Super Speed....y

I know just how hard it is to find an eating plan that fits in with a hectic life.  I work full time and I do some form of exercise every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday then on Thursday evenings I'm at my Slimming World group.  Add to that a daughter who's a fussy eater and it's almost like I'm fighting a losing battle and thoughts of shoving a pizza in the oven seem an easier option.

I never go for the easy option though so I've found meals that are quick, simple and tasty.  On Tuesday I go to Zumba, as I head out of the door I shove a jacket potato in the oven for fussy daughter and it's almost done when I get home.  When I get home I quickly slice some mushrooms and tomatoes and fry them in a pan, using Fry Light of course!  I add to that some of a frozen stir mix from Tesco that has zero SYNs and all speed food.
I add to that some fish, this week is was Sea Bass.
And 10 minutes later it's on the plate, that really is fast food!  I get to enjoy a meal packed with speed foods while fussy daughter enjoys her jacket potato.
After dinner I like to have a dessert and these soya yoghurts are amazing!  They come in three flavours and range from 1 to 1.5 SYNs, they're thick and creamy and I really feel like I'm having something naughty at the end of my meal.
Even Alfie loves them :)
Nowadays there are so many different, pre prepared foods available that it's really  not hard to make your eating plan work for you.

I hope this helps someone.

Thanks for stopping by

I think it's easy to get 'suckered in' to those pre-packaged supermarket foods, when in actual fact it takes no more time than if you cook the rice yourself, & cook up a fast stir fry..... it's all a matter of having the recipes & ingredients on hand, being a bit organised eh? BTW....looks yummy!!!

Producing good, healthy home cooked food doesn't have to be time consuming. With a little bit of forward thinking and planning you can cook up something yummy in no time. Your stir fry looks lovely - one of my fave things and with WW (the plan I am on) its pretty much point free.

That looks so handy and delicious. I love the idea of pepping up the frozen mix with mushrooms and tomatoes.
