400 Calorie Meal

When I originally wrote this post in 2013, I was working at Curves. If you’re unfamiliar with Curves, it’s a fitness facility for women. Fast forward to 2017. I’m not longer working there, and I’ve learned how to take better pictures. I also learned that in weight loss, not everything has to be exact, and not every single calorie has to be minutely counted.
Even though my time at Curves is done, I really enjoyed some of the 400 calorie recipes in their Curves Complete plan. One of these is a what I turned into a gluten free beef stroganoff. I’ve tried it with various brands of pasta, including this Organic Brown Rice & Quinoa Fusilli from Trader Joe’s. At $2.99 for a 1 lb. bag, I thought that was a great deal! Added bonus? This pasta is also organic!

Do What Works Best for You

Now, I have to be honest that I “tweeked” this gluten free beef stroganoff recipe a bit from the original. To start, I sauteed the thin slices of beef in a tablespoon of butter. When those were cooked, I removed the beef from the pan and sauteed the onions and fresh mushrooms.
I used Pacific Foods Cream of Mushroom instead of Cream of Chicken, because mushrooms are amazing. I also substituted Greek yogurt instead of the sour cream. (We never have sour cream in the house and ALWAYS make this substitution.) I also left out the flour and water, because the mixture was plenty thick.
