I love Fish as a low-calorie protein option and this Hearty Italian Fish Stew is filling and healthy. I found the original recipe in a magazine and altered it to make it fit my 5:2 lifestyle.
Why you should eat more fish
If dietary changes are part of your overall plan to lower your cholesterol levels, fish is a good option. While all fish contain some cholesterol, many are high in omega-3 fatty acids. … Your body can’t make essential omega-3 fatty acids, so you have to get them from the food you eat.
This tasty stew is full of prawns and fish and tasty herbs and is cooked in one pot – saving on the washing up. It is also the perfect 5:2 Recipe as it
The original recipe had potatoes in it which I am currently avoiding. This was swapped for Butternut Squash. Also, I added spinach as I have a tendency to add this fabulous source of nutrients and iron to everything savoury I cook. We eat a lot of spinach here which is why I grow my own spinach which you can read about here.
I love these handy low- calorie but nutritious meals which leave you feeling satisfied and are good enough to eat even if you are not trying to lose weight. Serve it with Cauli rice or steamed broccoli as low cal options or crusty artisan bread if you are feeling the need for more.
Here is the nutritional breakdown of the recipe
