Healthy lunch and weightloss…

Don’t tell me you’re not curious… I tell you I want to loose weight and the next posts are all about sweet goodness and high sugar treats.. Well, I can proudly tell you that I have lost 5 kilo sofar, in a little over four weeks, so I am very proud of myself!ย  I love the whole Weight Watchers program (they are not paying me to say this though!!) where you have the flexibility of saving points to use if you have a dinner, or add more exercise so you can eat more; it’s stuff like that, that makes it perfect for me. I try and plan my meals for the week so I know where the problem areas/days are gonna be. If I am out of inspiration to come up with healthy meals myself, there is always the ww website with plenty of lovely and tasty ideas for lunch or dinner. So I am never out of ideas really (as if I would ever, with a gazillion cookbooks and magazines lying around!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ) and this small lunch was another tasty example. I mean it’s rather basic, but I love ryebread and this is with philadelphia and gardencress.. Very tasty!

I even managed to do the Daring Bakers challenge for this month ahead of time! How good is that.

Saturday Tom and I are going to try out the table smoker that we recieved as a gift from his parents and the idea is to smoke a very freshly caught trout. It was caught on sunday and frozen (after cleaning) straight away, so it should be fresh. We have never smoked anything before, so I am curious how it is gonna turn out but I will for sure let you know all about it! If you hae any tips on how best to smoke a trout… please let me know!

  10. Congratulations, Simone! That is great and I wish I could find your self-control! But if someone prepared a wonderful lunch like this for me everyday then maybe I could…finally get my husband on a diet ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Congratulations on your weight loss! And good luck on the smoked trout! I have never smoked anything before and I’m looking forward to seeing how it comes out! ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Congrats on your weight loss! I’m glad to hear its going well. What a coincidence, I finished the DB challenge early too, for once! And I really want to know how the smoked trout turns out, so do keep us posted!

  13. That’s awesome news Simone, I’m so proud! Keep it up! ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Way to go Simone! You should write the WW points on each recipe too, for the others on the same program.

  15. Congrats on your recent weight loss, dear Simone!! Yeah to you!!

    This tasty filled rye bread looks so appetizing!!!
    MMMMM,..!!

  16. Good for you on the weight loss. Curious how that smoked trout will be. I should go back to weight watchers again. It’s a great program.

  17. Congratulations! I think WW is the best. You have the flexibility to eat what you want in moderation. Good looking sandwich.

  18. Nothing is more appealing than fresh, delicious, beautiful food. It is irresistible!!! And, Simone, congratulations on your incredible weight loss. I know how difficult that is, and do not want to discourage you from being healthy, but you do look gorgeous as you are. Being active and fit is how I see you. But, if you are getting ready for the winter cold and feasting period, that makes sense… or, if you just needed a little boost. I have had a huge issue with weight the last couple of years. I try not to let it get to me, but it is always there. So, BRAVO to you!
