I am trying to keep my diet fresh and exciting by trying something new daily.
Cambridge weight plan step 2 means that I basically have one cooked food once a day, with 80g of vegetables from an allowed list. The other meals, consist of milk from a weighed allowance and three Cambridge weight plan products, in my case usually the porridge, yogurt bar and peanut bar.
Experimenting with my evening meal instead of basically eating the same thing every single plan has allowed me to experience some previously untried flavours.
Last night’s dinner was this seriously yummy prawns and egg fried rice with no rice. Yes, instead of rice, I grated cauliflower and used that in place of rice.
Guilt free, low carb and off the scale yummy.
I weighed out 125 g of frozen prawns (half of my protein allowance, the other half being 1 egg) and because I like to marinate food, I added some fresh basil leaves and Thai chilli and left the prawns in the fridge to defrost.
I grated 80g of cauliflower so it looks like rice. You can use a blender if you prefer. I also chopped a little ginger, garlic and one spring onions.
Using one calorie spray oil, I used garlic oil as I like garlic but you can use any oil, I pan fried the prawns, chilli, garlic and ginger, for 1 to 2 minutes until pink.
I then added one beaten egg, allowing the egg to fry a little before scrambling, for about 1 minute.
Lastly, I added the cauliflower rice and a teaspoon of light soy sauce, tossed everything around to mix properly, before adding the spring onions last and stir frying.
Viola. Yummy goodness, served with some basil leaves. You can serve with coriander if you prefer.
Verdict: Off the scale yummyness.
