Ouch... reality suddenly hit me.. what am I doing, I am supposed to be eating sensibly... please help me everyone to get back on track? I feel like I've fallen off the rails!

  • One bad meal doesn't mean you have fallen off the rails. ☺

  • Thanks for the encouragement

  • There are worse things than Yorkshire puddings, they're just eggs and flour . . . Don't best yourself up 😊 Tomorrow's another day 😊

    Did you perfect a recipe? I always use powdered milk, it makes them lighter 😊

  • Ps welcome to the forum 😊

  • Thanks Anna

  • I was more worried about the amount of sunflower oil that each Yorkshire had!!!

  • Like the others have said becca, it was only a blip and today is a new day and a fresh start.

    Before eating anything, do make sure you know how many calories are going to enter your body and add them to your daily calorie total. I have found it quite sobering at times when doing that and have subsequently reduced the portion on my plate.

    I think you did well to just eat them straight. There was a time when I would have either plastered them with jam if cold or immersed them in butter and sugar if they were warm.

  • OK.. thanks for helping me.. I think that's a good Idea to write the calories down before I have eaten them.. then u can only have what you have written down.. must try it

  • YPs are not that bad I don't think and they're rather filling and so tasty! I brush my tins with the oil, and have also tried Frylight, which works just as well. Oh and I would have drizzled treacle on the practice ones, and scoffed the lot - in the past :o ...xx

  • Oh I wish I thought about treacle!! Sounds a lovely idea.. although I must stop eating badly now and think straight.. today is a new day!

  • I agree with everyone, it's not the end if the world - although Yorkies need oil of some description they don't actually absorb huge amounts of it - and it could, after all, have been a huge cheesecake you'd made for your guests...so look on the bright side and move on!

  • Thanks for being positive.. I need to start again today and think straight

  • IF you have any left, get them in the freezer QUICK!

  • Yep! That is what I did.. great minds think alike.

  • Easy to buy hem frozen tho, and use what you need
