QUICK AND EASY – Without the Calories – takes all the hassle out of cooking your favourite food with speed and ease, the low-cal way.
When you are trying to lose weight, cooking instead of relying on convenience foods will help you keep a really close eye on your calories. But if you aren’t a confident cook or have very little time to spend in the kitchen, you’ll need a collection of quick and easy recipes that can be rustled up in minutes.
In this book, I’ve created a variety of speedy recipes that shouldn’t take more than 45 minutes from start to finish. Most of the recipes take under 30 minutes, but I’ve tried to b realistic about the time they could take. Recipes that need freezing or marinating may take a little longer, but the preparation time is usually incredibly quick.
I’ve reworked the ingredients to reduce the calories, while still trying hard to keep all the flavour and appetite appeal, helping you lose weight in the most delicious and simple way possible.
I’m not going to make rash promises about how many pounds you will shed, but I do know that when it comes to losing weight, finding foods that give you pleasure and fit into your lifestyle are the key to success. When you eat well without obsessing over rapid weight-loss, it’s easier to relax and lose what you need to comfortably- and safely.
To help everyone enjoy these reinvented dishes, I’ve used easy-to-find ingredients and given clear, simple cooking instructions. There’s also freezer information included where appropriate, so you know which dishes you can store safely for another day. If you’re already following a diet plan, you’ll find additional nutritional information at the back of the book that’ll help you work my recipes into your week.
And, if you’re stuck for inspiration and have a few pounds to lose, try my 123 Plan. It couldn’t be easier.
