Not the most interesting of food days today, mainly because we do our shopping over the weekend for the coming week.
Last week I bought enough mugshots to last me until today, after that I decided on this weeks challenge.
So, until we do our shopping, I'm having to really think about what I'm having..........and still be on plan.
Another hiccup in my day, I have a stinking cold! So having to factor in Strepsils into my day. Syns online say they are half a Syn each. My very kind colleague Karen also gave me some brilliant cough sweets. I can't find these on the net so I've Synned them at 1 each just to be on the safe side. Total altogether 4 Syns.
I've decided to see how it goes again trying to have another red day. I figure if I start it as red, and then decide I fancy pasta or potatoes with my meal, I can turn it into an Extra Easy day.
Starting with Brekkie......
I really fancied some porridge this morning, but we didn't have any
:( and, Steve said I should lay off the bread this week to see if my losses are any better without it. Hence the Weetabix. He also said to lay off the bananas too, so instead of my usual banana I had an apple and a pear.
Lunch wasn't a great deal different from yesterday.
Swapped the chicken for tuna. I love eating fish, the other half though can't stand the stuff, so unfortunately I don't eat it very often. The coleslaw from the other day was still good too. And the fruit and yog (which I forgot to take with me) is pretty standard.
Total Syns 0.5
I did though have the added temptation of cakes in the office today. The person who bought them in even thought about all of us on diets...He bought in Weight Watchers cakes (bless him) I might have been tempted by one if I hadn't needed cough sweets as they were 4.5 Syns a slice.
We were meant to be having a SW version of chicken fried steak today for dinner but we forgot to take the steak out of the freezer.
Before SW (and even during some weeks) at times like these we would have turned to the takeaway. Instead I rustled up this.
Bolognaise and a jacket spud. (though you cant see it under the bol)
On a red day you can have the potato as a 2nd HEB. You may be wondering where my Superfree is? There is lots in it. I used 3 tins of tomatoes, quarter of a bag of frozen mixed peppers and a massive red onion. This is also half of what I would usually eat. I wasn't hugely hungry. The only Syns in this was the cheese. 5 Syns per 25g
Total Syns 5
Total Syns for the day 9.5.
