What I Ate Wednesday - The Slimming World Edition!



Welcome to my very first What I Ate Wednesday! I decided to start doing this because I thought it would be easier than picking my favourite SW meals from the week to share in a post with you. Doing a post on a full day of Slimming World eating will probably give you a better idea of how this way of eating works on a day by day basis. Hopefully it will illustrate how wonderful, filling and easy to follow SW is! So without further ado, here is what I've been tucking into this Wednesday!





  
 BREAKFAST

2 X  Alpen Light bars. 2 of these delicious bars can count as your Healthy Extra B choice. I believe if you don't want to use them as your HEB they would have a Syn value of 3.5 per bar.

Quick tip - I occasionally crumble one into a low fat vanilla yogurt. It's a great treat!







 LUNCH

Slimming World super speed soup and a banana. I really love this soup! I know some people prefer to blend it, but I love the chunky texture. A very filling lunch!






DINNER

Homemade Quorn lasagne.  Normally I would make lasagne with lean beef mince but I didn't have any and I always have a stash of Quorn products in my freezer so I decided to use my Quorn Mince for a change! I made sure to add lots of veg, carrot, celery, mushrooms, peppers, onion and courgette.

Quick tip - I didn't do it on this occasion but sometimes when making Lasagne I will also substitute the pasta layers for vegetables instead. You can use leeks (but you need to boil those to soften them first) or roasted peppers and courgettes. I personally think the latter makes a much tastier lasagne. I was just far too lazy to do it this time!



SNACKS

Lidl low fat strawberry yoghurt
Options hot chocolate (Belgian Chocolate flavour)


SYNS

Not many today. Just  2 for my hot chocolate and another couple for the Philadelphia I used for the Lasagne topping. Although, since I didn't eat the whole lasagne it might be less!




So there you have it! What did you eat this Wednesday?

Oooooh I love this. Thank you. I started SW on Tuesday so will be following this series with a lot of interest.

I had Fruit & Fibre for breakfast.

A wholemeal roll with beef in it and some oranges for lunch.

For dinner I had a chicken stir fry and I've also had a muller lite and some melon.
Do you think that's ok???

Hi! Yes that sounds really good! One thing I think is great about SW is that you can have such a wide variety of foods and plenty of them. Good luck, probably end up comparing recipes on Twitter at some point too! :)

I am trying to lose weight as well. What I am doing is just less snacky food which I so love and indulge into before. Hopefully this would work =)

This is a great idea. It's only since I have been on my diet that I have been keeping a food diary. It really works. Love quorn mince too. Thank you for linking to PoCoLo x
