So today (Day 9! Jesus) is all about one thing that I can’t live without. I know a lot of people right here stop and say “My kids, my husband, my phone” yadda, yadda and fair enough I agree. I couldn’t live without Wes and Short Rib and would be a bit unstuck without a phone. As the cold nights are drawing in and it starts to get more wintery though, there’s another item I’d be pretty lost without. That, is my slow cooker.
Being on Slimming World is hard when you have kids. Like, really, really hard. You pack their lunch every day filled with awesome goodies that you’re dying to nibble on, whilst you look forlornly at the 30g of cereal you’ve diligently weighed for yourself. Your stomach grumbling in frustration as you quickly load them off to school with their lunches before you have chance to swipe that bag of crisps for yourself.
Well, no more! Lunchtime can be awesome for everyone, because with Slimming World you can make lunch for everyone, all eat the same, and all be super satisfied. Here, we give you some inspiration to spruce up your kids’ lunches with home made goodness that you can snack on all day, guilt free. Amazing right? Right. So here they are, our top tips for making Slimming World lunchbox treats that even the kids will love to eat.
I am a rubbish blogger this week. I know, I’m really sorry but I’m back on it now with lots more planned! As the final weeks before maternity leave creep up on me, the amount of work in my real job has increased also, so I’ve been pretty lax. So sorry about that! This week’s #WeightLossWednesday post is a recipe – because we were so busy with Father’s Day related stuff we haven’t made it to weigh in. So I’m making it up to you and myself with a recipe for basically my favourite meal of all time. Mac n Cheese Slimming World Style!
It’s not the luminous yellow tinned stuff that I lived off when I was in university (I’m not sure if that’s good or bad, you can decide for yourselves!) but it’s my recipe that makes it incredibly friendly for those of us on Slimming World. There are tonnes of recipes out there and mine is but a variation, but it’s the way I like it made and whilst it’s not as creamy and cheesy as the ones we’re used to, it certainly does the trick for those of us trying to lose a few pounds!
