You know, when you're out of syns or haven't been shopping? I've just eaten a mug shot and once all the noodles had gone I stirred in Smash to eke out the last third of liquid! I've had a jacket potato with mushy peas and a poached egg. I'll also eat cheese triangles on their own if I have an 'a' choice to use up, even though I'm not hungry. This diet works for me but seriously, I would never eat like this normally grin

Sweet and sour mugshot on a bed of savoury rice. Was a green day.

Ha ha, carbs ahoy! I love that you say 'on a bed of'. I have many meals on a bed of Smash.

What's a mugshot? I quite like a bowl of Batchelors savoury rice with cottage cheese smile

A mugshot is a bit like a cup a soup but with noodles or pasta in it. Not the yummiest thing but most of them are free so they are a good cupboard staple. My dinner last night was 4 Ryvitas, cheese triangles and tinned sardines in tomato sauce confused

when I did SW one of my easy filling CBA meals/snacks was sainsbos instant mash, which is nicer than smash IMHO with cottage cheese and a healthy A of grated cheese stirred in.

my husband has a jacket potato with cottage cheese and mushy peas/baked beans!!!!!
ive had the jacket with mushy peas and a fried egg, which is nice, and to be fair the same as having egg, chips and mushy peas, so not that weird really. although i have to agree that i don't think i would eat normally how i eat on the plan.

Ha!! Its not just me then.... I often have Pasta, baked beans and bacon before going shopping on a Thursday!!!

This thread caught my attention as I'm considering slimming world. Never done it before but found out there is a class 2 minutes from my house.

Can any of you give me a basic idea of what you eat on SW? When your cupboards aren't bare that is! grin

on extra easy plan (EE) you can have Fish, lean meat and chicken,pasta, rice, potato, fresh vegetables and fruit and you can use things like fat free yoghurt and passata to make sauces etc. You also get healthy extras and syns. It is a good plan but you have to be prepared to cook most meals from scratch.

YourHandInMyHand Fri 28-Jun-13 13:51:43

Thanks for quick reply smile

Does extra easy mean I don't have to worry about certain coloured days then? It sounds promising. I tend to cook from scratch anyway but need to get back to more healthy eating and a LOT less snacking!

glenthebattleostrich Fri 28-Jun-13 13:59:32

Nope, extra easy does what it says on the tin!! It really is the easiest plan I've ever done. I have been known to cheat and still loose at least a lb on it per week. I'm .5lb off 1.5 stone now smile It is a really good health eating plan.

Today for lunch I had scan bran (ryvita type cardboard thing) with mackerel in tomato sauce and a salad of grapes, apple and tomato. It was actually delicious.

whoknowswho Fri 28-Jun-13 16:56:35

I agree glenthebattleostrich, I tried years ago the red and green plan and really couldn't get my head around it but extra easy really is extra easy. I have lost every week since I started and sometimes I really have a bad week (with wine and chocolate creeping in) but still got half a pound off on the scales because I stick to the plan for all my meals and save the syns in case I fall off the wagon!! lol I have lost 12lb so far in 6 weeks.

YourHandInMyHand Fri 28-Jun-13 21:41:09

Okay sounds fab, will be wobbling to my local meeting on Monday - thanks ladies! grin

LastTangoInDevonshire Fri 12-Jul-13 22:38:25

YourHandInMyHand - I, too, am starting SW next Tuesday. I need to lose about 2 1/2 stone. From what I've read there is more food on the diet than I would normally eat in a day - so we will see! I am mainly vegetarian with a bit of chicken thrown in occasionally.

The problem I have is that, due to medical reasons, I am unable to do any exercise. I can walk about 100 yards slowly. My Advisor says that this doesn't matter and that I WILL lose weight!!

Chocolate banana porridge. Only works if you have HEs left, but basically oats, milk, a low syn hot chocolate sachet and a banana chopped up and stirred through. This has saved me eating my way through the biscuit tin several times but there is truly no way it would ever have occurred to me, or appealed, pre-SW!

Mushy pea curry and diet coke chicken. My husband lived both recipes but the whole thing just strikes me as bizarre!

JimmyCorkhill Tue 12-Nov-13 21:49:38

Mushy pea curry? That sounds...differentgrin

NoForkNKnife Tue 12-Nov-13 21:55:36

Had diet coke chicken tonight! Bloody lovely. grin.

I tend to stick to the free foods so lots of veg stir fried with rice add paprika or plenty of garlic and herbs so it's tasty. Not full of chemicals from crappy foods like mugshots. Dont get me wrong a good food/work standby but id rather have veggies or fruit and no fat yogurt (dont like muller lights or other free flavoured yogurts)

Our SW meal plan thus week:

Chicken & veg casserole
Spag Bol

iklboo can I come and stay with you? grin

Darkesteyes Wed 13-Nov-13 23:48:08

I have a boiled egg in a Mugshot to bulk it up

JimmyCorkhill Thu 14-Nov-13 15:20:17

Just dropped in the cup? Or mashed up?

iklboo Thu 14-Nov-13 22:54:14
