Easy Peasy Low Carb Chilli Chicken

Easy Peasy - Low Carb - Chilli Chicken - Recipe - Slimming World - Syn Free - Keto - Ketogenic - High Protein - Healthy - Weight Loss

I love Mexican food and chilli is one of my favourite dishes, but forever I’ve only ever made it using beef. It’s the traditional way and it’s definitely one of those ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ kind of meals! However, that was before I discovered that Chilli Chicken was a thing and I simply had to try it. That’s when I came up with this Easy Peasy Low Carb Chilli Chicken recipe, which combines all of the delicious flavours of traditional chilli with lean chicken instead of beef. It’s packed with veggies, super low carb and high protein and literally bursting with flavour. You can eat it on its own, or enjoy it with some tasty Cauliflower Rice to keep things low carb!  Continue Reading…


Healthy Gluten Free Blueberry and Oat Muffins

Healthy - Gluten Free - Blueberry and Oat Muffins - Slimming World - Sugar Free - Refined Sugar Free - Low Syn - Diet - Weight Loss

I’m always on the lookout for new and exciting breakfast recipes to help me on my way to a healthier me! From overnight oats to No Bake Breakfast Bars, I’ve found that oats are the key to a filling and delicious breakfast, and these Healthy Gluten Free Blueberry and Oat Muffins are another shining example! They’re super filling, gluten free (obviously), free from refined sugar AND they’re tasty to boot! Although they’re not quite vegan (thanks to the egg) they are of course suitable for vegetarians and if you are vegan then they could be made using an egg substitute instead so long as you use a vegan yogurt. To top it all off they’re also totally Slimming World friendly!  Continue Reading…

There are many reasons why I like cold weather, and although the fact that I can wear tights again (bye bye thigh chafing!) and that I can comfortably wear black all of the time are up there, my number one thing about winter is soup!

No Waste One Pan Gammon & Bean Bake

No Waste - One Pan Gammon & Bean Bake - Iceland Foods - Slimming World - Syn Free - Healthy - Money Saving Recipe

 

Did you know that UK households waste a massive 7 MILLION TONNES of food every single year? That works out, according to the government agency WRAP, at a loss of £700 per family on average. Just think of what we could all do with that extra £700 each if we simply made an effort to reduce our food waste? Personally it’d go towards a deposit on a house, but you could go on holiday, get a dog, or just put it away for a rainy day. Whatever you’d do with the money, the fact remains that it is ridiculous that we waste so much, something with Iceland believe too, which is why they’ve asked me to come up with a recipe using their food which not only tastes amazing but shows exactly how far one meal can go and how easy it is to reduce waste and save money when cooking! This blog post for my No Waste one Pan Gammon &  Bean Bake doesn’t only give you one recipe, but if you scroll further down gives you TWO MORE recipes for how to use your leftovers and reduce your household waste.  Continue Reading…
