Bacon, poached eggs and lightly toasted crumpets for a late breakfast/early lunch. I’ve fallen off The WW wagon big time but I thought I’d try and eat a bit more mindfully this week. I’ve a big operation soon (hip replacement) and losing weight should have been a priority but I got sucked into the binge-feel sorry for myself cycle and dread to think what I weigh. However, I’m a WeightWatcher through and through and I WILL get back to the best eating plan I’ve come across. Have a great Sunday Instafamily 💕
Totally Honest Post, I have been finding it really difficult to get back on it recently, I've been away, at events, had guests and generally had life get in the way and I've found it so different to not let these hinder my plan. Its going be Christmas soon and I need to look well. I know October isn't really Salad season but I have to start somewhere. Today's lunch is Chicken(2sp) salad, tomatoes and onions. Also a drizzle is of balsamic vinegar. #weightwatchers#weightwatchersireland#weightwatchers360#weightwatchersjourney
Really unsure what to expect today.. my day has moved from a Tuesday, cause I was travelling for work during the week. Very tough having to eat out for breakfast, lunch and dinner.. but whatever happens I am actually very proud of some of the choices I made.. could it have been better? Absolutely! Could it have been a million times worse? Absolutely! . .
When your sweet tooth is screaming for chocolate, these really hit the spot and they're so easy to make 👏🎉 Healthy Banana Choc Chip Cookies 🍪 🍌
25g dessicated coconut
About 50g chunks of dark chocolate
Preheat oven to 180C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
Mash the bananas until smooth.
Mix in the porridge and coconut and then add the chocolate chunks and mix really well.
Scoop one tablespoon of the mixture for each cookie and flatten onto a baking tray.
The mixture won’t rise or spread so you can put them pretty close together and the size you make is the size your cookie will be.
Bake for 10-15 minutes until they’re set and look golden. Enjoy 🤗👅
Pumpkin Soup 🎃 Ingredients:
1 kg pumpkin, unpeeled weight
1 onion, sliced
2 garlic cloves, peeled whole
3 cups vegetable or chicken broth, low sodium
1 cup water
Salt and pepper
Cut the pumpkin into slices. Cut the skin off and scrape seeds out. Cut into chunks.
Place the pumpkin, onion, garlic, broth and water in a pot - liquid won't cover all the pumpkin. Bring to the boil, uncovered, then reduce heat and let simmer rapidly until pumpkin is tender.
Remove from heat and use a blender to blend until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Ladle soup into bowls, drizzle over a bit of cream, sprinkle with pepper and a few walnuts if you like! Serve with crusty bread 👅😊😊
