Huge bowls of curried vegetable soup with lots of cabbage and a bit of salmon are a standard in my house. I like to keep the soup in the fridge for the week and add the salmon to my portion upon eating. Occasionally
I will add a tablespoon of Greek yogurt to my bowl for cream style
(yogurt must be added 'before' reheating too hot or it will curdle).

vegetable chilli with brown rice. I use alot of quorn chicken. I make vegetable soup every week. vegetable and quorn chicken stirfry. Roasted vegetables are tastier than boiling or steaming them, I use butternut squash, aubergines, sweet potato, whole garlic and onions, I also use alot of tinned tomatoes and spices when I cook.

I oven bake salmon fillets in tinfoil with a splash of soy sauce (very tasty with the roasted vegetables)

ahh i used to eat a lot of the quorn products but now i feel bored of them, i find it all tends to taste very samey if that makes sense. iv never tried the salmon and soy together but that does sound really nice, i usually grill it with a topping of plenty of garlic soit goes crispy, or occasionaly put pesto on it whilst it bakes.

i like greek yoghurt too, but generally dont add it to anything (maybe sometimes put a few slices of banana in there) i find it quite filling, but dont really see the point of puting too much fruit or honey in it because then it feels like its defeating the point of a healthy yoghurt

ill definitely have a goat curried vegetables and roasted ones too, i usually just boil mine haha this is why my diets so boring! thanks guys!

I buy the 'Total 0% Greek Yoghurt', it's fatfree and a miniscule amount of carbs, my favourite treat each day is a couple of tablespoons of this with added berries, banana, apple etc and it helps to keep the sweet cravings away
