    Default Hit me with your healthy dinner ideas!

    I'm trying to lose a few kg and am struggling to come up with healthy meal ideas for dinner besides the usual grilled chicken and salad fare.
    I'm not too fussy, just not a big fan of salmon.
    Also, what are some healthy tips/alternatives?
    Thanks

    * zucchini slice (with extra veg) and salad
    * roast beef and veg (just need to choose low-carb veg)

    Hi Marigold, some of my faves are tuna sang choi bow- Small leaves filled with Serena Tuna- the soy/ginger one is nice- with chopped coriander/ mint/ spring onions/ chilli on top and a drizzle of sesame oil. Also, my take on Baghdad eggs is fried egg cooked in crushed garlic, and a bit of butter, sprinkled with coriander seeds, cumin seeds, then served with chopped coriander, mint, lemon zest and a drizzle of olive oil. Can have it as with salad, or have 2 eggs instead. Dessert- greek yogurt with passionfruit/ strawberries etc. I find having some fresh herbs and lemons on hand can really jazz anything up. xx
