Overnight Oats for today made with 40g Oats, a sliced up orange, raspberries, fruitopolis yoghurt (0.5 syns) and then some protein syrup from The Protein Works (0.5 syns worth) tastes amazing and a nice change from my usual concoctions. It's 1 syn for it all if you use your oats as your B choice. I had this from about 10am until 1pm, as I was busy working swell so I didn't feel like having lunch as it was super filling.
Finally, the soup as promised!
This is all I ate all day, I wasn't hungry and I sipped plenty of Winter Spice throughout the day too. Im shocked as I could normally eat 5 times this so I'm not sure whether I was just that busy I forgot to eat or if I just genuinely wasn't hungry.

As you can see from previous posts I make S&P chicken quite frequently. I had completely forgotten about the joys of Mayflower Curry until I found it whilst out shopping this weekend. It's only about £1 for a box of powder (you make it up with water) and only 25g of powder is 4 syns it's fab!
Cooked some chicken, onions and peas just like my normal chinese and then made up the sauce and added it. SIMPLE!
Then just made up some noodles as the packet said and stir fried some beansprouts in for extra speed and VOILA! Job done. This is also only have of the sauce so is only 2 syns (although I did have the rest of it later)

I'm looking forward to indulging this Christmas and if I gain a few pounds I know it will be worth it. I know I won't gain all the weight i've lost and as soon as I'm back on plan 100% it will be off. Trying to get as close to target as I can beforehand, 10lbs TO GO! This has by far been the hardest 10lbs to lose, I got down to 3lb from target and just couldn't maintain it but I am feeling a lot more positive this time round and I'm ready to get there!

Even managed to use my hex a for cheese now that I have my winter spice! I will get the recipe off him at some point...

All of that totalled by B choice + 6 syns, leaving me with 9 to use on snacks if I wanted to. I won't lie, I used it on chocolate, but that's fine, I satisfied my sweet tooth and I had the syns there to use. Winner!
The beef stew was done in the slow cooker and was quite literally some diced beef, 2 stock cubes and a bag of frozen casserole veg. I even chucked in some mushrooms and carrots that were left over and added salt and pepper. Popped the slow cooker on low for about 8 hours and thats it. Simple yet a real Winter Warmer.
40g porridge oats, punnet of strawberries & a muller light. Simple. Here's to a good week...

So now that I've got over the shock... I won this at group tonight.
I genuinely couldn't stop shaking I was so amazed to have gotten it. So many incredible people at my group tonight that inspire each other week in, week out. I've had a bit of a wobble recently I'll be the first to admit that so I didn't think I would even be nominated let alone win this.
An amazing taster full of low syn and syn free treats too, loads I want to remake, and my heads back in the game! 8lbs to go to target! Let's do this!
I am far too excited to devour a plate full of these at Taster tonight, and the best thing...
THEY'RE HALF A SYN EACH!!!
They are beautiful and will definitely be made again, in massive batches so I can live off them over the Christmas period and not feel guilty!
They are from the new Festive Feasts book that is available in groups this week, I got mine free with the Countdown Offer last month at group. I can't wait to try some other recipes from this book especially if they are as good as these!!
