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.
Through December, I am going to try to incorporate as much Christmas themed food as possible while still following SW guidelines (mostly) and remaining within my target range.
I am starting to ponder the way ahead after the festive season is over and I have lost my Christmas/cruise gain which won't be an awful lot, I hope, but it would be unrealistic to expect no gain at all.
I want to stay with the general structure - lots of veg and fruit, lean protein, careful carbs (but not unlimited - that doesn't work for me), measured fibre and calcium and carefully controlled extras (I'm not calling them 'treats' - that conveys the wrong thing to me).
I have a few ideas but just need to think it through a bit more carefully. Watch this space.
The sticky chicken is a SW recipe - honey (or similar), soy sauce and balsamic vinegar, and I thought it would be nicer to serve as kebabs rather than just as separate lumps. I'm making the coleslaw festive by adding some dried cranberries and crumbled chestnuts
