I’ve been a little ‘off’ the past few weeks. Papa John got back in my life along with his friends Mr.Cadburys and the inventor of cakes. In other words, I have eaten everything I possibly wanted and more. But it needs to stop. I refuse to re-gain any of the weight I have struggled to … More She’s back to it!
I have been making these muffins since my first week at slimming world. I never thought I would be able to have something so delicious on a so-called ‘diet’. However with their strong banana taste and generous drizzle of peanut butter there is no going wrong! Now I have to be honest, these are not … More Muffins!
Birthdays have always been a big celebration for me. I’ve never been somebody who goes crazy at Christmas or who eats loads of eggs at easter. For some reason though, I’ve always found an excitement and need to celebrate not only my birthday but the birthdays of those close to me. So when it came … More Celebratory alcohol!
Anybody who knows me knows I am happy to try just about anything when it comes to a cheat meal. By cheat I mean a slimming world or diet version of something generally delicious and calorific. It could be pizza, pasties, pastries, burgers and so on. Now, nobody can make a perfect slimming world pizza … More Give it a go!
I have never been able to make a good poached egg. I have tried spinning the water, putting vinegar in the water and even using those little rubber cups you can get at the shop. Every time they fall apart or are raw in the middle. But that was until somebody at work told … More Perfect Poach
Now somebody told me about the new craze that is ‘ZOATS’ during one of my Slimming World meetings. As you can imagine, I was exactly the same as most of the group and instantly turned my nose up. COURGETTE AND OATS! The idea alone made my feel a bit ill. But as you will soon … More A twist on porridge.
Sometimes you just can’t get from meal to meal without your stomach grumbling. My main troublesome time is around 11:30 when it’s not quite lunch time yet but I had breakfast over three hours ago! So of course, being Slimming World, I can eat! None of this starving until lunch business that some eating plans … More Don’t forget to syn the snacks!
So nobody can deny that the food range in M&S isn’t amazing (although a little overpriced). However on top of the hefty payout there are also the hidden syn values. I decided to treat myself after losing 3 pounds this week and went for the ‘Moroccan Spiced Butternut Coucouc Salad with Roasted Carrot Dip’ thinking … More Moroccan lunch.
