Chunky Winter Vegetable & Rice Soup

Chunky Winter Vegetable & Rice Soup - slimming world - simplissimo chef - winter - soup - slimming world - syn free

It’s officially winter which means it’s time for warm nights in with loved ones, Christmas planning and enjoying plenty of hearty, healthy food. This Chunky Winter Vegetable & Rice Soup is thick, packed with nutritious veg and it’s mega filling, almost a cross between a vegetable stew and soup – perfect for keeping you healthy throughout the winter season. I’ve been laid up with a cold for the past week (not ideal when you’re seven months pregnant!) so I’ve been looking for ways to pack as much nutrition into my diet as possible, which is where this soup has come from. It’s a fantastic source of protein, vitamins and healthy carbs, plus the kick from the chilli really helps to clear your head if you are suffering from a cold!

Low Syn Caramel Apple Upside Down Cake

Low Syn Caramel Apple Upside Down Cake - Slimming World - baking - recipe - cake - pudding

I recently found myself becoming totally nostalgic for some of my childhood puddings, the ones that my grandma cooked better than anyone else! I was meandering down this happy train of thought when I remembered the pineapple upside down cake she used to make so well, which despite not liking pineapple one bit I used to wolf down in no time at all! It got me thinking whether there was any way I could make a similar kind of cake as a Slimming World friendly option. That was the start of this Low Syn Caramel Apple Upside Down Cake which, although you might not believe it when you see it, is totally Slimming World friendly!  Continue Reading…

Best Ever Low Syn Banana Bread

Best Ever - Low Syn Banana Bread - Slimming World - Recipe - Cake

Growing up I was never much of a fan of cake, I even used to opt for a Baked Alaska instead of birthday cake every year, but there was always one kind of cake that I totally adored… banana bread!

However, when you’re trying to be healthy and stick to the Slimming World plan, banana bread can seem like a million miles away! That’s why I’ve come up with this Best Ever Low Syn Banana Bread recipe, to keep syns low whilst keeping hold of everything that I love most about banana bread. 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! Specifically homemade soup, because there are very few things that warm you up on a cold, raining day in the UK more than a hearty bowl of home cooked soup. This Roasted Carrot and Coriander Soup is the perfect autumn/winter recipe, which is packed full of flavour and takes just 3o minutes to make!  Continue Reading…
