Chilli & garlic King Prawns with Corgetti

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!

Extra Easy SP Overnight Oats

For this I used... 35g Porridge Oats (B Choice) Half a tub of Arla Protein (0.5 syn) 100g raspberries I used a glass Kilner Jar which I bought from The Range. I layered the oats, yogurt, and berries. In all I had around 6 layers from the ingredients. I only used half a tub of Arla Protein, as I find it very filling. A whole tub would be too much for me. You can also add raisins. Raisins are 2 syns for a 14g box. I've added half a box of raisins at 1 syn to my oats I've made for tomorrow. You can be as inventive as you like with your ingredients.

How to have a Slimming World BBQ

For Fathers Day tomorrow I am hosting a BBQ for my husband and father in law. The only person following plan will be me, so I have planned carefully to ensure there are enough options for me, while offering some non Slimming World options for other people. In theory no one should notice that I'm having a virtually syn free BBQ lunch. I picked up some of the new Slimming World BBQ range today at Iceland. They were fully stocked with the full range so i used my vouchers we received in group to get a pack of each item in the BBQ range. Here's my plan... Meat: Slimming World Beef Burger Slimming World Thai Chicken Burger Slimming World Mediterranean Chicken Sausages Salad: Lettuce, tomatoes, pickles (beetroot, picked onions, gherkins). Cooked diced white onions. Healthy extras: 4 x Laughing Cow Light Blue Cheese triangles 2 x Ryvita Dark Rye Syns: 50g Asda Smart Price Coleslaw (1 syn)
