Syn Free Beef & Broccoli Stir Fry

Syn Free Beef & Broccoli Stir Fry - Slimming World - Healthy - Easy Dinner - Recipe - Recipes

I think I probably do a stir fry about once a week, so I’m always trying to find new and interesting flavour combinations and sauces to create to keep things interesting! This particular stir fry was delicious! The thick, shiny sauce gave it a whole new dimension and it was packed with speed food which made it even more brilliant. You can view the whole recipe video, or use the written instructions below! Continue Reading…


Fakeaway Teriyaki Sauce with Chicken Meatballs

Low - Syn - Chicken - Teriyaki - Meatballs - Slimming - World - Recipe - Dinner - Fakeaway

Everyone loves a good takeaway, but some of us can’t get away with eating them very often. That’s why ‘fakeaways’ are the way forward! This particular fakeaway is a new favourite of mine, because Teriyaki sauce is AMAZING! Making a practically syn free version of what is usually quite an unhealthy sauce (1.5 syns per portion when split between two), is a great thing to be able to do as it gives you the choice and control in a potentially damaging situation. When you really fancy a takeaway is when you’re at your most vulnerable, so having a few recipes up your sleeve for recipes that will curb those cravings is a God send!  Continue Reading…


Syn Free Tagliatelle with Steak & Mushroom Sauce

Syn - Free - Slimming - World - Tagliatelle - Pasta - Creamy - Sauce - Steak - Mushroom - Dinner - Easy

I’m a big fan of quick, syn free, tasty pasta dishes! They’re comforting, filling and healthy, and this one is no different. With a smooth and silky sauce, big chunks of lean rump steak, and melt in the mouth mushrooms, it’s one of those dinners you can have again and again and not get bored! Much like my Syn Free Carbonara and Syn Free Cajun Chicken Pasta, this dish uses the age old trick of egg and yogurt to make a thick glossy sauce. The beautiful thing about this method of making a sauce is that it doesn’t use any Healthy Extras and it’s still 100% syn free! This leaves you free to use your HexA choice on something else throughout the day, and helps keep your daily meal plan even more interesting!  Continue Reading…

Much like my very popular Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta, and my Syn Free Carbonara, this is a pasta dish that has become a firm favourite on my menu at home. With all of the creamy elements of a high syn dish, created by using a mix of egg, yogurt and cheese, you can indulge in some of the best comfort food around without going off plan!  Continue Reading…


Syn Free Lasagna Cups

Slimming World Syn Free Lasagna Cups - Mince - Lasagna - Syn Free - HexA - Healthy Extra A - Easy - Dinner - Lunch

These are my new favourite way to eat lasagna, without a doubt! Quicker (you don’t have to wait for a whole big dish to cook through), just as delicious, fun to eat and obviously syn free too! There’s also something really special about the different textures that you get from this dish – there’s the soft pasta around the bottom, the mince and the cheese which are gooey and delicious, and then the crispy lasagna sheets around the top which add a crunch to the whole dish! Perfect with a side of veg, great for midweek dinners, and easy to bake ahead of time and then take to lunch/reheat, these are seriously versatile! Continue Reading…


Seriously Simple Syn Free Gravy

Seriously Simple Syn Free Gravy - Slimming World Gravy - Slimming World - Syn Free - Easy Recipe - Simple Slimming World

There are some meals that you just can’t have without gravy, but homemade gravy recipes are often full of flour to thicken them, and oil to give them flavour, not this one though! My new gravy recipe is a thick, delicious, healthy alternative and is perfect for all of us Slimming World-ers looking for a saucy fix on our roasts, mash or toad in the hole! The great thing about this recipe is that it can be made to go with beef, chicken or even as a vegetarian option, it’s just down to the kind of stock you use, and it’s completely gluten free too as well as being syn free and utterly delicious!

Syn Free One Pot Cajun Chicken Pasta

Creamy One Pot Cajun Chicken Pasta - Syn Free - Slimming World - Recipe - Healthy - Low Fat - Cajun Spice - One Pot Pasta

I adore a good ‘one pot’ pasta recipe…because I absolutely hate doing the washing up! I know that washing dishes is a necessary part of doing a lot of cooking (which I do!) but that really doesn’t stop me hating it. So, any recipe which means I essentially just have a chopping board and a sauce pan to wash up is a massive winner in my books! Add into the mix that this Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta is absolutely to die for, and I was a happy bunny when I got to tuck into it!  Continue Reading…


Low Syn Bearnaise Sauce

I fell in love with Bearnaise sauce in a gorgeous French brasserie in Paris whilst on holiday with my mum and sister, but given that your standard Bearnaise recipe contains about a ton of butter it’s not the most Slimming World friendly thing on the planet. 

After a year of going without (except one rather naughty evening out where steak and chips just didn’t feel right on its own!) I decided that there must be a way to make the same delicious, rich and creamy sauce without a shed load of butter. Turns out, I was right. It’s seems that it’s not actually the butter that gives the sauce it’s delicious flavour, although I’ve not completely butchered the recipe and have included some tasty Flora Light (lower in syns but still has a great buttery taste), just in a much smaller quantity than you would use butter in a regular recipe. With a few additional tweaks, this turned out better than I could have hoped and was seriously so easy to make! Continue Reading…


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…
