I am trying to do EE (I did say trying right?) anyhoo, made a lovely lasagna last night, used passata, lean mince and dolmio lasagna sauce, nothing wrong with that right, how wrong was I. Could not believe the syns when I checked in the white sauce (after I had wolfed it down and accidentally used 2 jars ). How should I have made it so it was SW friendly?
Also please tell me, what mistakes you have made? So A) I feel better and B) I don't do the same
Don't worry - it's such a lot to learn when you're starting off. I'm sure it won't make that much difference to your weightloss over the course of a week.
I haven't done slimming world for over a year (but previously had done it on and off for a long time), but generally I found that anything in a jar will be higher in syns than something you've made from scratch yourself.
I got this off the SW website. If you're not signed up you may not be able to look at it. Basically it says use 500g fat free yoghurt mixed with 2 eggs in place of the white sauce, and a sprinkling of parmesan on top. The recipe also uses lots of extra veg.
I've only been on it a week (1st weigh in today) and am trying to be really scrupulous so no mistakes yet I think! Good luck
Oh Wow debka, that's an amazing loss. Tell me, tell me, what did you eat . I have vowed not to go near the scales, for a while anyway. I am moving house shortly and will join the SW group near the new house when we are settled in. I am pleased to shout and scream from the rooftops though, that I got in a smaller size jeans this morning (yipppeeee).
Just tried a cheese pasta mugshot for lunch, only 2 syns, really yummy and quite filling. I have tried the noodles one also which are lush.
i gained 1.5 lbs this week-so gutted, then discovered that the flora spray oil is not free (i usually buy the fry light but this was substituted in the shopping delivery) that's the only thing i did wrong, I was gutted but having a good week this week (bought some fry light) and hoping to lose what I gained last week and get back on track.
other mistakes I have made-didn't realise not all mullerlites are free, the cheescake flavours are 1 syn, rhubarb is half a syn, banana custard is 1 syn. the mango and the peach ones are half a syn. I also didn't know you can make syn free soups with veg and stock. great for filling up on between meals.
