    Hi all..... hope your all having a lovely sunday!

    what do you have on your sunday roast?
    I am cooking beef and doing low fat mashed potato , carrots, sprouts, cabbage, and green beans all steamed gravy and yorkshires.. now I know yorkshires are a no no but one small one is what I shall have as I am trying to eat a few more calories than previous.. (dont think I was eating enough to lose weight) ugh:cry:

    so what you all doing for dinner today and if your having a roast how do you make it more healthy???:)

    I supposed it depends on what diet you're doing as to what's allowed. i adore roast potatoes, but they are a complete no no for me as they are loaded with carbs.

    I have meat, usually chicken or pork.
    A small scoop of mashed potato, or a few little roasties (my OH does them with frylite).
    Loads of veg.
    I have to top it off with gravy... I have an addiction!!!

    I like making a meatloaf and have it with sprouts, veg mash, peas, cauliflower etc and a little gravy.

    The meatloaf is low fat pork sausagemeat, sage & onion stuffing (dry) garlic and minced veg (mushrooms, onions, courgette etc) mixed all together and baked in the oven.

    I also like having chicken or ham with the usual veg and one or two fry light roasties.

    I have meat - usually chicken or lamb with a small spoonful of saute potatoes and lots of veg and either mint or apple sauce (I'll eat apple sauce with anything lol). Me and OH are not huge fans of gravy so we tend not to make it at all.

    I sooooooo want a roast now :)

    Diet:
    Slimming magazine club. Out of date now but this diet worked for me in the past.
    I do have a couple of roasties (my allowed 5oz) but made with 1 cal spray. I also allow the meat juices to go cold and take any fat off it before I make the gravy.
