:) Hi Everyone!! My name's Mel, i've just started on 1200 cals a day and wondered if anyones got any yummy low cal recipes that they'd like to share?

I'm a sucker for lovely indulgent food (well obviously or i wouldnt be here! lol) looking for food that seems a little bit naughty but isn't (to try and fool my chubby lil brain so i don't feel too deprived!) i've got nearly 70lbs to lose so i've probably got a least another 6 months of this and don't want to get bored of eating the same old things and give up!!
:) :) :)

tuna pasta bake, very very yummy!!

boil 75grams of wholegrain pasta until soft, whilst this is cooking gently dry fry your tuna and onion and add in a spoonful of garlic salt (or 1clove of garlic crushed). Do this for 2minutes and then add a tin of chopped tomatoes and mix thoroughly. Add some pepper and one tea spoon of oregano. simmer for 10minutes.

when pasta and tuna mix are ready, put both into 1 oven proof dish and mix together. Add some grated (lowfat) cheese and bake for approx 20-30mins.

i threw these ingrediants together the other day and ended up with a very yummy dinner.

Yes it does go soft and it's quite cheesy and delicious! They meanthose little chilli peppers (which I don't use anymore, as just the cumin itself gives a lovely flavour) but if you like abit more spice to it, then you can chop up the chillies!

The whole thing is just gorgeous with a bit of lettuce, sliced tomato and sweetcorn on the plate too!

That looks lush! But that would never split into 12 portions in our house!! (And there's only the 2 of us :eek: ) So 1/12th of that is 6 points, am I right in thinking 1 point=roughly 65 cals?

I used a lot of the WW recipes when I was doing it. There is a fab recipe on there somewhere for a burger, and also a few for kebabs and protein feasts! I'll have to look through my low fat recipe folder and see if I can find them online. If not, maybe I'll type them up :cool:

Sorry, hi Mel and welcome to the gang:553:

Just found the perfect little biscuit snack for peckish moments.

Morrisons Honey Teddy Bear biscuits. They are tiny little biscuits the size of a thimble lol. A 25g pack is 110 cals 2.9g fat. I originally got them for my son, but they are crunchy and a nice little inbetween snack. They were more satisfying than a bag of crisps, which in my opinion seem to get smaller and smaller with the amount of crisps inside a bag.

Cheats low cal curry.

Iceland frozen cooked chicken pieces - 200g/200 calorie
Co-Op Rogan Josh Healthy Eating Jar sauce - 220 cals per jar
1 x tin chopped tinned tomatoes
1 x tin Morrisons Spicy lentil and tomato soup - 252 cals per tin
Mushrooms
Onions

Dry fry onions with a little garlic, add chicken, mushrooms and a little chilli/curry powder for extra spice. Then chuck in a pan with tomatoes, soup and curry sauce. Heat through and serve with 50g rice per person - approx 175 cals

Easily 6 servings with this curry. Great to freeze in portions for lunches/dinners throughout the week.
