With everyone concerned about their waist line these days, I have developed a few low calorie meals that you can all enjoy, without any guilt or worry about adding unnecessary kilo’s 🙂
Cucumber Noodles – Low Calorie Meal
400g Cucumber, 1 average size – @ 10 cal per 100g = 40 cals
200g of Eggplant/Aubergine – @ 20 cal per 100g = 40 cals
100g Red Capsicum/Bell pepper – @32 cal per 100g = 32 cals
5 cherry tomatoes – @ 5 cals per tomato = 25 cals
2 spring onions – @ 10 cals per onion = 20 cals
