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.
9Egg poaching pan
If you want to get really fancy with your eggs (there’s nothing fancier than a poached egg) then you need this egg poaching pan from Salter. Poached eggs are notoriously difficult to get right – let’s face it, who can actually be arsed standing there trying to create a spinning vortex of vinegar water and tyrying to crack an egg in there fast enough for it to stay together or faff about with little food bags? This purpose made pan has little poached egg dishes that sit on top of a basin of boiling water meaning perfect poached eggs every time – they go great with bacon medallions, spinach for speed and some wholemeal toast a Slimming World brekkie fave! As an added bonus, if you remove the poached egg tray, the pan is the perfect size for making another low carb favourite; pizza omelette.
Go forth and slim fabheads!
