Our starter was ricotta with asparagus, pea and broad bean tart. You could use courgette too. All those wonderful flavours packed into just 250 calories!
We enjoyed it so much, we couldn't resist having it again. Only this time we cooked the pastry without 'weighting' it down. It was much lighter and we preferred the texture.
If you are stuck for time, you could always use a ready made tart case, although the calories will probably be higher. You have more control over the calories when you are in charge of the ingredients.
Over the weekend we managed a few tasks in the garden. Some heavy digging burned quite a few calories, which we enjoyed spending! If you ever lack the motivation to go for a walk, do a bit in the garden etc, try thinking how much more you could EAT if you did.
****REMEMBER: We all have a calorie allowance - do you know yours?
We began our weight loss journey in January 2011 - and began our blog in June 2011. Here's a link to the first post. (here's the link).
We like to post our main meals to show you what CAN be eaten. You won’t find us posting every last morsel though – but we hope this gives you an idea of how far calories can go! I'm currently going through the photographs and replacing them with more website friendly versions which will allow the blog to load quickly.
