Hello everyone
I am new to the forum and just wondered if anyone on here follows the Slimming World eating plan?
I have been a member of Slimming World since April 2009, I joined as I wanted to lose weight for my wedding which was April 2010.
I managed to get to target too :)
But now its just nice to swap and share recipes and inspiration etc.

So feel free to post any recipes or ideas here that we can share.
Love Stacey x

well done for getting to your target.

I did slimming world yonks ago, but now i do weight watchers. When i was on slimming world all i ate was smash and tins of w/w bolognese shells....i got far too addicted to it! lol

I say i do w/w, i dont go to classes as i cant afford them (see other post lol) but i do follow the diet, and i have lost 8 and half pound in 3 weeks which i am dead happy with.

I have also stopped going to class too hun. I just dont feel the need to spend time there now I'm at target plus ive managed to keep the weight off too. Usually when people stop going they gain it all back but I just bought myself a good set of scales and weigh in on friday mornings at home :)

8.5lbs is a fantastic loss though, keep up the good work.
Maybe we could be piggie and slimming buddies lol.
its always nice to have a buddy to keep you on your toes as losing weight is not easy.

Hot chilli powder ( a teaspoon to give it a fiery taste)

This lasagne can also be made without the red pepper, herbs and spices if you prefer it to not be spicy. It is great also mixed with laughing cow cheese if you want a creamy baked bean lasagne.

Blend the onion and a few garlic cloves. Fry it in a pan with fry light and then add the mince. let it cook for about 20 mins. Drain off the fat. Then add as much soya sauce as you want and salt and pepper. I used half a bottle lol.

Cook the rice as directed, while that is cooking beat 2 eggs in a bowl, then spray a pan with fry light, add the eggs and break it up as it cooks. Once rice is cooked, add the egg and peas and fry for a few mins.

Garlic Breaded Mushrooms!
Great as a starter or a simple but yummy snack!

Ingredients:
2 slices of wholemeal bread from a 400g loaf
Garlic powder
Fry light
200g mushrooms, left whole and wiped clean
2 eggs, beaten

Method:
Make breadcrumbs from the bread using a food processor or hand blender.

Once blended into crumbs, add approximately 2 tablespoon of garlic powder to the breadcrumbs

Spray a non stick baking tray with fry light, dip the mushrooms into the egg and then into the breadcrumbs, ensuring they are fully coated and place them onto the baking tray

Bake in a hot oven (gas mark 8) for around 20 minutes or until crisp and golden & serve with a tasty dip
(I had some garlic mayo for 3.5 syns for a spoon)

Syn Free Pancake!
So yummy & really tastes like your having something naughty to eat.

2 EGGS
SWEETENER
VANILLA ESSENCE
TOPPINGS OF YOUR CHOICE (I CHOOSE BANANA, STRAWBERRIES & 1 TEASPOON OF HONEY FOR 1 SYN)

Separate the eggs into two bowls - white and yolk.

Whisk the white and add 3 tsp sweetner (or to taste), whisking til white and meringue-ish
Add some vanilla essence to the yolk.

Add the yolk to the white and fold together - this is your batter.

frylight a pan and add all of the batter, spreading it gently with the back of a spoon.

leave pancakes alone until you can slide a fishslice underneath and flip over, then when other side is cooked turn pancakes from pan onto plate.

Top with your favourite toppings and serve!
Makes a great dessert or snack!
