Sup, nuggets? MMM NUGGETS!
WELL! I’ve had a pretty darn tootin’ good week – but I don’t think I’ve lost anything again! BOO! I had a bit of a meltdown on my groups FB page and was all WAAAAAH, but like people pointed out, I lost 7lbs over two weeks, not losing for a week or two isn’t a bad thing, it could be that my body is adjusting, and no matter what I am still putting healthier things into it.
Sometimes with SW I don’t think I eat enough, some days I don’t have any syns at all, I rarely reach 15, so next week I think I am going to try and start eating at LEAST my 5 a day, I did that for the first two weeks and oh look, I lost weight! But the scales will tell tomorrow, also I’ve measured myself, so maybe I’ll have lost half an inch or something instead of a lb!
I did my first attempt yesterday at the Slimming World Roulade. Boy oh BOY was I surprised at how well it turned out and how tasty it was! Definitely no Victoria Sponge with lashings of buttercream, but a good fix for a sweet tooth.
Here it is! I was soooo proud of it! I honestly thought it would taste like cold sugary omelette with yoghurty soft cheese and fruit, but it didn’t and it definitely did the trick, that whole thing up there is 3syns for the ENTIRE thing, and that only happened because I shoved a White Chocolate Options sachet in with the Quark mixture for a bit of a better taste.
Here is the recipe:
Serves 1-6 (depending on how greedy you’re feeling!)
Virtually syn-free on all plans
5 tablespoons granulated sweetener
1 teaspoon baking powder (0.5 syns)
2 x 1 teaspoons vanilla extract
100g 0% fromage frais (or muller light/whatever)
fruit of your choice, or you could use jam (2 syns per tablespoon)
Separate the eggs and beat the whites until stiff
In another bowl, mix the yolks, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, baking powder, half the quark and 4 tablespoons of the sweetener
Whisk half of the egg whites into the yolks mixture, then carefully fold in the rest
Pour mixture into a tray lined with baking paper. Bake in a pre-heated 180C oven for 20 minutes or until golden and cooked
Mix the remaining quark, fromage frais, 1 tablespoon sweetener and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (I added White Chocolate Options at this point too – 2.5 syns)
Spread the fromage frais mixture over the cooled cake and top with fruit (I used 150g raspberries) or jam or whatever (remember to syn!)
Roll up and serve
The eldest child had some, other ppl had some, some looked at it and was like LOLNOPE – but overall, I am impressed!
GOD BLESS THE FOOD ANOMALY THAT IS QUARK!
