    Sophie's Vegan Food Diary

    Some people may remember me from a few years ago. I managed to lose 6.5 stone in 9 months and it was super easy. I maintained for a year before giving into work stress and emotional eating. So now I'm back, not to where I started but with around 2.5 stone to lose.

    I have a new job that I love and live in a new city that I love but for some reason it's been so much harder this time round. I've been failing at SW spectacularly for 8 months now, losing around 7lbs before putting it all back on again. I decided enough was enough at my last weigh in. I know that when I focus I can do this, I've done it before. I know I'm using every difficult meal that crops up as an excuse to stuff my face and I just want to fit into all the nice clothes I bought. So, I decided to get back onto SW the way I did before, and this forum was a big part of the support for me. I used to follow the plan religiously, write up all my meals and best of all, stuff my face with tasty food. So that's what I'm going to do. And what better way to start than with a new food diary? Here goes

    As I'm vegan, I always stick to the Green plan.

    10/04

    Breakfast - Well...I said I was doing it like before...and I never remembered to have breakfast back then either!

    Lunch - "Tuna" Rice Salad (mashed chickpeas with syn free tofu mayo, gherkins, spring onion, rice, grated carrot, cherry tomatoes and seaweed) with 2 slices of marmite on wholemeal toast (B). Then I had a handful of strawberries.

    Snack - 2 bananas and a clementine. Choices dairy free buttons (7 syns)

    Dinner - Leftover sausage casserole (Fry's sausages (free), onion, garlic, pepper, tinned tomatoes, veg stock, aubergine, mushrooms) stirred into gnocci (5 syns)

    Drinks - tea with soya milk (A) and apple cordial

    Hello! Yes, I need to do a search and get some meal ideas. In a bit of a rut food wise at the moment

    Ah, syn free mayo...it's so easy

    400g silken tofu
    1tbsp sweetener
    2 tbsp cider vinegar
    1 tsp mustard (0.5 syns but with the amount it makes, it's pretty much redundant)
    1 tsp onion granules
    1/2 tsp salt

    Blend in a food processor. Adjust seasonings to taste. Depending on how beany the tofu is, I'll sometimes add more vinegar to mask the taste. If you want a firmer mayo just pop it in the fridge for a bit. It's great for stirring into pasta/rice salads or making an eggless salad with tofu

    btw, love your avatar. Big fan of Hyperbole and a Half!

    Busy weekend!

    12/04

    Lunch - Mung bean curry with rice and potatoes (8 syns? Bit of a guess, was at a restaurant)
    Dinner - Veggie Chilli (onion, garlic, peppers, mushrooms, courgette, tvp, chopped tomatoes, stock, chilli, chipotle,cumin, paprika, salt) with rice
    Drinks - green tea, tea and soya milk (A), water

    13/04

    So yesterday was really bloody hard. I was at a Natural Organics trade show with work. Basically a massive hall filled with amazing vegan, organic food that I HAVE to sample as part of my job. Annoyingly it seems to be raw chocolate that is the 'in' thing this year, along with nutty cereal bars. I was really good at just having one bit of everything but there were a LOT of stalls.

    Breakfast - 3 bananas and an apple
    Lunch - samples, samples, samples (who knows how many syns?? I don't even want to think about it!)
    Dinner - Indian buffet (dal, lots of boiled rice, veggie curry, poppadom, spinach and potato, chickpeas) I'm guessing around 12 syns. Very oily.

    14/04

    My weigh in was today and I lost a pound. Not to be sneered at but gutted that yesterday probably blew the decent loss I'd been hoping for. It's my birthday on Wednesday so I have a meal coming up. Just need to plan lots of syn free stuff beforehand and afterwards and fingers crossed for a big loss next week.

    Lunch - Wholemeal Pittas (B) stuffed with 3 Cauldron falafel (6 syns) hummus (2 syns) gherkins, salad leaves, leftover rice
    Dinner - Either syn free sausage or syn free chick'n creamy mustard casserole (onions, mushrooms, peppers, aubergine, peas, spinach, garlic, cherry tomatoes, soya milk (A), wholegrain mustard (1.5 syns) and vegetable stock) Gonna serve this with rice
    Snacks - banana and an apple
    Drinks - Water, Kara Chocolate Milk (A), Tea

    Syns - 9.5

    Been on plan the last few days, just been ridiculously busy. Lost 1.5lb at WI, which is okay I guess. Want to get 4lb this week and just get my 1/2 stone award over and done with. Gonna throw in a few red days and see what happens. But for today, I'm on Green.

    Lunch: 1 tin of baked beans, wholemeal toast (B) with yeast extract. Salad leaves, cherry toms. 2 bananas
    Dinner: Will be syn free mince & veg stirred into bulgar wheat or something else free. Will chuck onions, garlic, mushrooms, pepper and aubergine in there.
    Drinks: apple cordial, kara chocolate milk (A)
    Extra stuff: Worked on food prep on deli today so reckon I had my second (B) on olive oil, also I'll say 2 syns for the tiny fork of coleslaw I had to taste too.

    Snacks: Dairy Free Choc Caramels - 12 syns
