Quick n healthy omelette
1 egg plus 2 egg whites, salt and pepper to taste and a sprinkling of Chipotle seasoning (Woolies), lightly beaten. Pour in small non-stick pan on a medium heat. Turn over once set at bottom. And that is it!
Serve in a wrap with lots of lettuce and a dash of mayo, Tabasco or sriracha!
PS: If you dont have Chipotle seasoning, add a sprinkling of cayenne pepper and smoked paprika!
Serves 4 – 2 Prot, ½ Veg (without coleslaw and veggies to serve), ½ Fat (excluding CC from wraps(s)) per serving
400g beef cubes
100g chopped onions
10ml olive oil
½ tsp each – crushed garlic, ginger and chilies
A sprinkling of Chinese 5-spice
1tsp lime juice
Fry onions, garlic, ginger and chilies in olive oil until onions are soft. Add beef cubes, increase heat and fry for a few minutes to seal. Add rest of spices. Cook on very slow heat (you can use your slow cooker) until beef is very tender and easy to ‘shred’ with a fork. Top up with a little bit of water during the cooking process if needed.
Serve on a bed of lettuce (so that it doesn’t make the wrap too ‘soggy’) with a good dollop of Sweet Chili Sauce from allowance.
To serve: WL Wraps (1 = 1 CC), shredded cabbage/coleslaw mix, chopped spring onions, lettuce and Sweet Chili Sauce (Misc allowance)
Another lunch! Another wrap! 🙂
This time, after a tip from my friend Lucy-Ray – I decided to add tuna to one of my favourite sides – tzatziki! I love the fresh combination of cucumber, mint and yogurt. And tzatziki is very versatile! Great as a side to braaied (it is a South African thing!) chicken, pork or beef. Haven’t combined it with fish before, so this was one of those experimental meals! LOL! And I think it was pretty successful! 🙂
Okay, first tzatziki:
1/2 grated cucumber, sprinkled with salt and left for about 30 – 60 minutes to get rid of the extra moisture. I always leave it in a coriander to strain. Squeeze out any excess water, make sure to get it all out – with your hands is actually the easiest, or press it between 2 sideplates.
Next stir in about 100ml plain fat free yogurt, 1 tablespoon of grated onion, 1 finely crushed garlic clove, a small handful of finely chopped mint (dried mint works well), black pepper and my secret ingredient – a sprinkling of Aromat 🙂
Drain 1 tin of tuna (in brine). It is very important to make sure all water is drained, otherwise the mixture gets very soggy. Mix the tuna and tzatziki together – I added a few springs of finely chopped dill, and some salad onions.
And voila! Leave in the fridge for a few hours for the flavours to mix. I had it with the Weigh-Less Sundried tomato wraps, with some cherry tomatoes and lettuce.
Again, any filling that works well as a wrap filling can be served in pitas, on whole wheat bread or just add a handful of lettuce leaves, and you have a lovely, fresh and filling salad.
Fresh and yummy!
I love a good wrap! Especially for lunch 🙂
When packing my lunch for work, I very seldom just throw everything together – I am not a fan of mushy, soggy food. Okay, few people are! 😛
Today, for example – I packed the wraps seperately, and the chicken mix, and the salad stuff (lettuce, cucumber strips, and chopped peppadews) also in a seperate divided container.
Yes, maybe a bit of a mission – but worth it, believe me! 🙂
This was the chicken curry (fake Coronation??) mix:
90g cooked chicken, chopped
1 small Granny Smit apple, chopped
2 small salad onions, chopped
30ml low fat mayo
1/2 teaspoon curry powder (mild)
Salt and pepper to taste
Prepare this the night before – for the flavours to develop 🙂
Quick and easy!
Served with 2 Weigh-Less Sundried Tomato wraps! Yummy! 😀
Also works as a salad, in pitas and on whole wheat bread 🙂
