No Carb Wednesday

I do not enjoy cooking. I don't love to come home from work and spend an hour in the kitchen making dinner. I spent the last week at home on my own because my fiancé went to Las Vegas on his stag do (I'm not bitter at all) and I decided that I wasn't going to resort to takeaways and ready meals; I was going to be number 1 healthy chef of the house.

I wanted to do something that was super healthy and that contributed towards my '5-A-Day' because most days I don't even get close to that, but I also wanted to do something that was zero carb and really fast. I decided on chicken and tenderstem broccoli with Nandos sauce (which I could happily eat with every meal!). I quickly fried the chicken (with a 1 calorie dry-spray) and steamed the broccoli in my steamer.

For dessert I made a smoothie in my NutriBullet...
I used strawberries, raspberries, a banana, half a cup of almonds and some 0% fat natural yoghurt with honey. I also chucked some ice cubes in because my fruit had been out on the worktop for an hour. It took me about 3 minutes to make and it was actually really good, I'm thinking about making some frozen lollies when the Summer comes around.

The whole meal came to 480 calories according to MyFitnessPal and it took me literally minutes to throw together. PLEASE share your 'Quick and Healthy' meal ideas in the comments below so that I can try them out.
