Hello lovelies, welcome back to itsjustabbsxo!
I have been doing slimming world for a while now and I think I have finally nailed down a solid day of eating. If you aren’t sure what slimming world is; check out their website at: http://www.slimmingworld.co.uk
On slimming world, you are allowed up to 15 syns a day. I don’t usually eat all 15 syns but I do like having the option to have a sweet treat every now and then! Okay, enough talking, lets jump in with what I actually eat in a day on slimming world! When I let you know what I eat, I will also include how many syns are in the meal!
I like to start my day off with a cup of coffee; in my coffee I add 1 sugar and some milk (lactofree of course!). I then like to make my eggs, my favourites are five minute eggs. This is where you put eggs into a pan of water and bring them to the boil – once the water is boiling, you set a timer for 5 minutes. After five minutes, you add the eggs to a cold bowl of water and peel them. To go with my eggs, I have one slice of toast, I cut the eggs in half and add them to the toast – sprinkle over some chilli flakes and salt and boom, breakfast! This is such a hearty and filling breakfast and it keeps me going all morning! My syns for breakfast end up coming to 1.5 (This is because my toast is my healthy B.)
For lunch, I like to make a pasta salad. Tuna pasta salad is one of my favourites. It is such an easy meal to prep and keep for a few days in the fridge. This tuna salad is free apart from the mayonnaise – the amount of mayonnaise I use is such a small amount I end up only using around 2 tablespoons. I add in celery, bell peppers, tuna in water and sweetcorn. The pasta is free on slimming world which is great. As well as my pasta salad, I also have some fruit – usually an apple or a banana. All fresh fruit is free on slimming world so I love to fill myself up on that! In total, my lunch comes to 1 syn.
For dinner I love to have a baked sweet potato, cut this in half and add in two tablespoons of Philadelphia soft cheese – in a separate bowl I then have some baked beans. Baked beans are completely free on slimming world so you already know I am taking advantage of that! Beans are such an easy meal and you can have them for breakfast lunch or dinner! My dinner comes to around 2 syns.
Okay, can you really go a whole day without incorporating snacks into your diet? I love to snack on various fruits and vegetables such as; apples, carrot sticks or cucumber sticks. I have also been loving Snack A Jacks the cheese flavoured ones – per snack a jack (the large round ones) is 2 syns so I will usually have two of these! I will also have another cup of tea or coffee which are both 1.5 syns.
There we have it, this is just one typical day of eating – I do have other meals that I like to have so I will do another day of eating! My days total syn counts comes to; 10 syns.
Do you like the sound of any of these meals?
Until next time, Abbs xo
