Yesterday's meal photos:
I really did enjoy it too - I love salt and vinegar flavour - and was happy to add six syns to my total (which was only half a syn before anyway)
It was a very tasty breakfast.
The mince and potato thingy worked really well and I will add it to my list of 'things to make'. Beef and potato layer bake!
SW would be proud of me - it may look a right plateful but around three quarters of it is speed veg when you take into account what's in the layer bake as well as what's on the side.
B: fruit and yogurt
I haven't had just this for a while and, as lunch is a big one, a lighter breakfast seems a very good idea. I have blueberries, pears, grapes, apples, plums, oranges and bananas to choose from - no, I won't have all of them but I will probably turn it into a fruit salad and leave some for lunch.
SW: half a syn for 2% Greek yogurt
L: gammon, roasties, parsnips, assorted veg; fruit salad
I almost always have a Be Good To Yourself gammon available. It's super-lean, tastes good and has a long fridge life. I will be boiling this one as I want the stock to make soup with afterwards.
I think I will make a spiced apple sauce to have with the gammon plus all the usual veg. I won't be synning the cooked apple but I will syn the demerara sugar I will use.
SW: I can't imagine I will need more than one tbsp sugar for the sauce so that will be one and a half syns. I think the rest will be free, protein or speed
D: leek and potato soup with added gammon, croutons; yogurt
I was going to use the gammon stock to make soup for dinner but I have yesterday's leftovers of leek and potato so that stock will have to wait for another day! I'll add some ham to the soup to give it a bit more substance, I think.
SW: one healthy extra for bread and half a syn for yogurt
E: A rest day today as I'm feeling quite rough with this cold
no healthy extra As (but, thinking about it, I might add some cheese to my leek and potato soup)
one healthy extra B
