As part of my commitment (ahem) to Shaytober I’m on a healthy eating plan. I usually tend to eat quite well although there is always a crisp or a sweetie that sneaks in to my diet too often! This month I’m trying out some new ways to get a sugar fix without all of the unnecessary calories. My first stop was Pinterest and they didn’t disappoint – peanut buttery goodness galore! Another one of my favourite sites for scrummy, low-calorie meals and treats is Skinnytaste. I’ve made a few things in the past from there and everything was delicious, especially that cheesecake!
With the nights drawing in I’m craving comfort food and this to me means chilli, stew and pasta! A quick search returned these amazing recipes and I especially can’t wait to try out that Jambalaya!
Another major part of healthy eating that always gets me is portion control. Ian is a BIG eater (he is also stick thin) so whatever he dishes up for himself he usually gives me an equal amount and vice-versa. I’ve tried a few ways to manage my portions and the best way for me is to eat off a smaller plate. I’m not talking a tea-plate here, just a smaller-sized dinner plate. That way I don’t pile as much food on, yet I still feel like I’m eating a full meal!
Do you have any go-to, low calorie recipes that you pull out on a health kick?
