If you’re anything like me then you’ll also find it hard to stay healthy at the weekends. I don’t want to deprive myself, I wonna treat myself but without gaining an extra chin.
What with summer almost upon us I’ve been trying to come up with recipes that taste like a takeaway that aren’t as detrimental to my figure. Chinese food is one of my favourites but highly calorific so I decided to come up with my own healthier version of pork balls without compromising on flavour. Enjoy as a starter or part of a main, they’re also great for anyone that likes to meal prep as can be cooked in batch.
