The idea originates from a Weight Watchers book called time to eat. I have adapted it. This is an old book. In my experience, whatever plan you are using to help you lose weight, finding a cookbook that has recipes that you like and trying some of these is a really good idea. It is far easier to control what you put in a dish if you learn how to cook it and work out how to fit the recipe to your current plan. I am currently attending a Slimming World group and I know this is not free, however the blue cheese may well fit into a healthy extra A, although you will have to look this up to be sure. This is delicious though and I feel it justifies any points/syns/calories it contains. I doubt it is many!
