You could meal prep this for a week.  Takes a long time to make, but worth it.  It's 274 for 2 cups, but you could easily cut the serving to 1 cup or less.  I'd lose the oil and use water instead, oil is wasted calories.  Vegan, so that means vegetarian as well.

This is one of my favourite meals, it's a bit plain but you can add carrots or garlic, whatever you like


100g quorn pieces (99) fried in a low cal spray (20)

100g steamed broccoli (34)

Single-serving of vegetarian instant gravy (17)


170 kcals total, it's quite a large portion of food too

A pot of super thick, super filling potato soup. Whole pot is 185kcal, the servings depend on how much water you add.

One small 130g potato - 100kcal
Half a small onion (25g) = 10kcal
3g either butter or olive oil - 25kcal (or you can use cooking spray for much less kcal.)
1/2 garlic clove, parsley, rosemary, paprika, pepper, salt and any other spice you want - ca. 6kcal if you use a pinch of each
150ml non-fat milk (or even almond milk for less cals) - 54

Cut the potato. If you want a smooth soup, cut into tiny pieces. If you prefer chunks, leave some pieces bigger. In a pot, sautee the spices, onion and garlic in the oil. Add the potatoes and immediately afterwards add water, enough to cover them. Leave them to simmer for awhile and stir occasionally. When half the water has evaporated, add the milk and stir thorouhgly. Wait until it starts simmering again, stir more and remove from the stove. Serve!

Another dinner is my sweet, desserty 100-calorie cauflilower porridge (it will be a bit more if you include some toppings like fruit or nuts, but it usually ends up being under 200). Method is long, so I'll put it in spoiler :) 


The porridge itself is under 100kcal, so if you could literally fit an entire small banana in there and still be under your limit :) and the possibilities are endless!

Zoodles are nice too. One long, large courgette is 300g = 51kcal and a single one makes a ton of zoodles, so personally i like using only 1/2. Sautee it for 3 minutes w/ garlic, pepper, paprika and some red capsicum or tomato, set aside, make a low-cal sauce from 150g canned tomato, spices, half a carrot and half an onion (this will end up around 45kcal) and top your zoodles. Bam, meal for ca. 120kcal at most! And if you reduce the cauliflower porridge from above to 2/3 of the recipe, you can have both dishes, still for under 200kcal as main course and dessert!

Last resort, cooked veggetables. Those frozen veggie packs in the freezer section of the stores tend to have between 20 and 35kcal for 100g. I usually cook 200g of them (56) in tbsp of soy sauce (8), 50g tomato paste (~13), loads of spices and garlic (i tend to count as ~6cal) and 2ml of olive oil (17). Sometimes I add corn, or peas or onion, if the prepackagaed veggies mix doesn't already contain those. The meal described here is 100kcal so it leaves enough room for a slice of bread too, in case you're craving bread - it really makes the veg more filling somehow.

Canned boiled potatoes (80 cal), red lentils (90cal) and butternut squash :)

Sweet potato (half of it, boiled is about 90cal if you take a small one) , chickpeas and spinach

I love quinoa crust pizza, with tomato and veggies, if you use the whole bag of quinoa you have 300 cals but you can make two pizzas out of a bag so ... :)


Those are vegans as I really don't remember what I used to eat before thanks to memory loss

ratatouille is super filling and low cal if you make it yourself

homemade soup


a slim bagel/bread slice (idk what brand you have where you live but where I am they're like 130kcal) and a shitload of mushrooms or a poached egg

an egg white omelette with a shit ton of mushrooms and spinach and soy sauce 

wholegrain spaghetti with tomato pasatta (just blended up tomatos.. but you can add dried herbs, salt, pepper, chilli flakes etc on top)

cauli rice, grated carrot, brocolli and tofu stir fry (just fry it in veggie stock and use soy sauce)

lettuce wraps with salsa, tofu etc 

i dont count cals strictly but you get the idea  :D

Vegetable puree (110 cal/cup)

Soup (less than 100 cal/cup)

Grilled fish (123 cal/100 gr)

Salad (calories depend on what you add to it)

Omelette - one egg (156 cal)

Low-fat yogurt (45 cal)



This is what I usually have for dinner - I know that some of these arent vegan, but you can try them by using vegan ingredients instead!

I’ve been eating 1/2 bag of microwaveable cauliflower rice (60 calories) with sliced mushrooms, carrots and onions. Usually about 3/4 cup of all the veg together. I sauté the veggies with a little non fat cooking spray and add a little H2O to the pan to keep the veg from not sticking. I’m guessing the veggies are probably 75 calories so I’m thinking my all in total is about 135. Sometimes I add a teaspoon of low sodium soy sauce and that mimicks fried rice for me.

depends on whether you have a small stomach or not, but a packet of plain oats (100) and a banana (100) or tiny apple (100) is good for me. cup of nonfat plain Greek yogurt (130) with fruit (ranges from 50cal to 80). 1 1/4 cup special k red berry (140) with cup of unsweetened almond milk (15). chicken won-ton soup (125), chicken noodle soup (150), vegetable beef soup which is very filling (200). i make a 190cal sandwich: 130cal for two slices of bread, 60cal for turkey or honey ham, then pickles, mustard, lettuce are all 0cal, i suggest you toast the sandwich. cream of wheat packets are also 100 cal.

Low cal vegetarian meals.. I got your back. lol, these are my go to.


I love stir fry with celery, carrot and eggs. I use small amounts of water instead of oil to cut cals. plus if you want more volume in the meal you can probably take out 1 egg yolk to cut cals, plus another whole egg. Garlic and soy sauce is good with this for flavour.


A tin of diced tomatoes is about 100 cals so pan fry (again no oil), with other low cal veg like carrot, mushrooms, zucchini or whatever you like. I like to add either lite cottage cheese or olives to mine but for only 200cals I'm not sure you could fit that in.

I also like a salad with a small tin of tune. Just use lots of lettuce and a few other low cal salad veg, no dressing.

This one isn't as filling as the other things I listed though.
