Slimming World – Week 4

Slimming World Weekly Update

Ok, so weigh-in wasn’t as bad as I thought it might have been considering how horrible of a week I’ve had.

I put on 0.5lb.

I can’t keep going up and down like this now that we’re getting close to the wedding so from now on I will be going all out, I need to sit down with Dean and work out a meal plan for the rest of the week and I’ll be making some of the yummy Guilt Free Egg Custard Tarts to have as treats. I’ve signed a pledge with some of the other ladies in my group and have said I aim to lose 1.5 stone by the end of the year – better get this squishy bum of mine in gear!

Anyone got any tips for getting on track and staying there?

Guilt Free Egg Custard Tarts

slimming world guilt free egg custard tarts

This easy-peasy recipe for Slimming World Guilt Free Egg Custard Tarts is AMAZING! It tastes so close to the real thing that it’s hard to believe that it’s Syn Free

When you are trying to eat healthy and stick to a diet plan it’s always nice when you discover a guilt free treat that you can enjoy to curb your cravings. I was a bit skeptical at how nice these would be as I’ve tried Slimming World treat recipes in the past and been sorely disappointed (anything that uses quark is a no go in my opinion!) but these are delicious! I’m gong to be trying as many new recipes as possible over the coming weeks and will be sharing any that I find to be particularly good.

So, here’s my recipe for
Slimming World Guilt Free Egg Custard Tarts
(To make 6 tarts)
Ingredients
3 eggs
2 Muller Light Banana and Custard
Granulated Sweetener (I use 1 Tbsp but add to your taste)
Vanilla essence
Nutmeg

Guilt Free Egg Custard Tarts

You will also need silicon cupcake cases and a deep baking tray to sit them in that can be filled with water to create a Bain-marie

slimming world guilt free egg custard tarts

  1. Whisk 3 eggs together and add a few drops of vanilla essence
  2. Add your pot of muller light to the beaten eggs with your granulated sweetener and mix together until well combined (it can look like it’s going a bit lumpy but keep mixing and it’ll go smooth)
  3. Once it’s all combined you can pour it into your cupcake cases. I always fill it until a little way from the top, they don’t puff up but I like a bit of wiggle room so that I don’t spill when putting it in the oven!
  4. Sprinkle with nutmeg and fill the tray with water (again, not too close to the top of the cupcake cases – you don’t want to slosh water into your tarts when you put it in the oven!)
  5. Carefully put it in the oven at around 180c for a fan oven for 20mins. Once they are done you can pull the tray out and take each tart out of the water to cool down.

They should keep in the fridge for 3-4 days.

Have you tried any good Slimming World treat recipies?

Slimming World – Week 1

Slimming World Weekly update

So I’m one week in to Slimming World and I’ve lost…drumroll….4lbs!

It’s not been the easiest week, I’m still getting my head around what I can pack for my lunch and cook for dinner but I think I’m getting the hang of it. I’ve been looking up recipies to try out over the next few weeks and will share any good ones I find.

Is anyone else on Slimming World and blogging about it? Leave me a comment with your links

Welcome to Mushaville

Some of you might know me already, (there are already around 150 of you following this blog on Bloglovin from last year before I decided to have a redesign/do-over, some of you may even know me from my various blog incarnations over the past decade or so – I’ve been around the blog block a fair few times!) but for those of you that don’t…

Hi I’m Charlotte and this little piece of the internet is called Mushaville

I’m not going to go into too much in this post as I’ll share more about myself and the blog in the next few days. I don’t necessarily have an aim for this blog, it’s more that I seem to have a need to blog, it doesn’t matter how many times I drift away from blogging I always crave to get back to it – so that’s it really, no pressure to churn out posts or gain the most followers, just my own little piece of the internet to empty out my brain into and record life!

Why did you start your blog? Leave me a link to your blog down below and I’ll be sure to pop over and say Hello
