Here are some delicious, healthy recipes that you can serve up for your man.
It can be difficult finding low fat, low calorie recipes that the whole family, including your husband, will enjoy. Low fat food has a bit of a reputation as being a boring, full of vegetables and lacking in flavour. Luckily, we’ve come up with five husband-friendly recipes that are still healthy, low in fat but still high in flavour.

Turkey Burgers

Most men love a good burger – especially if it’s topped with cheese and served in a big floury bun. But there is a way to make burgers low fat, low calorie and filling to boot.

  • 250g turkey mince
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp. freshly chopped thyme leaves
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 50g wholegrain buns
  • 2 slices low-fat mozzarella cheese
  • Spinach leaves
  • 2 thick slices of tomato

Method of Preparation:

  1. Mix together the turkey mince, egg, thyme and salt and pepper. Shape into two patties.
  2. Grill the turkey burgers on either side until fully cooked through. Lay a slice of cheese onto each burger for the last 30 seconds of cooking.
  3. Slice the wholemeal bun through the middle, leaving it intact on at least one side. Serve the burger on the bun with the spinach and the tomato.

 Low Fat Chicken Kiev

Although this recipe calls for flavoured soft cheese, if you can’t find any, add two crushed garlic cloves and a good tsp. of mixed dried herbs to normal soft cheese.

  • 4 chicken breasts, skinless and boneless
  • 125g very low fat soft cheese flavoured with garlic and herbs (add 1 or two crushed garlic cloves depending on personal taste)
  • 50g wholemeal breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tbsp. plain flour
  • Salt and pepper
  • Oil spray

Method of Preparation:

  1. Put the chicken breasts between sheets of parchment paper or cling wrap and bash with a rolling pin until flattened.
  2. Soften the cheese by mixing it well with a spoon. Season it with salt and pepper, then put a quarter of it into the middle of each flattened chicken breast. Roll the chicken breast up, covering the filling, and fix in place with cocktail sticks.
  3. Pour the flour into one shallow dish, beat the egg white and put it into another then put the breadcrumbs into a third dish.
  4. Dip the chicken first into the flour, shaking to remove excess, then into the egg white, then into the breadcrumbs.
  5. Put the chicken into an oven dish spritzed with oil spray, then cook at 190C for 35-40 minutes.

Recipe serves 4, calories per serving: 254. Serve the chicken with homemade oven-baked wedges or a big green salad.
