Many people, including myself have made a New Year’s resolution to lose weight. I attend Slimming World on a Wednesday night and it was there I met Frances. As you can see from the photograph on the left Frances is now very fit as opposed to how she was only a few years ago. (Far left in the photograph). Frances has lost a staggering 10 stone!
Frances like me, enjoys cooking so I am going to share a recipe each week which follows Slimming World guidelines. This week I am using my own Leek & Potato Soup recipe.
2 vegetable stock cubes
2 laughing cow cheese spread triangles (purple wrappers are the very low fat ones)
Low fat natural yoghurt for stirring in when cooked
Steam vegetables & when cooked blitz to required consistency ie some may like more lumps/texture than others. Pour 1 pint of boiling water into a jug, crumble in stock cubes and add cheese triangles and whisk until all is a liquid. Add to leek and potato mixture in pan and stir until thick. Season add yoghurt and serve.
I enjoy Slimming World – we have a great laugh! Last week I was nominated to be the person who greets new members as they enter class! Wonder why? lol!
