Vegetarian. Dietary. Meat-Free Scotch Broth Recipe for the 5. 2 Fast and Feast Diet. Meat-Free Scotch Broth Recipe (5. 2 Fast and Feast Diet). Meat-Free Scotch Broth Recipe for the 5. 2 Fast and Feast Diet. I missed Monday again, and Tuesday, but I did plan the week ahead as I am having my usual two 5. 2 low-calorie days this week (I only managed one a week whilst I was travelling and away from home) and I also have lots of baking, preserving and cooking to do with all my garden produce, as well as baking for the freezer too……something I like to do from time to time.  Stews and soups are on the daily menu, and I love how I can really fill up on a hearty bowl of soup when following the WeightWatchers and 5. 2 diet and not feel hungry. Anyway, here is my mid-week meal plan, with one 5. 2 day added for the rest of the week, as I have already done one on Monday…. when I had a small boiled egg for breakfast (54 calories), Creamy Garlic Mushrooms on Toast (190 Calories) for lunch and a crispbread sandwich for tea, with tomatoes and mozzarella cheese (120 calories). Wednesday 10th October – 5. 2 Fast Day (500 calories). Milky cup of coffee (26 cals).  Greek Lunch Box Salad with Feta Cheese and Mint Dressing (200 cals). (including 53 calories for 150 mls skimmed milk).  Friday 12th October. Meat-Free Scotch Broth (Low Calorie 5. 2 Diet).

5-2 Diet Carrot and Cumin Soup

5-2 Diet Carrot and Cumin Soup

Vegan, Vegetarian. Dietary. Carrot and Cumin Soup – Frugal 5-2 Diet Fast Day Recipe. At this time of year when the weather is cold and winter seems to have gone on for ever, warming soups are a real mainstay for me, especially when I am on a 5-2 diet fast day.  But, since a can of full fat coconut milk has 812 calories, and even the half fat sort has 270 calories, it isn’t really a great way to eat on a 5-2 diet day. 5 minutes. 35 minutes. 250g Carrots (Peeled, top and tailed and cut into small chunks). 2 medium Onions (Peeled and chopped). 500ml Water. 1-2 teaspoon Cumin seeds. Add the carrot and cook for a further 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Simmer for 15-20 minutes until soft, then blitz with a hand blender or in a liquidiser. So this recipe for 5-2 diet carrrot and cumin soup just uses a teaspoon or two of coconut milk stirred through each bowlful of soup. Of course if you are not on the 5-2 diet and you want a richer and more luxurious soup, you can just reduce the amount of water and add more coconut milk, up to the full can. I’m still enjoying following the 5-2 diet and unbelievably I am still losing weight (despite all the meals out).  And, if you are really trying to keep the calories down, leave out the coconut milk for a soup that is just 50 calories for a bowl. Perfect 5-2 diet fast day food.
