Each week I’ve been writing our 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 been away for the Easter holidays on a gorgeous all inclusive holiday. I’ve not pigged out but I haven’t exactly gone for the healthiest options each time. Plus all the cocktails and G&T’s probably haven’t helped my waistline either.
This week we are well & truly back on the Slimming World plan after all that indulgence. I’ve got my gorgeous cousins 40th birthday party in July and have a stunning dress I need to fit into, so I’ve got to get back on track.
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 starting to prep in advance, either cooking more the night before so I can have the left overs for lunch or prepping a meal based on the night before. So today we’re having a slimming world friendly roast chicken dinner. So I’m also cooking some pasta to make a chicken pasta salad for lunch tomorrow too. Hopefully this will help keep me on track.
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.
