Healthy Filling Meals

Ask a Question

I’m currently 37 weeks pregnant with a very large baby boy, who has me starving at all times... recently I’ve found the only meals I can have that are filling enough to get me through the night is pasta dishes... I would love to be eating salads and being all healthy, but it’s just not enough food!

Anyone have any ideas of healthy but filling meals?

I find meals like sausage and mash and stir fry dishes are really filling and easy to make, and you can make them healthy! Also either baby potatoes/homemade chips or jacket potatoes could be a good idea 🙂

I just made plain rice cooked on the hob in saltwater and chicken in curry sauce. Then put one spatula of rice on a plate and then a spatula of chicken in curry sauce. Very yummy and filling and has nutritional value in it. I would recommend a variety of chicken dishes as it's very healthy and have a side of salad.

3 tbsp chilli powder

1 tsp chipolte powder

1 can (15oz) black beans, drained and rinsed

1 can (15oz) kidney beans, drained and rinsed

1 can cannellini beans (15oz), drained and rinsed

1 tbsp cocoa powder (or a small piece of dark chocolate, optional

360 ml of water or vegetable stock

Salt and pepper to season

Garnish with onions, sliced, plant-based plain yoghurt and lime wedges.

Method

  1. Heat the oil (or water) and saute the onion for 5 minutes until translucent.

I am the same, salads just don’t fill me up!!

Try adding some new potatoes to your salad and have it with proteins such as salmon and chicken. x

I use lots of lentils, veg and beans to stretch the meat dishes and they are filling too
