My Weekly Blog this week (Saturday 24th July 2017) is about what we can do when we seem to be feeling hungry all the time.

  • Try an apple first.  If this doesn’t appeal, you’re probably not really hungry.
  • Drink a glass of water and wait for 20 minutes.  The feeling of hunger could go away.
  • Make up some no added sugar squash and pour it into an ice-cube mould.  These ‘ice-cubes’ are great, especially on a hot day.
  • Get busy – gardening, cleaning, ironing, exercise DVD, sewing, knitting, adult colouring books, paint finger nails…
  • If you are able to, go for a walk.
  • No Counters, if you’re really in need of a chocolate fix, make up some popcorn and dip it into 2 tsp choc shot for just 1 point.

This fantastic snack has been sent in by @jim4545 – but we’re not sure where the original recipe came from.

Banana oat cookies: I took 45g porridge oats and 1 medium banana and mashed them together with a fork. I then finished bringing it together with my hands. Divided it into 4 and pressed each quarter into a round ring and added 4 chocolate drops per cookie. I then baked at 180 degrees for 15 minutes. 1sp per cookie on NC.

  1. Hi I’m going to try these Tomo on my first no count day and use choc shot in the mix, then make into balls might double up and use two ripe bananas.

    1. That sounds absolutely yummy Allie 😋💕 Enjoy your first NC day tomorrow – I really hope you enjoy it. 👍🏻💕 Helen xxx

  2. Helen I baked these this morning didn’t have any chocolate drops but I melted the new Ww marshmallows and dip and eat they are delicious. Thank you Kimberleyslimjim xx

    1. Morning Kimberley 🤗💕 Ooooooh I bet they tasted delish! 😋😋💕 Thank you for sharing that idea! 👌🏻💕 Wrap up warm and take care lovely lady, Helen xxxx

    1. Hi Maz, I’m really sorry but I’m not sure which chocolate drops were used. However, that’s why they are 1 point each – so you have 1 points worth of chocolate to put in each one. Helen xxx

  3. Peel a banana, wrap it in cling film & put it in the freezer. They are really creamy when you eat them and they last a lot longer than a normal banana to eat. Great for the summer as they’re just like ice cream with no preparation involved!
