Unless you’ve been living under a rock in recent weeks, you’ll have seen that KFC have launched the Double Down Burger into the UK. Inevitably, as it’s only in stores for a limited time only, everyone seemed to go crazy for it and if I’m totally honest I went out and bought one…purely for research purposes…honestly 😉 Anyway, having tried it for myself and confirmed that yes, bacon and BBQ sauce sandwiched between two fried pieces of chicken is as good as it sounds, I decided to help myself avoid any future trips down fast food alley and create this Slimming World KFC Double Down Burger as a healthy and delicious alternative for any slimmers out there!  Continue Reading…

For Anyone That Feels Like Quitting…

Please don’t! Here’s why, how, and what to do if you have…

We all have them don’t we? Those days where it all seems too much and we just want to say f**k it and throw in the proverbial towel. If you don’t you’re a very lucky (and slightly odd) person, and I seriously envy you! I’m talking about those days where losing weight just feels like a never ending journey requiring far too much effort for far too little reward. Given that losing weight has unquantifiable benefits, from a physical and mental health point of view, that might seem stupid, but sometimes it’s just hard for those huge benefits to out-way quite how exhausting losing weight can be.

Crispy Fried Chicken with Sticky Five Spice Sauce

Crispy Fried Chicken with Sticky Five Spice Sauce

The perfect quick dinner, whipped up in under 30 minutes, this fried chicken and sticky five spice sauce will beat the Chinese any day, and at just 1 syn per portion you’re in for a treat! 

It’s been ages since I’ve had a proper piece of fried chicken, after all heading down the chippy is hardly a Slimming World friendly move (at least not when you can’t resist cheesy chips anyway!), and whilst I adore the Slimming World KFC and eat it most weeks, you really can’t beat that crispy flour coating once in a while. I was thinking about this, and craving some fried chicken the other day, when I realised I could meet myself in the middle, not just as a treat but as an every day dish for just 1 syn per portion! You don’t have to go the full nine yards with deep fried batter, but you can definitely still enjoy the same flavours and experience with a pan fried piece of chicken dipped in flour! So, that’s what I decided to do, and boy was it amazing! In fact, because it’s just a light coating you end up with a much crispier finish, without oil dripping all over the place! Continue Reading…
