    Looking back over my journal, I've been eating a lot of the same sorts of food. If it's not one particular meal/snack it's another. My dad's going food shopping tomorrow, so making the list now... Does anyone have any suggestions for meals that aren't too high in points? This includes breakfasts (I have the same one nearly every day).

    I'm not a big fan of fruit. Orange juice is about as far as I will go.

    I do however like vegetables, unfortunately I kinda went OTT with veg before I started the diet. I'm a little bored of cauliflower and broccoli, and I've been having peas quite a bit lately (half a point for a tablespoon).

    I don't like mushrooms... and tomatoes depend on my mood! lol

    The main meat and fish I have is chicken, beef, tuna and cod.

    I'm pretty boring really, but need some ideas so I'm not having crackers, and beans on toast all the time. And cereal or toast for every breakfast!

    Hi Sparkle

    I am the worlds worst person to advise on recipies etc as I am a typical "dont cook, wont cook" type of person. :D I am just useless in the kitchen.!! Good thing OH is a great cook.

    The one thing I find invaluable is my points calc, so I can buy 'normal' foods etc, and point everything up! Have you got one of those ??? they really are fantastic! it just means anything you buy if it has the cals & sat fat.. you can work out value! So you can have variety. Had loads of new things this week, and just worked the points out.

    I have got some old WW booklets, that do have a few recipies in if you would like them ?? might have somethings in there that you fancy doing.

    If you pm me your address will pop them in the post. :D

    All best

    I must admit to being lazy just now and using ready meals.

    I know its not much use just now but ebay have a lot of WW books, especially recipe ones for just a pound or two.

    Thanks Deb, I think I'll take you up on that!

    Starlight - I think I'll have a look on ebay to see what they have.

    Thanks Mini!!


    Well I went and actually joined WW tonight! Mainly to get the booklets and to buy a few bits, I don't know if I'll go back, it depends on how I do when I weigh myself on Monday (that's still my personal weigh day).

    The new books are great, especially the one with the meal planner for the first week. Here are the meals I've come up with so far:

    Breakfasts
    Weetabix and Raisins - 3 points

    Boiled egg and Soldiers - 3 points

    Porridge and Raisins - 2.5 points

    Egg, Beans, and Toast - 3.5 points

    Cornflakes and Banana - 3 points

    I'll probably have a glass of Orange Juice with all of these - just to help me towards my '5 a Day'.

    Lunches / Light Meals
    Tuna Roll and Apple - 3.5 points

    Ryvitas, Cheese Spread and Banana - 4 points

    Ham Salad, Grapes and Muller Light - 3.5 points

    Beans on Toast - 3 points

    Cheese (spread) and Pickle Sandwiches and Apple - 4.5 points

    With all of these I'll probably add a salad, again to help with the '5 a Day'.

    Dinners
    Roast Chicken, Potatoes, Veg and Gravy - 5 points

    Ham, Mashed Pots, and Beans - 3 points

    Fish Cake, Chips and Beans - 5.5 points

    Cold Chicken, Mash and Beans - 4 points

    Sausage, Mash, Veg and Gravy - 5.5 points

    Jacket Pot, and Tuna (& Mayo) - 4 points

    That looks very good Sparkle:)

    It is great that you are pointing them as I found it difficult enough to find receipes on the internet that had the actually points along side, if any.

    Nice to see food that we all do eat pointed.

    Love Mini xxx

    Hiya Sparkle are these the books you get when you join a meeting is the meal planner one you get which gives you rough ideas for your meals and the points that will help me.
