What I Ate Wednesday - Sarah V

Wednesday, 11 September 2013

I’ll be honest, when I’m on a diet, I eat very similarly day in, day out. In the winter, I have soup for lunch pretty much every day – and sure, I mix up the soup flavours, but nine times out of ten, I go back to the same ones (because they’re the BEST ONES).

I had a day recently where I ate a bit differently, so thought it was a good one to include here. Particularly because there’s a VERY surprising treat included... I’m a bit amazed I could get it in too and still be under my 26PP!

2 Alpen Light bars – 3PP

These are a godsend when you know you are going to have a bad day, or are eating on the run. Originally I thought they were quite high at 2PP each, but they’re victims to WW’s rounding up/rounding down policy. In reality they are probably about 1.6PP each – which would be rounded up to 2 - meaning that two is 3.2PP – which would be rounded down to 3! So useful – I always try to have a box of these at work and also at home. The Lemon Drizzle ones are so tasty but the Cherry Bakewell are the best ones!

Sainsbury’s Sweet & Salt Popcorn – 2PP

I am obsessed with these mini popcorn packets – they tend to hit the spot so much more than crisps as they satisfy the sweet and savoury craving all at once. The bags look small, but it’s more than enough for a snack. They’re amazing.

Aubergine Parmigiana – 5PP

This is the recipe I posted a little while ago. I ended up having it for lunch every day that week – it reheated beautifully and everyone in the office was jealous. Plus, the halloumi chunks... yum. Having a slightly lower than usual lunch always makes a difference later in the day.

Krispy Kreme Donut – 9PP

WHAT WHAT? You heard me right, I managed to factor in a Krispy Kreme. You also heard me right, it is almost double the points of my lunch. I didn’t plan to have this, but someone brought them into work and I couldn’t resist. The best thing is I was already intending to have a low dinner, so it’s totally allowed!

Butternut Squash Lasagne – 6PP
15g Cathedral City Light – 1PP

Bloody love this lasagne! It’s a really filling, tasty dinner, but shockingly low in points. The perfect recipe to make when you’re trying to have a good week, or perhaps trying to get back on track after a bad one!

Water & Diet Coke

I drink about 3 litres of water a day, and sometimes allow myself a Diet Coke when I need a caffeine hit. I'm trying to get out of the one a day habit though - even though it's calorie free, it's so bad for you!

Total = 26PP exactly


  1. I'm impressed that you manage 3 litres of water. I really struggle with my water intake! It's always nice to remember that you can treat yourself and still lose weight. If I want a cheeky chocolate bar I just remember to up my exercise :) xx

  2. Quite jealous of that Krispy Kreme doughnut right now! I'm doing SW and always have enough syns left over for a treat but just feel too naughty to have them!
    I'm sure that'll change after a while on the plan! xx

  3. I didn't know that lemon drizzle alpen bars existed but I really want to try them now!x
