Loaded Leek & Potato Bake (Syn Free on Slimming World)

This syn free dish is the answer to all of your winter food prayers, especially if you’re on Slimming World! With seasonal flavours it’s super warming, not to mention loaded with cheese and bacon…what more could you want?

Low Syn Cream of Chicken Soup (Slimming World)

I’m getting really in to soup at the moment, it’s great for winter and you can make so many delicious low syn varieties for Slimming World! It’s also great for meal prepping as you’re assured to have days worth of healthy lunches in the freezer to take to work! My other half is also getting very into soup, after all it gets cold on building sites at this time of year and it’s always nice to have a warm lunch to take away that chill, proving that soup isn’t just great for slimmers! One of his favourite soups is that Cream of Chicken Soup that Heinz make, but a can of that will set you back 10 syns and and I really try not to have high syn food in the house, and I’m always looking out for his health too, so it was down to me to work out how to make a suitable, low syn equivalent…and that’s how I came up with this!  (more…)
