As Promised from my first week of getting a grip, below is my weekly food plan that I have done each day to make sure I put exactly what I ate. For drinks I am a bore and tend to stick to the same so it was a mixture of black coffee, herbal teas, diet pop, fruit barley water and water. All free of course so didn’t need to add them to my syn allowance each day.
Breakfast was orange, grapefruit and pomegranate fruit salad with 1 salted caramel hifi bar
Lunch was 2 slices of wholemeal toast with tuna and onion mayonnaise with 1 apple (2 syns for mayo. I use lighter than light mayo) and 1 hifi bar (3syns)
Dinner was Chicken satay with egg fried rice. (3 syns for the peanut butter – my own recipe you can find on here)
Snacks: 2 apples and 2 squares of Cadbury medley chocolate 93g bar
Total syn count: 13 syns
Breakfast was a big cooked breakfast (2 turkey bacon rashers, 1 low fat sausage, scrambled eggs, 2 homemade cheese and onion hash browns, plum tomatoes, mushrooms and a spoonful of beans) served with 2 slices of wholemeal toast (400g sized loaf). This massive breakfast was only 1/2 syn for my sausage – I did cook myself 2 sausages like a greedy git bit couldn’t manage it.
Lunch didn’t happen as I was busy out doing food shop, etc that’s why I had a big breakfast.
Dinner was Thai Green Chicken Curry with coconut & lime rice with savoy cabbage. (1 1/2 syns per portion but I added an extra syn to allow for me tasting along the way with cooking, to protect my weightloss)
Snacks: 1 ice lolly (Lidl Hurricane ice lolly only 4 syns) and 2 coconut yoghurt’s
Total syn count: 7 syns
Breakfast was another cooked breakfast only this time no sausages but everything else was the same as above. And guess what it’s all frickin free on Slimming World.
Lunch was strawberries and pear fruit salad with coconut yoghurt (Lidl’s Milbona fat free range)
Dinner was potato and leek soup.
Snacks: pickles and another Hurricane ice lolly (4 syns).
Total syn count: 4 syns
