Monday, 20-11-23: Mini-Spicemas day 20

Good morning, everyone, and welcome to my maintaining on Slimming World blog where I talk about the meals I enjoy while maintaining my target weight and keeping a healthy balanced diet.

Today's spice sachet is Chicken Curry Seasoning.  Now I will definitely use that one.
The site says:
Can be used as a dry rub or marinade
Delicious in creamy kormas and rice dishes
Makes vegetarian dishes currylicious

Nothing that other brands don't do but it will be useful and has a tasty looking list of ingredients

Yesterday's meal photos:
Breakfast was fruit taken on the run.  An apple and a banana.  No photos :-)

Lunch was so-o-o-o good.  The beef was so tender it melted in the mouth (definitely using that recipe again) and I love a plateful of vegetables.  Again, the Yorkshire platter was delicious.

Soup and sandwich for dinner and it was luvverly!

Stayed on plan all day and felt happy about it.
Today's meal plans:

B:  fruit and yogurt
SW:  syn free

L:  beef cassoulet, croutons
When I slow cooked the beef using the SW recipe, I ended up with a lovely sauce which contained little onions, tomatoes and pepper plus chopped tomato and beefy stock.
I syphoned off some of the liquid for yesterday's gravy but have quite a lot of soft deliciousness left so I'm going to add some shredded beef (leftovers) and some white beans and call it cassoulet!  Why not?
SW:  one healthy extra B for the croutons and the rest is syn free

D:  cheeseburger pasta
This is a Slimming Eats recipe.  Here's the link:
And there's a very handy 'jump to recipe' button so you don't have to trawl through all the adverts and bumph unless you really want to.  Good for Siobhan.
SW:  let's call it two healthy extra As for cheese (for convenience) but the rest looks to be syn free.

Exercise:  it's small group circuits today.

two healthy extra As
one healthy extra B
this appears to be a syn free day
For information:
The Slimming World structure:
While following the plan, you can have . . .

Any amount of speed and free food - BUT try to have a third of your plate as speed food as a sub for free food, NOT as well as . . .  Eat to satisfaction, not to stuffed-ness!

Two healthy extra As (calcium) and one healthy extra B (fibre) - details in the SW pack and on the SW web site/app.

Between five and fifteen syns-worth of synned food - again, details in the pack, site and app.  They are a limit to stay within, not a target to hit.

As a target member, I can also have . . .

Another two healthy extras each day
Another fifteen syns up to three times each week
BUT - only if I need/want to.  It's a limit, not a target

. . . with the ultimate aim of not needing to count healthy extras, syns, etc at all but just knowing and eating well instinctively.
