Hi everyone,

Wondering if anyone can give me some vegetarian inspiration for fasting days? Struggling to stay on track at the minute! smile

Try the veggie and vegan book by Kate Harrison for ideas, I used it quite a bit whilst doing the fast 800 even though it was a 5 2 book. Do you eat quorn or egg?

I make a really nice mushroom chilli

I've been doing a veggie 5:2 / 6:1 for a couple of years now but I'm very boringly repetitive about what I eat and I won't/can't cook because I do it on working days. I tend to rotate: the egg and spinach pots in the supermarket / a Nakd or Bounce or similar bar but only the nice flavours / the lowest cal porridge pot / a bowl of (usually) lentil soup for dinner. Um, that's pretty much it grin

Pumpkin, celeriac and king oyster mushroom soup. Equal quantities of all three veggies cooked in water/veggie stock til soft then whizzed up together. Swirl of olive oil (chilli one if you like) and squeeze of lemon or lime juice. Bit of ginger grated, then juice squeezed into soup is also good. If you want a bit of extra thickness or sweetness add a bit of potato or sweet potato ( just about 1/2 quantity of other veggies).
