Here is my latest vegan meal plan. This time it has slimming world (SW) references with syns and heathy extras (HEA & HEB) in brackets. Unless otherwise stated my HEA is soya or oat milk for hot drinks.
I joined slimming world three weeks ago and this was my first week on plan. I have lost weight with slimming world before I was ill so I know it works and is a good healthy way to eat generally. Now I am feeling a lot better in many ways, it is time to get healthier again. In three weeks I have lost 11.5lbs which I am amazed at. I was worried that due to my slow metabolism (bone marrow transplant slows it down as does the menopause) it would be a slow slog but this has boosted me, although I do expect it will slow a bit now, but as long as it moves in the right direction I will be happy!
