Piri piri turkey burgers with BBQ stir fry & eesp cottage pie with veg x

Today’s gorge eesp food.

Breakfast was 35g of tesco blueberry wheats and berries. Not impressed. You don’t get many and they didn’t fill me up at all!! Won’t be having these again, which will please my bf as he loves them!

Lunch. Piri piri turkey burgers and stir fry. Mega quick and simple. I buy less than 3% fat turkey mince from tesco. Just mix this up with seasoning, a splash of soy sauce and Swartz piri piri spices. Divide it up, roll in to a burger shape and pan fry on both sides until cooked through. The stir fry was gorge, I had it with chopped chillies, ginger and garlic, soy sauce then the rest of yesterday’s spicy BBQ sauce. Recipe is in last nights post if you search through.

Dessert was fat free cottage cheese, sweetener and chocolate flavouring with berries. Syn free.

Dinner. Cottage pie with a swede mash topping. This recipe is from our website but I amended it slightly. Here’s the original :-


1kg swede, peeled and chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Low calorie cooking spray
1 red onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 celery sticks, finely chopped
2 carrots, peeled and finely chopped
500g lean beef mince (5% fat or less)
400g can chopped tomatoes
1 tbsp vegetable stock
1 tsp sweetener
2 tsp dried oregano
1 egg, lightly beaten

Cook the swede in a saucepan of lightly salted boiling water for 12-15 minutes or until tender. Drain, return to the pan and mash until smooth. Season well and set aside.
Meanwhile, spray a large non-stick frying pan with low calorie cooking spray and place over a high heat. Add the onion, garlic, celery and carrots and stir-fry for 5 minutes. Add the mince and stir-fry for 5 minutes, then add the tomatoes, stock, sweetener and oregano and stir well. Bring to the boil and remove from the heat
Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C Fan/Gas 6.
Transfer the beef mixture to a casserole dish and spread the mashed swede over the top, smoothing the surface with a fork (adding a pattern if you like). Brush with the beaten egg and bake for 25-30 minutes or until lightly golden and bubbling. Serve with purple sprouting broccoli, mange tout and green beans.

I did the singing swede, ie just pop it in the microwave for about 20 minutes then chop up and mash. I used turkey mince as it needed using and I added a beef stock cube crumbled in, left out the egg and added some chilli flakes and Worcestershire sauce. It was gorgeous!!!

I had mine with lots of veg and my creamy horseradish cabbage. The nicest way to make this is to pan fry the cabbage with some garlic, add chicken stock, quark and a tsp of horse radish, I sometimes add a tbs of Philly extra light too to make it creamier, but I didn’t have any and didn’t want the syns anyway. It’s best with Savoy cabbage. I only used half a tsp of horseradish today as I was just cooking for myself.

Dessert was quark, shock ha ha and mint options with berries. 2 syns. Snack after the gym, as breakfast didn’t fill me up was a rocky road hi fi and come carrot sticks.

Loads of speed foods 🙂 the more speed you choose the more weigh you’ll lose. I’m going to drive my members mad with this saying lol!!!

I also did an early 45 minute spin class and a 45 minute body pump before work today. I’m really trying to work on my legs! I’ve always had bigger legs than my upper body, well most people do lol, you’d look a bit weird with massive legs as arms!! My inner thighs and legs have always been my nemesis!!! I’d kill for long slim legs, but thanks to my darling mother I’ve never had them!! When I was at my slimmest and running loads they looked better. So even though I hate running, I think I need to start again!! I do mainly classes, which I love, I really need to do more weights again. My only issue is I suffer with an achy clicky right shoulder. Weights always make it worse, but I love it!!! Luckily there’s a beauty room at my gym, so I had a massage straight after to work out the knots. It was amazing and so needed!!!! I had a mix of a bamboo massage and hand massage. I’ve also got a spikey ball that I use at home. You lie on the floor with it underneath your shoulder and basically move around lol!! I really hope my neighbours have never seen me doing this!! They’ll think I’m mental!!!

Enough of my rambling now,

Have a fab night! Bring on cbb!!

Happy Fopping xx

  1. HI, i’m going to be giving SP a go this week and i’m just wondering if you eat all of your HEB or do you find a greater weightloss if you just have one HEB a day as per Extra Easy?
