Thanks, yes I am vegetarian. SW is really good for veggies and since I am always doing green days, I don't have to work out which I am going to do!

Thursday

Breakfast - Wholemeal toast (1HB), Brown sauce (0.5 syn), tinned tomatoes, poached egg.
Lunch - Out at Asda cafe - egg mayo sandwich (1HB 6 syns?), side salad, latte (1HA)
Tea - Pasta and veggie sauce 2 syns, Cheese (0.5HA, 2 syns)
Snacks - Pear, milk in drinks (0.5HA), left over pasta and sauce (1 syn)

My pasta sauce was made with frylite, onions, garlic, mushrooms, courgette, 2.5 tins toms, 14 green olives, 2 tblsp green pesto, 1 tsp paprika, 1 tsp dried basil. I reckon 10 syns for the whole lot, it made about 6 portions - very scrummy :)

Went to aqua aerobics and it was great - my legs haven't felt like my own since!

Friday

Breakfast - Scrambled egg with mushrooms, wholemeal toast (HB) and brown sauce (0.5 syn)
Lunch - cottage cheese, quorn chicken, cucumber, tomatoes, lettuce, sprouting beans, radishes, Muller lite orange flavour, reduced fat salad cream 0.5syns
Snacks - banana, vodka and cherry coke (4 syns?)
Tea- Out at pub - vegetarian enchiladas - came with boiled rice and salad. There was only 1 smallish bread so that would be syns (going to count 6 syns) but I could use the cheese as HB/HA. The veggie sauce may have had some fat in but not much. I only had a tiny bit of the sour cream dip. Oh, but I had 2 glasses of rose wine (8 syns?) oops!

Not to bad though. Probably not over by much. Going to count 20 syns for the day.


No exercise today although taking my little boy for swimming lessons (I go in with him) helped loosen up the muscles from last night! Oh and a 20 min walk too. Slow though as M was eating an ice pop and kept stopping!

Wednesday

Breakfast - 1 slice wholemeal toast (1 HB)
with reduced fat saladcream and a sliver of low low cheese (1 syns, 0.5HB)

Lunch - I was going to buy salad or jacket and cottage cheese at work to go with some quorn beef slices and a mug shot which I brought from home. However.. the canteen had spinich, chick pea and aubergine curry so I had that instead with some boiled rice and my quorn. It was lovely. Not sure how to count it, it may have had a bit of cream or yoghurt in but wasn't at all greasy... will count 6 syns. Going to have an orange muller light yoghurt for pud.

Tea - from the chinese - mushroom curry and boiled rice - will count 10 syns and 2 cans pear cider will count 20 syns. Gosh it was good but I was so full after. Should have saved some for lunch today really.

Snacks - Melon, grapes, blueberries, strawberries. Milk in drinks (1HA), alpen light (I think that is 0.5 HB - will check)

Total syns for the day 38 so far.

Thought I would introduce myself a bit more if anyone is reading. I am 38 and married with a little boy aged 4. My mum lives with us in a grannie annexe and we generally eat together (although sometimes having different things) when I am at home.

My son and I are vegetarian and will generally eat anything so long as it doesn't have meat in. My husband likes most things but doesn't eat beef and my mum likes only plain traditional food.

If I do 'gravy' dinners, Me and M tend to have veggie sausages or quorn and they tend to have meat sausage or chicken. We used to have pies too but that has gone out of the window with the diet lol.

Some days I do something specifically for mum and the 3 of us have pasta/curry/chilli which she won't eat. M has tea at nursery on a Monday and so me an J usually have curry.

Other meals tend to get rotated and include things like fry ups (or boil/grill ups lol), something and chips, jacket spuds, salad, stir fry, things like fajitas (will have to look how to do a sw version - maybe with wholemeal pitta and salad) etc.

Anyway, best get back to work. Hope everyone is having a good day. I haven't done much (ok any) exercise yet this week but am going to a Zumba class tomorrow night for the first time with my best mate which should be interesting!

Thanks. I am slightly scared about Zumba lol! At least I will have moral support :) Good luck with the cross trainer!

Tea last night was chinese takeaway - oops! I had to work late as I was breaking up and then didn't fancy cooking. Also had 2 cans of pear cider - mmm mmm and double oops :)

Just going to work out how to count it all.

Recipe for 1 point soup. Makes 6 portions.

Onions, garlic, courgette, tomatoes, mushrooms, carrots all fried in frylight. Add 2pt veg stock and a tin of chickpeas with the water. Simmer for 15 mins. Add a handfull of small pasta (about 60g), 4 good tsp of pesto and a tin of tomatoes chopped. Cook for another 10 - 15 mins until all veg is cooked. The only syns are the pesto on a green day. This is also nice with a sprinkle of parmaesan which you could count as HB if you wanted.

If you let it stand and warm it up, it might be a bit thick so I tend to add a bit more water if necessary.
