Right... earlier today SW posted on Facebook asking people for tips for holidays!
Most of the 'tips' were along the lines of 'enjoy yourself' and 'forget the diet', which is fine for some people, but there were not enough genuine supportive tips for my liking!
For this recipe you need; 1 large corgette (or pre packed corgetti) Pesto of your choice King Prawns Garlic Chilli Parmesan Spray a pan with your preferred choice of spray oil. Spiralize your corgette into the pan and add plenty of chilli and garlic (I use frozen chopped for ease). Put on a medium heat. Mean while place your king prawns in a smaller pan with chilli and garlic to your taste. Turn to the lowest heat. Allow the prawns to slowly turn pink, then turn over once. Keeping the heat low to stop the garlic burning. Be sure to not let them overcook. Once your corgetti is cooked (you can cook it as little or as much as you like depending on if you want a crunch or soft corgetti - 5 mins is enough for me). Add in 10g / 1.5 syns of Salca Chilli Pesto. Stir through. Serve the corgetti with the prawns on top and sprinkle with a tbsp of parmesan from your A choice. Enjoy!Read more

I removed the skin, but I still counted the 3 syns it says on the Slimming World app. I'd say having researched the menu and syns that Butterfly Chicken is the best option to go for. I chose a salad and corn on the cob as my 2 sides. Counting the corn as syn free because I didn't put the butter on. The butter comes separate and sealed so you can make that choice, which is great. My friend chose the same as me, but she had the regular rice which is 2.5 syns. A good tip that was offered to me is to take your Healthy Extra B pitta with you and add it to your meal to save on syns. I'm sure no one would notice if you were discreet enough and if you were spotted then you could...Read more
I've been having Grape Nuts for my breakfast for the last 2 days. I've been looking to alternate my B choices since hitting target, so I'm pleased to have found these. They can be found in the cereal aisle of your supermarket. A B choice of Grape Nuts is 35g. I serve mine with Arla Protein and Speed fruit such as Raspberries or Strawberries.Read more
