Chilli & Paprika Carrot Chips

Slimming World Carrot Chips

I’ve been enjoying a few SP days recently, trying to speed up my weight loss and compensate for a fair few off plan days (sorry Slimming World!).

Unfortunately on an SP day I obviously can’t indulge in my go to favourite Slimming World side dish, homemade oven chips. Even sweet potato chips are off the cards, so it was time to look for something a bit different. Now, I’m not the greatest lover of carrots by any means, but psychologically I needed a chip replacement and so I thought that I’d give them a go. 

I’m super glad that I did though, because they were delicious! I’ll definitely be making them again, and using them when I want to have an SP day in the future, because they just make it that bit easier! 

Serves 2

        28/03/2017 at 8:17 am Just searching for ideas on SP days and really like your simple and easy suggestions. I'm going to try the carrot chips and use butternut squash at the same time to see if that works too. Thanks
