Low Calorie Meal Ideas

Lately I eat mostly Lean Cuisines and Smart One's because figuring out the calories I end up comsuming is pretty midless. But, I don't want to grow bored with the food I am eating and be tempted to go crazy and eat everything one day. Does anyone know of any great websites with recipies for low calorie lunches and dinners. If the website even listed the calories that would be great. Thanks for the help.

I don't know any websites but I have a tip. Usually I have a pizza craving at least once a week and I have been eating the pizzas by South Beach Diet. They have a nice assortment and are low calorie. They are also the most tasty pizzas of that size (still surprisingly low calorie) that I have found:o)

Calorie King has recipies -- when you look up an item (oatmeal, for example) there are recipies using that ingredient that pop up on the right side. Link below.

Another good one is Three Fat Chicks on a Diet. They list WW points, calories, portion sizes and nutrition info. Link below.

I use it ALL the time! I usually search for the main meat and then see the options I have to make different things! I must admit, I got bored quickly with the Lean Cuisines ... there are only so many of them you can eat! I also bought a Cooking Light : Low Calorie and Low Fat cookbook. The ideas in there are awesome and you can always find ways to cut down the calories by not using so much cheese or oil. I don't cook with butter anymore and you get use to it quick!

Good LUCK!

sodium intake

I don't usually do frozen meals b/c of the sodium. Just watch your sodium intake, so you don't over do it.

Fresh or frozen veggies are my staple for feeling full on low calories.

I just dump a bag of stir-fry mix in a pan and maybe add some sauce mixed with water or a low-calorie soup to simmer it in (rather than fry in oil). Takes like 10 minutes to heat up and I've got a HUGE bowl of veggies for usually around 200 calories.
