saladAlthough it's tempting to buy a convenience food that you can heat up for a quick light meal, it is just as easy to prepare a meal yourself. All the stunning recipes in this section are very simple and are either Sin-free or relatively low in Sins. Although they are light, they will fill you up and you are guaranteed not to feel hungry afterwards. Salads are among the most light, easy and delicious meals.

Italian tonno con fagiole
