    Hi folks - 2 weeks on SS+ and looking for good ideas for tasty 200 calorie meals. Okay - not many calories to play with, but white fish, chicken, spinach, pakchoi and mushrooms will very soon be testing my low boredom threshold!! Help anyone??:wave_cry:

    I'm on 810 and the choice is not much better! I try to think of the food like a shake or soup ie nutritional supplement not actually a meal. Using a bit of a soup packet for flavour can help.

    Hi - I doubt we can have red cabbage 'cos of the acid. I spent my first week liberally dousing my fish in lemon juice, until my CDC said citric acid was off limits!! Would be good if we could though! Tx

    Yes, you can have pickled red cabbage :)

    I tended to keep my meal very plain rather than dinner trying to emulate dinner at the Fat Pig cooked by Heston Blumenthal :D

    Just like Laura Croft really. Considered it a supplement, and extra cambridge meal, rather than a 'real' meal

    I've made a mean thai soup (used to be my favourite thai noodle soup!), but I'm not sure what spices are allowed- it basically consists of stock (bouillon or CD sav water flavouring), garlic, ginger, chilli, coriander leaf, lime leaves, lemon grass (I'm not sure about these, would normally use limes, I did post but noone replied, - had it anyway) boiled together for about 30 minutes to make a stock. Then I add either tofu (marinaded in garlic and reduced salt soy) or some chicken, with a bit of chopped mushroom and pak choi.

    Gives the nice savoury fix I've been craving. However, I still don't know whether I'm supposed to be allowed some of these ingredients- I have used them and stayed in ketosis, but I guess that depends on your body.

    I've also added a few bits to CD chilli soup mix- like chicken, coriander etc- makes it similar to a thai curry :D x

    My God. My food on SS+ is so basic!! Your Thia soup sounds delish! I just have salad - well mainly lettuce, cucumber and radish - with either cottage cheese, chicken or tuna, and a very low fat dressing.

    And you know, it's suiting me to the ground - i so look forward to it!!

    I should be more adventurous I suppose... I've never been a "great" cook - I cook - but I haven't got that much confidence. Must try harder!

    I do a really nice fish bake, I cook cauliflower and brocolli in the veg boullion and cook some haddock in the oven then I put it all together in a little bowel and top with cottage cheese and grill until brown. I do half the amount of fish we are alowed and half cottage cheese. I also season the fish before baking with herbs and black pepper. When the veg is strained from the veg Boullion I have this as a clear soup as well. You can use chicken or quorn mince instead of fish too. The quorn mince makes it kind of like a mock shepherds pie.

    Thanks all, some good hints and tips. Much as I try I cannot think of my meal as another CD as the whole reason for SS+ was to have a break from the CD meals!
