Each week I’ve been writing our meal plans trying to find new Slimming World Meal Ideas and sharing them on the blog, I’m loving that we can have really varied meals rather than just salad as I’m a total salad dodger. I like a proper meal in the evening and with Slimming World you can do that.
I‘m still getting to grips with the terminology, what the different symbols mean and how to structure my meals but I’m definitely getting there. It seems so complex and confusing at first but once you get your head around it, it’s pretty easy to follow. I might follow this up with a Beginner’s Guide/Getting Started with Slimming World kind of post if that would be helpful? Let me know in the comments below.
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 Musle Food 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.
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.
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
- Homemade veg soup (Syn Free)
- Chicken breast with new potatoes, spinach & baby corn (both Speed Foods)
- Rump steak with sweet potato wedges & sugar snap peas (Syn Free)
- Speedy chicken & vegetable rice (Syn Free)
- Creamy chicken pasta (Syn Free)
- Chicken chicken fakeaway curry using Mayflower Curry powder (5 Syns)
- Homemade lasagne (Syn Free if using reduced fat cheese as Healthy Extra A )
