Ritu’s Healthy Eating – Week 42 #icandothis

Another week, another load of lovely food, and a good few naughty treats too!

The weekly weigh-in showed… Oops! A gain of 1.5lb! But no worries, I am still under my self imposed target of 9 and a half stone!

And I am happy to say that, though my shoulder is hurting after it, I managed to get back to my bhangra class for the first time since my accident!!! I hope that a few weeks of dancing will help kick-start the next phase of my health kick, to include a little more exercise!

Until next week Peeps!

 

Ritu’s Healthy Eating – Week 41 – #icandothis

Another crazy week, busy, with eating on the hop!

But I managed another 1.5lb off!

I don’t quite know how that happened! I have been visiting the freezer rather a lot, eating Haagen Dazs and things like that too!

Also not sleeping well as my best friend is in labour, and has been since the early hours of Sunday morning… it is Friday now, and finally baby is thinking the pains can stop, and she is trying to bring this baby out into the world today and RIGHT NOW! Been constantly on alert, checking my phone for updates… that doesn’t help, when you a re tired you wanna snack too! OH God! Got the Alert! She has a GIRL!!!!!!

Still, foody pics for this week!

Aside from my news, my colleague recently joined Slimming World, and I am so proud of her, 5.5lb loss in her first week!

Right, I’m off to get happy about my new ‘niece’!

Happy Week Peeps! Love y’all!!!

Ritu’s Healthy Eating – Week 40 – #icandothis

Another week, another weight change… but this time for the positive!I dropped 0.5lb so am hopefully getting back on an even keel regarding the eating… not so much eating double anymore!!!

Food this week…

And even Sonu Singh wanted a look in this time!

I’m a little late writing this, this morning so no time for a recipe for tip, but will be posting on Sunday about how to make a Proper Punjabi Paratha! Look out for it!

Til next week Peeps!

Stay Healthy!

Ritu’s Healthy Eating – Week 39 – #icandothis

wp-1492120543707.It’s been another week of eating ups and downs. And it pains me to say that I had another 0.5lb gain, though I am still not over that weight ceiling I set myself!

I had fully expected to to to my bhangra class too this week, but I had some severe stomach pains on the Tuesday which meant that I thought it best not to push it on Wednesday.

I have decided that I have to be sensible now and not buy any naughty things that will tempt me to much. This last month and the munchy madness that has accompanied Pre/during/Post-Easter has meant that I have redeveloped a taste for the sugary treats that I always loved before.

I had managed to wean myself off them all, and kept a selection of treats that I knew were ‘allowed’ for me, but as soon as I ate ‘wrong’ things, I was like a recovering chocoholic falling off the wagon in a spectacular way!

Even now if I eat something I shouldn’t, my brain is telling me to have another… that eating double mentality of mine needs to do one!

But, I have been good too, as the meals below show you!

Have a great week Peeps!

And remember, ‘Enough is as good as a feast!” “Eating double causes trouble!”

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!
