Food Planning Tips – Back to Slimming World!

It feels like forever ago now, but I lost 7 and a half stone in a year on Slimming World. I loved it, I felt great. I was the biggest advocate for Slimming World, and I still am. Two busy, stressful and not entirely fun years later, I’ve put on weight. Slimming World is not a diet, it’s a way of life, and quite simply, for the last two years, …


Hello Again, Slimming World! What’s New?

It’s time. Time to get back on track and stop faffing. I lost 7 and a half stone 18 months ago when I went to Slimming World, and I loved it. My group leader always used to say that “life gets in the way” and we’re always going to have blips on our journey… and well, it did. I bit the bullet and went back to a Slimming World group; …


Food Diary: What Do I Eat in a Week on Slimming World?

When I lost 7 and a half stone on Slimming World, people always asked what I ate. I’ve always believed that a sustainable food lifestyle needs to consist of a lot of food (seriously, who wants to feel hungry?) and you should never, ever feel deprived. Want to see what a typical week on-plan looks like? I’ll update it at the end of the week and let you know what …


Apple and Cinnamon (Non) Overnight Oats

After many sad and failed attempts at overnight oats, the penny finally dropped. Since then, I’m an overnight oats addict. I make a batch of them to last me through the week; they’re the perfect desk-breakfast. However… when I’m not prepared, I use my lazy non-overnight version. Want to make some too? Perfect for those mornings when you’ve not quite got your a*se in gear but still want something fancy. …

Free Printable: Up Your Meal Planning Game

It’s no secret that I’m a planner. I LOVE planning. I LOVE my planner. I obsess over it and fantasise over whether to plan digitally, on paper, with washi tape, MildLiners, or just spend hours on Pinterest coveting the creations of others. Please bear in that in mind when I say sometimes I don’t have time to plan. Add to this my love of meal planning and finding new recipes …

Food Happiness

Finding Your Happy Weight

I’ve got a somewhat complex relationship with weight and happiness, much the same as many others. From coming from a plump-but-average pre-teen, to a slightly overweight teenager, to a distinctly chubby 20-something, my weight journey was about to take a dramatic turn. After my first experimenting with the Atkins diet, I realised that I could lose weight if I deprived myself of carbs and drastically changed my lifestyle. This lifestyle, …

Free A5 printable: Slimming World Daily Planner

You may have read my previous post where I was preaching about the importance of meal planning if you’re trying to lose weight. I think being organised is key; life’s going to throw obstacles in your way, you might as well have a nicely stocked fridge to help you deal with it. If like me, you’re following the Slimming World plan, you’ll understand the need to keep track of your …

Slimming World Lunch: Weekend Hash

This has become a bit of a weekend tradition in our house, and as an added bonus, once the chopping is done, it’s just a ‘stick in the Actifry and walk off’ meal. It’s filling and perfect Slimming World food – the only syns in there are for the Heck sausage I use, which are 3.5 syns each. You can swap these for a lower-syn variety, or just use more …

Slimming World Dinner: Paprika Chicken with Rice and Vegetables

This is a deceptively easy dinner and made me happy before I even started eating it – that’s a good start! Just look at all of those pretty colours! This recipe is packed with delicious fresh speed foods. Normally this would be a variety of vegetables that are lying in the bottom of the fridge, but today’s variety consisted of a courgette, a yellow pepper, a decent handful of cherry tomatoes, …
