over the centre. Garnish with additional cilantro and sliced tomato

    This makes enough for 2 relatively small portions; of course it is very easy to increase!
