    SS+/810 Meal Ideas

    So, I am a serial lurker on this forum - and one thing that I find really frustrating is that there's not many meal recipes that people have either tried, or eaten. Though I am still SS with a couple of SS+ meals thrown in at the moment, I am planning to keep this updated when I have recipes worth trying, or even just to keep me accountable!

    Enjoy, and please join in too!

    So, I started off when I needed my first SS+ meal with the real basics:

    wilted spinach and poached eggs.

    I really struggle to get eggs to look "poachy" and sometimes, they just don't work! What I didn't want to do is "waste" my eggs with the white falling apart. A top tip from Lorraine Pascale, and the eggs have been amazing every time since!

    Use a shallow pan/frying pan - I have a mini omelette pan which is perfect for two little eggies.
    I use a capful of cider vinegar in the water - I haven't tried it without yet, but i'm sure it is fine.
    Get the water SIMMERING, not boiling. Lower the eggs in gently. Simmer for 5 mins for gorgeous soft yolks.

    I always drain mine on kitchen roll too because I hate it when my plate is swimming!

    Completely unimaginative, but delicious nonetheless!

    Stir fried prawns with wilted pak choi and brocolli.

    This was me getting adventurous for the first time. I had a serious craving for juicy prawns!

    So, I created a quick marinate for them which consisted of:
    - fresh ginger
    - chilli - green
    - a little fish sauce
    - a little soy sauce
    - a little lime juice

    As the pak choi and brocolli wilted in a dry pan with a little water, I fried off the prawns in a hot (dry) pan.

    Cooked and done and dusted in about 10 minutes, it was delicious and ridiculously filling!

    Fajita Chicken lettuce wraps

    - protein allowance: 1/2 chicken and one medium egg
    - veg allowance: lettuce leaves - use iceburg or round, green pepper and cucumber.

    coat chicken in fajita spice and then dry fry with the pepper.
    Boil the egg
    peel of large lettuce leaves and chop cucumber into small pieces.

    Once the egg is cooked, chop into four or six and mix with the chicken and pepper. fill the lettuce leaves with the mix and then top with cucumber. I could have put some spring onion in, but didn't have any in the fridge!

    I love eggs, so didn't think this weird - i'm sure some might, so omit and have the full portion of chicken.
