Simple Low Calorie Snack Ideas
For a start romaine gem lettuce is a must for me.
The amount of yummy things you can do with a salad is amazing.
1) Tuna niscoise. Grab a small plate, add 2 large leaves of gem lettuce, and sprinkle half a tin of tuna
down them. Add a boiled egg split in half. Red onion chopped into circles, couple of new baby
potatoes if you like. Add a low calorie dressing doesn't really matter which one they all taste good!
French dressing probably more appropriate. Yummy..Gobble.
Alter it by grilling some sea bass or mackerel add yellow peppers/ red peppers /sweetcorn.
2) Poached egg salad. Grab some olives, capers beetroot and tomatoes and cut them up on the gem
lettuce. Poach an egg and place on top add some olive oil. Voila delightful
3) Tomatoes, cucumber, onion, peas and lemon on shredded gem lettuce. Such a lovely Indian salad.

salads now, not pizza.

pasta. 100% flavour 0% complex carbs.(onions, garlic, plum tomatoes, pea and carrots and tuna is
7) ommlette. Eggs are high protein and you can add onions, peppers, tomatoes, capers, olives,
cheese the list is probably endles. As you can tell I'm a fan!
A cereal sized bowl full of either of these will max 350 calories at most.
