Quick and Easy Recipes With 5 Ingredients Or Less
Super quick and easy recipes that will keep you on plan
It’s always frustrating when you spend time searching for a recipe that tickles your fancy, only to find an ingredients list as long as your arm. But cooking doesn’t need to be complicated. In fact, some of the most delicious dishes contain the fewest ingredients. Because of this, we have compiled our best quick and simple meals and snacks with few ingredients - 5 or less to be exact. The perfect easy low calorie, low carb meals for when you're feeling lazy.
One base fits all. Lo-Dough bases fit into pretty much all diets as they are low calories, carbs, high in fibre, and sugar-, gluten- and dairy-free. One of the main benefits, however, is the incredible versatility, as they can be used to make hundreds of sweet and savoury dishes including pizza, pastry, cakes, wraps, toasties and more.
Ham & Mushroom Pizza
Ham and Mushroom are two of the nation’s favourite pizza toppings and you can enjoy the whole one to yourself for just 300 calories - so you know this pizza is going to be a winner!
Four Cheese Toastie
When you’re looking for something quick, easy and comforting, toasties are often just the thing. Whether you have yours with one of your favourite cheeses or four like we have here, it will still be low calorie, low carb, and utterly delicious.
South Korea’s fermented cabbage dish 'Kimchee' brings an incredibly complex, sour note to this pizza that works deliciously with the cheese. Kimchee is also a great pre-biotic food which works wonders for gut health. Win-win!
White Chocolate & Raspberry Brownies
White chocolate and raspberry is a classic flavour combination that will not disappoint. These are made deliciously low calorie with our Brownie Mix, meaning you can enjoy a whole brownie for under 100 calories.
Beef, Tomato & Cheese Melt
This recipe takes a matter of minutes to prepare and make and will be gone in seconds! A tasty, low carb lunch combination that is sure to warm your soul.
Southern Style Chicken
Breaded and fried chicken is considered unhealthy due to the high levels of refined carbohydrates and saturated fats. By swapping the unhealthy batter for our Southern Style Coating, you can reduce the calories, carbs and fat while keeping that delicious flavour.
Peanut Butter Glazed Brownies
One for the peanut butter lovers! Chocolate brownies glazed with a topping of peanut butter all for under 100 calories each? You can't go wrong.
