As part of Global Week at Nottingham Trent Uni, at Fly FM we decided to film a cooking programme of international foods. My contribution was a slightly adapted version of Slimming World’s sweet and sour recipe. I added tinned pineapple which you would need to syn for, but without it it’s 1 syn per portion. Enjoy my many bemused facial expressions!
Dietwhatdiet.com is back after an inadvertent hiatus… I’ve still been baking and creating, I set up and ran my own sewing business, designing and handmaking bags and accessories, before returning to university at the grand old age of 29 to study Broadcast Journalism.
What with working from home and being busy, my weight went up to around 16st at my heaviest, due to a cycle of bed — desk — sewing table — bed again. Exercise was something other people did, and commuting 8 hours to an office in London occasionally meant poor diet choices too.
So here I am! December 28th 2015 I decided to throw away the Christmas chocolate and join Slimming World in Nottingham. 8 weeks later and I’ve lost 1 stone 6lb, I have a couple more stone to go but making progress with weekly losses. I cook most meals from scratch, so I’ll be posting Slimming World friendly recipes and creations on here.
The mulled wine crumble and cake recipes are still very popular so I will be leaving them up here, but they aren’t SW friendly I’m afraid! I’ll have a go at synning them at some point but you’d probably be better off avoiding.
