Slimming World Friendly Foods I Love Having At Home

Slimming World Friendly Foods I Love Having At Home

I have been off and on doing Slimming World for a few years now and even though I don’t always feel motivated, I do try to be as good as I can at home as I feel like this is the easiest place to be better with my food.

I’m always on the look out for new foods and things which are low syn and the Heck range is one of my absolute favourites as most of the food in the range is pretty low syn, especially some of their sausages. I’ve tried a whole load of different sausages from them including the simply chicken*, naked chicken*, naked pork* and the majestic* sausages. The naked ones are just skinless which means they are even leaner and even lower in fat and syn value.

The Naked Pork sausages taste like traditional sausages and unlike a lot of other low syn sausages they don’t go dry once you’ve cooked them which is great, but the chicken one’s are a great alternative especially when you cut them up and use them in things like casseroles or wraps and sandwiches.

The majestic one’s are a little bit special and these were released for the Royal Wedding mixing American Mustard and Sweet Ginger (get what they did there?!) but I’m sure they’ll be around for a while, if not there’s still a version in the normal collection which has pork and marmalade.

Heck don’t just do sausages though and I was seriously impressed with these Chicken Italia burgers* which has basil, tomato and mozzarella in them, although the later wasn’t that prominent as my cheese hating boyfriend didn’t even notice. These burgers kept their shape perfectly when cooking which was great and again like the sausages they didn’t go dry when cooked and the taste was so nice considering they’re such low syn. Personally I find the key to a good sausage or burger is the seasoning which Heck nails.

Syn Values: Simply Chicken Sausages 0.5 syns for 2 sausages/ Naked Chicken Sausages 0.5 syns for 2 sausages each/ The Majestic Sausages 3.5 syns each/  Naked Pork Sausages 4 syns each

I am a huge popcorn fan and find on Slimming World you can use a lot less syns having a bag of popcorn compared to crisps so this is what I tend to favour when I want to reach for a savoury snack. The Metcalfe Skinny Popcorn in Sweet and Salty tends to be what I reach for as the bags are pretty generous in size and are only a few syns. I love the mixed sweet and salty as I find if I have just one or another then it can get a bit boring but mixing it up is perfect. Despite being low syn you still get a lot of flavour in the popcorn.

Syn Values: Skinny Sweet & Salty 3(17g bag) .5 syns/ Skinny Sea Salt (20g bag) 4 syns / Skinny Cinema Sweet (25g) 5.5 syns

Noodles - All

Mr Lee’s Noodles* are something pretty new to me but have been so convenient to take to work for lunch as they just need boiling water to them before you eat. You need to shake the packets quite a bit before adding the water to ensure the flavour mixes into the product enough but there’s enough flavouring in them that that no one could complain they’re bland. I even made the rookie mistake of using the cool water tap at work the first time I had one so I had to pour the water out meaning I lost a lot of flavour particles and it still tasted really good.

I’ve had quite a few different flavours to try and my personal favourites are Hong Kong Street Beef which had tasty cubes of beef and the Zen Garden Vegetables which was a great non-meat alternative.

Syn Values: Coconut Chicken Laksa 3.5 syns/ Dragon Fire Vegetables 2 syns/ Tai Chi Chicken 2.5 syns/ Warrior Fighting Shrimp 3 syns/ Zen Garden Vegetables 1.5 syns/ Hong Kong Street Beef 3.5 syns

Frozen Yoghurt Lollies

As it’s that bit warmer I’m always on the look out for cool treats and these Claudi & Fin frozen yoghurt lollies* are just 1.5 syns each and made with 100% natural ingredients. The company was founded when the owners were looking for lollies for their kids and realised how much sugar was in all the supermarket options so they wanted to create their own. The 9 mini pack which I have comes with three of each flavour including mango, strawberry and apricot & peach and they’re so creamy as they’re made from Greek style yoghurt, whole milk and real fruit. My favourite is the mango flavoured lolly as it’s both sharp but fresh and creamy.

They’re quite small in size but they’re perfect for a warm afternoon snack at just 32 calories each but you can get slightly larger lollies in the Mango and Strawberry flavours which are 3 and 2.5 syns which is still really good for a larger lolly. It isn’t just me who loves them as Slimming World have features them in the latest magazine.

Syn Values: Mini lollies 1.5 syns

    I really need to get something like this. I have so struggled to move my baby weight after 4 years. It’s painfully slow to come off but the problem is I snack when I shouldn’t!

    The claude and Fin yoghurt lollies are so heavenly. I love them after a heavy gym session to help me cool down!

    Ooh great! I love that there are convenient options to follow the slimming world plan! I love that popcorn too, it’s so good!

    I did Slimming World before and did lose weight but didn’t stick to it. I could really do with losing a few pounds so must get back to it.

    I think that’s all worth a try especially if you’re trying to eat more healthy. It’s good to make sure you have food at home that adheres to your lifestyle or your diet.

    I have been losing weight recently but want to do more, so plan to sign up to slimming world next week – post couldn’t have been more well timed 🙂

    I have heard some really great things about the whole Heck range. I think I should definitely give some of it a go.

    I think popcorn is great when you are trying to lose weight as it’s such a satisfying snack. The frozen yoghurt lollies sound lovely.

  12. June 15, 2018 / 12:18 pm

    Oh yum, these are all so yummy especially Hecks sausages which we all love totally! I can’t believe how these taste amazing and you can still lose weight eating them

    I love that popcorn and the ice lollies too! I am glad to hear they are slimming world friendly too

    Part of the problem for diets for me is having things which are convenient as I really struggle with time, young family full on career blog etc! So the fact that these are all things which fulfil that but are low on sins are great. Book marking ! x

    Other than Metcalfe’s popcorn I haven’t heard of any of these brands before. They look fab, though, and as I’m doing Slimming World myself at the moment I’ll have to see if I can find some to try myself 🙂

    I’ve tried some of the Heck products before and found them to be really tasty. I will have to try out the rest of the range too.
