Each week I’ve been writing a Slimming World meal plan and sharing them on the blog, I’m loving that we can have really varied meals, including cheese, rice & pasta and other things that are normally off the menu on typical ‘diets’We’ve only got three weeks until our holiday in Portugal so I’m well & truly back on the Slimming World wagon after a few slip ups due to birthdays, nights out etc. This week I’m totally creating a meal plan around the food we have in. We still have lot’s of veg & salad left over from last week, plus lot’s of chicken & mince in the freezer from our last Muscle Food order.
I’m still struggling a bit with my lunch, trying to find quick and easy meals that are not too heavy. We buy our meat in bulk from Muscle Food (use code TK551294 to get some extra freebies in your order) as everything is really low fat and virtually syn free (have a nosy at the videos below). When bagging up the meat portions for our meals I’ve also made sure I have portions ready to take out of the freezer for my lunch too, instead of grabbing something quick out of the pantry and having too many syns.
I’ve even started doing more batch cooking. I’ll bulk out the evening meal with extra veg, for example if we’re have spag bol I’ll all courgettes, chunkt tomatoes & onions then there’s still plenty left for lunch. I’ve even started par boiling spare veg at the end of the week and freezing in portions to add to easy lunches.
Breakfast has been pretty easy. I’ve been having a Muller light with fruit most days. I really didn’t think this would fill me up but if I’m still peckish I’ll just add more fruit to increase my Speed Foods.
On the mornings when I’m starving, or going to the gym I’ll have something a bit more substantial like scrambled eggs & spinach instead. I never used to really like the texture of spinach but shredding it first makes a difference for me.
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 normally use my Healthy Extra A for my milk for my cups of teas so will include all the syns for the meals below
- Jacket potatoes with some leftover Syn Free SW Chilli out of the freezer & salad (Syn free for me as I won’t have any butter on my spud)
- Homemade Chicken & Mushroom Risotto (syn free)
- Homemade burgers using less than 5% fat mince with SW friendly sweet potato wedges & salad (Syn Free)
- Homemade spaghetti bolagnaise (Syn Free)
- Chicken stir fry (Syn Free)
- Omelettes using whatever veg & salad is leftover (syn free)
- SW friendly roast dinner using chicken breasts (no gravy or mash for me so it’s syn free)
