Ive been a bit quiet on the blogging/social media front this past week or so but work has just been so busy plus there is stuff going on in the background too. I’ve also not been to Slimming World for the last couple of weeks. One reason was there was a Body Shop event and that sounded like a lot more fun but also I have just started some new medication which is making me put on weight. I didn’t see much point in going just now when I’m gaining weight. I am still food optimising though so I’m hoping that the gains are minimal.
On Sundays we tend to eat brunch as we tend to get up later plus there is no work to rush off for and we can just have a leisurely morning. Usually we eat it while Mr M is watching
crap Wheeler Dealers on tv. Today I decided to have a sit down brunch at the kitchen table and use it for what it was meant for rather than dumping letters that come through the post or for cats to sleep on. So what did we have for our syn free brunch?
For the main dish we had gluten free toasted ciabatta, topped with smoked salmon and scrambled eggs with chives. I also added garlic mushrooms with fresh parsley and a grilled tomato on the side. We also had fresh strawberries, raspberries, pineapple chunks and watermelon slices for some speed. I used the ciabatta as my HexA choice but if you were to syn it a Schar ciabatta is 4.5 syns. Everything we ate was syn free.
Other ideas for a syn free brunch is a cooked breakfast, kedgeree or potato hash topped with poached eggs. For speed foods, slice some fruit and place in bowls for people to help themselves or steam some asparagus for on the side. If you are lazy like me you can even buy some of the fruit already sliced so all you need to do is open the packet and arrange on a plate. If you fancy adding in a few syns to your brunch then sausages, pancakes or waffles sound pretty worthy of making appearance.
What kind of things do you enjoy for brunch?
