Nome's Favourites - easy and nutritious!

These are some of my staple lunches and dinners - delicious, nutritious, high protein, and generally 400-500 calories for a complete meal. I use fresh ingredients and cook from scratch whenever I can, and that's what you'll find here.

Wrap this chicken in tortillas with whatever extra fillings you enjoy. Delicious! (And much better than that fajita seasoning you buy in packets!)

Try my recipe for Refried Beans with this too!

This isn't a risotto in the true sense of the word - it's much easier! And delicious too!


(This is not in the calculations, but I recommend some extra toppings for this dish if your diet can take it - sprinkle around 15g toasted sunflower seeds and around 25g grated cheddar cheese on each portion for an additional 190 extremely delicious calories!)

Flavoursome lemon and garlic chicken on couscous with chickpeas and red peppers, served on a bed of greens. This is a low-fat lunch or light dinner to die for served in the garden in the sun after a good workout!

A really delicious, filling, high protein lunch, much better than ordinary baked beans!

(You could cut the calories even lower of course by using low-fat cheese.)

This dish is full of great flavours and so easy. It looks - and tastes - really summery, and I love it as a light al fresco lunch or dinner.

These falafels in pitta with salad and houmous are full of goodness and really tasty!

This recipe makes six falafels - you will probably want two or three for a filling meal.

This is an old favourite - my signature dish as far as my family is concerned! The flavours are really good and the calories low considering how luxurious this tastes!

Serve with pasta or bread to mop up the juices (not calculated).

Guinness gives this stew a really rich indulgent flavour. It's perfect served with roast potatoes and parsnip, mashed swede, brussels sprouts, and my olive oil dumplings.

A great traditional addition to stews and casseroles. Great with my "Awesome Beef Stew"!

Also delicious with a big pinch of thyme added (or other herb as appropriate for your stew).

Delicious beef, pasta sheets, rich creamy sauce... A great traditional lasagne will always be a bit of an indulgence, but I've reduced the calories in mine by using lean beef, using double-concentrated tomato puree and a beef stock cube for a rich flavour, and using sauce flour for a butter-free white sauce. The portions are generous ; )

I love a cheesy sauce on top of my lasagne, but if you wanted to skip the cheese you could knock a further 80 calories off each portion.

I serve this as a side dish with my Lovely Chicken Tikka Masala and rice or naan, but it's got enough goodness in it to double up the servings and make it the main part of the meal if you prefer.
