Cooking for slimming

As it is a no running day I have had time to prep a couple of bits for us to eat over the next few days, tonight will be chicken korma and pillau rice, for tomorrow’s brunch I made some fresh ‘bubble & squeak’ and then a couple of ‘cheesy, potatoes and bacon bits’ dish.

Just waiting on some Gummy Bears (for the grandkids) and some larger jelly sweets to set.

Today’s food

Started the morning with my daily dose of Overnight Oats

At lunch myself and Vicky had a full English brunch with:
SW sausage, bacon (fat cut off), baked beans, potato slices and a dry fried egg.

Evening meal is a chicken curry (SW friendly) with rice. Made by cooking some chicken and onions in the wok and adding a tub of Slimming World Spicy Tikka Masala sauce, nice but not as hot as the 2 chilli label would have you believe.  one-chilli

 

Treats and Extras  2 x HiFi bars and a brown Sandwich Thin.

Food for the day

Today’s menu

Breakfast as per normal Overnight Oats, just got to love them.

Lunch, I tried a Noodle Omelette and have to say that it was not my thing so wont be having it again.

Evening I had crackerwheat crackers and fish sticks with baby plum tomatoes.

Had 3 x Hi Fi bars as treats and made sure I had some fruit during the day

Weigh in night

Weighed in at Slimming World only to find that for the third week in a row my weight had maintained at my target weight. I have now requested that our consultant ‘Claire’ resets my target to 12 stone 10 lb and see how I go and maybe I will even try and reach the 12.5 stone mark, which can only be good for my running BUT that will be the lowest I go.
