I’m sorry I’ve neglected you! It’s been a busy start to 2016, and it doesn’t look like letting up any time soon, but I’ve still managed a little time in the kitchen!
This particular recipe is an old favourite from my pre-fatclub days, but I tweaked it a little to be healthier. It’s still not goody-two-shoes, but it certainly works within Slimming World limits! It tastes like it shouldn’t!
Anyway, it’s taken long enough to get this far, let’s not wait any longer. Get stuck in!
It was my birthday last week, and suffice to say I over-indulged. For a whole week. I’ve been very proud of my weight-loss success since joining Fat Club between Christmas & New Year, but in the space of this week, I put on half a stone! Oops!
As we’re getting closer to Summer Holiday time, here’s one to kick-start the beach body regimes! It’s very very slightly adapted from a Slimming World recipe.
I’ve never made any secret about the fact that my favourite restaurant in the whole wide world is Wahaca. I love their Mexican street food so much that I bought their founder’sbook, and it’s amazing! Every recipe made my mouth water, and the way it’s put together is nothing short of beautiful.
I’m also facing the conclusion of my second week of fat club, and wondered if I could adapt something to fit in with the Slimming World ethos, without skimping on flavour.
This recipe started life as Thomasina Miers’ Summery Spinach and Feta Tacos, and the filling remains pretty true to her recipe. All I’ve really changed is the cooking and serving methods (and of course the name, ever so slightly!).
The feta and fresh mint in this recipe did make it as Summery as the original title implies, and I found it delightfully tasty! Served up with some paprika & garlic sweet potato wedges, two of these wraps were enough to fill me up, and totalled 13 syns (that’s Slimming World’s points system, and I’m allowed up to 15 a day). See the Tidy tweaks section for ways to bring that down even further!
With England bowing out in the World Cup’s group stage for the first time since 1958, and Andy Murray’s defence of his Wimbledon title getting underway, it seemed fitting that we go for something Classically British this week. And so we have our first ever Guest Spot at TidyMunch – it’s from Nell, and is her latest take on a familiar favourite from my childhood.
