Easy Low Calorie, V. Low Carb Recipes

Hi all,

I did pretty good with my eating today and wanted to share some of today’s recipes with you. For breakfast I had what I call “Low Calorie Eggs Royale” which is scrambled eggs with some salmon and a few cherry tomatoes for veggies. Here’s what it looks like and it tasted amazing:

All it is is a small piece of smoked salmon, scrambled eggs and cooked cherry tomatoes. Here are the basic macros:

2 eggs 150 calories , 5g fat, 7g protein

Small stick of butter 72 calories, 8g fat

Semi-skimmed milk 100mls 50 calories, 1.8g fat and 3.6g protein

Small piece of smoked salmon 50 calories, 3g fat and 6g protein

6 cherry tomatoes 6 calories, 2g carbs, 0.5g fibre

Sunflower oil cooking spray for the tomatoes (optional) 15 calories, 1.4g fat

Total Macros: Calories 343 calories, 19.8g fat, 9.6g protein, 2g carbs and 0.5g fibre

And for dinner because I am a very good girl, I had Quorn chicken fillets with a whole broccoli. Filling and delicious!

Here are the macros:

3x Quorn chicken fillets: 150 calories, 2.4g fat, carbs 3g, protein 20g, fibre 8.5g

Vegetable stock: 14 calories, fat 0.3g, carbs 1.4, protein 0.3g

Broccoli: 90 calories, carbs 6g, fibre 7g, protein 4.5g

Sunflower oil cooking spray (optional): 15 calories 1.4g fat

I also add some oregano to the stock.

Total macros: 279 calories, 4.1g fat, 10.4g carbs, protein 24.8g, fibre 15.5g

I hope you liked those recipes and maybe give them a try yourself! These are true staples for me now. I’ve been having Quorn chicken fillets for years because I just find them so delicious. I had eggs royale for the first time at a B&B last summer and thought it was amazing. I really enjoy making my own version. And doesn’t that scrambled egg just look divine?

Thanks for reading!
