New Slimming World Shopping Essentials 24/11/17

Over in our Facebook group (where we now have over 329,000 members 😱 it keeps going up each week!) one of the hot topics of each week is spotting new products that are Slimming World friendly!

Tesco Padron Peppers

Padron Peppers - Pinch Of Nom Slimming World Shopping EssentialsPeppers are a really versatile Speed food!  You can eat them raw in salad and with dips, or cooked in a myriad of recipes.

One of my favourite dips is the Syn Free Beetroot and Mint Hummus.

Slimming World Shopping Essentials

These Padron Peppers are smaller than standard bell peppers. You can even cook them whole, in fact they’re often served this way as part of Tapas.

Slimming World Shopping Essentials

Why not try them alongside our Syn Free Patatas Bravas and create your own Tapas.

Padron Peppers are available from Tesco priced at £1.00 per 135g punnet.

You can find them here on the Tesco website

Tesco Festive Red Cabbage

Tesco Festive Red Cabbage - Pinch of Nom Slimming World Shopping EssentialsI love red cabbage, particularly when it’s cooked with spices. It’s a really comforting, but often overlooked side dish.

For several years, one of my good friends held a Boxing Day ‘Cold Meat and Pickle’ Party. It was a fabulous way to get through the piles of leftover turkey and other cold meats.

As the name suggests, she would serve a buffet of cold meats with a range of pickles and chutneys, but the star of the show was her spiced red cabbage. It tasted soooo good!

This Tesco Festive Red Cabbage would go so well with Christmas Dinner, but equally well with cold meats, pickles and jacket potatoes on Boxing Day.

It’s 5 Syns for a 300g pack on the app and costs £1.75 from Tesco.
You’ll find it here on the Tesco website.

Yeo Valley Bio Light Yogurt Strawberry

We were really quite excited to find these Yeo Valley Bio Light Yogurts.
Somehow bio yogurts always seem richer and creamier than some of the alternatives in the chilled dairy section.

Yeo Valley Bio Light Yogurt Strawberry - Pinch of Nom Slimming World Shopping Essentials

This one is no exception. It’s a blend of real organic fruit and thick, creamy, fat free Greek Style Yogurt.

As well as being organic, it’s fat free and contains nothing artificial. It’s Gluten Free too, with no artificial sweeteners.

It’s suitable for vegetarians, too. They’re Free on the Slimming World app.

A pack of 4 x 100g pots costs £2.50 from Tesco.

Youngs Gastro Marinade Basa Fillets

As you probably know, one of our favourite phrases is, ‘If it swims, it slims!’

Fish is great when you’re following Slimming World. It’s versatile and it makes a great meal which is easy to food optimise.

For a quick mid-week dinner, I love to make our Syn Free Fish Pie. All you need to do is add some speed vegetables and you’re done!Slimming World Shopping Essentials

Youngs is a name that’s synonymous with fish, and the Gastro range is a real winner. The fish cooks from frozen in the oven or microwave, so they’re ideal for a fast fishy feast!

Young’s Gastro Marinade Lemon And Herb Basa Fillets

Young's Gastro Marinade Lemon And Herb Basa Fillets - Pinch of Nom Slimming World Shopping EssentialsBasa Fillets in a Lemon, Dill & Parsley Marinade.

Young's Gastro Marinade Sweet Chilli Basa Fillets - Pinch of Nom Slimming World Shopping EssentialsIf you fancy something with a bit more zing, there’s another flavour marinade in the Young’s range.

As the name suggests, these Basa fillets have a sweet chilli marinade.

While these are cooking, you could rustle up a speedy stir-fry to serve with them!

Young’s Gastro Marinade Sweet Chilli Basa Fillets are 1.5 Syns each on the Slimming World app.  They cost £4.00 for two fillets from Tesco.

Prawns are a P (Protein) food, so they’re a fabulous free food when you’re on the Slimming World plan!

These delicious Whole Raw Black Tiger Prawns would make a spectacular and luxurious addition to our recipe for 1 Syn Paella on the website.

Nakd Banana Bread Bar

Nakd Banana Bread Bar - Pinch of Nom Slimming World Shopping EssentialsWe often have people asking us for flapjack recipes over in our Facebook group.  It’s one of those delicious treats that is tricky to recreate without spending all our precious Syns.

Whilst our yummy Baked Oats recipes  will help many people with this craving, sometimes it’s about grabbing something quickly.

Slimming World Shopping Essentials

These Nakd Banana Bread bars would make an ideal low Synned snack. They’re made from 100% natural ingredients with gluten free oats and no added sugar.

Tesco No Added Sugar Original Chocolate Spread - Pinch of Nom Slimming World Shopping EssentialsChocolate spread is one of those tempting treats that we can still enjoy on the Slimming World plan.

I often have some Low Syn Banana and Chocolate Pancakes for a weekend breakfast. When you have the luxury of a bit more time in the morning, these are perfect.

Low Syn Banana and Chocolate Pancakes | Slimming World

Served with a pile of Speed Fruit, I love to add a tablespoon of chocolate spread, too.

This Tesco Chocolate Spread is really tasty, and is much better value than certain named brands.

If you want to grab a last minute bargain, you might find some good deals in the supermarkets.

  • Extra Fine Dark Chocolate

A square of Lindt Chocolate is 2.5 Syns on the SW app, so we think these will be a similar value per piece.

Robinsons Fruit Creations Squash

We often get asked in the Facebook group about how to make sure we drink enough water. Drinking water and staying hydrated is really important for everyone, whether you’re on Slimming World or not.

When you’re trying to increase your water intake, you can make it more interesting with a dash of no added sugar squash.

Reduced alcohol or alcohol free Lager is listed on the Slimming World app at 3.5 Syns per 330mls, which is a handy coincidence, as these Budweiser Prohibition cans are 330mls.
