Vegetable Stir Fry {5:2 Diet Recipe}

I'm now starting week 4 of the 5:2 fasting diet and things are so far so good. I've lost a steady 2lbs per week without feeling like I've been missing out on anything. On fast days I eat around 500 calories which usually consists of a late breakfast and then a dinner or a light breakfast and lunch and then a larger dinner. Crispbread's with Marmite have become my new best friend, at only 19 calories per crispbread I have them for breakfast if I feel that I can't wait until late morning. Sticks of celery are a life saver if I get the mid afternoon munchies and My Fitness Pal is a handy app that I use to keep track of my calories on my ipad and phone.

A favourite dinner on fast days is stir fry as I can have a pile of veggies for very few calories, with a stock cube adding flavour, and only 164 calories. I use whatever vegetables I have in, but always courgettes and broccoli.

Vegetable Stir Fry - Serves 1

1 garlic clove, crushed - 4 cals
1 Courgette (175g) - 35 cals
Broccoli florets (100g) - 30 cals
Beef Oxo cube - 13 cals
Chilli flakes - 1 cal
1/2 portion Amoy straight to wok rice noodles (75g) - 81 cals

  • Add a small amount of water to a wok & bring to the boil
  • Add the garlic, vegetables,stock cube & chilli flakes and steam the veg until cooked to your liking
  • Add more water if needed
  • Stir in the noodles & warm through

  2. Well done you on the 5:2 diet! About to start myself this week - keep trying to find a clear day to begin but life's all a little hectic right now! This looks wonderful though and not at all 'diet' food.

  3. thank you....I think you just need to go for it, as long as you have a few supplies in you'll be's just one day ...celery all the way! Let me know how you get on x

  4. Oh gosh! That looks SO GOOD! I hadn't thought of doing a stir fry but this is definitely on the cards for next week's skinny days.

  5. This recipe was the best for me because my mother try to cook this and she got it perfect. Aside from this vegetable stir fry, do you also have a stir fried chicken? I want to taste it.
