    If you are on one of the Exante plans that include food, put your menu on this thread. It will help give all us Exantettes ideas and inspirations. ;)

    I am doing WS at the moment and today's menu will be:

    B/fast - Shake
    Lunch - Soup
    Dinner - Chicken stuff with low fat cream cheese and a HUGE salad
    Snack - Shake, one chopped apple.

    Good thread Gaynor. I did promise to start one, but didn't get around to it.

    I am on the Simple Solution now, so am on 1200 cals per day combining packs with food.

    Today I will be having:

    B: Home made muesili. I will put the recipe on when I get time.
    L: Soup
    D: Salmon with stir fried garlic and chili veggies
    Snacks: Low fat natural yoghurt with fruit and a bar

    Cream cheese isn't on the plan, unless you are on the simple solution.

    Today I have had:

    B: Home made muesili
    L: Cranberry bar
    D: Chicken, veg and 50g of vermicelli in garlic and loads of chilli - it was yum!
    Snacks: Yoghurt.

    It was the first time I have had any kind of real carbs, so lets see if it affects me. I am kind of doing the healthy solution now as not getting my 3 packs down. Still sticking to 1200 cals and today i have done 2 hours of dog walking, so burnt of nearly 600 cals! Yay.

    My menu today is

    B: Home made muesili with a few fresh blueberries
    L: Tomato and basil soup
    Snack: 4 x dried prunes
    D: Salmon with cabbage and courgette stir fry
    Snack: natural yoghurt and a few strawberries

    Gaynor, if you want to sweeten the chocolate up a bit, add a splenda tablet. That will increase the flavour also.

    Thank you I will try that...I don't mind it not being sweet, it is just very bland. But then I am a chocoholic so maybe I am just being fussy.
    I only have three left so I might try the next one with half a teaspoon of decaf coffee, it might make a nice mocha type drink.
    I will let you know if it is vile or nice...no point in other people wasting their shakes...the price of them. :eek:

    Does anyone know how to cook prawns from raw? How long do they need in the wok? I overcooked them once before and they were like bullets! Haha!

    Sorry...I use the pre-cooked ones. I just soak them in water for six hours before hand to remove as much salt as poss.

    I use raw ones. I just cook them for a few mins max. Until they turn pink. If the curl right up, then they are cooked too much. I stir fry my veggies and then throw the king prawns in at the last minute.

    Hi DM, the best way i have found is in a very hot wok for about 3-4 minutes, you can add some soy or tabasco if needed. If you are using a non stick pan then its fine too, if not then use a small spray of the spray oil. Hope it helps Em xxx

    Yep quick and fast on the prawns. As soon as they go pink they are ready to eat.

    On the muesli, I forgot to say that you can add anything you want to it. Any nuts, seeds or fruit. It's best if you add the cals when you make it, as different things will change the cal value.

    If i am in the mood for it sweet, I add a teaspoon of splenda. But generally I just add a few fresh blueberries and it's fine as it is. I am going to try it with other fresh fruits in it now that the summer fruits are in season.
