Whilst you certainly don’t have to eat “on plan” over Christmas I always feel that it is worth looking at each element of your dinner/drinks and deciding then which choice to make. Here I share with you some of the choices you can make and the difference they could make! Please remember these are approximate as everyone cooks things slightly differently but to give you an idea!

Chinese Fakeaway – A Healthy Feast of a Takeaway!
We all love Chinese don’t we especially at the weekend or with friends. It is one of the main things that can get in our way when we are trying to lose weight though, the love of takeaways and socialising with food versus the wish to lose weight! Last weekend my best friend was coming over for an evening of gossiping, drinks and food so I decided to cook a Chinese so we could save our syns (we all follow Slimming World) for the drinks! It turned out we had far more to drink that the daily syn allowance but it would have been worse with an actual take away! Here I will share what I made and maybe you will enjoy it too.
