I am so annoyed with myself. My intention was to plan every week because I know it will reap it’s rewards both in lbs lost on the scale at Slimming World and £’s kept in my purse. If I had a purse. Which I do not. I am too disorganised.
So long story short, half term happened and I didn’t meal plan. We ventured down to see the in laws. This involved an array of off plan meals and I put on weight and am now poor. So now that you are up to date, let’s head back to what I blimmin’ well know will work and get on with the plan! I foresee a lot of salad in my immediate future…
The Week Ahead in Food
Friday: Low syn Tuna salad followed by a gorgeous low syn lemon Jello dessert.
Saturday: Ham and egg salad with a large bowl of melon.
Sunday: Roast chicken with syn free stuffing and vegetables
Monday: Piri chicken breast with a dressed salad and a baked sweet potato.
Tuesday: Spaghetti bolognese and garlic dough balls. The Asda ones are 1 syn each.
Wednesday: Butternut squash stew with bulgar wheat (pictured) as part of my commitment to cutting down on the amount of meat we consume.
Thursday: Diet coke chicken with noodles and stir fried veg.
Breakfast will be a mix of porridge, fruit or bacon medallions and veg (courgettes, mushrooms, tomatoes). Lunches will be mainly salads and I will also make a big pot of syn free soup to have alongside and for snacking. I am determined to have a better week foodwise. I have to really!
On the upside, I am feeling positive about taking control of things again. I have started to understand that I need to make this a priority for not only my physical health but my mental health too. Does that sound odd?
