Ritu’s Healthy Eating – Week 37 – #icandothis

wp-1492120543707.

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

20170417_202359

Ingredients

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.

Method
  • 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 a 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!!!!

Enjoy!!!

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  certain amounts of wholemeal bread, cereals, nuts and any stewed fruits. If you are following Slimming World, make sure you stick to your allowances!

Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 58 – Easter Special

Easter. The only time it’s okay to put all of your eggs in one basket!”
Author Unknown

It is a day to enjoy your chocolate eggs… (Well that is what the kids think anyway!) But also a time, for those who believe, a time to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus.

So why do we have eggs?

Eggs are said to be a symbol of new life and so they perfectly represent Jesus beginning his new life after resurrection.

I shall not profess to be an expert on the whole Easter topic, but suffice to say, having been born and brought up in the UK, going to a Church Of England school, I learned plenty about the religious significance!

Anyway, have a wonderful Easter all of those of you that celebrate, and if you don’t, enjoy the long weekend you got because of it!

And don’t forget to change your clocks if you are in the UK… we lose an hour, this time, remember!

A preview…!

Well, it wouldn’t be fair if Sonu Singh wasn’t helping us celebrate Easter, so here’s a taster of what you might see more of tomorrow!

oooh… what’s that?

My interactive peeps!
