Low Calorie Meals

Low Calorie Meals

October 10, 2017   3 Comments

Low calorie meals are not hard to make. They simply take a little more creativity than higher calorie meals.

I find that if you add red meat or cheese, just about anything can taste good.

For this site, I have spent a lot of my time chopping vegetables and using spices to instill flavor instead of pouring on the butter.

Usually meals with fish, soups, chicken breast, or lots of (or only) vegetables are low calorie. There is an added benefit because these meals are also healthy!

All of these meals are less than 400 calories (some far less). Some of these are complete meals and some you can add a salad or a little rice (or fresh bread) to complete. Once you get in the habit of making them, you might never go back to a cheeseburger and fries (800 calories or more).

What is an Instapot? I googled and pressure cookers came up.

@Janet - I write about it in this post: https://snack-girl.com/snack/green-salsa-chicken-in-an-instant-pot/

It is a combination of a slow cooker and a pressure cooker - and you can brown things in it.
Thanks for your question!!
