I'm doing a 1500 calorie diet and I am running out of ideas as to what to eat. Does anyone have suggestions that would be low in calorie meal ideas...I'm getting sick of lettuce Sad

I have a bunch of recipes. Fish tacos are good...instead of a tortilla you can have the fish and salsa over 1/2 to 1/4 cup of brown rice. I like my fish with a little bit of some type of fruit salsa (mango/peach...or I take grapefruit and add some chili powder and diced jalepeno.) Ground chicken/turkey breast burgers are also good. Just eat 1/2 the bun. I even put 1tbs of reduced fat mayo on it.

Mostly I've just been trying to keep my meals to 250 to 300 calories each. I make my main dish account for about 200ish calories, then I fill the rest in with veggies...a salad, or steamed broccoli or spinach.

Hope this gives you a few ideas. Let us know what you come up with

vegan chilis and curries/stews are good, I have a good recipe for a black bean chili with lots of cumin that is to die for and virtually fat free, I will post it. I find vegan recipes to be very satisfying because the focus is on the spice/vegetable flavour combinations - you don't even miss the meat. You could add some tofu if desired but I don't usually.
