Love Food February: The Love For Chinese

So today we’ll talk about that Chinese Takeaway. A little while ago, wifey really wanted to make a Chinese Fakeaway buffet. We had planned the Saturday night originally, but that went out the window when the little one had a funny turn. Sitting in the hospital to see a doc to get discharged with no issue was done instead.

So on the Monday she went all out and made the best Chinese Fakeaway I’ve had. Best of all it was all on plan with Slimming World.

Now depending on your tastes, there are different dishes which everyone loves. If we ever have a takeaway or eat at a Chinese restaurant, we always have a mix of different things and share between us – just what we do. I know some people (like my lil’ brother) will just order they like and have that.

Recipe: Nando’s Style Chicken

Plenty of people have heard of Nando’s, that chicken restaurant that sells, well, chicken. Chicken can come plain, it can come a little spicey, a medium spicy and very spicy. However, you like your chicken chances are you’ll find it served like that at Nando’s.

Being on Slimming World, Nando’s is a great place to go for something to eat and keep to plan. If you have chicken with a side salad and corn on the cob it’s free of syns (as long as you remove the skin from the chicken). There aren’t many places you can eat out for so little syns.

Recipe: Fakeaway Onion Bhajis

Someone asked me not long ago how I made Onion Bhaji’s previously, so I thought I’d share as these little treats are completely syn free on Slimming World and they can be used to supplement a curry (or other meal) as well as a little snack.

I first made these when making my first ever curry from scratch. I was feeling adventurous in the kitchen at the time, but I’ve not made these anywhere near enough – think I might have to again this weekend.

Recipe: 1 Syn Sausage, Egg & Cheese Bagel

Who likes a McDonalds Breakfast Bagel?  In particular the Sausage, Egg and Cheese Bagel?  You may not like McDonalds at all, never been to one in fact, but you may still like the sound of a Sausage, Egg and Cheese Bagel to set you off in the morning.

Mmmm… Bagel and Coffee

If a Bagel is your sort of thing, this savory breakfast (or lunch) treat could be well up your street.  Only this version is a lot healthier than the McDonalds one and is only 1 syn on Slimming World (when using both your HEa and HEb choices).  Even if you’re vegetarian you can enjoy this, as we used the Quorn Sausage Patties to make this wonderful delight.

Recipe: Mega BLT

I love a good sandwich and you can’t get a sandwich must better than a BLT (Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato).  A BLT sandwich is typically better in the summer when Tomatoes are at their best, but there is something about the saltiness of the Bacon mixed with the crisp, cool texture of the Lettuce and Tomato.

Recipe: Ham and Egg Cups

Often across Slimming World Groups people say they struggle with Breakfast ideas.  Breakfast is often seen as one of the more difficult meals of the day.  People are often limited in thinking breakfast is either Cereal, Toast or a good old English Breakfast, but it doesn’t have to be.

People these days often get to work before having breakfast.  I often do, largely because if I eat at 6am then I’m going to be snacking around 9am.  I usually don’t have breakfast until 9am/10am when at work.  It fits with my morning break and I can then go to Lunch without cravings of rubbish food which I then want to snack on.

These little cups (as I call them) are filling as can be eaten cold (after cooking) or warm.
