One thing I’m asked for a lot is a banana free version of the flourless pancakes that are popular with us WWers so when I woke up the other morning with a craving for some drop scones (or scotch pancakes as many call them), I set about creating myself some banana free, WW friendly ones (albeit these ones do have flour in them!!). The result was lovely, tasting very close to the real thing for many less points!
After I made my delicious Foil Baked Cod with Romesco Sauce and Greens recipe, I had a couple of portions of Romesco sauce left over. Whilst I could have used it the next night with chicken or steak, I thought instead I would try and incorporate it into a nice and simple breakfast recipe. This is just that. Low in carbs and points but packed with flavour, this breakfast can be a weekend treat or, since it is so quick to pull together, a weekday option too.
I’m a big fan of porridge but, after I’ve had it a few days in a row, I get a little bored of the same thing. After thinking of new ways to jazz up my other baked oats recipe I thought, what better way to do that than to add chocolate!! The result was delicious. Chocolaty and so indulgent tasting and all for 6sp!!
My hubbie thinks I’m a bit of a weird one as breakfast is often my favourite meal of the day, especially at weekends when I have a chance to spend a little longer thinking about what I might have! This little recipe came about after we had baked sweet potatoes and corn on the cobs for our tea the night before. I made extra so I had leftovers and this quick and tasty little breakfast recipe was the result. Best of all, now sweetcorn and eggs are both free, this recipe is only 4sp per serving!
Brunch, probably my favourite meal of them all (mostly because it’s acceptable to have a glass of prosecco with it). The beauty of a combined meal means you can also afford to spend a few further points on it than you would in breakfast or lunch separately and this recipe is certainly worth doing just that for!
Having seen someone tucking into a hash stack at a local café (and practically drooling over their plate) it I knew I would have to make my own healthy version of this lovely colourful dish. The result was delightful. If you want to alter the amounts of sweet potato vs BNS feel free to do so but remember to amend the points to suit (pop it back through the recipe creator). Otherwise give it a whirl, you won’t be disappointed!
Note: I buy the pre diced mixed packs of sweet potato and BNS from Sainsbury’s for this recipe to save chopping up a whole one of each. If you can’t find this and have to use one of each, roast the rest and whack it in a soup!
The main buffet restaurant in the hotel we stayed at in Mexico was amazing. I’m usually very fussy about ‘buffet’ style food (I often feel like you never get a proper meal) but there were so many areas where fabulous food was being cooked fresh in front of you, I would probably have been happy to eat here every night (I didn’t though, there were another 9 restaurants to choose from!).
People are always asking me for quick and easy lunch ideas and so I’m always on the look out for new ideas. I put this one together when I came across Warburton’s new Seeded Bagel Thins. For only 4sp they are a great alternative to a sandwich with bread. The recipe below is a twist on a classic BLT sandwich with a few added extras to ramp up the flavour.
I adore brunch. It has fast become my favourite meal of the weekend. Whether I make it in the house or we eat out, I love the variety of foods and flavours you get at this unique meal time. This weekend I visited one of my favourite brunch cafe’s and indulged myself in their self styled ‘bacon and eggs’. Granary toast, delicious bacon, poached egg, avocado, pesto dressing and hollandaise sauce, it was absolute heaven! However as nice as it was, I knew I couldn’t be indulging like this every weekend so I decided to make my own low propoint version of the dish.
This is one of my favourite recipes to whip up for Sunday brunch or even for a late supper if you aren’t feeling too hungry. It’s so quick and simple but the flavours are amazing. My OH was practically licking the plate! You can customise this recipe til your hearts content. I’ve added pepper with the onion before or even a large handful of spinach. Continue reading
