I thought it would be a good idea to share some of the meals we’ve had this week. I’ve kept in mind that I want to lose weight and be healthier but still enjoyed my meals.
I’m not giving up the pizza
We love pizza in our house and when we go out, so I don’t plan on giving it up and I don’t hink I have to. But there are a few tips to keep the calories low and make your Pizza meals healthier.
1. Opt for thin crust pizza
2. Share your pizza.
3. Add a big salad
This is the salad I made to go with our Pizza.
Iceberg lettuce, cucumber, apple, pomegranate, red onion, carrot, baby tomatoes.
I love my salads to be nice and colourful and I often add fruit too.
Add whatever you want to your salads, there are no rules.
I shared the pizza with my son instead of having a whole pizza each.
Jack, my teenage son isn’t keen on a mixed salad like this so he has little side bowls of cucumber, carrots and grapes. This means I’m keeping him nice and healthy too. These little veggie/fruit bowls are also good for a healthy snack when it’s not an actual meal time.
Trying something new
I saw a recipe on YouTube the other day that gave me the idea for this meal. I don’t have a name for it as I just made it up as I went along. Here’s what I did. I had a few veggie bits left over in the fridge.
In this dish I sprayed the frying pan with olive oil spray and added orange and green pepper strips, finely chopped pieces of broccoli and chopped baby tomatoes. I gently cooked them for a few minutes to soften the veggies and then poured over 2 beaten eggs, seasoned and sprinkled grated cheese on top. I let it sit for about 15 seconds and then put it in the oven to fluff it up a bit. Obviously make sure you’re pan is able to go in the oven, otherwise just cook on the hob.
The verdict: It was nice, I think I would leave the broccoli out in future and soften the rest a bit more and maybe add some thinly sliced red onion. I’d also let them get really soft before adding the egg.
Overall, I’ll definitely have another go at this. If you have your own meal ideas for slimmers, please share them below.
Here are some of the meals some of my 30 Day Weight Loss Challenge members
A quick and easy favourite of mine is 100g of pasta with spinach or rocket, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms and for the sauce use a couple of spoonfuls of the kerry low low spreadable cheese. It’s really tasty and filling. Sarah Hardy
Schnitzel… from lidl 200 calories and brown rice, another 216 calories. Plain, boring and very filling. Sarah Arrow
Red lentil soup… yummy! Gillian Rose Rodriguez
Turkey breast steaks marinated in coriander, chilli, and lemon. I can’t live without ginger and garlic so I threw that in as well. A smidge of honey. Served with boiled then grilled carrots, sweetcorn and broccoli salad. There is no ounce of fat in turkey breast. Not for a casserole. Freda Palm Muyambo
