Is it just me or are you getting fed up of dieting now? And I cheat a lot too

Typical day is

(Nimble) toast and marg for B'fast 2 points
WW Meal or similar for lunch 6 points ish
Salad with cold meat, bread and cup a soup for dinner 4 points ish

That comes to 12 points and gives me 5 or 6 points to play with during the day, usually have some fruit, a cereal bar, baked potato, bowl of cereals that sort of thing

But I am so bored of it now! I'm no great shakes in the kitchen so I can't whip up glorious low cal food in a jiffy either...

Come on, tell me what your typical days grub is, I might be able to steal some of it! I'd kill for a pizza right now

I've only been doing this for 5 days, and I'm bored already Lisa!

I quite like cooking, and so does dh and he's doing WW, so we tend to cook quite a bit: - loads of veggies, tuna steaks, soups, 'pointless' sauces to go on meat or pasta .. that sort of thing.

I also like a big plate of salad, carrots and stuff, with low-fat cottage cheese or something and crispbread. That way I can get a whole plateful for only a couple of points.

pointless sauces <<<ears prick up>>>
how can I make a pointless sauce, mine always end up out of a jar with about 14 points in

Have you got some of that one-cal spray stuff? Spray lightly on frying pan, add finely chopped onion(s) and cook for a while; add tin or two of chopped tomatoes, herbs, pepper and salt. Throw in any other veg you have to hand - like courgettes and green peppers. (Longer-cooking veg like cauliflower or carrots can go in too, but need boiling first.) Simmer gently til the veg is cooked - c.20mins. If you make up a large batch, you can then freeze portions to pull out and throw over a measured portion of pasta or meat or whatever!

If you like a smooth sauce you can puree it, or you can just have it chunky.

Forget to say - if/when onion starts to stick, add some water.

typical day:

morning: toast and egg or cereal (special k red berries)
lunch: waitrose perfectly balanced ready meal/bagel with cottage cheese/soup eg new covent garden's mushroom 1/2 carton
supper: spag bol (home made, v little fat, bulked up with veggies)/meat with small jacket potato and loads and loads of vegetables/meat with 0 point swede and celeriac mash and veggies

la vache qui rie cheese spread is only 1/2 point
massive vegetable stir fry with shitake mushrooms/peppers/beansprouts/loads of soy sauce is 0 points

hth a bit

best meal i've had so far on ww is skinless duckbreast roasted with 0 point swede and celeriac mash with leeks and green beans: whole thing comes to 3 points i think...and i was stuffed, also i could have half a bottle of wine

Lisa78 Sun 09-May-04 19:13:44

what herbs? (Sorry to be pedantic, but I really am utterly hopeless at cooking!)
I could chuck mushrooms in too couldn't I?
Ooh, I am feeling quite excited now, cos I love pasta and sauce but its so high in points

Codswallop Sun 09-May-04 19:15:22

Lisa what meal is particularly difficult?

Luynch woud be a hige aslad for me with egg/tuna.
or soup of cream cheese and crackers

M+S do a low point sauce as well.
OR use a thai curry paste with lemongrass and coriander chopped, mix with little bit of skim milk for a marinade and stuff the chicken breast with it, bake for 35 minutes, servie with point free salad! Hey hey sin free dinner
We just had meringues, low fat fromage frais and raspberries for pudding 2.5 points!
I adore cooking and see this as a challenge so am very keen on it!

kiwisbird Sun 09-May-04 19:20:44

for pasta, buy sieved tomatoes called passata, add some torn basil leaves, some chili paste and an onion/capsicum/mushrooms/courgette
point free

Lisa78 Sun 09-May-04 19:21:02

dinner I suppose Coddy, I need something for about 6-8 points that isn't boring the arse off me

Lisa78 Sun 09-May-04 19:22:12

how the hell do you stuff a chicken breast?

Oh and Kiwi, you might want to check out the rest of the do you know someone famous thread - we had plans to have you bumped off

kiwisbird Sun 09-May-04 19:32:39

seen it lisa! LOL
slice into the chicken breast to create a pocket, slowly but surely does it! Keep the skin on to keep the chicken from drying out, but don't eat it

Jennisaurus Sun 09-May-04 22:17:39

Meals I have-

Tesco small ham and mushroom pizza- 5.5 points

Pork chop with stuffing and loads of veggies

Jacket potato with low fat cheese

Chicken breast with low fat cheese melted on top

Stir fries (bung chicken and veggies in and eat with noodles)

Any good? I am a rubbish cook to!
