I just wanted to make a thread about British safe foods in particular, and what yummy low-cal things you can find in Tescos, Asda, Morrisons etc!

 

I've mentioned this before, but to those who don't know, you can buy Glorious! Skinnylicous soup with a variety of amazing flavours, only 192 calories for a whole tub, it's amazing and so filling. 

 

I thought it'd be nice to have a separate thread so that you can come for inspiration on what to buy.

 

(Now watch no one reply to this lol)

-Hartley's sugarfree jelly (the orange one is only 5 cal!)

-Cadbury Highlights and Options hot chocolate (39 cal)...both have AMAZING flavours (popcorn, hazelnut, butterscotch, strawberry...), you can get them at Tesco and Asda

-alpro soya unsweetened almond milk (13 cal/100ml), tastes sooo good in coffee and fills me up

-alpro soya plain yoghurt (50 cal/100g), lower in carbs than normal natural yoghurt and tastes better (imo)

 

Can't think of anything else, my brain isn't working today :D

Sainsburys and Tesco: cup soups that are pretty low cal, little bags of baby carrots, promotions on fruit and vegetables, Weight Watchers yogurt, packs of sliced ham, healthy range prawn cocktail sandwiches, Corn Thins, healthy option egg salad/tuna salad, mini cans of tuna in water. Holland and Barrett and Waitrose sell Slim Noodles. Waitrose Soupologie soup (broccoli, spinach, bean) is super low cal. Boots is also good for their 3 cal (or around there) cream soda and other snacks/drinks. Their mint chocolate and strawberry chocolate Slimmers bars are also really good for >100 cals. 

 

Also Pret a Manger egg and spinach pots are amazing, and Abokado salmon and vegetable wraps are 166 cals.

I buy Marigold Swiss Vegetable Bouilllon Powder, £2 for a tub. You can use it to make stock, but it can also be used to make a hot drink (just add hot water). Its really high in salt but if you are craving savory things then its great, its about 12 cals per drink and has a really strong flavour. Not technically food, but still.

 

I also love the hartleys 10 cal (of less) jelly. Currently 6 for £2.50 in tesco.

oxo cubes low salt (15cal each)

 

pretty much all veggies and if they need to be cooked steam them

 

lots of canned soups are less than 200cal each eg chicken noodle, lentil and vegetable

 

weight watchers toffee/vanilla/lemon/apple pie yoghurt, come in packs of 4, 60kcals or less!

 

sometime I eat a can of butter beans (200cal per 400g can in tesco).Sounds gross but super filling and full of protein

- the hartley's jelly pots in the sugarfree version <3

- marks and spencers mix and match stir fry deal makes a really  nice low kcal stir fry 

- the prawns from marks and spencers are really low kcal as well (the ones from sainbury's as well I believe but the quality is not as good)

- marks and spencer fruit shakers!! absolutely adore these <3

- poundland does loads of weightwatchers stuff, and so does lidl 

- poundland also does really cheap nuts, I don't eat nuts very often bc the high amount of calories they have, but I sometimes eat one or two nuts for a snack, and these are really cheap and really good! <3

 

oh I forgot alpro unsweetened almond milk!! very low in kcal, but very very nice <3

and oh so simple oatmeal sachets are lower in calorie than most oatmeals, which can be very nice sometimes. theyre like 133 kcal, but half a sachet is enough to fill you up!!

I second the Cadbury's Highlights and Options hot chocolate sachets! (The fudge Cadbury's one and the salted caramel, orange chocolate and praline Options ones are my favourites)
- Crosse & Blackwell vegetable soup
- Heinz minestrone and vegetable soups
- ASDA Chosen By You Macaroni (the 50p one, it's only 156cals per 100g!!)
- Quaker Oats porridge sachets (100cals!)
- The Waitrose own brand Cuppa Soups (59cals-ish I think depending on the flavour)
- Heinz chicken noodle soup (a favourite before I became vegetarian)
- Hartley's <10cal jelly

Can you tell I like soup hahaha

Omg I've been waiting for this my whole life 😁

Waitrose do calorie counted soup sachets in the soup section - my fave is the asparagus one. 59 cals per sachet and you can fill up an entire bowl as it thickens up. Chicken and noodle is only 48 but I haven't tried that one yet!!
For a takeout lunch, Waitrose also do a king prawn spicy noodle salad thing which is only 187 for a very filling pot!
Boots Moroccan couscous chicken salad is divine too. Not to mention sugar free jelly and also alpro soya custard!!! It's so much nicer than real custard and much much healthier :)
