Now you will note that there are no pizzas below.  For me, you just can not slimming world a pizza.  I say NO to cauliflower crusts and all that.  I believe that homemade pizza is amazing and I know it tastes great, in fact, we have been making our own pizzas since the boys were in my tummy and we had them for Christmas eve cooked on our outdoor pizza oven.  So if you are eating healthily then I believe that you can have anything in moderation and would rather have less and have a great pizza. If you really can not stop yourself eating all the pizza then try making our mini pizza bites and freeze some.

KFC Chicken Fakeaway

My boys’ LOVE KFC and it is pretty family friendly budget wise but we don;lt have one anywhere near us and I love this fab recipe for KFC Chicken Fakeaway by Whit Whit Woo (which is slimming world friendly).  Initially, it might seem like it needs a lot of herbs and spices, but looking at the recipe you could make a big batch of the rub and use it for months to come.  Simple and delicious.  We are certainly popping this on our menu plan.  Plus a bonus is that kids seem to love making anything with a coating, so you can get them involved in this.

This Szechuan Beef recipe is a real crowd-pleaser and so simple to make. It is a great fakeaway for all the family.

Szechuan Beef Fakeaway

This is my sister in laws slimming world synn free Szechuan Beef recipe that I pinched from her after she cooked it for us all.  She is a fabulous cook and this tasted as good as our local takeaways.   This only takes 15 minutes to cook so is fast food in the best way (but it does benefit from being marinated).  All the family love this and writing this has reminded me to pop it on the menu plan again.

I find it really hard to believe that this fish and chips is low syn, but it is and it is blooming delicious too.  I love that it is battered and that you can make your own tartar too.  My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

Burger in a Bowl

I have never had a burger in a bowl, but I am assured that they are delicious and Emma has a fabulously simple recipe for one here.  Now I know that this is something my boys would say no too, however, it would be really easy to shape the mix to make your own patties.  When we make homemade burgers we never add anything other than onions and a little spice. They are known as MumDonalds in our house!
