I was going to call this post ‘Popcorn without the guilt‘ but actually no food is necessarily a bad food! It comes down to portion control and in fact I know there are people who will only crave food more if they feel they’re being deprived.
But yes, I thought I’d share my dinner with you. This is so low-cal with a portion of plain noodles, green beans, aubergine (eggplant), mushrooms and soy sauce. Cooked within 10 minutes and actually something that feels doable as a non-cook. Trust me, I don’t enjoy cooking although I’m starting to get very slowly adventurous. Hubby and I used to do lots of stir-fries but we just got out of the habit. Anyway, I’ve a stack of veg to use up so I’ll be doing a stir fry for the next few evenings.
And then popcorn for dessert! Actually, I’m not normally a fan of popcorn but I saw these were just 53 calories and they’re actually fairly tasty (can be bought from Sainsbury’s in the UK). But no wonder why they’re very low-cal. The bag is about a quarter full! But psychologically, I feel like I’ve had a bag of popcorn and I just took my time devouring each one. In truth, I could have downed the pack in one!!! Usually, if I have a dessert, I’m more likely to go for a 6 calorie sugar-free jelly but I had room in my calorie limit to check out these today.
I’ll be back either Friday or Saturday but, in the meantime, I’d love to know what are your go-to low-cal meals and snacks. Bonus points for anything that can be cooked in next to no time!
