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.

Explaining veggie life to a toddler

I came across an interesting thing today.

My son and husband are both meat eaters and I cook them meals containing meat daily.

I’m vegetarian because I don’t like the taste of meat; there’s no political or radical reason, I just can’t stomach it and I decided to give it up. Continue reading “Explaining veggie life to a toddler”

A complete change in “diet”

Note I use the term “diet” loosely – I’m a huge believer in finding something that is a change for life and not just a quick faddy thing.

As mentioned before I have been on and off the Slimming World wagon more times than I care to remember and as much as I love it I find it incredibly hard to stick to long term. Continue reading “A complete change in “diet””
