Sweet and Sour ChickenMake on Drop
We are doing a few low calorie recipes for the New Year. I am not a big supporter of low calorie eating, as you will probably know as I don't think it really does much for anyone. If you focus on calories rather than growing taller, I think you will have a shorter more depressing life! I feel as though the best way to be fit and healthy is to exercise and to make as much of your food as you can from scratch, with ingredients you recognise as being actual food. No numbers, no nasties, no additives. So this one is extremely delicious, better than any takeout (#fakeaway) and completely doable with ease on a hot night! Enjoy counting the calories, it won't take you long, cos there aren't many!
