**great for chicken and seafood**
Fresh herbs - I recommend sage/basil for chook and coriander for seafood
(fresh chilli is great to and you only need a little bit)
teaspoon of finely diced onion or spring onion for seafood
Grated zuchinni (adds moisture)
garlic ( 1/4 clove or a pinch of powder)
salt n pepper to taste
*Add all ingredients into a belnder and pulverise til well mixed.
Roll into small balls - makes more if you make them bite size! (Try rolling them in your crushed crispbread for a crunchy coating)
Fry in non stick pan until cooked. Use remaining vege allowance to create a bed of lettuce, tomato, and cucumber. Enjoy!

Mix altogether - you may need to play around for a while to get the balance right. An even taste of sweet sour salty.
Great for a Thai Beef Salad, Chicken and fish.

Hammer out veal allowance to create a schnitzel
Fresh Asparagus (allowance)
Freah garlic clove finely diced and mixed with dried Italian herb mix & salt and pepper
*Gently rub herb mixture onto veal evenly coating (not too thick) Place fresh asparagus inside veal and roll veal around to make a little parcel.
Place on a non stick pan and fry or alternately bake in alfoil in the oven - this way you at least capture the juices to pour over your remaining vege allwance. I use zuchinni and mushrooms. Bon Apetite!

OOOH that last one sounds good, I might try it.
It'd work with chook too, also, I wonder if we cut up long strips of zucchini and rolled them in with the asparagus, that'd make it really sweet inside. Niiiiiiice.
One of my faves is a DICED CHOOk AND VEG
I simply dice up the Chicken allowance, and set it frying in a frypan (with just a touch of spray oil for colour) and then chop up Zucchini, mushroom, garlic, onion and asparagus, and throw them all in together. Season it with Paprika and mushroom seed. It's really yum, and VERY fast to cook.

Chicken & Mango Salad with Creamy Mango Dressing
Chicken Breast (allowance)
Shallots, small Mushrooms, Lettuce (allowance)
Mango – Diced (fruit allowance)
1 teaspoon low fat Mayonnaise
Dried Basil & Mint
Dash White Wine Vinegar
Olive Oil Spray
Seasoning (I use a grinder with coarse sea salt, whole black pepper, garlic granules, parsley & oregano)
To make the dressing, mash ¼ of the mango and add mayonnaise, white wine vinegar, basil and mint. Mix together well.
Slice shallots and reserve a little for garnishing. Halve the mushrooms and shred the lettuce. Dice and season the chicken. Cook chicken in a lightly sprayed pan until almost done. Add mushrooms and shallots and cook quickly. Arrange chicken, mushrooms, shallots and ¾ of the mango on top of the lettuce. Drizzle dressing over the top and garnish with shallots.
Variation: Try replacing the chicken with fresh green prawns and replace the mint with fresh coriander.

OH MY OMELETTE
Beat egg until it's mega frothy
Add your desired vegetables. For me its: Onion, 1/2 tomato, capsicum, and fresh herbs.
Cook the omelette then squish the remaining 1/2 tomato over the top... it's simply the best way to begin the day

Does anyone have any recipes or ideas for non-meat eaters? Everyday i have a cheese & veg dish and an egg & veg dish. I'm going to get pretty bored of my ideas soon so anyone else's recipes would be most appreciated!
