I started this thread in the group - but it is really hard to post recipes there that stick to the 1000 character count - so I am restarting it here. Anyone who is doing Petal's "Lose a stone by xmas" challenge - or indeed anyone who isn't - share your low calorie/healthy recipes here. The more the merrier - anyone who has a low cal recipe - even if you are not trying to lose weight yourself. WE WANT YOUR RECIPES!! (Especially you Petal!) Thanks My first contribution: Bacon, Leek & Mushroom Pasta - 500 Calories (roughly) I shop at Sainsbury's in the UK - I assume you can find things that are similar in other places For a single serving I use: 1 bacon loin steak - chopped 1 leek (the white part) - sliced A bunch of mushrooms - chopped (I use LOTS but however many takes your fancy really) 70g dry weight pasta shapes of choice 2 tbsp. low fat crème fraiche. 20g low fat mature cheddar. Boil the pasta. While the pasta is boiling, fry the sliced leeks, chopped bacon and mushrooms in low calorie spray. Drain the pasta and throw in the fried leek, bacon and mushroom. Over a low heat, add the low fat crème fraiche and cheddar and stir in until everything is hot. Tip into a bowl and eat. The whole thing is 500 calories (roughly - this is dependent on the crème fraiche - the type I use is 20 cals per tbsp) and the calorie content of the cheese (low fat isn't uniform on calories across brands) but either way it is yummy and filling and fast (15 mins start to finish so its great for when you get in from work or wherever ).
