Meal Plan Monday

Yes, I am back sharing my meal plan with you, whether you actually care what I'm eating is up to you!

There is a reason behind this, that I wasn't going to share, but that felt pointless. I've joined slimming world. I've been listening to my slimpods for around 2 years, and have already lost some weight. However, now my head is in the right place, I need to get my food there too.

I joined last Friday, so this is my first week. Obviously this means I'm throwing myself into it wholeheartedly, and I love to cook anyway. So there are a few recipes that will come from Slimming World's website or magazines, and some that I've adapted from food I already cook, adding extra veg.

The current issue that some recipes are from

Here's this weeks plan:

 Salmon with breadcrumbs, various vegetables and a baked potato.

Chicken Tikka and rice, from the latest issue of Slimming World magazine

Cottage Pie, made with extra lean mince and a sweet potato mash & plenty of boiled veg

Chicken and vegetable stir fry

Friday (weigh day):

Kebab and salad (again from the slimming world mag)

Sausage, mash, veg & vegetable gravy

It's unusual for us to miss a roast dinner, on a Sunday, but Mr. Ojo is off to see the rugby, so I'm cooking just for me. I'll be using SW sausages, from Iceland.

There is a linky that goes with this, run by Hijacked by twins. She shares some wonderful recipes, on her blog, so if you want to be inspired, click on her badge:
