Vegetarian Slimming World – Meal planning Monday #1

I know that it’s Tuesday today and I had decided to schedule this for next week but I need to get on with this weight loss and so in order to be organised, I am ordering my shopping in order to follow this meal plan next week. If you want to slim alongside me, I will be publishing a week in advance, so this Meal Plan is for:

Week commencing Monday 3rd October.

I have followed Slimming World in the past but at that time, I ate meat but I have since transitioned to being Vegetarian, I have struggled to sort my diet out as I never sat down and planned, I just cut out meat and ate whatever vegetarian suitable food that I had in the house. My weight has been creeping up and so it’s time to embark on a Vegetarian Slimming World diet. I am following the old style ‘Green’ day plan which allows me to eat 2 Healty Extra (Hex) A’s and B’s. Initially, I will be eating these if I choose to but over time, I intend to drop to just 1 Hex A and 1 Hex B

I also find that I spend a fortune in Tesco and so hope that by planning my meals and and ordering on line, I’ll save a lot of money.

One thing that you’ll notice quickly, is that I like to save all my syns for snacks and treats and try to make most of my meals syn free. I eat dinner with my son and so tend to want to snack at 8pm. That’s when the syns come in useful!

As I’ve mentioned, I’ve followed Slimming World before but not as a Vegetarian and so would love it if you can send any recipes that you recommend. 

I drink coffee throughout the day and use 1 of my Hex A allowance for skimmed milk. 

So here is my week:

    Love the sound of your meals – I was once a vegetarian and found I ate bread and butter with everything! I put on a lot of weight too. Good luck! Steph x

    I look forward to when I get a new job away from food and I can get back to Slimming World and lose this lard.

    Ooh I love these plans. I’m not a vegetarian but just about because I try to eat a lot of vegetables. Will definitely be trying some of these ideas.

      Oh I’m glad. I first started by reducing my meat intake as I think that as a nation, we eat far to much meat x

        Pippa – i should have added an edit as I did include Muller lights originally and then was horrified when Kelly told me that they contained gelatine. I’m now vegan and so it’s not an issue for me but I changed the plan as I didn’t want to mislead anyone int thinking that they were Vegetarian x

    Your menu looks fab Hannah. I am nearly at the 2 stone mark, I have a long way to go so love checking out blogs for ideas, it’s very easy to get stuck making the same food week in, week out once you’ve found what works.
