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.

Recipe: Low Syn Coronation Chicken

One of my all time sandwich filler and jacket potato filling is Coronation Chicken.  The mild curry taste just has its own place on a sandwich or as a jacket potato filler.

Being a Slimming World member, I would have to syn any pre-made Coronation Chicken fillings.  This can range from 2 syns per tablespoon to 27 syns for a pot.  When you only have so many syns to use per day you start to look to create low-syn alternatives.

I thought about Coronation Chicken and it’s basically curried powder and yogurt right?  That’s all it seems to me, so I set off to experiment.  In the end, I add Curry Powder, Cinnamon, and Turmeric to yogurt and lighter than light mayonnaise to create the mixture.

Light, tasty and low syn – win win win!
