    Homemade Crab Cakes with Cauliflower Potato Salad

    Cauliflower Potato salad - usual potato salad ingredients except everything is fat free or low fat and it's cauliflower instead of potatoes
    1tbs homemade sauce drizzled on crab cakes (non-fat)

    Picture one: low calorie pizza. I can't remember the exact calorie count, but it is a Weight Watchers wholewheat pitta bread with tomato puree double concentrate on top, with onion, fresh basil, sundried tomato, olive, lean ham, mushroom and reduced fat cheddar cheese (may have been other things, can't remember). Based roughly on this: I also made a few for my boyfriend based on BBQ chicken and bacon pizzas (BBQ sauce, chicken breast, lean ham, onion, mushroom, reduced fat cheddar cheese). I think mine was under 400 calories and my boyfriend's, if not under 400, was certainly under 500. They're small but loaded up and quite filling (and great for a pizza craving).

    Picture 2: based on this I made this in individual batches because apparently pork doesn't particularly take well to being used as leftovers. Basically just followed the instructions on the recipe but added the (partially steamed) veg at the end. Also added a single serve of roast potatoes, based on (great for chip cravings). Pinching from where I originally posted about this:

    Picture 3: what I've been having for my lunches for the past week. I left out the coriander (don't like it), and have been serving with ~200g boiled potato, but it's a very filling lunch (and works very well as leftovers, in fact, seems to get better as leftovers). As I made it, 228 calories/ serve (227.9 to be precise).

    Mother Hen Lunch

    Here is one I made. It's a mother hen on her nest. Oh... and a side salad.
    It was a lunch for my husband to take to work one day. I was feeling creative...

    Mother Hen was made out of 1 egg, carrot pieces for hen details and black sesame seed eyes.
    Spaghetti Nest ^_^
    Spinach Salad with olives and tomato slices.

    This was lunch today. I need to use up perishable stuff in my fridge as I leave the country tomorrow. It's three tomatoes, two carrots, two zucchini, all steamed, with scrambled egg (two eggs, about 40ml of milk, a gram of pepper, and 28g reduced fat mature cheddar cheese). Higher calorie than I'd like for lunch (506 calories) but incredibly filling.

    This is what I often do if I'm hungry- supplement my higher calorie food with steamed vegetables, as they're bulky and have very few calories.
