Nando’s Slimming World Syns List

Nandos Slimming World Syns

Going out to eat when you’re trying to be healthy can be tough, but with a little bit of planning and a touch of self-control, it doesn’t have to be a disaster for your diet. If you’re on Slimming World and looking to go out to eat, one of the best things you can look for is places that do grilled meats or fish, because grilling typically uses less oil and you often ask for healthier side dishes like steamed veg or potatoes. This is one of the reasons that Nando’s is actually a great choice if you’re following the Slimming World plan because it has a surprising number of low syn choices on the menu as you can see below on this Nando’s Slimming World Syns ListContinue Reading…

Low Syn Caramel Apple Upside Down Cake - Slimming World - baking - recipe - cake - pudding

I recently found myself becoming totally nostalgic for some of my childhood puddings, the ones that my grandma cooked better than anyone else!

It got me thinking whether there was any way I could make a similar kind of cake as a Slimming World friendly option. That was the start of this Low Syn Caramel Apple Upside Down Cake which, although you might not believe it when you see it, is totally Slimming World friendly!  Continue Reading…


NEW SLIMMING WORLD SYN UPDATES (November 2018)

Slimming World Syn Updates

Following recent updates to the Slimming World plan, including the news that slimmers now need to syn their flavoured yoghurts and instant mash, it was thought that Slimming World HQ might let us rest for a while with the plan as it is. However, it seems that they were simply softening the blow and waiting until now to release further updates to the plan! Whilst these are not as dramatic as the previous ones, and probably won’t cause quite so much public outrage, it’s important to factor them into your daily life. That’s why I’ve mapped out all of the new Slimming World syn updates below…  Continue Reading…
