As I’ve said before, there are some things you only know if you’ve ever joined Slimming World (like you’re the only fucker who’s ever heard of Quark and you’ll quite happily try to pass off a walk to the offy for prosecco as body magic).
While you’re first starting out it can be a bit of a minefield getting your head around free food and speed food and healthy extras all all that BUT it really does teach you how to have a better relationship with food. You’ll fall in love with cooking everything from scratch (because you don’t really have much of choice tbh) and seeing what inventions and junk food alternatives you can make out of nothing more than caulifower, a spice rack and hope. Keeping a food diary definitely helps get your head round it all which is why I designed one after following SW – but let’s assume you already have one because this post isn’t about that.
There are certain thing you can buy to make life that little bit easier when it comes to cooking, because let’s face it, we’re all too busy to spend hours in the kitchen and can be tempted to make dead easy convenience food that quickly turns boring and then even more quickly turns into phoning a Dominos.
8 things that make Slimming World 10x Easier
Whether it’s whizzing up wholemeal breadcrumbs for your KFC style fakeaway (fit by the way), turning your cauliflower into caulifower rice (for cauliflower pizza base 😈) or blasting your mushy peas and beans into a base for a curry sauce, a blender is a life saver. The Salter Nutri Pro is brilliant and it comes with 3 interchangeable cups so if a recipe requires blending more than one thing then it’s easy enough to inter-change them without having to do the dishes in between. It’s technically a juicer but we all know juicing fruit is a mortal syn on Slimming World. Bless you my child, you are absolved, go in peace.
