This week’s meal plan is really late! The reason it is late is that we had three days away doing all kinds of amazing and interesting things and only got back late yesterday afternoon. Three days of eating three course meals and cream teas are likely to mean I have put on a few pounds. So back to Slimming World in this week’s plan.
I will do a separate blog post (or even two) on where we have been and what we have been up to. It was a very busy few days but we had a brilliant time.
I am also on a quest to use up some stuff from the freezer as it desperately needs defrosting. However, it is jam packed! A lot of it isn’t Slimming World friendly either.
Back to Slimming World meal plan
Prawn and vegetable stir fry and rice. The prawns, french beans and broccoli that will go in this are all from the freezer, along with loads of vegetables that need to be eaten from the fridge. I am not buying more of anything until I have used it all up as I hate food waste.
Spinach frittata as there is a big bag of spinach from last week’s shop that needs to be eaten. I will put chopped red pepper and some low fat cheddar allowance in this. We have salad leaves ready in the greenhouse and fresh parsley so I will make up a home grown green salad to go with this.
Salmon from the freezer with new potatoes, carrots and peas. This will all be free on my back to Slimming World meal plan, although I might make a parsley sauce to go with it using my dairy allowance.
I am still working my way through the Simply Cook boxes that I got. One came as a £1 introductory offer and then I forgot to cancel my subscription and got two more! They are actually pretty good and make very tasty dinners, but it’s much cheaper to cook for yourself. Good if you are in a hurry though! I will make nyonya, which is a curry with new potatoes and green beans. I will use peas to help clear the freezer. It contains coconut milk, which is quite high fat, but I am substituting this with a reduced fat version.
Chick pea curry from the freezer with rice. I need something quick and easy as it is my official leaving party from work. It was over a month ago that I actually left, but as several of us were going we decided to have one big do. It will be lovely to see everyone.
Another Simply Cook recipe tonight, jambalaya! It should have chicken and chorizo in it, but I am going to leave the chorizo out as it is too fatty. We will have more of our home grown salad leaves and chopped tomatoes with this dish. Honestly, I am not sure how many Syns this will contain, but I will use Frylight instead of the oil they suggest and hope their spice boxes don’t contain too much oil.
We have loads of peas in the freezer for some reason, so I will make some of my mum’s easy pea soup as well.
I am happy to get back to Slimming World. The plan is very good and you can eat a lot as long as you stick to the rules. I have lost half a stone very easily. Because of this trip and our holiday to France my weight loss has stalled so I need to make lots of effort to lose the second half a stone and get to my target. Meal planning is super important in this respect, as well as saving money, of course.
