Really enjoyed my green day today! Everything I made was delicious and I enjoyed my lovely syns too: I broke a big bar of Galaxy choc into squares and froze it. Squares worked out at 2.5 syns for two: I had 10 squares throughout the day, and because they were frozen they lasted longer.
Latte made with 200ml skimmed milk (HEA with the other 150ml used in coffee throughout the day)
Hifi bar (HEB)
"Orange soup" (made with veg which needed using up, roasted in Fry Light and then whizzed with stock: small butternut squash, small pumpkin, sweet potato, carrot, fresh ginger, garlic, red onion, with pearl barley, macaroni and lentils added at the end to make it chunky)
Wholemeal roll (HEB)
Two WeightWatchers fruit yogurts
Hartleys jelly pot (0.5 syns)
Quorn spaghetti bolognese (Quorn mince, courgettes, carrots, green beans, onion, garlic, passata, herbs, spaghetti)
HEA choice cheese in two parts (three Laughing Cow Extra Light cheese triangles mixed in with the bolognese sauce and 21g of low fat cheddar on top)
Mixed fruit salad with WeightWatchers peach yogurt on top (overdone the yogurts a bit today!)
2 x Ryvita crackerbreads with Quorn ham on top (2 syns)
10 squares Galaxy choc from a 125g bar (12.5 syns)
food today looks lovely and not too much i dont think, ive eaten more than that today and am worried ive ruined my chances of a weight loss. this is my first week back on plan having tried it for 2 weeks a few months ago. im enjoying it so far, are you?
Thanks for the feedback guys! I am really enjoying it so far - which just makes me paranoid I can't be losing weight! But we will see after my WI on Monday.
MrsWilsoncroft: I think I do eat a fair amount of veg, I usually have salad or other superfree veg with lunch and tea, but yesterday I put loads in the soup (two squashes, large carrot, large onion) and in the spag bol (two courgettes, a large carrot, large onion, tin of green beans and carton of passata) so I didn't have any on the side. Normally I would have more fruit too, but I've managed to eat it all (and I bought loads during my shop at the weekend!).
Latte made with 200ml skimmed milk (HEA with rest in coffee throughout the day)
Chickpea puree couscous and salad
WeightWatchers raspberry yogurt
Hartleys jelly pot (0.5 syns)
Veg curry (potatoes, carrot, onion, pile of cabbage, spinach, green beans, puy lentils, sauce made with passata and spices)
Mixture of white and brown boiled rice
Snack attack today! Not much fruit in so had to improvise.
Orange soup with bread roll (HEB - got hungry mid-morning so finished off rest of my soup from two days ago)
Potato shells and cottage cheese (instead of peeling potatoes for my curry, I cut them in half and scooped balls out with a melon baller then cooked the empty shells and had as a snack filled with cottage cheese)
10 squares of Galaxy (12.5 syns - starting to regret ever buying this now, far too moreish!)
175ml dry white wine (6 syns)
2 x Alpen Light bars (HEB)
Huuuuge fruit salad that kept me full for ages (melon balls, kiwi balls, strawberries, grapes, banana, clementine)
WeightWatchers strawberry tart yogurt on top
Vegetable and ginger soup (In this were carrots, onions, potato, sweet potato, courgette)
Portion of leftover curry and rice
Handful of grapes with low-fat natural yogurt on top, served in the scooped-out melon shell I balled earlier
2 x salmon fillets
Parsley sauce from a SW recipe in the Super Saucy book (2 syns for a double helping)
Veg roasted with fresh rosemary (aubergine, courgette, parsnip - not superfree I know so had less of it)
350ml skimmed milk in coffee and tea (HEA)
2 x squares of Galaxy (2.5 syns)
White wine (6 syns for one 175ml glass - so far!)
Total: 10.5 syns (though probably a few more when I finish with the wine! Still have 20 left to last till Tuesday, as counting weekly)
