Until I read this book, I hadn't realised how satisfying a sub-300 calorie meal could be. Buckwheat pancakes with maple syrup or blueberries, for instance, only comes to 285 calories. I'd add a squeeze of lemon juice myself because maple syrup is so intensely sweet. Diana's recipe uses half buckwheat and half wholemeal flour which is very filling, but if you are gluten-intolerant, I'm sure it would be almost as satisfying with only buckwheat. Another surprising sub-300 calorie recipe is Spaghetti Rustica (what I know as spaghetti alla puttanesca, but that's not a name for polite company). Can anything so delicious really be slimming? Actually, being pernickety, I checked the calorific calculations for several of the dishes and found them faultless.
Diana has helpfully divided the recipes into breakfasts, lunches and dinners of about 100 calories, about 200 calories and less than 300 calories. I'm particularly looking forward to trying Sesame Kale Chips (British translation Sesame Cavolo Nero Crisps, although I imagine you could use curly kale) at a mere 60 calories a serving. I also like the sound of Mini Zucchini (courgette) Pizzas.
It contains a bunch of tasty, easy-to-follow and make recipes - some are for breakfast, others lunch and dinner.
Didn't believe that I could have a delicious breakfast of about 100 calories. But it is possible and this book shows you how.
I particularly like the recipe for melon-ginger soup, which I intend to try soon. Great pictures too. I highly recommend this book.
They've tried hard to include high nutritional value in the suggested meals.
The emphasis is on planning ahead to achieve your goals & that's what this book aims to do.
