So this week we are hitting the Slimming World way of life once more.
The biggest thing I struggle with when trying to change the way we eat is planning, if I don’t plan everything then it all goes wrong.
So this time I thought I would get involved with the Meal Planning Monday so I have a record of what we are eating. Hopefully I shall also post the recipes that I like the most as we are trying lots of new Slimming World ones this time around.
So this week I am doing Extra Easy each day so I am able to have 2 Healthy Extras one from the A list and one from the B list, along with 5-15 syns each day. My plan is quite simple and I am actually sticking to the same breakfast and lunch each day to make it even easier.
Breakfast: Porridge with some fruit (Using my A and B Healthy Extras)
Lunch: Roasted veg, and bacon couscous with a vinegar dressing. (Free)
Tuesday: Tuna and Sweetcorn Jacket Potato (half a syn)
Wednesday: We go up the Mother in Laws on Wednesday and generally have a Shepherds Pie (Free)
Thursday: Chicken Stirfry (Free)
Friday: Bangers and Beans – a slimming world recipe (2.5 syn per sausage)
Saturday: Battered Cod and Syn Free Chips (1.5 syn per fish)
Sunday: Butternut Squash and Bacon Risotto – a slimming world recipe (Free)
Monday: Fry up (2.5 syns per sausage)
So that is our week sorted and lets hope we can stick to it. Most days I am leaving the syns so that I can save these for moments that I may need a little extra!
I shall be weighing myself this evening and getting cracking with my exercise bike to see how I get on in the first week.
