    As part of my push to get back on track, I'm going to up my superfree food quota!

    Has anyone got any meal ideas that use just superfree foods?

    I'm thinking of making a quorn cottage pie with a swede-mash top for tea tonight, but I'd like other suggestions if you've got any!

    thanks

    How about spicy roasted butternut squash and vegetables? I like to cut BNS into big chunks and roast it with cumin, coriander, dried chilli and crushed garlic. After about 20 mins or so add some peppers, red onion and courgette (or whatever else you like) and toss in the spices, adding more Fry light if needed and roast until cooked.

    Lovely with some balsamic vinegar and a HEX serving of feta if you like.

    Yum!!

    I find omelettes really good for superfree. Fill them up with onion, peppers, mushroom and add a bit of cheese or tuna, yummy!

    I'm already a roast veg pro! ;) Sounds quite similar to how I do mine Jaylou - I love actually roasting them in the balsamic too, flavour is gorgeous.

    Omelettes are a good idea too...I'm weird though, I love eggs but am funny about omelettes. Shall persevere with them.

    Ooh...stuffed peppers!

    Sure, here you go. Sorry it's a bit late.

    Ready in 40mins

    Free on Original
    13 syns on green unless quorn mince is used.

    Ingredients are:
    1 onion
    3 garlic cloves
    1 red chilli
    1 tsp cinnamon
    794g lean mince beef/quorn
    198g cherry toms
    400g can of toms
    624g swede
    1tspn bovril
    8tbsp chopped basil
    1tsp sweetener
    seasoning

    1) spray a large non stick frying pan with fry light and place over a medium heat. Add the onion, garlic and red chilli and stir fry for 3-5 mins.
    2) Add the cinnamon and mince and stir fry for 3-4 mins, drain away any excess liquid. Stir in the tomatoes, swede, Bovril, chopped basil and sweetener and bring to the boil. Season well, cover tightly and cook on low heat for 20-25 mins.
    3) Serve garnished with basil leaves if desired.

    Not sure how it would taste with quorn mince instead, but I don't see why it wouldn't work if people like quorn :confused:

    It was the 4lb loss that got me to target - so it was a fantastic loss at the end of a long slow journey :D

    That week I ate only superfree food, but made sure that I had 2 A choices and 2 B choices every day (from any list) - my consultant agreed that this would be a good (and safe) way of superboosting my weight loss - so for example I could make the veggi stir fry into a chicken stir fry, but would only have the B choice portion size of chicken, or I would have a 227g jacket potato with a huge portion of ratatouille - I made sure I ate loads of the superfree foods though and had lots of water - even a day or two of this will flush out your system :D

    It's a great idea. I'll have to give it a go when I've got an easy week at work and nothing on at the weekend!

    Pretty well, thank you.
    I've saved most of my syns from yesterday as I'm going out for lunch today, and to a party this evening. Lunch should be fine as it's a pub and I can have a jacket and something. The party might be more challenging! But I'm driving so at least that's saving on the drink.

    Doing quite well on my superfree foods.
    Yesterday I had eggs, mango, pineapple, salad, quorn, carrots, swede, mushrooms, onion and strawberries!:D

    This thread is v useful. I am going to try to have some superfree with healthy extra days and there are lots of ideas on here to try! Think I will need to stock up on all the ingredients and get planning.
