Chinese Pepper Steak with Wholewheat Noodles


This is beautifully quick & easy to throw together, it literally takes minutes making it a great contender for a mid week dinner. I sometimes eat different meals from my family due to my fitness and protein consumption goals and I made this just for one, you can double it up if you need to serve more people. I used what I had available to me which is realistic for us all so if you’re steak is slightly larger, smaller or a different cut of meat just adjust your macros or Smartpoints accordingly. I always cut my meat against the grain before cooking it and it makes for a much more tender softer piece of meat, trust me it makes all the difference. To cut against the grain simply look for the grain (natural lines across your steak) and cut it in strips going in the opposite direction. Macros 589Cal P43 C66 F17 Smartpoints 13. Continue reading

Glorious Spicy Lean Taco Fries


Glorious Spicy Lean Taco Fries, all the flavour of this takeaway favourite without any need to wait until cheat day to indulge in this healthy version. I’ve made this recipe before (it’s here on the blog somewhere but this is an updated improved version) and had made the fries myself with potato rather than sweet potato and you can most certainly make the fries yourself using plain potato or sweet potato but these strong root frozen sweet potato fries are so so handy and I can never get my home-made sweet potato fries that divinely crispy. This recipe serves four and the taco mince mixture freezes well once cooled if you’re doing meal prep, just use 130 g of the frozen fries per serving as required. This is quite spicy well for my taste anyway, if you want it less spicy just dial down the amount of the spices you put in, if you like it hot hot hot use hot chilli powder instead of mild.
