Haven't decided on tea. Too busy thinking about dinner ! I m trying the covent garden chicken and chickpea (300g) . I seem to be alright finding teas to eat because I fill my plate up with salads if Im not too keen. A dinner that I like and is satifying and free is what Im after. Not much to ask lol Grin


Cherrypi · 28/02/2018 12:09

Just had a very yummy prawn stir fry with noodles for lunch. Baked potatoes for tea I think as didn’t have all the ingredients I needed for campfire stew as I used them in yesterday’s beef fajita pasta.


Flutterby81 · 28/02/2018 14:19

Hi everyone well done to the losers Smile
Lunch I took to work is inedible didn’t cook my pasta enough but resisting the urge to go to costa have had fruit,hopefully that will keep me going until hometime.

Weigh in tonight......

I dread it every week.


FrozenMargarita17 · 28/02/2018 17:37

Does anyone have any good recipes to share? I struggle to find things on the SW app and website - I wish there was a way to filter it instead of having to trawl through pages and pages. I know you can search by ingredient or whatever but I think filters like 'syn free' would be helpful !


FrozenMargarita17 · 28/02/2018 17:37

@calzone best of luck!


FrozenMargarita17 · 28/02/2018 17:38

@boats16 is that soup free? I need better quick lunches at home..


boats16 · 28/02/2018 17:57

Buckwheat and Bean 300g

Just made cheeseburger pasta after seeing it mentioned on this page it was delicious the whole family liked it and il definetly make it again


MumInTheCity · 28/02/2018 18:58

Just tried the halo top peanut butter cup ice cream - I know it's not really ice cream weather but it was so delicious! Felt like a proper treat, I had a quarter of the tub which is only 4 syns.

B - hifi bar (half HEB) and an apple
L - Hawaiian pasta bake (HEA for cheese)
D - chicken korma (1.5 syns), onion bhajis and mango chutney (2 syns)
S - peanut butter ice cream (4 syns) and another hifi (other half of HEB)


TheImprobableGirl · 28/02/2018 19:04

Halo top ice cream sounds good - I have a milk protein allergy so ice cream is completely out for me.

Does anyone have a good creamy cajun pasta recipe? I bought some quark specially, but I can't seem to find a good one.


Groovee · 28/02/2018 19:54

Improbable I do mushrooms and onions as I can't eat peppers, fry up, add chicken add a table spoon of Cajun spice and mix well, remove from the heat then stir in the quark and add pasta.

Anyone recommend any of Icelands slimming world range ? Ive tried a few but theyre not appetising. Beeg in black bean sauce is nice but I have to split it in two thers so much of it Shock


boats16 · 01/03/2018 14:30

I tried a dress on today for the first time in years. I liked it so much, I bought it !!! I have a belly but last year we bought a ' Wondercore' and I now do sit ups while I watch Corrie and Emmerdale . My belly hasnt completely gone but I feel confident enough to wear a dress which is what I wanted on my holiday Smile


Flutterby81 · 01/03/2018 15:15

That must be a fantastic feeling boats! Well done Smile


EddSimcox · 01/03/2018 18:09

Hello SW peeps. I’m one of those awful dieters / gainers/ dieters who has sworn never to diet again. Only to find that my joints and feet are complaining too loudly and I have to lose weight. Is SW the answer? How easy is it to follow? Does it always work? Anyone on the online plan? (I can’t get to a group) Will I hate it? Need to lose 3 stone really. Advice welcome.
