Rich & Hearty Soup from Knorr...

Grabbed this for lunch... 4SP for the whole 390g pouch! I triple checked just to be sure I wasn't reading half asleep! A meal in itself! You could easily only eat half the pack for lunch with a sandwich/bagel/wrap.... so tasty too! If you're not a soup maker these are the business! Anyone tried any other flavours? x

Flavoured pasta from The Foodie Market!

Spotted these in my local Aldi... I'm all for mixing things up when it comes to pasta... I get a bit bored with the wholegrain stuff sometimes so when I spotted these I thought I'd give them a go... SmartPoints are for 180g serving of cooked pasta on the pack... 180g cooked = 100g uncooked, so I've done the SPs for both... Also half a portion if you're like me and trying to cut the barbs out and bulk up the veggies! Anyone tried them? x

The hardest lift...

I know it's all 'New Year New Me!' this time of year but it's no easier in January to get off the couch  than it is in the middle of the summer even if you do buy fancy new trainers!!! I'm the first to close the front door when there's a sniff of rain in case I dissolve but honestly 5 mins out the door and back makes all the difference... You don't need to be training for a marathon or the olympics, there's no race on... just get some fresh cold winter air in your lungs and have the chats with a pal, listen to a podcast whatever your thing is but get out there... make yourself a little promise today... pop on your runners, open the door and walk for 5 mins, even if you have to leave in a huff with the dog just storm out... for no other reason than to see what the neighbours are up to!! (Mine have a new car! Fancy much?!) then walk back and you're done! Try it every day you won't regret it! 

Janet Just Delicious!

A lovely range of sauces from Janet's Just Delicious... These were in my local Supervalu and there's no added sugar or salt in them so they're full of flavour and low in SmartPoints... Definitely one to have in the cupboard for emergencies! Anyone else tried them out?

Proper Lentil Chips

I'm always looking for my crisp fix... you can keep your left over Christmas choccies (I've heard rumours people leave some behind in the tin!?!?! I KNOW!) I'm a crisp junkie... Soon as the meetings are set up for me and my kind, I'll be front of the queue to join! Spotted these in my first big shop of the year and resisted temptation since I didn't have time to work out the points for them but they're going on the list... Anyone tried them yet? x
