    Hey. I'm still new to Slimming World, so still getting my head around the food. Started on 14th Sept.

    I'm doing Extra Easy at the moment. Any comments on my diary are welcome. I have a severe hatred of vegetables, but do like salad veg and fruits.

    Day one:

    Weetabix and skimmed milk - A & B
    Potato waffles - 7 syns (i had a craving!)
    1/2 tin baked beans
    Tomato sauce - 1 syn
    Apple
    Pasta
    Sauce made with 1/2 green pepper, onion, tinned tomatoes, herbs, seasoning and fry light

    Only in the evening did i realise this was pretty much a green day, so i could have had another A & B

    Following your other thread I thought I'd pop in and say hi!
    If you want a bit of inspiration you're welcome to take a look at my food diary (link on my signature).
    I've been a bit off track over the last month but starting a new diary tomorrow to get me back on plan...

    Was thinking about different veggies you could try if you haven't already:
    - Butternut squash - gorgeous roasted with some chilli flakes or made into a soup
    - Baby corn and mange touts in stir fries
    - Different types of mushroom - either grilled and stuffed whole, sauteed, or used in a sauce
    - Roasted peppers (they take on a completely different flavour to when they're fried)
    - Spinach - sauteed with some garlic and spring onions and a splash of wine and knob of butter if you've got syns to spare

    Will try and think of some more...

    I must admit, i don't hate all veg, just the ones i consider horrid! Butternut squash i love roasted, sweet potatoes, parsnips, spinach i use in sauces and in home made curries, and i do like peppers either raw or roasted. I will be stepping up my salad veg eating, but im currently in the middle of chaos!

    You'll do fine then if you like that much veg!!
    Definitely planning is key - I really struggle if I haven't planned all my meals for the week as I don't often get to the shops during the week so try to do it all on a Saturday.

    I look forward to having another diary to read...

    Mmmm.... your homemade Chinese sounds yummy and yes it could have been so much worse - you could have had a takeaway!!
    Were the sauces ready-made or did you make yourself? I tend to just use sweet chilli sauce (1.5syns a tbsp) for my Chinese sauces, but should really venture out and try something different...

    I normally make them, but due to having *no* time to cook, i used ready made. Synned the whole jar/pack, then divided by my portion (which looking back, was a teeny amount).

    Day 6:

    Shreddies
    Milk - A & B

    Pasta
    2 tbsp salsa - 1
    1/2 tbsp light mayo - 1

    mug shot

    250ml white wine - 8.5
    pizza (eeek!) - 35

    Ok, so i won't be having pizza again! But, Tuesday is 'treat night', so i guess it's not so bad. Also, did about an hour at the gym, covering about 3-4 miles (feeling it today!)

    Not looking forward to today (22nd), 12 hour day of work ahead. Supposed to go to the gym, but working 8am-midnight, with 4 hours off in the middle, and i would rather spend those 4 hours having a bit of a kip, then walking round the town getting bits and pieces. It's a form of exercise! Plus, i can get tasty bits for meals, such as Simply Salmon, parsnips, and whatever fruit is on the market stalls!

    Your 12 hr shift sounds nasty!! Good you're finding time to eat proper food and fit SW into your shifts.
    Have you had your WI? Just wondered how your first week went!

    I work from home as an internet researcher, so my hours may seems REALLY long, but i guess it ain't so bad when your at home! Also means that i can eat/cook what i want, no relying on getting food when out :eek:)
