Well, i've been super organised and planned all of my meals right up to monday! Im having a hardcore red week and ive just been paid so i've been able to buy some really nice meat which i was missed!! I also bought 2 cookbooks and got a free recipe card and cookbook with the new SW magazine in class last night so i've gone to town on trying some new recipes.

So, here is what i have planned for my evening meals this week:

Thursday (RED) - Lamb casserole served with carrotts, brocolli, cauliflower and 198g new potato's (all free + HEB)

Friday (RED) - Grilled Duck breast in cherry sauce served with oriental vegetables (2 syns)

Saturday (Extra Easy) - Chicken Pad Thai, recipe was for vegetable in new mag but im adding chicken, (2 syns) and Thai bites with yogurt and chive dip (free)

Sunday (RED) - Pork brochettes served with salad and jacket potato (all free + HEB)

Monday (RED) - Chicken jalfrezi with Bombay Potato made with BNS and 198g new potato's (all free + HEB)

So, whadda think? I needed to get my arse into gear and start cooking different things instead of sticking to the same meals all of the time, fingers crossed this will be me the boost i need :)

Its not so much that i eat crap if i dont plan its just ive been eating the same thing over and over again :rolleyes:

I think variety is good and im trying to add more superfree foods in daily as well. My losses have slowed right down to 1/2 pound per week so i really need to be getting back to at least 1 pound per week to ensure im on track to achieve target.

I also bought the EE cookbook and i;m going to try 1 week of EE soon - im cacking it! lol
