Whether you're on a diet or just want to maintain your ideal weight, these quick and easy recipes, of either 100, 200 or 300 calorie portions, enable you to watch your calorie intake while eating tasty dishes that leave you feeling full. You'll find a wide range of recipes for every individual taste and occasion, from family favourites to classic meals from around the world, and even healthy versions of familiar fast foods and takeaways. All recipes are low-fat, low to medium GI and within our easy-to-use calorie bands, allowing you to relax and simply enjoy eating.
For miserable calorie-counters everywhere, this book offers hope for a life still filled with delicious food. The divine Ms Thomas issues her own ‘10 commandments’, of which the most memorable are undoubtedly ‘Don’t starve yourself’ and ‘Allow yourself the occasional treat’. However, she does also ensure that her readers adhere to a few of the others by providing 100 recipes with reduced fat and sugar, no processed ingredients, added fibre and no ‘hidden calories’. There is even a calorie league, with the first recipes at 100 calories, the following at 200, and the 300-calorie dishes hidden away at the back of the book. Most of the recipes do look unexpectedly satisfying and interestingly international, and include such mouth-watering delicacies as fruity filo stacks, Indonesian chicken satay, Mexican beef salsa pot, Greek grilled halloumi and vegetables, Jamaican jerk chicken, chunky minestrone and Baileys banoffee custard.
