    Hi everyone,
    I was just wondering what your favourite low calorie foods are?

    I feel like im stuck in a bit of a rut and just stuck to microwave dinners this week as they are easy!

    So share your favourite meals/snacks and inspire me!!!!

    Great thread, I love getting ideas from other people.

    For a good snack I like a low fat laughing cow cheese triangle on 2 slices of 'crusts away' bread. Good for 125cals.

    For a sweet treat I like 2 of the M&S Meringue nests (yummy and only 55 cals each) with low fat yoghurt and a few rasperries for 200 cals. My husband always thinks I'm being realy naughty when I have this! - I have tried the meringue nests from ASDA and Tesco and they were horrible, really artificial tasting so it does have to be M&S for me.

    hmm... I have a few so bear with me... :D

    1: Ham and lentil soup (scottish style :p)

    Ingredients:
    Average sized bag of red split lentils
    knorr ham stock cubes, as many to taste but at least 5 (really must be knorr!)
    1 x small swede
    1 x medium leek
    10-15 carrots
    water.

    Method:
    1. Rinse lentils under cold water then add to half a stock pot of boiling water and cook until mushy then add stock cubes (to taste really, I like mine strong so usually add 7 or 8!)
    2. Grate swede and carrots finely and chop the leek into small squares then add to the cooked lentils.
    3. Periodically spoon the "scum" off the top until there is none left and stir often.
    4. Once the vegetables are cooked through, serve and enjoy!

    This makes enough to last us the week!


    2. Beef, tomato & butter bean stew.

    I cook this in the slow cooker and once prepared I just bung everything in and cook on high for around 6 hours.

    1lb diced beef (I use the frozen stuff)
    1 x small onion, sliced not diced!
    2 x tins of tomatoes
    1 x tbsp tomato puree
    1 x tbsp honey
    1 x small tin butter beans
    2 x beef oxo
    2 x tbsp beef gravy granules
    ground pepper to taste.

    best served with mashed potatos with the skins on or brown rice and green beans yum!


    3. dairylea dunkable dips with raw veg like carrot or pepper 100cals (the dips are only 50cals each)

    4. Asda smart price or any cheap chocolate mousse 95cals

    5. an apple and 25g natural peanut butter 200cals

    6. my special smoothie recipe!

    1 x banana
    25g peanut butter
    squeeze OJ
    small handful of strawberries (fresh or frozen)
    3 x desert spoons greek fat free yogurt
    1 x dessert spoon of honey
    4 x ice cubes

    Bung it in the blender 1 ingredient at a time until all smoothly blended. Makes 2 smoothies for me, 200cals each and if you have it all, counts as a quick easy brekkie! :)


    Thats all for now, I hope you try some of it :D

    I can't eat carbs, I find them totally addictive and end up bingeing. I read somewhere that french bread releases more sugar into the bloodstream than eating pure sugar. It sort of made sense to me.

    I eat very lean roast beef (100 grams is about 120 cals) or prawns smothered in lemon juice.

    I like tangerines too.

    I love king prawns with stir fry vegetables with garlic and tinned tomatoes. So quick, so low in calories and so tasty
