Man of the Year Celebrations

This week in group we will be celebrating the success of gentlemen members so lets have a party! Its a perfect opportunity to be inspired and motivated in your weight loss journey- Chatting to other members, trying new foods and of course being inspired by the success of our Great Wyrley man of the year winners. If you've not been to a Slimming World food party before you are in for a treat! Its a lovely opportunity to try different recipes and foodie ideas. Il provide all the plates and cutlery, all you need to do is bring is some food and yourself. If you cant bring food we totally understand, its no problem just bring yourself, we love to share. However if you don't want to come empty handed can always bring a bottle of pop. The essential thing is to come, you wont regret it!

Love Food - Love Food Optimising

Valentines Day already and we are in the mood for love - the love of free foods! 
So lets have a party! If you've not been to a Slimming World food party before you are in for a treat! Its a lovely opportunity to try different recipes and foodie ideas. Il provide all the plates and cutlery, all you need to do is bring is some food and yourself. If you cant bring food we totally understand, its no problem just bring yourself, we love to share. However if you don't want to come empty handed can always bring a bottle of pop. But of course it would be lovely if everyone bought a little something to eat and share. The more food the better! 
I cant stress how vital it is to come to group next week. Free food February is all about reminding how important free foods are to food optimising and the fabulous filling power they have. To share our favourite meals with each other alongside support and encouragement what could be a better way to start your new Slimming World week!

Broccoli & Cheese Soup

Well this soup seems to have become the new 'thing' at Great Wyrley Slimming World thanks to Andrea who shared with us this recipe a couple of weeks ago. I keep seeing pictures of this soup, Ive had lots of texts from members who are enjoying it and Ive even got some of it myself in the fridge!
You HAVE to try this, it is soupmazing!



2 full broccoli roughly chopped including the stalks
2 vegetable stock cubes made into stock
chopped garlic to taste
1 onion roughly chopped
4 Laughing Cow blue cheese triangles

Add the broccoli, onion and garlic to a large pan and just a out cover with the stock. Bring to the boil and simmer until veg is cooked.
Leave to slightly cool then blitz up to make nice and smooth. Add the laughing cow triangles and stir until melted. Blitz a little to ensure mixed well.

Eat!

This soup is 6 syns in total. You can alter the quantity of cheese depending on taste and amend the syns accordingly.
