8 common household meals that contain MORE calories than your daily allowance!
Think that just because you’re making your meals at home for your family that they’re healthier than eating fast food every day?
Unless you are making EVERYTHING from scratch – we’re talking about ditching the sauce bottles – and using wholemeal alternatives, then you could be at risk of making food that contains a lot of calories.
In some cases, you could be eating more calories than your daily allowance!
The average woman needs around 2,000 calories a day but around 1,500 a day on a diet (with flexibility if you are breastfeeding).
8 household meals that have more calories than you realise!
1. Pizza with regular crust
Have no time to make a meal? Then, a quick and easy fix for many mums and dads is to order in a pizza for the family.
But did you know, an average 14″ regular crust pizza contains around 2,269 calories upwards?
A full roast dinner with all the trimmings – we’re talking chicken, beef or lamb, roast potatoes dripping in oil, veg, cauliflower cheese – can have as much as 850 calories, if not more – especially if you go back for another helping!
