Low-calorie meal ideas for pre-party snacking
CalorieKing.com.au dietitian Boris Kazakov suggests the following low-calorie ideas, which are perfect for a pre-party meal or to help your recovery the day after.
Low-fat pizza– Spread pita bread with tomato-based pasta sauce and top with grated reduced-fat cheese and assorted chopped mixed veggies such as capsicum, onion and tomato. Sprinkle with dried oregano. Place under the grill until the cheese starts to bubble.
Healthy beef burger – Fry an extra-lean beef patty in a non-stick pan sprayed with olive oil spray and toast a burger bun. Place the patty in the bun and top with a slice of reduced-fat cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion and tomato sauce.
Low-fat hot dog – Put a grilled low-fat chicken sausage in a bun and top with mustard and/or tomato sauce, grated reduced-fat cheese, and sauerkraut.
BLT– Heat any brand of low-fat or turkey bacon in the microwave for 30 seconds. Sandwich between two slices of toasted bread, with lettuce, tomato and a squirt of low-fat mayonnaise.
Hawaiian bagel pizza – Cut a large plain bagel in half. Top with low-fat deli ham, grated reduced-fat cheese and crushed pineapple. Place under the grill until the cheese starts to bubble.
