Easy Peasy Chicken Caprese Salad

This recipe for Chicken Caprese Salad is a new favourite of mine because it is seriously packed full of flavour and I can’t stand a bland salad. The basil, garlic, lemon and oil (or apple cider vinegar if you’re making the syn free version) all come together to really bring out the flavours in the fresh tomatoes and compliment the chicken perfectly. The whole recipe is then offset by the creamy mozzarella and pulled together by the salad leaves, making it all in all a total success.  Continue Reading…


Best Ever Low Syn Chicken Curry

Low Syn Chicken Curry - Slimming World - Healthy - Curry Recipe

When I was growing up, takeaway curries were a big family favourite. We’d order about a tonne of food and all dig in and share together. However, as I got older I found that takeaway curries really started to feel heavy and almost exhausting to eat. I still enjoyed one on occasion, but they most definitely became a treat as opposed to something I could enjoy all the time. I really started to miss them, particularly when I started on Slimming World until I realised that I could make incredibly delicious homemade curries without any of the guilt! This recipe for Low Syn Chicken Curry is a follow up to some of my previous curry recipes, and I can honestly say that it surpassed anything I’ve made in the past! Continue Reading…

Easy Peasy Syn Free Fish and Chips

Healthy Fish and Chips - Syn Free - Slimming World - low carb - gluten free

Fish and Chips is a British staple and it’s the perfect comfort food year-round.
