Everyone knows that I love a Fakeaway! If it tastes unhealthy but won’t affect my waistline (or better yet helps me to lose weight) you’ll find me cooking it. This week I wanted to cook up something with an Asian influence, so I’ve put together this recipe for Healthy Teriyaki Beef which couldn’t be any more simple. This recipe for Healthy Teriyaki Beef is not only simple but it’s also low syn on Slimming World, as well as being super balanced nutritionally.
Healthy Teriyaki Beef on Slimming World
This recipe is the ultimate healthy Fakeaway! It’s full of flavour, with garlic, ginger, sesame, soy, spring onion and honey all working perfectly together to give you the classic Teriyaki flavour without making it super high in syns. The syns that are in the recipe come from the honey and the sesame seeds, but even with these this delicious Fakeaway Healthy Teriyaki Beef works out at just 1 syn per portion! This absolutely won’t break the syn bank and is significantly less than if you were to order a Teriyaki Beef dish from the Chinese!
Moreover, if you are enjoying this Healthy Teriyaki Beef recipe on an Easy Extra SP day, you can make some tasty Teriyaki Beef Cups with gem lettuce instead of eating it with rice! This is exactly what I did when making this recipe for myself at home while making the rice for my boyfriend who doesn’t need to cut down on the carbs quite as much as I do. Even with the salad, instead of the rice, this was a super filling meal, particularly with my side of Chilli & Garlic Greens which were fried in low-calorie cooking spray and so stayed syn free!
Whilst I’m a massive believer in the general principles of Slimming World, I’ve also become more aware recently of my more specific macro-nutrient breakdown on a daily basis. I’m trying my best to stick to Slimming World whilst keeping an eye on how many carbs I’m eating day to day (particularly good on SP) and making sure that I’m eating plenty of protein. I have therefore started including information on the more general nutritional breakdown of my recipes. If you are following Slimming World, please remember that you DO NOT need to worry about these if you don’t want to! Having this information can help you build this recipe into your meal plans if you’re following the Keto diet, or counting your Macros for any other specific diet plan.
