Well I've come back from WI 3lbs lighter and with a SOTW sticker. Very pleased!

20.07.10 Green Day

Breakfast - Melon

Lunch - Hummus sandwich (B + 3 syns)

Dinner - Pasta Arrabiata. This time I fried up some mushrooms, pepper and green beans and added them to the sauce. Was delicious.

I've not done well eating today but was busy with an editing course and then getting back to Putney for my WI. I was pleased with myself though, instead of getting the bus or train from uni into town, I walked the 40 minute walk instead :)
Not too good a day today either, but I have graduation tomorrow and I'm extremely busy!

21.07.10 Green Day

Breakfast - Fresh fruit salad

Lunch - 1 Linda (2 syns) SW chips and ketchup (1 syn)

Snack - Soya yogurt (2 syns)

Dinner - Jacket potato, baked beans and a large salad

Drinks - lemonade and squash

Syns = 5 (keeping them low as I have two meals out this week)
Right, I'm gonna say that from now on my meals are probably going to be green days unless I say otherwise haha


Breakfast - Slice of melon and 1 cherry soya yogurt (2 syns)

Lunch - Edamame and Tofu noodle soup at Wagamama. It was my after graduation meal and I think I chose the best option, it was without coconut milk but as I was eating it I could feel the oil on the noodles. Not used to having much oil at all now! Couldn't finish the entire bowl and left quite a lot. I'm going to count the rest of today's syns for that.

Dinner - will probably be salad (lettuce, tomatoes, pepper, red onion, beetroot, mushrooms) and some SW chips. I'm having them a lot recently, I just love them so much!

I'll probably have some raspberries and strawberries after that too.
Much better today, had loads of veg!

Breakfast - Cherry soy yogurt (2 syns)

Lunch - Vegetable curry (lentils, onion, garlic, pepper, cauliflower, tomatoes) and rice

Snack - Banana

Dinner - Jacket potato and baked beans with salad (lettuce, tomato, cucumber, beetroot)

Drinks - green tea, squash

Syns = 2

Today is a difficult day but I have prepared for it and saved a lot of syns!

Breakfast - Sliced potato fried in fry light, 1/2 tin baked beans, handful of plum tomatoes, beetroot.

Lunch - Hummus and Salad sandwich on wholemeal bread (both my Bs). Didn't really want to use up my healthy extra's but was put in a situation of having this or annoying my dad who had just driven me about in 2 hours of traffic..lol

Dinner - ??? Going to a restaurant where they're going to prepare something special for me so I have no idea what. Depending on how oily it is will depend how much I eat, might leave a bit of each course if it's oil overload! No extra bread for me either!

Drinks - Lots of water, squash and diet coke

I ended up having Gazpacho, risotto and fruit salad for the meal out. Yesterday's eating was okay, spent the whole day travelling or packing up stuff so it was all very quick and easy things.

Breakfast - Fruit salad: apple, orange and bananas

Lunch - Plain pasta with faux parmesan (no more than 2 syns worth I'd imagine) only thing left in my cupboards lol

Dinner - Lentil and veg curry with rice

Drinks - lots of squash and water

Will update with today's food later tonight

Breakfast - Cherry soy yogurt (2 syns) and a banana

Lunch - Lentil Dal

Snack - Popcorn (6 syns)

Dinner - Another bloody meal out, all these events at once! I had a plain salad with only balsamic vinegar on it. I then had a spaghetti in a tomato sauce, no cheese. Probably only had 1 tbsp of oil in it I reckon, was nice and light (B)

Drinks - Diet coke and squash

syns: 8
Not a bad day today, came out of WI with a 1.5lb loss, not bad for a week with 3 meals out. Spent the entire day cleaning my flat before moving every single thing out of there, think that's enough body magic for a week or so! Mum is dragging me on the wii fit tomorrow though, bit scared.

Breakfast - Banana

Lunch - Lentil Dal

Dinner - 3 Fry's traditional sausages (syn free!), SW chips, Baked beans, Plum tomatoes, fried mushrooms

Snacks: Bowl of raspberries

Drinks - lots and lots of squash, some cloudy lemonade at class
Im seriously wanting to become vegan but am scared about how limting it will be.
I just wondered if you could tell me where you buy things from?
Ie. soy cheese spread and frys meat items?
Also what soya yogurts do you have?
I tired the asda ones today and have never tasted anything so revolting!
Any tips or advice would be really appreciated. x
Just popped in to say Om Nom Nom and Pride on 3.
hahaha thanks....1...2...3...PRIDE!!

I was scared that veganism would be limiting, but it actually introduced me to a whole load of foods I'd never heard of! I probably eat a wider variety of foods now than I ever did before. My diet is a bit bland at the moment, mostly because I'm trying to get used to eating SW style and also because I'm trying to cook on the cheap.

The soy cheese I use is called Toffuti and it can be found at Holland and Barretts as well as other health food shops, same goes for the Fry's products. Cheezly is a great vegan cheese for melting and I find sheese tastes more like the real thing. I know Pure do cheese slices and a spread that is sold in supermarkets, but I wasn't too impressed by it.

I usually have Provamel or Alpro soy yogurts. I love the cherry flavours and apricot. I've had the Asda ones and thought they were quite good lol, what flavour did you have?

My biggest tip would probably be to research online beforehand, you don't want bad food experiences to put you off! Some of my favourite vegan blogs are 'Vegan Dad' and 'Fat Free Vegan' and I also run my own called Hasta La Vegan. Veggieboards is a really helpful forum, I joined when I first went vegan and it was a great place to ask questions and also to look at recipes. Investing in a cookbook or two would probably be a good start, even if you decide not to go vegan, there are some really great recipes out there. I recommend La Dolce Vegan by Sarah Kramer, I use it all the time!

Feel free to ask me any questions :) Hope this helps

Not been a bad day! Looking forward to my frittata, should be ready in 5 minutes. I also did 45 minutes on the wii fit today and burnt over 200 cals. Decided to give the exercise a wii boost so that my period doesn't sabotage the scales for me on Monday.
