Hello! :smiley:
Anyone can help me with low calories recipes?
I really want to consume only 1200 calories per day! If you know some vegetarian recipes it's a plus! :smile:

Thank you so much :smiley:

    I eat almost a vegetarian/vegan lifestyle (I'm pescatarian because I eat tuna a few times a month). I eat on average of 1250 calories a day.

    My favorites are:

    Chicken boca burgers (veggie burger) on Sandwich thin, lettuce, tomato, onions & laughing cow cheese (300-400 cal depending on what you put on it)
    Spicy Chicken boca Salad - grilled spicy chicken boca cut up on top of salad mix w/bolthouse dressing (300-500 cal depending on what you put in your salad i.e croutons avocado etc)
    Pizza - Flat Out pizza crust, artichoke harts, onions cheese (300 cal)
    Eggs w/bagel thins
    Gardin products - Veggie meats

    hope this helps!

    Thank you so much! I'm not vegetarian, but I really want to become one, so I will surely try this ones :)

    I usually eat most days 11am brunch and 5pm dinner with no snacks after 5pm. It seems to help me not snack later at night plus I don't like going to bed on a full stomach.

    Most of the time 2 meals and 1 snack but occasionally I'll have 3 meals.

    I'm super flexible and I even cycle my calories, one day I eat 1000 calories so one day I can eat 1500 (my eventual maintenance). But my average daily is 1250.

    oh yeah no I couldn't eat 5 meals a day:). My meals are anywhere from 300-500 calories per meal depending on if I do 2 or 3 meals and that leaves room for 1 or 2 snacks.

    As advised above Pinterest and reddit has 1200 calorie ideas.

    I'm on 1300 a day and meat/dairy free. My favourite meals are spaghetti bolognese made with Quorn mince and with courgetti instead of spaghetti; Quorn chilli with lettuce leaves instead of taco shells; any kind of veg curry with no rice; chickpea tagine; veggie sausage casserole... those are my favourites but I'm always trying out new things too. My diary is open if you want to add me :)

    Basically if you load up on vegetables then you won't get too hungry. Not sure if you're bothered about macros but I eat egg whites to keep my protein levels up, they have way fewer calories than whole eggs. There are a lot of different ways you can cook them.

    @EauRouge1 Nice thank you! :D
    Yeah I realized that the meat we buy at the market it's really bad for us, and of course have a lot of calories. I wanted to eat more vegetables, just didn't know any recipes x) I will check your diary than :)
