    I'm trying a huuuge diet at the moment, so I've been eating little but salads the last few days. Unsurprisingly, this gets very boring, very fast. So can anyone recommend me what they think is the best tasting very healthy, very low fat meal? I'll probably try most of the ones I like the sound of and report back

    hmmm but the bread base itself of pizza is quite carb-y, and then cheese isn't fantastic either!

    You need protein and carbs for a healthy diet. Replace ordinary cheese with low fat :yep:

    Sorry but this is one of those moments where I just have to say:

    "Your dad on toast!" :awesome:

    But on a serious matter, try Quorn OP. Low in fat and high in protein, its win-win!

    Home-made veggie curry.

    Obviously the curry paste has a fair bit of oil in it, but it's not like you use that much of it. Then you can put in loads of whatever vegetables you like (carrots, peppers, courgettes, aubergine, brocolli), and some chickpeas to give it some protein (or of course you could use a low fat meat like chicken, but veg is cheaper), and a tin of chopped tomatoes.

    Get a few of your 5 a day, not much fat, and it's yummy.

    (This is my plan for when term starts again, anyway! Probably be eating it a couple of times a week.)

    Grilled chicken breast or salmon filet, with lots of veg and sweet potato (much lower fat than regular potato).

    Stir fries w/ chicken (lean, no skin) and thin noodles and/or rice, lots of veg again, soy sauce.

    Egg white omelettes.

    Whoever suggested low fat cheese - don't bother, it's rubbish, if you are a cheese fan try to stick to cottage or lighter ones such as feta.

    Soup, soup, soup! So healthy and filling, and easy to make too.

    Good luck!

    Stir fry. As long as you don't put too much oil in it, obviously.

    Rice with prawns, chicken or turkey. Just add a lot of vegetables in the mix and a low-calorie sauce. I have mushrooms, spring onions and baby corn in mine.
