Firstly, I would like to introduce myself as Katy! I have been following slimming world (Extra easy) for 3 weeks and 3 days exactly and I've lost around 7 pounds (I will try to keep this exact from now on, I've not really been weighing myself up to now!)
I originally joined slimming world last year and lost 9 pounds in a month (fantastic!) then I went on holiday and never really got back into it.
I decided to give it another try this year and have been sticking to it really well so far!
So, my first slimming world meal/recipe is something I found online. A simple Arrabiata sauce which I had with chicken, pasta and a small salad on the side.
1 x onion
2 x garlic cloves
2 x chillies (or however many you want dependent how spicy you like it!)
500g passata (original recipe said 400g but I found it to be the perfect consistency with 500g)
200ml vegetable stock
Fry your onions, garlic cloves and chillies until soft (around 10 - 15 minutes)
Add passata and vegetable stock, bring to the boil and then simmer for 15 - 20 minutes whilst cooking your chicken, pasta and preparing your salad! (if that's what you fancy!)
I just had lettuce and tomatoes in my salad but of course you can have whatever you fancy! I also cooked the chicken separately and added to the sauce at the end before pouring over the pasta, I imagine you can cook the chicken with the onions, garlic and chillies though! Let me know if you have tried this before and prefer this method!
I will be sharing as much as possible in the future, I know how much I enjoy browsing through people's recipes. Of course, there won't be as much text next time!
