Low Calorie Carrot Cake.

I’m just going to throw it out there. A slice of this cake has: 151 calories, 8g of fat, 3g of protein, 9g of sugar, and 136mg of salt. All in all, it is one of the lowest calorie carrot cake (and cake in general) recipes I’ve ever come across. I have, over the past few…

King Prawn and Smoked Salmon Spaghetti

Literally the yummiest 300 calories you will ever consume. It’s light yet still filling, has a few flavours that compliment each other well. Can be made in around 20 minutes too, so go go! You will need (serves 2): White sauce (I bought this but I usually make my own with a little bit of…

Low Calorie Slow Cooker Curry

I’m not a curry kinda girl. I don’t particularly like spicy food and the only curries that I like have millions of calories in. The average curry at a curry house that I would consume has about 1,000 calories in it (including chapatti). Matt absolutely loves curries and so often I find myself having to…

Avocado Eggs

Eggs are fantastic to have at breakfast. Full of protein, low in fat and really tasty they are great to fill up on in a morning (especially if you’re watching your weight). This recipe is fairly simple but a really tasty change from the usual scrambled eggs. It has a slightly different flavour and the…

Tricolore Salad with a Poppety Twist

Just to let you know – this post is picture heavy! A traditional tricolore salad has mozzarella, tomatoes and avocado. I made a poppety twist and added a few yummy extras. It is super healthy and only contains around 200 calories so it is really great if you are looking for a healthy, and very filling alternative…

Panna Cotta

You can mop up your drool now. I know, I know this desert is completely and utterly delectable but also incredibly naughty at the same time. It is such a great treat though, and really easy to whip up when you fancy a treat.  You’ll need:  450ml Double Cream 4 Tablespoons caster sugar Vanilla extract…

Baked Cod with Roasted Peppers and Feta

If you ever read my fitness posts, you’ll know that I love a good meal. Its such a shame that most of the tastiest meals are laden with calories. This meal is only 251 calories per portion and it is so tasty and light that I had to share it with you. 600g Cod (you…

Brilliant Brownie

Matt is a brownie fiend. His mum makes the best brownies ever (fact) and I wrote down her recipe a while back. I couldn’t find it the other day, but I do have another recipe that is quite good. Ta dah! This is it. Quick, easy to make and delicious! You’ll need: 350g chocolate (dark/milk…

Easy bread

Bread. It is a wonderful creation. Nothing beats the smell of freshly baked bread, topped with something delicious like cheese. Well, maybe freshly cut grass is nicer but since I read that the smell is actually plants in distress I feel guilty for enjoying that! Bread is one of those foods that is so versatile,…

Baked Strawberry Cheesecake

Matt and I really fancied some late night baking the other night, so we whipped up this baked cheesecake. You don’t need gelatine and it is super tasty!  You’ll need 250g Digestives 1 tsp Mixed Spice 100g Melted Butter 500g Cream Cheese 160g Caster Sugar 1 tsp Vanilla Essence 1 tbsp Lemon Juice 4 Eggs…
