Slimming World friendly meal planning – Our menu 24/05/19

Well. It’s all gone horribly wrong. In the words of a favourite meme of mine; Not only have the wheels fallen off, I have burnt down the cart and used the insurance money to buy cupcakes.

I have been steadily gaining rather than losing lbs. Not due to the meals on my planner but the bloody snacking! Still, at least all of the Easter chocolate is now gone. Finally!

I am having another retinal bleed so blurry eyesight means a lot less chopping and prep and a LOT more grab and go. I am determined that I am going to push through though. In fact I need to.

The plan is to plan- and stick to it. What do you do when you feel your willpower slipping?

This week in food

Friday: My lovely Stepmum is cooking for me so MrG and the kids have pie and veg

Saturday: Nandos style butterfly chicken breast with mediterranean rice (frozen from aldi 1.5syns per portion) and salad.

Sunday: Roast Pork, honey glazed roasted parsnips and carrots with brussel sprouts and mash.

Monday: Lamb koftas with salad and flatbread

Tuesday: Sausages and chips and beans.

Wednesday: Salmon with baby sweetcorn, and green beans* and jersey royal potatoes*

Thursday: Chicken pesto pasta and pea shoot salad

*included in the Aldi super six this week. keeps the costs down

Breakfasts: Trying to keep the expenditure to a minimum because it’s half term and frankly I would rather spend the dosh on having some fun with the children. With that in mind breakfast will be mainly porridge and fruit (I have a stash of frozen sweet cherries so I can add those to my porridge)

Lunches: I am going to try to make lots of hard boiled eggs and salads this week. The weather looks well suited for it and they are easy enough to make a take on days out.

    I love checking out your blog and the meals here all sound so lush. Take your hand out of the cookie jar now, and keep to the plan. I need to tell myself that too! I was shocked when I saw how big my face, neck and breasts lookked on TV last night.

    Girl, we can do this together. Sending you all the best wishes for a lovely week ahead.
    ps I’ve never tried lamb koftas. Do you make it yourself?

    Snacking is so hard to keep under control, keep going and sorry to hear about the retinal bleed hope your doing ok. I have to be very very determnined and some times its easier said than done. Your meals sound lovely and i love sausgaes, chips and beans

    So sorry that you’re suffering again. Poor you! Sounds like it must be so debilitating. I personally buy a lot of my vegetables already prepared, and frozen, to save both time and effort. So that might be an idea for you? I can’t stop snacking either. I REALLY want to do better this year…! Somehow it is June an I’ve lost 2.5kg all year.

    Your meals for this week sound delicious. Hope you have a great week.

    So sorry to hear about your eyes. It’s hard losing weight, I have given up now, but I still try to eat healthier. I love the look of your lamb koftas.

    Oh no! Sorry the weight loss isn’t going too well. I am sure you’ll get back on top of it soon.
    All of your meals sound delicious! Good luck x

    Oh no its just a blip, you will get back on it and get going again.

    Those kofta’s look delicious, do you make them or buy them in?

    I’m terrible for snacking too – I think I could have just one biscuit but end up having four or five. Your meal plan sounds lovely though – I do love lamb koftas.
