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.
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.
8An egg boiler
Eggs are the perfect SW breakfast – they’re free and filled with protein, which is great if you’re getting your head around the low-carb SP days. This egg boiler from Judge will make perfect eggs every time – you can even choose whether you want them hard, medium or soft boiled. You just pour the measured amount of water in the dish, put your eggs in and then they cook automatically – so even if you never have time for breakfast in the morning, they can cook while you’re getting ready for work, so honestly you have no excuse. Bring on the dippy eggs and wholemeal soldiers!
