Meal Plan Monday: Week Nine - March 2nd

I have been sharing our weekly meal plans since beginning of the year and so far they have been so great and help me keep on track. Not only that when I share my slimming world meals over on Insta I always get people asking for recipes. This week has been really good meal plan wise and for majority of the time we stayed on track - we have been indulging in a few too many evening snacks so that's something we have to work on next week. A snack free week! Anyone else enjoy a little snack in the evening? My downfall is craving something sweet with a cup of tea.

Monday:: Slow Cooker Sausage Casserole

Our little lady has Rainbows on a Monday evening so we always need something that is quick and simple to eat before we go. Now that the colder weather seems to be going my husband and I are trying to be better and go walking as she is at Rainbows instead of heading home to sit in front of the box. So this week our plan for Monday is of course a slow cooker sausage casserole because it is super low in syn and low in calories. 

Tuesday:: Honey and Mustard Drumsticks, Quinoa and Feta Salad. 

I'm sure that you know by now that we are a big fan of these honey and mustard pork loins and so it made it's way into our meal plan for this week, but with a twist. We have swapped out pork loins and make succulent honey and mustard chicken drumsticks - it was a delicious spin on the recipe. We paired these drumsticks with Quinoa to keep the dish low calorie. 

Wednesday:: Spicy Fish, Slimming World Chips, Salad and Petit Pois. 

We all know that fish is a great source of protein and generally they are jam packed full of vitamins and nutrients making it a great option to add into our weekly meal plans. However, my husband isn't a great lover of fish and prefers to stick to meat. But I have been strict and said we are having it this week with a little spice. Our spicy fish does use some of your syns for a daily allowance, but they are worth them. We use around 30g of Chilli Heatwave Doritos with a teaspoon of onion powder, paprika and more chilli and crush together. We then sprinkle the seasoning on top of the fish and pop them in the over at 180oc for about 25 minutes. They come our hot, spicy and super crispy - it was a big hit with my husband. 

Thursday:: Turkey Keema, Boiled Rice and Steamed Veggies

Keema Curry is a South Asian dish that traditionally would use lamb mince, if you are happy to spend some syns, then you could stick to tradition and use ground lamb, but to keep this dish syn free, we love to use either turkey or pork mince. It’s a great dish for batch cooking and freezing up some portions and is gluten and dairy free. 

Friday:: Pizza Chicken, Crunchy Roasted Potatoes and a Green Leaf Salad. 

We LOVE a Friday night pizza parttty. But being on slimming world getting pizza is probably one of the worse takeaways we can tuck into so we have swapped out a calorie loaded base for a chicken breast. After searing the chicken breast we then pour over home made tomato sauce and top with some cheese. It honestly taste just like traditional pizza sauce.
