    Odd one. I cooked a carrot and sweet potato soup with coconut milk, ginger, lots of chilli peppers and cashew nuts yesterday with a white crusty roll. Then I realized that it's kind of lacking fat and protein. Then I ate it, enjoyed it, and felt very full at 550kcal. Had a second serving today, and the same happened again. Last portion will be tomorrow <3

    My volumized oatmeal...

    I love doing this trick. I use a small 100 calorie pack of oatmeal. Microwave first for one minute. This is how much it would be without the volumizing trick I do. This is a huge 6c soup bowl, way bigger than a standard sized bowl,

    Make sure you use a big enough bowl so it doesn’t explode. Microwave for 3 more minutes after completely cooled (I stick in freezer).

    Then add 1 teas xanthum gum, mix and put in the freezer again. I also add cinnamon, trivia and skinny mixes sugar free brown sugar cinnamon syrup.

    Let it thicken and BAM hugeeeee bow, of <120 calorie oatmeal! You can even make bigger by adding more and microwaving more lol.

    Maybe I am missing something but how is this volume?
    The mug is 6 cup, I see its at most 1/3 full so 2cup. Thats volume? Not too me.... but calories are low and gonna be a sweet gooie thing by the end so its all good :)

    Man... I miss @pinggolfer96 and his bath tub sized salads :)

    Just a way to make regular oatmeal which would be super low volume like triple the volume it usually is. It actually is like 3c and you can even make it bigger by doing it again or adding more oats. So instead of a small half cup of oatmeal you get 3-4c for one small 100 cal packet. Just the base thing I do then I add other stuff or double the recipe for a gigantic bowl.

    Ahhh I see... well this is the reason I am not an oatmeal eater haha.

    Have a look at the flat outs wraps as those are easy to find.

    Yes, I like the FlatOut wraps too. Thanks.

    Tumaros are the #1 lowest calorie for size wrap out there with the best flavors (everything bagel, pumpernickel, sourdough, rye) My absolute favorite!

    I forgot about these & just bought the Honey Wheat & White varieties. Today I used the white & put Freshy Pebbles cashew butter & a little bit of off brand Fruity Pebbles on.

    I think most of the spreads are around 170-180.

    Is this a 6x3 pan? That is a small cake for almost 500 calories!

    I think there could be a way to make it lower calorie for that amount of volume. I like the angel food protein cakes that are the size of a dinner plate for only 200 calories.

    Big difference. The angel food cake is nothing but egg whites. Quick and easy protein bomb.

    This is an actual cake and to be enjoyed while not being loaded with calories. You can have a 1/4 of the cake with your coffee in the morning, or serve your guests. You are not serving angel food cake to your guests.
    Also my apologies for not making this in a huge tub with zero calories and 100g protein :)
    This is as big as the cheesecake.

    Actually... considering the calories in a normal cake that size might double to triple that.. 500 is awesome!

    Should I post another one like this but no baking will be required OR should I post something savoury now?
