0 cal cooking spray (alternatively you could use SmartBalance imitation butter, that’ll add ~13 calories per serving)
1/4 cup chopped yellow onion
2 cloves minced garlic
2 cups chopped raw mushrooms
bullion for 32 oz of water (so if 1 teaspoon is for 8 oz/1 cup of water, use 4 teaspoons. use whatever flavor you like)
1 teaspoon of pepper
optional: chili pepper flakes, bay leaves, whatever spices you’d like
1 cup/8 oz unsweetened original almond milk
3 cups of water
sautée the onion in the cooking spray over medium-low heat in a medium pot. once slightly translucent add in garlic and cook until golden brown. add in chopped mushrooms and cook for about a minute. add in the bullion and pepper (and other spices if you so choose). cook until the mushrooms are tender, then add in the almond milk and turn heat to high. once it boils, add in the water and allow the soup to reach a boil again. let it boil for about a minute, then turn heat to medium-low and let it simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. let cool and enjoy!

*THIS IS MY RECIPE*
1/3 package Impossible Burger (240)
1 Package Bunapi mushrooms (35)
1 package Shiitake mushrooms (40)
1/2 onion (20)
3 cloves garlic (0)
1/2 Tablespoon oil (50)
1 Tablespoon Oregano (0)
1 Teaspoon onion powder (8)
5 Tablespoons water
1 Teaspoon vegan bouillon (10)
Heat oil in skillet
Break apart Impossible Burger, and sauté on med-high heat until just starting to brown
Add chopped onion, cook until just translucent
Add mushrooms, pepper, onion powder, and Oregano. Sauté covered until mushrooms begin to soften.
Add water, bouillon, and garlic. Cook for a few more minutes to deglaze the pan, and until mushrooms are cooked to your liking.
Notes: You can, of course, use any kind of mushrooms you like or that are available to you. I get the Bunapis and Shiitakes at Whole Foods. Add salt or more bouillon if you want more seasoning. Add thyme and/or cayenne for even more flavor.
~i'm providing this recipe to show people can still satisfy their cravings without the guilt. this is my personal recipe i decided to share with others who need a filling low calorie meal that isn't bland.~
i saw this low cal pizza on tiktok for 185 calories by @/ice.karimcooks !! when making it my way it only came to 146 calories so feel free to add how much cheese or sauce you want!! (this is not a vegan recipe but it can be!) total calories and macros at the end!
1/4 cup low fat cheese- 60 cal (Reduced Fat Fiesta Blend Cheese)
5 slices of turkey pepperoni- 21 cals (Hormel)
any other ingredients you please!
*feel free to use your own ingredients these are just the ones i used! this recipe ranges from 130-200+ cals its still pretty low in calories but tasty and filling!
For this pizza you can use an airfryer, microwave, toaster oven, or any appliance that can cook a pizza. I used an airfryer!*
Assemble your pizza with sauce cheese and any other toppings
Place pizza in appliance and cook on the highest heat possible or until cheese melts. Enjoy!
*Notes: if your pizza is too light and youre using an airfryer jt might b useful to insert skewers from one side of the pizza to the other because mine FLEW HAHA! also,
i hope you enjoyed this recipe as much as i did! this pizza definitely beat my cravings without feeling guilty. remember that you can use any ingredients you prefer this was just my personal recipe choice!! stay safe <33
Calories + Macronutrients (i forgot to take a picture of the actual pizza, i apologize)
and before you start typing - hear me out.
chips are that one thing that you just assume has A LOT of calories. and technically you wouldn't be wrong BUT..
if you're restricting and you REALLY crave chips or salty and/or unhealthy snack in general - that small can of pringles (40g) has approximately 200 calories.
AND YEAH I KNOW IT STILL SOUNDS LIKE A LOT
but you get 20 chips and tbh you can just snack on them the whole day. or just eat one or two (+/- 10 calories each) and save them for another day you would crave things like this.
and if eating few chips stops you from binging - it's a win win imho.
