10th November 2010 - facebook email

If you don't change your beliefs, your life will be like this forever. Is that good news? Dr. Robert Anthony

The meetings are just amazing this week, everyone is so enthusiastic and it’s great to see everyone staying to the meeting to find out all about the new plan. It’s also brilliant to see people finally using the group wall, if you can’t access it from your phone use the group page which you usually can access from most phones http://www.facebook.com/reqs.php#!/pages/Bevs-Weight-Watchers/133361767350

A huge thank you to all my helpers, they’re doing the most amazing job and with a smile on their face, please be patient with my girls this week, its all new to them too and we’re extremely busy. Almost sold out of stock already so make sure you get yours asap.

Mmm smoothies, bought frozen berries yesterday and made a batch of smoothie, it’s great when your super busy like I am this week as it’s quick to make and quick to drink and very, very filling. You can make zero pointed ones but I do quite like the look of this one I’ve found on Weight Watchers esource;

Coffee and Banana Smoothie

ProPoints® Value: 4

Servings: 1

This Nescafe smoothie is sure to put a spring in your step - perfect to start your day.

1/2 medium Banana, ripe
150 g Yogurt, Greek, 0% Fat
200 ml Milk, Skimmed, cold (7fl.oz)
1/2 teaspoons Cinnamon, plus extra for dusting
2 teaspoons Coffee, Ground, Nescafe Half Caff & 6 ice-cubes

Place all the ingredients except the ice cubes into a blender. Process, adding the ice cubes one at a time until smooth and creamy. Pour into a tall glass, dust with cinnamon and serve.

That sounds extremely nice, I shall be trying it with decaf coffee though as I’m off caffeine and made the mistake of having a coffee at my meeting Monday night and was nearly bouncing off the walls! (yes more so than
usual ;-} )

Have you got a favourite recipe you think other members would love, if so email it to me and I’ll ProPoint it up and maybe add it to my next Bev’s Bite or email it out in my daily email. If its one from a Weight Watchers book, I may have it so just send me the book and recipe title and page number.

Yesterday afternoon I found myself with 30 minutes to spare before going back to a meeting so I had a quick look on Weight Watchers esource to see if there was a recipe using Celeriac and found the following soup, which not only is it zero points but it was delicious, took it to meeting for my helpers and they loved it.

Celeriac and Apple Soup

ProPoints® Value: 0, Servings: 4

1 medium Onion, All Types, chopped
2 cube(s) Stock Cube, Vegetable, (make 1 1/2 pints)
1 teaspoons Curry Powder, or paste (optional)
250 g Celeriac, about half a standard size, cut into 1 cm cubes
1 medium Apple, cooking, peeled, cored and cut into quarters
1 sprig(s) Parsley, fresh, chopped, to garnish (fresh)


Put the onion in a large pan, with enough stock or water to cover and the curry powder or paste, if used. Cover the pan and simmer for 5 minutes.

Add the celeriac and the remaining stock, cover and cook for a further 15 minutes.

Add the apple and cook for a further 5 minutes, until the apple has collapsed.

Either mash the soup with a potato masher or liquidise it in a food processor or liquidiser.

Serve sprinkled with parsley.

It was truly delicious, how great is this new plan xx

Remember life starts now?

Are you living yet?

You’re not alive unless you’re living!
