When we used to live in Manchester we used to head to Altrincham Market most weekends as the food in there was always good. Inside there was the most amazing little window that served the freshest Korean Rice Bowls and they were always my go too choice of dinner. I got a proper craving for one this week and so I decided to try and recreate it at home. The result was delicious. Low in points yet so filling and satisfying, the flavours and textures of this dish are so fresh and zingy, you will want it again the next day!
One of my favourite changes brought about by Flex was that salmon, one of my favourite fish, became 0sp. I’d always eaten a lot of salmon anyway but, since the change, I’ve been using it in ways I may have avoided a little before, such as here with pasta and a creamy sauce.
This recipe came about one Saturday night when I wanted to make a quick and easy dinner with the ingredients I had in the fridge/store cupboard. I threw them all into a plastic bag, headed to my sisters and freestyled to see what I could come up with. The result was the delicious pasta dish which we both thoroughly enjoyed (I could have quite happily licked the bowl!).
Over the next couple of days lots of us will be hitting the supermarkets to do our ‘big Christmas shop’. Now if you, like me, want to prepare yourself to avoid the temptation of all the high point foods on the Christmas table, try and pop a few ingredients into the trolley so you can make yourself a low point option which still feels like a treat.
As you can probably tell by a lot of my recent recipes, vegetable noodles are a firm favourite in our house at the moment. Most supermarkets now sell the pre spiralised version and not only do they make a lovely quick and easy option for tea, but they are mostly 0 smart points.
This quick dish is perfect for a weekend lunch or a light evening meal. It’s fuss free and uncomplicated but the flavours are truly satisfying. I’ve used mini soft taco’s in the recipe below as they are only 3sp and filling enough for me however if you feel you need a bigger wrap, go with a normal sized tortilla for only 1sp extra.
Given my love for an avocado related weekend breakfast, I often have left over avocado lurking in the fridge through the week. Keen to include it within my main meals in a low SP manner, last night I thought it may be a nice addition with salmon.
This was the very first recipe I posted on my blog back in 2012. At this point I had lost 12lb eating lots of exciting new meals and trying out lots of new recipes. It was after the realisation that I could eat delicious food and lose weight that I started my blog up and I haven’t looked back since!
