Those look much better than most

I wouldn’t call some of them full dinners, but since they give you the actual calorie count you can choose to add something like cabbage or one of those Birds Eye veg steamers, and there is wiggle room for this on a lot of them. In fact all the ones i looked at and wondered where the veg had gone are less than 250 per portion so you easily could add some

Not sure why they put a load of honey in the shrimp noodles though! I wouldn’t want the flavour or the calories

Posted on recipe thread but this is really delish, try with chicken or turkey mince & add garlic

Bean shoots, noodles, shredded iceberg, red onion, tomato flesh, radish, spring onion, grated carrot, thin sliced cabbage, & a big dollop of this -

Not sure of cal count but low if you watch the oil.
