When I started Slimming World back in October last year, I never thought I would still be sticking to diet now nearly 9 months later! So far I have lost 2 stone 4.5lbs, which for Mrs Sweet-tooth over here, I’m really surprised to have lost so much. I even had a few month break from April to June when I hit a bit of a wall and couldn’t budge any more weight.
I rejoined group earlier this month (dragging some friends along with me this time) and I’m really enjoying being back in a group support system. In a way it shames me into not eating all the crap in the house because I’ll have to justify it to a lot of other women who are supporting me along the way.
I’ve had a bad week this week for food; being sent away for a work conference and networking event, meant lots of free biscuits and alcohol…meant the syns added up! Now with just 2 days until weigh in and home alone the pressure to eat healthily is hard!
So today, sat in my flat alone I decided to try out some of the syn free recipes on the website. Below is just one of the recipes you can try out and it only needs 3 ingredients!
You will need:
2 tbsp of Quark
2 tsp of sweetener
- Whisk the egg and mix it into 1 tbsp of Quark, you may want to stir the quark first without the egg as it can start quite thick! Stir together with 1 tsp of sweetener to make a pancake batter.
- Stir the remaining quark and sweetener together to make an alternative to cream.
- Cook the batter as you would a normal pancake over a high heat for a few minutes.
- Serve together with fruit to be even healthier!
For those that have a real sweet tooth why not also try my 3 ingredient, virtually low syn chocolate cake too. You won’t be disappointed!
