Recipes I've Shared:

Cheesy spinach cornbread muffins

Lovely snack or side for a salad, quick to whip up, and store well in the fridge for a few days.

Awesome Beef Stew

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.

Tlayudas (Mexican pizzas!)

Gorgeously messy folded pizzas, full of goodness.

Use low-fat cheese for an even healthier lunch or dinner!

Nome's Lasagne

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.

Beans and tuna on toast

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.)

Nome's Vegetable Chilli

Not getting your vegetables? You can't fail with this tasty super-low-fat recipe!

Spicy Pumpkin and Potato Stew

Easy and delicious one-pot dish. Super-high in fibre and vitamins!

Chargrilled Asparagus with Spaghetti

Delicious and easy supper. Low sodium, high fibre, vitamins, good fats, and just 400 calories!

Super-healthy Brownies!

You'll never believe these brownies have less than a gram of fat each! Don't eat them all at once - they taste EVEN BETTER after a few days!

If you don't have applesauce, peel and core an apple, cut into chunks, and stew in a little water on a medium heat (with a tiny dash of nutmeg and cinnamon if you like) until soft. Then puree with an electric whisk or blender.

Falafels

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.

Fuss-free Beef and Broccoli stir fry

Anyone can stir fry! This quick fuss-free recipe uses less ingredients than other versions, and still has incredible flavour! It's easy, healthy and delicious, with 46g protein, lots of fibre, a good dose of healthy fats, and heaps of potassium, vitamin C and vitamin A.

Pumpkin and Potato Stew

Easy and delicious one-pot dish. Super-high in fibre and vitamins!

The sodium is a little high - feel free to use a low-sodium stock and/or make your own curry paste if you prefer - this will bring it down considerably.

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).


Very Good (27 ratings)
Fajita Chicken

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!

Chicken and Vegetable Pasta Bake

Great for all the family. High in protein and full of vegetables too!

Also great to reheat the next day!

Most of the fat comes from the cheese so pick a low-fat variety if you prefer.


Incredible! (2 ratings)
Lovely Chicken Tikka Masala

Serve with my Lovely Aloo Gobi and some rice or naan.

Luxurious Tarragon Chicken

Easy and so delicious.

Serve with a green vegetable such as broccoli or beans.

Lovely Aloo Gobi

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.

Creamy Chicken Pasta Bake

An easy and delicious recipe for all the family. Surprisingly healthy with 7g fibre and 31g protein per serving and plenty of vegetable goodness hidden in that creamy sauce and crispy topping!

Nome's Whole Wheat Veggie Pizza

Traditional pizza will never be diet food, but here's me giving it a good go!

You could reduce the calories even more by putting some of the dough aside and rolling it even thinner, or by finding a good low-fat cheese (I haven't yet) or using less cheese.

Amazingly Moist Banana Cake

It's amazingly moist and so delicious!

Quick tuna pasta with green beans

I love this recipe because it's so quick and easy to make, only takes one pan, it's filling, and it packs plenty of protein from the tuna and vegetabley goodness from the beans.

Easy Chicken and Courgette Risotto

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!)

Nome's Veggie Daal served with Haddock

Super high-protein, super low-fat, super low-calorie, super healthy!

Spicy Chicken Couscous Salad

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!

Easy Tuna Biriani with Green Beans

This is really delicious - aromatic and filling and so easy. Feel free to add more spice to taste.

Chicken a la Nome

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).

Chocolate Biscuit Cake

Not a dieters food at all, in fact it's utterly sinful, but I made it, I ate it and I need to track it, and you just might like to treat yourself some day...

Caution, this cake contains raw eggs, which are not recommended for some people (pregnant women etc.)

Tuna Pesto Pasta

Not great on the nutrition this one, I admit, but it's one of my go-to recipes when I'm pushed for time or fresh ingredients.
If you DO have fresh ingredients, this is great with green veg like green beans or brocolli, or a green salad.

Summery Pasta with Green Beans and Olives

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.

Refried beans

Serve this with my fajita chicken, some chopped tomatoes and avocado (or salsa and guacamole) and some corn tortillas.

Sunflower Seed Cheese

Sunflower seeds can really help boost your energy levels. This tasty 'cheese' is great as a dip, an alternative to cream cheese or mayo, or served on a lettuce leaf or cucumber slices.
