    Hiya hun!

    There are loads of low fat recipes in the slimming world section! They dont have the fat co ntent on them but all the meat is extra lean (less than 5% fat) and are cooked with out oil! I have copied and pasted a few! hope it helps!

    xxxxxxxxxx

    I came home with nothing prepared tonight and set about making my own little version of a lamb tikka massalla.
    I used:

    Lean cubed lamb
    2 red onions
    Tinned potatoes
    Chopped tinned tomatoes
    Tikka powder
    A little chicken stock
    Spinach
    1 Tbsp low fat fromage frais and fresh coriander stirred through at the end

    Smash Pizza
    Lean ham
    Sliced onion
    REDUCED FAAT cheese
    Pack of original smash
    Mushrooms
    Splash of passata
    Fresh pineapple

    Base - make up the smash with as little boiling water as possible, needs to be dry so it goes crunchy. Spray a tray with frylight and pat out the smash into pizza shape (as this as you can - without it falling apart), bake in oven for 20 mins until brown. Turn over and add topping, place back in the oven for about 10 mins and then eat.

    Topping - I basically cooked some onions, added mushrooms and then a bit of passata to sog it down and reduced down so it wasn't too soggy. Add it to top of base and then wack cheese and ham on and put back in oven for 10 (as above).

    You can use whatever you like for a topping e.g. sweetcorn, peppers, chicken, bacon etc.

    I have a lot of WW/Supermarket own brand low-fat ready meals, but I always bulk them out with extra vegetables (or salad in summer) as they don't fill me up.
    For example, the other night, I had Tesco light choices beef in black bean sauce with egg rice (the WW one is nicer) but I bought a bag of stir fry veg and had some of that to go with it. It was more than enough for me, and I can eat for England.
    Other than that, I sometimes do stir-frys using Blue Dragon sauces which come in sachets, and straight-to-wok noodles. You can add whatever meat/veg you like to those.
    Sometimes I make myself a 'roast' dinner, although more often than not, I'll subsitute the roast for a chop, or a turkey burger or something, but I always have boiled new potatoes, loads of veg, a yorkshire pudding and gravy (made with granules).

    It's hard to know what recipe ideas to give because it depends what you like eating really, and whether you're much of a cook, but most things you eat already can be adapted to a low-fat plan, like spaghetti bolognese, chilli, curry - it's just about choosing the leanest cut of meat, not using oil to cook with, and using very low fat sauces (or make your own sauce from scatch).
    I make chilli relatively often, and I've also got a mushroom risotto recipe which is lovely - and just stodgy enough to feel indulgent!

    Any meat should be fine as long as it's a lean cut. Sometimes that's the easiest, pork steaks with salad/veg does me well!

    As requested: Wild Mushroom Risotto

    The only thing I do differently is that I don't use the white wine. I don't drink it often enough to make it worth opening a whole bottle! (I'd only feel forced to drink the rest of it!!)

    The blog I stole it from is worth a read if you've never seen it before. It's written by an Australian woman who lives in Scotland and lost half her body weight a while back! She's maintaining now, but the archives and her book are inspirational :)
