    Tastes better than it looks but only 110 calories for this massive plate of spaghetti and cauliflower. Added no salt salt stevia Italian seasoning all purpose seasoning onion powder garlic powder.

    Love eating super low calorie “normal sized” meals so I can save my calories elsewhere.

    Except that shiratake noodles are not spaghetti :) but for volumizing things... great.

    They taste like spaghetti to me with the way I cook them! And I only like a certain brand. Although I never eat regular wheat noodles so maybe I’m biased lol.

    Did you ever try the Palmini, heart of palm, noodles? Excellent. Great taste and texture right out of the can.

    Yes absolutely love those!

    I think Palmini even manufactures hearts of palm in "lasagna sheets". :)

    Being whole food plant eater I'm not scared of carbs. I don't really weigh anything. When I am full I stop eating lol I know fibers won't let me overeat.
    I ate this way for years and I've always been at optimal weight. In the last couple of years I ate too much junk food and I went up to 230lbs. Now I'm back on track and I'm already down to 190lbs.
    I'm pretty much a boring eater. Always the same lol
    A very easy menu. I just don't eat any oil or butter and no dressing or sauces for my veggies.

    Yes!! Just as good as the noodles. I loved them. I think I prefer them slightly above miracle rice. I like the texture better.

    Huge plate only 130 calories. The “miracle” rice is the best out of a few brands I’ve had. Just seasoned with Morton’s seasoned salt and cooked in a pan and it tastes like those seasoned instant rice sides.

    The texture was amazing for these. Not chewy at all. cq47ky33dwdv.jpeg

    I've been eating a plant based diet for a little while now and I love it. I love how I can eat a huge amount of food and it's not that many calories. I haven't been counting calories and my weight isn't going up, even with my giant portions. I love that I discovered eating this way. Just ate a big salad with greens, chick peas, avocado, roasted sweet potato and pumpkin seeds. I'm looking for a good oil free or low-oil dressing that I can throw together - any ideas? I usually make some sort of vinegar and olive oil dressing (with other stuff too) but it's pretty heavy on the oil.

    If you are making your own dressing, can you reduce amount of oil in your recipe? If you are accustomed to the taste, you can try to gradually decrease the amount of oil and see how you like it. I don't use any oil in my salad dressing, it's vinegar based with hot sauce. I like spicy food, so i tend to go on the spicy side. I also make and my own mango chutney when it's mango season, and store it canned for the remainder of the year.

    That's what I would do (reduce the oil). I am fond of olive oil and of vinaigrettes, so prefer not to exclude the oil entirely, but I tend to have much more vinegar/much less oil than the normal ratio for a vinaigrette.

    I also like vinegar (red wine vinegar is great) plus a spicy mustard and some garlic as a dressing.

    For something more Asian-themed, a good basic option is soy sauce + sriracha (or the like) + lime juice, and one can play around with that.

    There are lots of recipes for creamy dressings using cashews as the source of the "cream" too -- I've tried some but tend to not be into creamy dressings most of the time, so haven't experimented much.

    I’ve never used oil in my dressing. I feel like it is a waste of calories. I usually put hot sauce, a good quality balsamic vinegar, lots of spices, truvia, and Dijon mustard on my salads and have no need for oil or dressing.

    (I love 0 calorie Walden farms balsamic though.)

    Great new buns I discovered to enable my volume eating are these 50 calorie buns. Great size and taste. Way better than thinslim foods buns which weren't soft and had a weird texture. These actually have the texture of bread. Whole plate is <160 calories which is the calories of a "snack" for me. Could have two and still be insanely low on the calories. zjm21enczzh3.jpg
