I usually do either a great big pile of fresh, stir-fried veg with a little chicken or steak sliced into it; or I do a vegetarian chilli, or a casserole of tomatoes, courgettes and beans (I use flageolet or cannelini beans), done with Moroccan spices. I like spicy food and basically I keep the meat portion to something about the size of my palm, and everything else is veg - because it's so low calorie I let myself use whatever sauce I like on the stir fry (in moderation).

It works for me!

Tesco does a great deal on stir-fry (veg, noodles and sauce for £2.50). It's delicious and healthy :)

I also use some of the WW recipes as I know they will be low in calories and saturated fat :)

A really good option is a baked potato, I usually have mine with tuna and sweetcorn. There are so many options though, chilli, baked beans etc. And if you're in a hurry and don't have time to bake it properly for 40 mins, pop it in the microwave for 6! (just remember to stab it with a fork a bit)

Another one I use frequently is pasta with some plain tomato sauce or passata :) The pasta helps fill me up and tomato sauce is fairly low in calories. You could even add some chicken to give you protein.

I had to have a quick tea tonight and popped and got one of M&S's FullerLonger meals.. I had beef stroganoff and it comes with rice, green beans and tenderstem broccoli. It was AMAZING and only 360/380 calories (sorry forgotten but think the latter) and there was loads of meat it in! I then had a raspberry jelly at 105 calories as a treat. I had it at 5.45pm and I'm still full and it's twenty to 10! Definitely worth looking at their range if you're in a hurry.
