Good evening, everyone.  
Proper back on track today.  Phew.

What I have eaten today:

A nice, simple fruit and yogurt for breakfast with these three strawberries, the first fruits from this year's strawberry plants.

Syn free.
Another simple meal for lunch - a choppy salad with some ham.

One syn for salad cream.

A not quite so simple dinner.
Two home made burgers (recipes at the end) with coleslaw, tomatoes and chunky chips.
It was delish!

Two healthy extra As for cheese, either in the burgers themselves or sliced, one B for the bread roll.
As for syns:
two for one tsp oil
one and a half for mayo in the coleslaw
one and a half for chutney

two healthy extra As
one healthy extra B
six syns
Tomorrow's meal plans

B:  bacon and mushroom omelette

L:  roast beef dinner

D:  cheese toastie

Exercise:  rest day.

I made the burgers by mixing together 100g beef  mince (<5%), one rosemary and red onion sausage (from Aldi), 15g grated hard Italian cheese, some finely chopped and softened onion and some finely chopped cornichons, plus salt, pepper and a pinch of chilli flakes.  This amount made two good sized burgers.  It could also make meatballs, kofta type things, etc.

You could ring the changes by using pork or chicken/turkey mince or a combination and varying the seasonings.  The cheese adds flavour and keeps the inside moist.
