Strawberry Cheesecake Serves 6, 6 syns a slice. 100g ginger nut biscuits 25g butter, melted 275g strawberries Tub of quark Tub of fat free fromage frais Sweetener Put the… Read More Slimming World Dinner Party: Dessert – Strawberry Cheesecake

Sausage Casserole Serves 2, 3 syns each 6 low fat sausages 2 tins chopped tomatoes 2 sticks of celery, chopped 2 carrots, chopped 1 onion, chopped 400ml vegetable stock Chopped rosemary, 1 tsp… Read More Slimming World Dinner Party: Main – Sausage Casserole
Willpower. That’s all it takes really. Unfortunately that’s not something I have in abundance! Last Saturday we went to our friends’ brilliantly organised party, which included a table full of delectable cheese and pastry based goodies. With all the best intentions, we had a minute steak, swede mash and spinach dinner before going to the… Read More Nutella Peanut Butter Weetabix Muffins
This year I have decided to stop paying for the privilege of getting up at the crack of dawn to get sweaty with a host of city workers and blow dry my hair in-sync with half a dozen scantily clad women. Millions of people’s ultimate dream I’m sure! Although in recent weeks (read: months) the… Read More I Wanna Quit The Gym!
Warning, this post contains very little Slimming World foodstuffs! I have been consciously “off-plan” (read: eating and drinking bad, delicious food to excess) since the heady, early days of December, with all the twinkly lights and multiple renditions of cheesy Christmas songs. The consequential impact on my slimming has been fairly dire, yet not catastrophic.… Read More Ski Sunday
Bloody love Christmas. No feeling is comparable to Christmas. From mid December, every day feels like the last day of term, when the only items on the syllabus are watching videos and colouring in dot-to-dot Rudolphs. All other rules go straight out the window and it is acceptable to do things that, for the other 351 days of… Read More Merry Twixmas (almost time to get Back on Plan)!
Perfect with a cup of coffee on a Sunday afternoon…. I have mentioned that before I started Slimming World, I was more of a “burnt-toast, let’s-go-to-Dominoes” kind of girl. Now I make cake! Cake! And also that cake is 5.5 syns, so ideal as a SW treat. Serves 12. From the SW website. Ingredients 110g… Read More Carrot & Orange Cake
I’ve been very quiet on here recently… August and September were a whirlwind of hen dos, weddings, a few business trips and a delicious week in the Majorcan sun. Which has meant that my Slimming World Journey has slowed down rather dramatically. I am desperate to get back on the “Food Optimising” wagon, but Life (read:… Read More Homemade Scotch Eggs
Sundays are the Ultimate Day. Having one of those Monday to Friday, 9 to 5 (ish) jobs means that when I wake up on Sunday morning, I can work this day to perfection, using the time however I want! This morning started off with thirty minutes of “yoga”. For anyone who knows me, this must be… Read More Magic Pancakes
We all have to have a “treat” meal every now and then. I have been chained to my desk recently, studying for today’s exam. On the way home, I felt fairly exhausted and the lure of the chippie / Chinese takeaway was calling… Somehow managed to resit, what helped was knowing I had 2 cod… Read More Fake Fish & Chips
