Mini Egg mousse pots | Recipe (Slimming World friendly)

Mini egg mousse pots, Slimming World friendly

Easter can be a hard time for Slimming World members, especially if you’re partial to a bit lot of chocolate. Plus all of the delicious desserts including Creme Eggs and the such that come with it. Luckily for me I’m more of a savoury person, but I do enjoy the odd treat every now and then.

As we all know, Slimming World members needn’t miss out if you want to stay totally on plan over Easter; there are many recipes that can be adapted. One of my favourite Easter treats are Mini Eggs – not so good when I could sit and eat a whole sharing pack though! These Mini Egg mousse pots consisting of mostly syn free ingredients should hit the spot for that Easter dessert, and they only take ten minutes to prepare! Read more

January Degustabox | Subscription Box Review

January Degustabox review

For a lot of people, January is the start of a new year health kick. This seemed to be the theme of the January Degustabox – aptly named “New Year, New Me” for the first few products. I will say, there were a few new brands to me in this box and I do try everything, but there were some I wasn’t so keen on. That’s not to say someone else wouldn’t be, of course.

  • Enjoy 10 to 15 surprise products, many are completely new to the market!
  • Receive your Degustabox every month filled with goodies.
  • All for much less than you would pay in the shops!

Chicken & broccoli pasta bake | Recipe (Slimming World friendly)

A pasta bake is a great staple meal for Slimming World members, and I’ve previously shared a few on the blog. This one doesn’t create a lot of washing up as there is no pre-cooking on the hob, of anything other than the pasta. It’s basically a “throw it all in, and sit back and wait” type of dish! I’ve used dried breadcrumbs to top this one instead of cheese; they just add an extra bit of crunch. Though you could top with cheese too if you like, using your healthy extra or synning it.  Read more

The Health Benefits of Red Meat

For plenty of years, people have accused red meat of being bad for your health for not one but a plethora of reasons. Many of those who were once meat lovers and proud carnivores have even bought into the statements that highlight the negative traits of red meat and as a result, they converted to veganism and resorted to a diet that consisted of vegetables, fruits and anything but red meat.

The question that still stands is: is red meat really bad for you as many have portrayed it to be? Is it really something that should be cut out of your diet at all costs for the sake of your own health and wellbeing? This guide will put all such questions to rest. Read more
