    Ok so started fishy week today, so here is diary..

    Extra Easy
    • Breakfast - Bran flakes(heb), skim milk(hea), chopped banana.
    • Lunch - Jacket potato, salad,Tuna sweetcorn mayo (1 syn), dressing (1syn).
    • Snack - Nectarine, yoghurt, coffee, kellogs fibre plus bar (5.5 syns)
    • Dinner - Spiced Haddock rice (adjusted by ommiting oil and using plain haddock instead of smoked) Recipe below+steamed brocolli, courgettes & carrots. (Turned out quite nice, bit gluggy, I think from using frylight instead of oil, I used chickpeas instead of lentils, purely as this is what I had in cupboard, and stock cubes instead of fresh stock, again for ease... so overall quite nice

    • Snacks - Yoghurt and fruit
    Total syns = 7.5

    Recipe is here -

    That recipe looks nice- was it any good?
    Just wanted to comment to make sure you are getting the 1/3 of fruit or veg at your main meals. Didn't notice any for your dinner.

    Hi
    Thanks for the reply. This is actually what I'm having for dinner tonight so haven't actually cooked yet, well it's on now, so just hadn't decided on salad or veg with it just yet, thinking steamed brocolli and carrots?

    Day 3

    Extra Easy
    • Breakfast - Scrambled Egg, bacon, tinned toms, mushies.
    • Lunch - Smoked Mackeral and salad.
    • Snack - Nectarine, yoghurt.
    • Dinner - Jamie Olivers Spaghetti and Tuna meatballs,(with glass of wine :eek: 6syns) the recipe can be found on the web, but here is a copy to show where I sworldiffied it -
    [FONT=&quot]the best tuna meatballs (le migliori polpette di tonno)[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]main courses | serves 4 [/FONT][FONT=&quot]
    Just about everyone I know is a fan of meatballs, so I thought I’d give you a recipe for these as they are something a little different. I’ve seen them made in Sicily in the same way, using a mixture of swordfish and tuna – not jarred or tinned tuna though. These have to be made with fresh fish and they are subtly seasoned with Sicilian herbs and spices – this recipe is just as good as the meat versions!

    First make your sauce. Place a large pan on the heat, add a good glug of olive oil, your onion and garlic and fry slowly for 10 or so minutes until soft. Add your oregano, the tomatoes, salt and pepper and bring to the boil. Simmer for 15 minutes or so, then liquidize until smooth. Taste – it might need a tiny swig of red wine vinegar or some extra seasoning.

    While the tomatoes are simmering, chop the tuna up into 2.5cm/1 inch dice. Pour a good couple of tablespoons of olive oil into a large frying pan and place on the heat. Add the tuna to the pan with the pinenuts and cinnamon. Season lightly with salt and pepper and fry for a minute or so to cook the tuna on all sides and toast the pinenuts. Remove from the heat and put the mixture into a bowl. Allow to cool down for 5 minutes, then add the oregano, parsley, breadcrumbs, Parmesan, eggs, lemon zest and juice to the bowl. Using your hands, really scrunch and mix the flavours into the tuna, then divide the mixture and squeeze it into meatballs slightly smaller than a golf ball. If you dip one of your hands in water while shaping you’ll get a nice smooth surface on the meatball. If the mixture’s very sticky, add a few more breadcrumbs. Keep the meatballs around the same size and place them on an oiled tray, then put them in the fridge for an hour to let them rest.

    Put the pan you fried the tuna in back on the heat with a little olive oil. Add your meatballs to the pan and jiggle them about until they’re golden brown all over. You might want to do them in batches – when they’re done, add them to the tomato sauce, divide between your plates, sprinkle with chopped parsley and drizzle with good olive oil. Great served with spaghetti or linguine.


    [/FONT][FONT=&quot]ingredients[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]for the tomato sauce
    olive oil – use spray instead
    • 1 small onion, peeled and finely chopped

    for the meatballs
    • 400g/14oz sustainably sourced tuna
    • olive oil - use spray instead
    • 55g/2oz pinenuts – [/FONT][FONT=&quot]20 Syns in total, I left out them out or use half the amount for 10 syns?[/FONT][FONT=&quot]

    • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
    • a handful of fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
    • 100g/3½oz stale breadcrumbs – [/FONT][FONT=&quot]This worked out as two slices of brown medium loaf bread, so you could use that or swap for ww Danish? So that it could be healthy extra. 8 syns total.[/FONT][FONT=&quot]

    • 2 eggs
