A huge thank you to everyone who has helped me celebrate my special birthday. It has been amazing and I have enjoyed every minute.

Now we are in Platinum Jubilee week – are you ready for the Jubilee celebrations?

 On behalf of Slimtone, I’d like to send congratulations to Her Majesty The Queen on this remarkable achievement as the first British monarch to celebrate 70 years of service.

 I’m sure that many of us will be joining in or even hosting celebrations over the coming few days. Remember, you can still enjoy yourself…Slimtone style!

 In class this week we’re going to be talking about Jubilee celebrations, parties and afternoon tea. There are lots of ideas too in the Slimtone Lifestyle Plan. Why not try some of the sandwiches on page 21….here’s a reminder of the Coronation Chicken filling.

Chop 56g/2oz cooked chicken into bite-sized pieces. Mix together 1 tablespoon extra light mayo, 1 teaspoon curry powder, 1 tablespoon raisins and 1 teaspoon mango chutney. Add in the chicken and mix thoroughly. This is ideal cut into finger sandwiches or served as a filling on mini jacket potatoes, a great alternative at any party!

 The Platinum Pudding is a completely over-the-top indulgence, so why not opt for a Slimtone style look-alike  with the Lemon & Lime Cheesecake on page 60. Or add a citrus flavour to the low fat Slimtone scones by serving them with lemon curd – the recipe is on page 63 of your Lifestyle Plan.

 Whatever you choose to serve, I’d love to see photos of your Slimtone-style Platinum Jubilee celebrations – post them on our Facebook page.

Have a wonderful few days,
