ISO: 500 calories or less lunches

Do you have recipes for 500 calories or less meals, entrees or packed lunches on your blog or have run across a source that does? If so, please let me know!

I’ve been challenged to eat 1500 calories or less a day and so I’m the search for new recipes that are 500 calories or less. The second challenge is finding ones that work well as packed lunches in the summer, meaning I’d prefer to not have to use the microwave.

From the library, I picked up Martha Stewart’s Everyday Food Light, which has recipes of 500 calories or less and marked a few to try before I need to return the book.

I’m tracking my food in MyFitnessPal and the chances I’ll give up my morning, post-workout banana or my apple and cheese snack is unlikely, so I’ve already committed those calories.

    I have also been on a restricted calorie lifestyle plan, and these are resources I use frequently:

    Hungry Girl (she has a ton of cookbooks, and at the library I work at we have them, so I suspect yours would as well)
    Cooking Light magazine has great recipes, and they put out cookbooks, too. They have some online, as well.

    My spouse and I stumbled over here by a different website and thought I might as well check things out. I like what I see so i am just following you. Look forward to looking into your web page repeatedly.
