Meal Plan: Week Three

|
So here we are week three of the meal plan. Now I am going to be completely honest and say last week was a bit of a write off as my daughter turned five and so there was cake, cake and more cake! Not only did I have cake, but we broke our no bread rule and indulged in a little picnic at the zoo. But you know what, I still managed to lose this week. 

As we were busying preparing for a weekend of birthday fun, I couldn't really sit down and meal plan like a pro so we are kind of free balling it with the plan this week, however we are determined to keep on plan this week and start our no bread rule again and stick to it, until our holiday at least.

Monday:: Sausage Pasta Bake with Broccoli.

As we had a busy morning I wanted to make something that I could whip up and put in the oven so sausage pasta bake it was. Yes the sausages have syns, but they were totally worth the 2 syns each in the delicious cheesy sauce which is so simple and easy to make. You need 100g plain quark, 100ml chicken stock, a tsp mustard powder and a tsp dried parsley whisk and then add to the pasta. So simple but jam packed full of flavour. 


Tuesday :: Turkey Koftas, Wholewheat Pasta and Salad. 

Oh these turkey koftas are always a good recipe, and these koftas are so delicious. What makes these turkey koftas even better is that a single portion of these are around 230 calories, and they go perfectly with a salad and potatoes or pasta and salad. Last week my husband and I were really craving pasta salad, so we decided that this would be the perfect partner for our turkey koftas. However this time instead of making mini ones, we decided to make them slightly larger and they were so good even if they did look a little odd, well according to my husband anyway. 


Wednesday :: Chilli Cheese Nachos from Pinch of Nom

Since starting slimming world one thing I have been craving is Mexican and especially nachos! Oh how I miss loaded nachos, however I don't miss the loaded calories. With Pinch of Nom their website is packed full of amazing tasting recipes that will sure to help with those cravings and I stumbled across this recipe for Chilli Cheesy Nachos. This recipe really has everything you need – gooey cheese, crispy “nacho” potato wedges, and spicy chilli minced beef. However we are not a fan of mince beef so we always use pork or turkey mince. If you're a fan of Nachos then you must must try this recipe it doesn't disappoint. 


Thursday:: Singapore Noodles

This recipe is ridiculously easy. Seriously – it’s 4 steps long & that’s it. It is low syn and less that 300 calories making it the perfect fakeaway. As always we like to add a noodles to this dish, however you could add rice, potatoes or keep to lots of speed veggies. I really do like this one as it can be cooked within 20 minutes and taste so good every time. 


Friday:: Spanish Omelette, Paprika Chips and Green Leafy Salad. 

My favourite egg dish is without a doubt an omelette because they really are so versatile and you can keep it simple and wholesome or be as dramatic and over the top as you dare. I prefer simplicity when it comes my omelettes but have to be jam packed full of goodness like this ham, tomato and mushroom omelette. The free foods are eggs, ham, tomatoes, mushrooms and spinach and I have used Frylight 1 cal cooking spray to cook the omelette on both sides. I have used reduced cheddar cheese and I will be using as part of my Healthy Extra A, however if you wanted to save your Healthy Extra A then you will have to syn accordingly.

So there is our meal plan for our weekday meals, what do you think? Will you consider any of the recipes that I included?
