Syns per serving: FREE
160g dried long-grain rice
300g thin pork loin steaks visible fat removed, cut into strips
Low-calorie cooking spray
200g green beans, trimmed
8 spring onions, roughly chopped
3cm piece fresh root ginger, peeled and finely chopped
1 large red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
200g baby pak choi, leaves separated
150g small cooked frozen peeled prawns, defrosted
100g frozen peas, defrosted
3 medium eggs
1 tbsp reduced-salt soy sauce
1 Cook the rice according to the pack instructions, then drain and leave to steam-dry. Meanwhile, season the pork. Spray a large, lidded, non-stick frying pan or wok with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium-high heat. Stir-fry the pork for 1-2 minutes, then remove from the pan and set aside.
2 Spray the pan with a little low-calorie cooking spray. Add the beans, spring onions, ginger and chilli, and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Stir through the rice and pak choi. Add 3 tbsp water, cover and cook for 2 minutes.
3 Return the pork to the pan with the prawns and peas. Cook for 2 minutes, or until the prawns are cooked through, and the peas are piping hot.
4 Whisk together the eggs and soy sauce. Make a well in the rice mixture using a spoon and pour in the egg mixture. Leave for 15-30 seconds, then quickly stir and leave again. Repeat until the eggs are scrambled, then mix into the rice. Divide between 4 bowls and serve.

There is a huge list of Free Food to choose from, which doesn’t need to be weighed, calorie counted or measured.
You can also snack on these to satisfy your hunger in between meals.
In addition, you are encouraged to eat measured quantities of certain foods, known as ‘Healthy Extras’ that provide nutrients essential for a healthy, balanced diet.
These include milk and cheese (for calcium) and cereals and wholemeal bread (for fibre and minerals).
And so you never feel deprived you can enjoy limited amounts of treats which are higher-calorie, less filling foods that include chocolate, crisps and alcohol.
