I love to keep a variety of low-calorie sprays in my kitchen cupboard and now with such a wide range available the possibilities are limitless. For this Beef & Mushroom Stroganoff I would use a mixture of the garlic infused and rapeseed.
A note to the wise!
When using a low calorie spray you will soon find that a lower heat is best on your pan, otherwise they tend to burn. Alternatively, with a lot of recipes that require oil, or a low calorie spray you could try a simple drop of water, it saves the pan issue as well as keeping the oils & fats at bay.
Our Ultimate Slimming Tips!
Are you wondering how on earth you can lose 4,5 or even 6 pounds in just one week?
Seems an impossible challenge, listen in because we know (we’ve done it ourselves) you can lose that and even more in just one week!
Slimming Tip 1 – Don’t go hungry –
If you are hungry you need to eat. Depriving your body of food will just see you miserable and maybe even grabbing the high fat, high sugar foods instead. And that’s really not going to help.
Slimming Tip 2 – Fill up on Super Slimming Foods –
Now no food has the power to actually slim you down, but the foods with the least calories for the most amount of filling power will cut your calorie intake without you even realising.
These foods what to take priory over other foods, by filling your plate with at least 1/3 of the Super Slimming Foods will see the lbs literally drop off.
Slimming Tip 3 – Plan Plan Plan –
Fail to plan is planning to fail. Make a solid plan not only for the foods and meal you are going to enjoy but also what might get in your way. If you know you have a night out, that’s fine, just plan… What food will you order? What drinks will you order? And stick to your plan for amazing weight losses.

Pre heat your oven to 200C or Gas mark 6
Cut the squash in half length ways, take the top stem off scoop out the seeds, I use an ice cream scoop works great! Score in a criss-cross pattern over the flesh of each one.
Mix together the garlic, lemon juice, chilli flakes, thyme and marjoram, brush this mixture over the top of the flesh.
Place the squash in a baking tray, flesh side up and bake for approximately 30 minutes, or until the flesh is tender.
Whilst the squashes are in the oven prepare the stuffing.
Put the courgette, red pepper, leeks into a separate bowl and spray with low calorie cooking spray. Season and bake for 20-25 minutes or until tender. Add the cherry tomatoes and cook for a further 10 minutes.
Mix the breadcrumbs, flat leaf parsley and grated Pecorino together.
Arrange the roasted vegetables in the squash halves, then scatter with the breadcrumb mixture, bake for a further 10 minutes until golden. Garnish with a little flat leaf parsley. Enjoy
