    hello all!

    I'm starting to think that i'm eating the same foods most of the time, i dont want my weighloss to slow down, so i'm asking please can you help me out by either writing down what you would eat on a daily basis or any food suggestions for me as i'm getting bored of the same old foods. This would make me a happy bunny,

    Hey,Ive found that I am eating pretty much the same foods all the time and Im still losing weight just fine :)
    Anyway here is the sort of stuff I eat.....
    Breakfast-Bran flakes or weetabix and a banana. Or 2 slices toast with marmite and a piece of fruit.

    Lunch-Pitta bread or bread rolls with laughing cow cheese triangles and cherry tomatoes.
    Or a jacket potato with cottage cheese and salad.
    Plus a yogurt or a piece of fruit.

    Dinner-Quorn spag bol. Quorn cottage pie. Plain quorn and veg. New potatoes,quorn and veg! I am a vegetarian so eat quorn stuff but it's also very low in fat and cals and you can make al sorts of meals with it.

    Snacks-Muller rice. Weight watcher desserts. Fruit. Carrot sticks. Ryvita minis. Not all in the same day obv lol

    Thanks for your lovely post Blue butterfly, i only eat fish ( no other meat stuff) so quorn sounds delish, i love your menu lol and i will be trying marmite on my toast, its so nice to have something different, but as you said youve been eating the same things and still have a good loss so i guess i dont have anything to worry about. ps cant wait, im going to try all the things youve suggested, it seems so much nicer reading it all written down.

    I don't know if my daily foods would be any use.

    I've good control over my brekkie & lunch but my parents make dinner.

    Which in fairness, is normally okay, and even when it's things like sausages they're from a (awarding winning) butcher and not supermarket stuff.

    It's those Frijj milkshakes that are low fat,Im not sure if it's all the flavours coz I haven't looked at them all but they are yummy :)

    I thought of some more food ideas!
    I had a quorn sausage sandwich for breakfast the other morning,that was lovely. On wholemeal bread with a tiny bit of tomato sauce.

    Also you know those sausage casserole packet mixes you get? Well you can make a sausage casserole using quorn sausages. I tried a paprika and bell pepper packet mix and that was nice.

    And if you shop at tesco try this..get the sweet chilli stirfry sauce. Mix it with some quorn pieces in a saucepan til the quorn is cooked. Then serve with rice and peas or any other veg you like.

    You can also do the same as above but with a jar of curry sace,just make sure it's less that 5% fat obv!

    Also you can do 'pizza and chips' Or a version of it anyway!
    Get a wholemeal pitta (or 2 if you're real hungry) Dont cut it open just do this on top of the pitta. Spread with tomato puree and then a cheese triangle or 2 on top. Put veg on it (I have mushrooms,peppers and sweetcorn) then grill it a little.
    For the chips,cut up a potato into chip shapes! But them in a bowl,spray with frylight,sprinkle salt and pepper or any mixed herbs you like on them and then put them in the oven. And voila....pizza and chips!

    Ok Im gonna stop there coz I'm making myself hungry lol

    Lol, thanks for all those ideas,seems as if youve been experimenting alot, trust me reading them made me feel hungry too! i bought some quorn sausages the other day so will be trying the quorn sandwich! the alternative to pizza will definately be tried and tested by me aswell lol, and now i no i can actually get low fat milkshake thats within the 5g rules im the happiest girl alive. ps i love paprika so those will come in handy. i've got weigh in at sliiming world tomorrow and i'm so nervous, had a sneak peak this morning and it said i stayed the same even though i was eating light salads and soups for most of the week, or maybe its a daily fluctuation thing.

    hows your day so far?

    I'm a keen cook, but I don't always have the time/inclination to do anything much when I get in from work, so I batch cook, in large quantities every 2-3 weekends and fill the freezer up. I have some wonderful little (cheap) recipe books from BBC Good Food which have the fat and calorie content of all of the recipes, and I know I'm not eating processed rubbish.

    I tend to do lots of soups for lunches, but have branched out a bit as I got bored with that, managing to make fat-free falafel (only problem is they fall apart somewhat when frozen) and a tuna/tomato/potato bake which microwaves up well at work too. Current favourite is a roasted tomato soup which has tons of other veg too and so goes a long way to your 5 a day. I'm going to post the recipe below, since it's quick and easy.

    Breakfasts, I'm very boring, either cereal or porridge. I have made a good find though - I don't like fully skimmed milk, it just tastes like coloured water to me, but Sainsburys are doing a 1% fat milk that tastes better than skimmed but is lower fat than semi-skimmed (not that semi-skimmed is high in fat, but every little helps [that's Tesco not Sainsbury's isn't it???]). I have a bacon sarnie on Saturdays, I just cut all the fat off that I can before I grill it, and HP Sauce have started to do a reduced sugar version so can have that too without feeling like it's bad.

    Dinners are currently (thinking about what is in my freezer), Chilli Prawn Noodles (228 cal/8g fat per portion), Pork with Celeriac and Orange (251 cal/10g fat [+needs rice or veg]), Tomato, olive and anchovy spaghetti (377 cal/8g fat), Tuna and tomato rice (346 cal/6g fat), Seafood pasta (424 calories/8g fat), Fragrant chicken curry (227 cal/4g fat [+rice]), New potato and mince curry (353 calories/11g fat), Summer chilli (390 cal/13g fat). In a month's time those dinners would all be completely different, though, I do love to try new dishes, and have really found my passion for cooking coming back because I know I can do it without huge amounts of calories or fat.

    Roasted tomato soup

    Takes 50 minutes [only 10-15 minutes of which are preparation time]. Serves 4.

    2 large onions, cut into wedges
    2 tbsp olive oil
    3-4 garlic cloves, peeled (but left whole)
    900g/2lb tomatoes, cut into wedges
    large red pepper
    4 carrots, peeled and cut into 1cm slices
    600ml/1 pint veg stock
    crusty bread to serve.

    1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees (gas mark 6). Toss the onion, garlic, tomatoes, pepper and carrots in a large roasting tin, seaons well with salt and pepper. Roast for 40 minutes until "charred" but not blackened [may need an extra few minutes depending on your oven].

    [I find I need two roasting tins - I also find the best way to coat the veg properly is to put everything in a big freezer bag, add the oil and salt and pepper and give them a really good shake up. Coats them well, using very little oil].

    2. Transfer the vegetables to a large saucepan and pour the stock into the roasting tin, scraping the bottom of the tin to release the charred vegetable juices. Pour into the pan with the vegetables and use a hand blender to process until smooth (or put everything into a blender or liquidiser in 2 batches).

    3. Gently heat the soup until it is just simmering. Adjust the seasoning and serve with toasted crusty bread.

    Per serving: 155 calories, 4g protein, 21g carbs, 7g fat (1g saturated fat), 6g fibre.

    Truly fabulous taste! Add just a bit less liquid and you also have a delicious pasta sauce.

    Have a look out for the BBC Good Foods 101 Low-Fat Feasts, that's where that recipe came from (slightly adapted, because I fiddle with recipes) if you like cooking. The book is great, gives all of that breakdown of nutrients for all of those recipes. The other books in that series are great too and give those breakdowns (One-pot meals is my current favourite), even if they aren't specifically low-fat recipes a lot have less than 15g of fat per serving and less than 500 calories per portion.

    Not sure how helpful my meals are if you only eat fish, but maybe you might get some more ideas if nothing else.

    Breakfast:
    Weekdays - coco pops & semi skimmed milk - gets rid of my chocolate cravings :D
    Weekends - 2 poached eggs on 2 bits of toast, spread with extra-light Flora
    or a bacon buttie :D i.e a few bits of sinless bacon (is this available in the UK?) fried in fry-lite one-cal spray, on a couple of bits of bread, again with extra light flora when I usually have more time and can be bothered to make a bit more effort
    **careful with the poached eggs, they don't seem to suit everyone on Xenical/Alli, I just seem to be OK with them...but the yolk is where the fat hides!

    Lunch
    Either sarnies, made on wholegrain bread, extra light flora, extra light mayo, chicken or turkey slices and loads of salad
    Or half a tin of soup, with a couple of peices of toast
    Or 2 pittas, stuffed with chicken chunks, extra light mayo and salad

    Dinner
    Where do I start...if anything we're eating better than we ever did!
    Generally chicken, turkey or lean gammon steaks.
    Served either with a couple of spuds and steamed veg, or rice & salad.
    We might do a stir fry (again using one-cal spray) we're inventing our own marinades right now for the chicken & turkey, and last night I modified a chicken cordon bleu recipe out of a WW cookbook i have...and it was absolutely scrummy.
    For a very rare treat we'll grill a couple of sirloin steaks, as lean as we can make them...served up with a mountain of salad and a handful of home-made potato wedges.

    For someone who a self-confessed kitchen-phobe who has always *hated* cooking with a passion,so much so that previously hubby did 99% of the cooking in the evening...I'm finding I'm loving coming up with new, fun ways to eat within the 15g fat rule.
    The recipe suggestions on here are a brilliant start point, try a few, and don't be afraid to personalise them if you want to try a new twist on it.
    Google is also a great resource for those times when you sit there in the evening with a pack of chicken fillets in the fridge and all inspiration has left you!

    Easter is coming up in a few weeks, the same weekend as my 'stick-insect-thin' hubby's birthday..and he's kind of sad at the thought of Easter and birthday being a chocolate free zone in this house...so I'm planning to surprise him with the fat-free chocolate cake that someone put the recipe up for recently...and once he goes back to work he can take the rest in with him, so its not sat here in the house tempting me! :D
