Each week I’ve been writing our meal plans trying to find new Slimming World Meals 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’
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’ve got to admit last week wasn’t a great week. We didn’t stick to meal plan as well as we should and I’ve come to the realisation I’m a bit of an emotional eater.
Last week was a tough week, it took it out of me both physically and emotionally and I ended up eating far too much junk. Thankfully I didn’t put any weight on but I also didn’t lose any either. This week I’m definitely going to be working harder and sticking to our meal plan.
The only exception will be Thursday night when I have another restaurant review, three courses with my sister plus we’re going out for cocktails afterwards for her 30th. I’ll make sure I work harder in the gym this week!
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
- Muscle Foods sweet chilli chicken burger with salad (1/2 each burger)
- Sirloin steak with SW friendly sweet potato wedges, baby corn, spinach & mushrooms (Syn Free if using Fry Light)
- Muscle Food Meatballs and homemade pasta sauce (1/2 Syn per two meatballs)
- Cajun chicken & spicy potatoes (Syn Free)
- Muscle Foods beef hache steaks with salad & new potatoes (Syn Free)
- Chicken chicken fakeaway curry using Mayflower Curry powder (5 Syns)
- Sausage & Bean Stew using Muscle Food sausages (1/2 Syn per sausage)
