So I’m trying new things at the moment and one of these things are low calorie meals. My partner follows a low calories diet, he uses MyFitnessPal and he’s doing quite well which is why I’m going to start making more low calorie dinners. Starting with this very yummy low calorie vegetable pie!
One of the things I will say, when it comes to low calorie meals I find that the best meals are vegetarian or vegan meals as meat most of the time contains a lot of calories which isn’t great when you’re counting them!
Low Calorie Vegetable Pie Recipe
So this is one of my first low calorie dinners, I made it towards the end of the year as it’s a nice winter dinner, really warms the soul and tastes amazing at the same time. It’s full of goodness, vegetables and isn’t going to make you consume calories you don’t need.
One of the great things I love about this pie when it comes to eating healthier, a portion of this contains your 5 a day that is recommended, that’s because it’s packed full of yummy vegetables! If you’re not satisfied you can always have a fruit salad for dessert and really top up!
This low calories vegetable pie recipe is super easy to make, I’m not a fan of recipes that take hours to make or have a thousand ingredients and steps because no one has time for that. When you’re calorie counting you don’t want to be making a meal for hours!
