Low Calorie Recipes 4

Low Calorie Recipes 4Well I’ve lost 45 lbs since I started this vegan diet and I thought I’d cover some of my new favorite low calorie recipes. In this video I’ll cover how to make vegan Egg Salad, Crab Salad, Crab Cakes, Tuna Salad and Tuna Melts in low calorie alternatives.

I use my vegan mayo in a few of these recipes and I cover how to make it in this previous video. The 3 odd ingredients I use can be found here Kala Namak, Nutritional Yeast and Vegg.
