Add in some more variety with these alternative dinner options!

There is bound to be a day where you don't fancy the dinner set out for you in this plan, or perhaps you just don't like one of the meals. So we compiled a list of seven more dinners for you.

Dinner Option 1
Inspired Cuisine Chicken Jalfrezi With Pilau Rice (453 calories)

Dinner Option 2
Inspired Cuisine Spaghetti & Meatballs (490 calories)

Dinner Option 3
Inspired Cuisine Tomato Pasta Bake (488 calories)

Dinner Option 6
Ready Set Cook! Meal Kit Teriyaki Beef Stir Fry (214 calories)

Dinner Option 7
Ready Set Cook! Meal Kit Chinese Chicken Stir Fry (278 calories)

Out of these alternatives, the chicken jalfrezi ready meal is one of my favourites. Very tasty!

I love creamy sauces so, the spinach and ricotta cannelloni always gets a thumbs up from me.

With the chicken stir-fry, it doesn't come with any noodles or anything so I chuck a load of beansprouts in it just before I've finished cooking it, bulks it out beautifully with hardly any extra calories.
