Sticky Satay Noodles – 1.5 syns

This amazing bowl of yumness came from an experiment one day when I was trying to make my lunch more protein-packed and exciting.

I’ve tried it two ways:

  1. Make Super Noodles(the low fat ones are FREE) as per instructions but add the dark soy sauce and peanut butter powder and it comes out all sticky and yummy.
  2. If you make plain noodles, remove them from the heat 2-3 minutes early, pour the majority of the water away and add the peanut butter and dark soy sauce – if you add the sauce when noodles are slightly under cooked they absorb the sauce and go really nice.

This tastes really naughty – yet comes in at 1.5 syns…

I’d love to know what you think – please try it and let me know; tag me on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook!

Recipe Notes

The beauty of this recipe is that you can make it as simple or as fancy as you like - you can use Super Noodles for a quick meal or snack; the low fat ones are syn free and come out lovely!

I have used peanut butter powder as it is lower syns and it comes out really nice - almost creamy.  You can use any peanut butter, just syn accordingly.

I leave the veg nice and chunky and it tastes just like chinese chow mein.

I’ve posted loads over the last however many months about my mental health; I apologise as some of it is a little mashed up but that’s just the way mental illness is.

My GP has been treating me for depression for years and now I have been referred to a secondary service(again) I’ve received a diagnosis of sorts. Continue reading “My mental health – I’ve reached a crossroads”

I’m not Insta-ready… do I care?

I feel like this is coming from an angry place and I don’t know why – but I want to talk about Instagram and why it winds me up so much.

The premise of Insta is simple; post a square photo, chuck in some hashtags and people will like and comment on your posts.  Simple right? Continue reading “I’m not Insta-ready… do I care?”

I love you, even when it rains

I’ve never written my birth story.  A few people have told me it’s strange that I haven’t when I have written so openly and honestly about everything else.

I’ve tried so many times; and I end up so traumatised and upset that I can’t continue. Continue reading “I love you, even when it rains”
