Our recipe pages are here to provide new ideas and inspiration for healthy, slimming and easy meals to fit in with your plan.
Our recipes are all our own homemade favourites. We aim to add as many Syn Free Recipes, Low Syn Recipes and Extra Easy Recipes as we can.
We do not claim to be professional chefs or specialist dieticians, and that is why we often do not add specific cooking instructions or exact quantity amounts for our recipes. We believe that each individual has their own preferential tastes, and therefore the recipes we print are for you to use as guides, take ideas from, experiment with, and develop for yourself by adding or taking away whichever ingredients you like.
We do not use fancy ingredients; we try to invent recipes from ingredients that we believe most people already have in their cupboards and fridges.
These pages will be updated regularly with new additions, so re-visit and check-in again soon.
If you have already used up your healthy `b` allowance, why not try a bread-less sandwich or wrap as an alternative?
If you have already used up your healthy extra `b` for the day or simply want an alternative snack or sandwich, this is a great idea. You can use up virtually anything you have left in your fridge? It`s also a great snack to take to work in a lunch box or to take on picnics. If you have it wrapped, consider tying some cotton round it, or wrap it tightly in clingfilm (so that the contents haven’t fallen out before you are ready to eat it).
If you are using your reduced fat cheese and light philadelphia as a healthy extra `a` then this is Syn Free!
This recipe is great as a lunch soup
You can even double up and use it as a pasta sauce for your tea.
You may want to consider decorating this soup with a swirl of fat free yoghurt or fromage frais, and then garnish with basil or herbs – this creates a real dinner party/restaurant effect easily and cheaply.
This is a really quick and easy soup to make. It is perfect to make with any left over vegetables you may have in your fridge, so be inventive and throw it all in – there is no point letting any vegetables (left overs) perish and go to waste when you can easily turn them into delicious, filling, SuperFree Soups that will help to speed up your weight loss.
If you don’t have fresh tomatoes, simply use a can of tinned tomatoes. If you don’t have fresh beetroot, you could consider using a jar of pickled beetroot. I would recommend rinsing it under the tap first to get rid of excess vinegar. The result is a very sweet and sour tomato soup or sauce.

Syns Per Serving: Syn Free (and full of SuperFree too)
You may wish to consider finishing the dish by adding a swirl or small dollop of melted extra light Philadelphia (or similar) with chopped chives to garnish? If you haven’t used your Healthy extra `a` for the day, you may also want to try adding some grated lighter mature cheese into the risotto rice or on the top of the dish. You could even add chopped ham, chicken or bacon (if you prefer meatier dishes).
