"You can have the results you say you want, or you can have all the reasons in the world why you can’t have them. But you can’t have both. Reasons or results. You get to choose."

My Favourite Dinner

The way I work my food is to have a range of options for breakfast, lunch and dinner that I choose from.  I am happy to add new things to my rotation, but I am a creature of habit so tend to stick to the same few.  I know the points values for each, and have them all written in a notebook.  If I have extra points to use I usually just increase the protein component.


I thought I would share one of my all time favourites.  It is 5 points in Australian/UK Weight Watchers.  You can substitute chicken for the beef which tastes fabulous also.


Thai Beef and Mango Salad

POINTS=5 (Australian/UK WW)

makes 1 serve

120gm beef fillet steak
40gm dry pad thai noodles
1/2 cup bean sprouts, trimmed
1/2 cup chinese cabbage, thinly sliced
1 small carrot coarsely grated
1/2 small cucumber cut into straws
1/2 small mango sliced
2 tbs mint, chopped
2 tbs coriander, chopped
1 tbs lime juice
1 tbs fish sauce
3 tsp sweet chilli sauce

1. Heat a non stick frying pan coated with cookin spray to medium high.  Cook steak for 3 minutes on each side or until cooked the way you like it.  Remove from pan and stand for 5 minutes.
2. Cook noodles according to instructions on the packet, then drain
3. Thinly slice steak.  Combine in a bowl with noodles and remaining ingredients.
