I always enjoy these as it gives me new ideas.

So today I have had
Breakfast- Skyr yogurt with raspberries and blueberries, Dorset cereals sugar free muesli (Hex)
Lunch- jacket potato with homemade coleslaw and salad.
Tea- ‘pizza topped’ chicken with sweet potato ‘chips’ and more salad with free French dressing. (Hex cheese)
Snack- carrot sticks and a salt and vinegar rice cake. (1.5s)
I will have a couple of glasses of wine later.

Dinner - Chicken Fried Rice - Chicken, Rice, peas, corn, onion, peppers, soy sauce
Snacks - Grapes, Melon
Still got a HEA but not drinking brews I sometimes struggle to have both

Oooh your lunch is a good idea. Thank you.

I can never manage to make fried rice. It just ends up grey and mushy when I try it.

I wondered about choc shot when I saw it in Aldi last week and forgot to search for it. Good to know that it’s quite low in syns.

Hey! I'm two weeks in to SW. So still getting my head round it all.

Breakfast -strawberries, melon and half a banana smoothie on water base
Lunch -egg and mushroom bake with chopped salad. Fat free yoghurt with teaspoon of harissa.
Dinner -jacket potato, fat free cottage cheese and baked beans

Snacks
Moo frozen yoghurt ice lolly 1.5 syns
Laughing cow light (healthy a) on cracker 1.5 syns

WinkyisbackontheButterBeer Fri 26-Apr-19 21:27:50

The Aldi chipolatas sound good too. I usually have the Linda McCartney rosemary ones but a change would be nice.
I slipped up a couple of weeks ago and bought the Morrisons Italian chicken ones which turned out to be much higher.

The aldi ones are very nice. I have the Linda McCartney ones in the freezer so will give them a go at some point.

Breakfast: punch of nom blueberry and lemon baked oats HEB
Lunch: scrambled egg, tinned tomatoes, bacon and heck sausage.
Tea: Steak, asparagus and sweet potatoes

HEA milk and baby bell cheese
Snacks: fish sticks, cherry toms and cucumber
Three x double whiskey

WinkyisbackontheButterBeer Fri 26-Apr-19 21:36:58

I am working from old books so still only have one heA. I am going it alone as I can’t get to classes. I lost 2 stone a few years ago but put it all back on when I had dd.

Do you find that you still have the same losses having 2 heA?
Is it still the same amounts but 2 of them?
Some days it would be nice to have the option to have cheese as well as milk.

I would rather have 2 HeB choices though.

@WinkyisbackontheButterBeer I prefer the Lentil Curry Heinz Creationz (and it's free) but they're both ok really!
For chicken fried rice, i cook the chicken first (or buy ready cooked), then I do all the veg in a pan while the rice is cooking, strain and pour boiling water over. Chuck it straight in stir round, add soy sauce and chicken and serve pretty much immediately. Just checked it as I've left overs and it's cooled fine too. Lush with Mayflower Curry Sauce (like chippy curry sauce) 4.5 Syns per serving

Sforsh49 Fri 26-Apr-19 21:38:36

@ARTLV if your turning fruit into smoothies I THINK (don't quote me but I'm 99% sure) you need to Syn it......

Sforsh49 Fri 26-Apr-19 21:39:59

@WinkyisbackontheButterBeer you get more milk with the HEA now. Weight losses are fine. If you need anything synning let me know I'll check it for you 👍

WinkyisbackontheButterBeer Fri 26-Apr-19 21:41:01

Thank you so much. I am getting so many good ideas from this.
Those baked oats look really good. I am definately going to give them a go.

ARTLV Fri 26-Apr-19 21:41:43

@Sforsh49 ah I didn't know that! Thank you for letting me know.
Just to double check- would it have syns even if nothing is added to the fruit? It's only ice and fruit blended.
Thanks again

WinkyisbackontheButterBeer Fri 26-Apr-19 21:41:48

Sforsh49 Thank you. That’s really kind.

Yes you do sin fruit in smoothies.

You have the same amount in each hex a, im still losing. I reached target a few weeks ago so get 2 hex b choices as well now, however im going to drop my target weight so will lose one when i do.

WinkyisbackontheButterBeer Fri 26-Apr-19 21:43:59

I think that the fruit in smoothies needs to be synned too. It always seems silly as I would have eaten it anyway but assume that it is something to do with the time taken to break down or how long it keeps you full.

Porridge pot breakfast (technically syns but I’m a rebel without a cause and still count it as my hexb)
Raspberries and banana

Lunch: jacket potato, small amount of cheese (hex a), tomato, cucumber, beetroot.

Dinner: chicken, onions, peppers, passata, spinach and spices. 2 thins (4.5 syns each)

Tiny less choc than a Freddo Easter egg so counting as 4.5syns approx.

Snacks: 2 satusumas

Drinks: black tea and water

Sforsh49 Fri 26-Apr-19 21:47:16

@ARTLV yes you have to Syn it, it's explained here. It's a minefield to begin with but if you've been loosing then carry on,just pop some Syns down, it's working for you 😊
