Roast cod with chickpeas & chorizo

This is another super quick and easy dinner that is great mid week. Recipe can be easily double and good when you have friends over as it is easy to cook and have a conversation/entertain at the same time! Also despite how easy it is, the flavours go really well together and it is an impressive combination!

Chunky Chilli Bean Soup

This will be the fourth week running that I have made soup for work. By friday I get a bit sick of the same soup but its worth it because without my lunches made I run the risk of going off track. So far I have had cumin spiced butternut squash, celeriac leek and potato and minestrone and this week its chunky chilli bean. I think I prefer the chunky soups as it really feels like a proper meal and I don't feel the need to have bread with it. This one is so easy, quickest one yet and it is very tasty too!

Weigh In 45

This is going to be brief, its not good news I was up half a pound. I wasn't expecting it, had been good but I am prepared for the last bit to be tough. This is the weight my body stuck with for the longest so my body may just be stalling a bit! Not giving up, just have to work a little harder at it I guess!

Bacon & Spinach Pasta Bake

I've been craving carbs like mad this week! Really in the mood for pasta and also needed something quick and easy that would do for two nights dinner. I found this gem in one of the old WW magazines - no idea which one as I had pulled out the page and put it in a folder. I have to say this really hit the spot and it was a really decent sized portion. It looked so good I forgot to take a picture before I ate it so I took a picture of the leftovers.

Weigh In 44

I DID IT!! I have now officially lost 50lbs, a loss of 2lbs this week brought me to 50.5lbs. Not only that but I got my seventh silver 7 and I am now within a healthy BMI. Hitting 3 mini goals in the one week feels great.

I find it increasingly difficult to judge how I've done each week the closer I get to goal.

Saturday Breakfast!!

We weren't in the mood for bread this morning and my OH is not a fan of omelettes so I decided to try something a little different and make homemade potato cakes and poached eggs. Only 5pp and it hits the spot for something a little different.

Recipe Book Review!

I got a great new recipe book this weekend, and it made me think about the ones I already have. I have to admit I don't have many. I have always just used weigh watcher recipe books, for the convenience of things being pointed for me. I realised this weekend that its really not that difficult to work the propoints out. So I am going to start investing in some other low fat recipe books but for now this review will be very heavily Weight Watcher recipe book based.

Weigh In 43

Gonna be a quick post this week. I am down the pound I was up last week. I was secretly hoping for a little bit more - I wanted to be down a little bit more, I am now back where I was 2 weeks ago. Despite my initial disappointed I am happy. It is another step closer to goal and this close to goal I have to take every loss.

Cumin Spiced Butternut Squash Soup

I have been meaning to make soup since the weather turned and my mum bought me a lovely hand blender so I had no excuse other than laziness not too. Well I finally got around to it yesterday and made a huge pot of soup for lunches this week. Really very tasty and warming!! Recipe came from the Complete Kitchen - my favourite Weight Watcher Cookbook!!
