Mock 'Kebab'

We really fancied a kebab on Sunday night but we didn't fancy all of the calories!
So the below is our makeshift kebab which we served with a pitta bread and some garlic mayo.
As usual you can have mountains of veg if you wish, cabbage, cucumbers, onions and tomatoes.
The chips were made in the airfryer and  cant stress enough how good these are considering they are made with just 1 tsp of oil!
For the chicken the marinade was left on for an hour (when we went out for a walk) this was made by mixing 1 tbsp olive oil, 2 tbsp lemon juice, 2 crushed garlic cloves, 1 tsp allspice and 1 tsp dried oregano.
Once marinaded this was fried with 2 sprays of olive oil in a griddle pan on a medium heat until cooked and it was delicious!

Balanced dinner!

This meal was a good balance of tasty and healthy.
  • A salmon fillet fried in a spray of olive oil.
  • Boiled broccoli (a little over done!) and asparagus.
  • 200g of airfried new jersey royal potatoes (0.5 tsp olive oil used)
  • pickled cucumber to cut through the olive oil used in the dish and add a nice sharp flavour
Importantly this dinner was delicious and fairly low fat and low calorie (<500)

A well Balanced Lunch

This is my lunch from yesterday, Yummy and really fairly low in calories
Here's how to make it - it's very simple
Calories - I used MyFitnessPal and the backs of packets, etc to get a rough figure of 316 Calories which is pretty good value, you have your protein, carbs and a serving of veg.
5g Schwartz Grill Mates Cajun Marinade (you can use any other spice mix you like)
1/2 Tsp Olive Oil
I used a fairly big chicken breast and split it between my boyfriend and I, it was approx. 90g each
50g Wholewheat Pasta
40g Tender stem or ordinary broccoli (tender stem is good for dipping)

WHAT!! Colmans burger sauce continued!

I went to Tesco to stock up on 'The Sauce', and stock up I did.
Tonight we ran our of our previous sauce and I reached to the cupboard for one of the new ones, at first I thought Oops, I've bought the wrong sauce.. But no, there is more than one variation of the sauce. - it says flavour 2.
I really don't know what this is all about, but

Rating: 10/10

Phileas Fogg Campaign

..And the campgain begins. 56 days left to complete some activities


I have only tried on flavour so far, as per my previous post I enjoyed it very much and I am really looking forward to trying the others, but I am trying to pace myself for obvious reasons!

I have purchased some salsa for the other 2 that I received as I don't feel it's necessary but I reckon it will compliment the flavours so I will be able to give an opinion on flavours with and without the accompaniment.

The next flavour I want to try is Louisiana sweet & Smokey BBQ which sounds right up my street. 

Watch this space for reviews of Louisiana sweet & Smokey BBQ and Smoky Chorizo Spice & Red Pepper flavours.

I would have loved to try Cool Sour Cream & Onion too, but I may have to grab these next time I go food shopping!
