    Pan seared diver scallops and wild Red Snapper. 😋 (Herbs de Provence from my family’s home in France on scallops, fish masala I bought back from Delhi..)

    This is what I had tonight. Taco Casserole that I got from the Yummly app. My wife made it. It was very good. I like sour cream,...but I’ve learned to use it very sparingly to add just enough for taste.

    Give a 0% fat Greek Yoghurt a go (or Icelandic Skyr) as a sour cream substitute. I can’t even remember the last time I used actual sour cream, either in cooking or as a plating add on. You may find it takes a time or two to really get used to the very slight difference, but I honestly can’t tell anymore and it saves a whole bunch of calories!

    Okay, I'll play. This was last night (tonight's was not photogenic):

    qkkf9yq4ybpg.jpg

    It's a one-bowl main dish of cooked edamame/soy fettuchine (56g dry wt.), sauteed Cousa squash (a light green summer squash, 366g of it), and green peas (frozen, 89g), with a dressing of gochujang chile paste, rice vinegar, and soy sauce, with raw finely-chopped onion (25g) stirred in before serving. It had 402 calories, 33g protein, and 21g fiber. I mostly don't do recipes or plan much; I just make stuff on the spur of the moment.

    I made it because I needed a good chunk of protein to round out the day (and I'm vegetarian), and I like to eat lots and lots of veggies. I'd already gotten enough fats in earlier (a macro I'm often short on), so I wasn't really thinking about those. I like a filling dinner.

    I'm in maintenance, eating on this day a couple hundred calories or so under maintenance (I calorie bank) at 2,066 calories for the day, which included 266 exercise calories.

    This looks amazing!

    have you tried swapping nonfat Greek yogurt for sour cream? I never thought I'd be able to do it, but I love it, now! (I can't eat it plain, but as a sour cream substitute, it's perfect!) The brand I use is only 17 calories for 2T!

    Ropa Vieja tacos.

    Something that turned out incredibly tasty, much to my surprise! I’m calling it ‘Back of the Fridge Fajita’ 😂

    Literally some odds and ends of courgette, quarter of an onion that I’d shoved in a plastic bag earlier in the week, a few slightly wrinkly baby plum tomatoes, the last few chestnut mushrooms in a pack, quarter of a slightly squidgy yellow pepper (squidgy bits cut off). All bunged in an enamel pie plate with salt, pepper and 10 sprays of Fry Light Chilli Oil. Roasted for 20 mins, half a dozen Fry’s vegan chicken style strips thrown on top in the last eight minutes. Skinni Wrap with a splodge of Skyr and a generous dribble of Mango Habanero Chilli sauce and a few slightly brown salad leaves. Messy but sooo good!

    I was feeling sorry for myself when I started cooking it (been a long day, with a fair amount of stress) and I’d already cooked family dinner and cleaned up so had little enthusiasm for my own dinner. Now, though, I feel great! 😊

    Better than Noodles, Lean Ground Beef, Fermented Cabbage and Beets, Plain Greek Yogurt

    Beautiful, delicious and satisfying!

    I actually like Greek Yogurt. I’ve just never really gave it any thought as to a sour cream substitute.

    Not the prettiest photo- but it was tasty! I love rosemary on everything. Maybe it’s just the fragrance...

    Roasted cauliflower with rosemary and a pinch of turmeric../ Chicken thigh with rosemary & Rajasthan chili pepper../ Steamed rainbow chard stems... 😋

    Tonight it's the same squash casserole as in my first post back on September 6 except I've added pimentos to the recipe for a little more color and flavor. Along with that, I've got 2 Bremer Cheese Lasagna Rolls (2) from Aldi with some marinara sauce and grated parmesan, and again about 5 oz. of buttered brussels sprouts. Total of 632 calories, which fits well within my daily calorie goal for the evening meal.

    Not dinner because my dinners are usually boring (plain sandwiches or oatmeal), but I had leftovers from yesterday's lunch for breakfast today. Fish, eggplant and baby zucchini, lentils, tomatoes, cucumbers, and biscuits. A little under 600 calories.

    @suzyjmcd2 good idea! No pic but had Nigella’s Express chilli tonight and subbed out rice for swoodles - shredded swede. Next time I’ll try with Greek yogurt!
