  4. Thanks Gals… I wonder if you will be able to do some calorie counting on serves in the future? I have signed up for 12wbt (again) and I know checking my daily intakes works for me…. actually. I might try calculating for you, cheers, Libby

    Hi Libby! We’re big believers in not counting calories, as all calories aren’t equal. It comes from personal experience of becoming completely obsessed with counting and eventually getting quite sick. We believe in eating a colourful plate full of fresh, good quality produce, eating when you’re hungry and really listening to your body to make sure you’re stopping when you’re satisfied 🙂 e + c

  6. Another delish dish. – thank you. Used coriander instead of dill and added a little garlic powder. Will take leftovers to work tomorrow for lunch! Do you think these can go in the freezer?

    HI Melinda! We reckon they will go well in the freezer! Haven’t tried though. YUM we love coriander so so so much! Glad you liked them! x

  8. Yum I made these last night for my mother and I – we both agreed they were delicious!
    I added in one grated white zucchini and it worked out perfectly.
    Keen to see what recipes we cook during the 4 week challenge 🙂

    Hey Shay, you’ll have to figure that out for yourself 🙂 we don’t count macros, calories, fats, whatever… as it has never served us in the long run of our health journey 🙂 we prefer to focus on real ingredients <3 <3

  29. Loved these! I didn’t have dill so used coriander and made a quick slaw to go with them – cabbage, carrot, onion, coriander, ginger, lemon juice, olive oil and salt. So delicious. Will definitely be making them again ?
