Low Calorie Sweet and Sour Chicken For the 5-2 Diet

Low Calorie Sweet and Sour Chicken For the 5-2 Diet

Sweet and Sour Chicken the Low Calorie 5-2 Diet Way.  Since I don’t have either, the Truvia has been sitting in the cupboard for a while, but, on my last 5-2 diet fast day I had a craving for sweet and sour chicken. My mother’s old recipe, probably the one you use yourself if you make this at home, involved tomato ketchup, sugar and a tin of pineapple, none of which would have worked particularly well at keeping the calories low so that the dish was suitable for the 5-2 diet or for that matter any other low calorie diet. 5-2 Diet Low Calorie Sweet and Sour Chicken. 5 minutes. 15 minutes. 20 minutes. 150g Skinless chicken breast (chopped into 1cm cubes). 1/2 Red chilli (De seeded and sliced). 2 Tomatoes (skinned and chopped). 2 teaspoons Light soy sauce. 2 teaspoons White wine vinegar (or rice vinegar if you have it). 1 piece Ginger ((about 2cm) peeled and finely chopped). 50g Pak Choi (white part only, chopped). 50g Carrot (chopped into 2 cm strips). 2 Spring onions (chopped into 2cm strops). 30g Red Pepper (sliced into 2 cm strips). 1-2 teaspoon Sweetener of your choice (I used truvia, but you may prefer to add honey or sugar. Spray a small pan with oil and gently soften the ginger, garlic and chili for 2-3 minutes, stirring all the time. Add in the chopped tomatoes, 2 teaspoons of soy, 2 teaspoons of vinegar.  This makes a substantial plate of food which should feed even the hungriest person on a 5-2 diet fast day and is under 300 calories for a portion. I hope the 5-2 diet is working well for you.  But I do always feel better the day after a 5-2 diet fast day and even if I don’t lose weight every week I suspect it is stopping me from becoming a balloon.

5-2 Diet Tips

5-2 Diet Tips

The Morrocan Chickpea Tagine was my favourite of all the ready meals for dieting. Dietary. 5-2 Diet Tips – Eat Well and Cook Less.   I enjoy cooking on 5-2 diet fast days.  So here are some 5-2 diet tips for those of you who prefer not to cook.   Well, because on special offer at the Co-op these were under £2. 312 calories a pot though.  I tried eating it with shirataki rice (5 calories for a portion), but I’m afraid it was dreadful, rubbery and I regretted even thinking it might be a good idea (the noodles ARE quite ok.   Now, I know that one of the best ways to stay feeling full on 5-2 diet fast day is to eat food like beans and pulses that are low GI.   And these cheerful pots are really very low calorie – the Morroccan Chickpea Tagine is just 211 calories while the Mexican Chilli is 214 calories. They also won the 2012 Healthy Awards for best Slimming and Fitness products.   And, although I thought I’d be hungry and had enough calories to add a small portion of rice (75g cooked rice at 100calories), I really didn’t need it and ended up leaving most of the rice.   I’ll definitely be keeping a chickpea tagine in the fridge for emergency 5-2 fast day feeding.   So I figured that I could have three skewers for about 200 calories, leaving me enough room to add in a shirataki noodle and vegetable stir fry at 68 calories.    Strictly speaking not a ready meal, they have the advantage of a long shelf life (2-3 weeks) and suit my personal style of eating because I can cook ‘around’ them. 1-2. 5 minutes. 15 minutes. 1/2 Red Pepper. 50g Carrot. 2 cloves Garlic. 1/2 teaspoon Sesame Oil. So, even if you prefer NOT to spend your time in the kitchen on 5-2 diet fast days, well, you really can feast, even on a fast day. If you are doing the 5-2 diet (or any other low calorie diet programme) do you eat ready meals.  And if you are thinking of starting the 5-2 here’s a link to my 5-2 diet tips for beginners.
