Ritu’s Healthy Eating – Week 37 – #icandothis


So I guess the important thing to tell you all is that I didn’t put any more weight on!!!

I’d be lying if I said I was really good, the tail end of the holidays, combined with the stress of going back, and the fact that I have a lesson observation hanging over my head means that I am neither eating well, or sleeping properly! (4 hours last night!)

But alongside the (extremely) naughty I was good too!

So here are some yummy pics!

And a quick recipe

Slimming World Friendly Spaghetti Bolognaise



I shan’t put amounts as I don’t measure things out, but you use as much or as little as you want! Add any other vegetables if you want, it only bulks your Speed up!!!

Dry Spaghetti
Low fat Lamb/Beef/Turkey mince
Minced Garlic
Diced Onions
Chopped Mushrooms
Diced Peppers
Tomato Puree
Tomato Passatta
Dried Mixed Herbs
Salt and Pepper to taste
Cheese if you want (Can be taken out of your HexA allowance)
Frylight spray for cooking.

  • Put your spaghetti on to boil as per packet instructions
  • Spray your pan with Frylight
  • Brown garlic and onions
  • Add mushrooms and peppers and soften. Add a little tomato puree
  • In a separate pan, brown your mince, with a tiny Frylight spray so it doesn’t stick.
  • Once browned, drain any fat and add to the softened veg.
  • Stir well then add the tomato passatta
  • Season with salt and pepper and add a sprinkle of mixed dried herbs
  • Allow to simmer on a low heat for 10 15 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Drain your cooked spaghetti.
  • Plate up and sprinkle cheese if you desire.
  • Serve with a large side salad, or if you’re feeling decadent, then a little piece of garlic bread! Make it SW friendly by using aย wholemeal roll (HexB) and syn the butter!)

That’s my lot this week peeps! Have a wonderful week, I hope I get back on track properly by next week, but with this observation looming, I’m not sure!!!!


Speed is the name given to certain fruit and vegetables that have a filling quality about them, and are easily digestible. They are great for weight loss! HexA and HExB are allowances for Slimming Worlders. HexA is calcium intake, so will include certain amounts of milk and cheeses, and HexB is fibre, so includes ย certain amounts of wholemeal bread, cereals, nuts and any stewed fruits. If you are following Slimming World, make sure you stick to your allowances!

    There are those nights when our thoughts are turning and sleep is rare. But this all will be over soon and then you can concentrate better on your eating. I understand you. When everything around feels stressful then you don’t want something to enjoy. I know, you keep an eye on your weight anyway!
