To keep on track I really need to write a Slimming World meal plan each week. If I don’t, we tend to fall into bad habits and don’t stick to the plan properly. By knowing what we’re going to eating each day means I can get out any meat etc from freezer to defrost ready to cook.
The hubby is a lot more active than me during the day as I work from home, which also means during the day is definitely the hardest part for me.I have no problems snacking in the evenings as I make a proper meal for the hubby & I. It’s the lunchtime & mid afternoon snacking that I need to get over, especially when I making the kids tea and picking at food as I’m cooking. To try and keep myself on track during the day I’ve started making a big Syn Free hash brown crust quiche and freezing it in portions.
I can grab a slice of quiche out of the freezer the night before and just pop it in the oven to heat up ready for breakfast or with a salad for lunch. It’s perfect for this weather.
Plus I’ve also started doing a little bit of batch cooking too. If I’m making spag bol or chilli then I’ll make a huge batch and freeze some smaller portions that can easily be warmed up in the microwave.
I’ve been getting pretty bored with just fruit & yogurt for breakfast but I don’t want to use up both my healthy extra a & b on cereal, plus I’m not a fan of toast so instead I’ve been making myself slimming world friendly overnight oats instead. It’s a super simple syn free recipe which is a bonus, and I’ve just added to my Slimming World recipe section on the blog. Plus you can make it in so many different flavours and add different fruits to up your speed foods too.
This is the one I’ve struggled with. I’ve gotten into the habit of not bothering to cook just for myself, and as I work from home I’ll tend to just snack throughout the day. I’m making sure I have lot’s of lunch options that are super quick, plus lot’s of leftovers in the freezer ready to microwave.
I’ve bought a new Free & Easy recipe book so I also want to try out Asian tuna & sweetcorn fritters (Syn Free) plus I’ll also be making a leek & potato soup this week to warm up for lunches too as I’ve got my new NutriBullet to try out.
I normally use my Healthy Extra A for my milk for my cups of teas but I’m trying to drink more green tea, so I’ll still have my A choice for meals.
- Pork seasoned with Squartz Classic BBQ seasoning, hassle back potatoes & corn on the cob (Syn Free)
- Beef & mushroom stroganoff (2 1/2 syns per serving)
- Italian meatballs with pasta (Syn Free)
- Birdseye Fish Sensations Lemon & Tyme with new potatoes & spinach (1/2 syn for the fish portion)
- Pulled pork with sweet potato wedges, sugar snap peas & baby corn (Syn Free)
- Beef in red onion gravy & crushed veg (Syn Free)
- Speedy spring lamb hotpot (Syn Free)
