200 calories of goodness!
I’ve had a shit 3 weeks of dieting like an African child and being a gym nut like I’m a Christian and its church, but my weight hasn’t changed SO I’m going to start the 5:2 diet. Google if you’re interested.
Today was a ‘fast’ day - I’m only allowed 500 calories - this was dinner.
You will need:
100g cooked quinoa (see packet for instructions)
1 red onion, diced
1 courgette, diced
1 yellow pepper, diced
5 cherry tomatoes, halved
Garlic, to taste (I use like half a bulb)
Dried chilli flakes, 1/2 tsp
Soften the red onion on a low heat until it is totally soft, then add the courgette, garlic, chilli flakes, salt and yellow pepper and cook for 10 mins on a medium heat, stirring regularly. Next, add the cherry tomatoes and quinoa and a little boiling water and cook for a further 5 mins. Add salt and serve.
Quinoa. That’s what that stuff is, before you ask. 3ProPoints per serving (30g) and I make mine with half of a veg oxo cube (I used beef here because I ran out) and cook for 10 mins in twice the volume of water to quinoa. It is packed full of protein and super filling, and around half the propoints of rice! You can get it from health food shops and most big supermarkets, and I just think it is wonderful :D
