A super easy overnight breakfast idea using Weetabix. Great for low calorie, tasty breakfasts that are perfect for a slimming friendly diet.

Have you seen the trend of doing the rounds, using Weetabix in an overnight oats style dish?

This is my take on it, with a tasty banoffee pie flavour, using banana and Biscoff spread.

7 Day Low Calorie Healthy Meal Plan

 My Low Calorie 7 Day Meal Plan is perfect for anyone who enjoys delicious meals and is watching their calorie intake.

 This is a super simple easy to follow low-calorie meal plan. 

I've been focusing mainly on lower calorie meals, and by keeping meals low in fat and low in sugar.

For anyone new to calorie counting, the basic principles are that women should have 2000 calories a day and men should have 2500 calories a day. In order to lose weight, you eat fewer calories than your body requires.

This plan is based on the principle of 1600 calories per day and is aimed at one person, who would usually have a 2000 calorie allowance. 

A lot of the meals provide loads of leftovers so make the most of these for your lunches. Of course, if you're making this for more than just yourself you can double up the ingredients to add more to the meal.

If your aim is to be healthy rather than to lose weight, then just add snacks to increase it up to 2000 or 2500 calories a day.

I have allowed a few spare calories on most days for anything extra like sauces that you may add.

It is always recommended to double-check your calories, and if you have any change in brand or quantity, adjust it accordingly.

I've added some snacks as a guide, but if these don't take your fancy, try and find an alternative snack for similar calorie values.

I haven't included any snacks in this plan, but here are some low-calorie snack ideas which you can add in and adjust total daily calories accordingly.

CLASSIC (but easy) SLOPPY JOES

Years ago, when our hungry teenage boys came home for dinner (with hungry friends tagging along) it was a challenge to feed them all with one pan of Sloppy Joe's. Unexpected guests at the dinner table were fun, but required some quick thinking, so I "stretched" this simple but tried and true recipe, by adding kidney beans, shredded carrots, and cheese. It was always a big hit. Necessity is the mother of invention I guess, thank goodness for versatile recipes like this one!!



These days, the kids are all off on their own, but Covid threats keep me out of the grocery store more, so I still make full size batches of this recipe and freeze the extra.

I put the "extra" filling into a freezer bag, then pat the filling to  1" thick before freezing it. This "thin disk" of cooked Sloppy Joe filling thaws out FAST!!! We love "instant" meals like this.

1 pound lean ground beef (I use 90% lean)
3/4 cup chopped onion
2/3 cup ketchup
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 level tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1/8 (to)1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (*see note)
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
5 hamburger buns, split and toasted

Saute the onions, then add the burger and cook until the
 meat is no longer pink (chopping up the meat as it cooks) (drain meat if necessary).

Stir in remaining ingredients (except buns). Simmer on med-low for about 15 minutes (this will thicken the filling, but don't let it get too dry). Butter and toast the hamburger buns, then fill with the Sloppy Joe mixture and serve.


NOTE: I ALWAYS serve our Sloppy Joes with a slice of cheese under the meat mixture and a squirt of yellow mustard on top of the meat (our favorite way to eat this sandwich).

NOTE:
 *1/8 teaspoon of cayenne adds a "little something" extra to the flavor of this sandwich, but it is NOT spicey, that's for sure (hubby hates spice). If you like a little spark in your sandwich, use about 1/4 teaspoon.



ENJOY !!!

Spicy Creamy Chicken Pasta Recipe | Healthy Low Calorie Dinner Recipe

 


Succulent spicy chicken breast with creamy spicy pasta. Delicious, easy, slimming friendly low-calorie dinner recipe.

One of my most popular pasta recipes is my Nandos Chicken Pasta, and there is something special about a creamy pasta dish with a bit of a kick.

This is where I got my inspiration for this recipe.

Delicious creamy pasta with spinach and mushrooms, and a spicy chicken breast, with both pasta and chicken having a cheeky little kick!

Scroll down for the full recipe and instructions! 



Why Pasta Water?


The most important thing I have to stress with this recipe, and any other cheese and pasta recipe, is the pasta water. 

This stuff is like liquid gold, and can thicken up any pasta sauce, and help create the smooth creamy sauce in this dish. 

When you've cooked your pasta, drain some of the water off and save it.

Oat & Yogurt Breakfast Cups Recipe | Healthy Slimming Friendly Breakfast Recipe

I used strawberries and blueberries, but any fruit would be delicious.

You can also play around with what favour yoghurt you fill them with, I used classic vanilla.

I found that the key to getting the cups out of the muffin tin is to wait for them to go completely cold before trying to get them out. That and also spraying the muffin tin with low-calorie cooking spray.
