So this week’s Slimming World meal plan is a bit late but it is the summer holidays and we’ve been out having fun! I’m trying to keep our main meals as low syn as possible as on our days out a few treats creep in…Now the kids are at home during the summer this is when I start to lose track a little bit. I’m cooking lunch for them and then cooking a separate meal for me, but sometimes this just goes out of the window and I end up having whatever they are having which isn’t the best idea for sticking to the Slimming World plan.
I’m going to be getting organised and finding lot’s of low syn lunch ideas so I can plan ahead and make simple lunches so I’m not tempted to stray, so keep a look out for that post coming up on the blog soon.
I’ll also be making extra portions of our evening meals and freezing them when I can to give me lot’s of options I can just grab out of the freezer. Not everything freezes well but some meals can be left in the fridge for lunch the next day, like this gorgeous cheesy potato bake. It doesn’t freeze well but it tastes amazing the next day!
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.
- Salmon with Squartz Fish seasoning, salad & new potatoes (Syn Free)
- Homemade chilli & rice (Syn Free)
- Homemade chicken noodle soup (Syn Free)
- Cheesy Bacon & Potato bake (Syn Free is using cheese as your HE A)
- Turkey steak ‘pizzas’ with salad (Syn Free)
- It’s the hubby’s birthday so we’re having a BBQ so lot’s of grilled meat & skewers to keep it syn free so I can enjoy a few ciders! (Syn Free)
- Speedy spring lamb hotpot (Syn Free)
