I don’t often have a healthy b option spare at the end of the day but when I do this is a great recipe to try. It uses the 35g of oats, a yoghurt and tonnes of fruit, so a great way to add lots of speed foods.
- 35 g rolled oats (Mine were gluten free)
- 3 eggs
- 1 pot of Muller Light (I used vanilla with choc chips)
- 1 tub of Quark
- Fresh fruit
Beat the eggs.
Stir in the oats and Muller Light
Spray a frying pan with Fylight and pour in some of the mixture. Cook for about 3 mins per side. They are really hard to turn over but they get easier to do as you practise.
Make a topping by adding Quark and fresh fruit.
Optional: 2 syns if you mix 11g Highlights hot chocolate to the quark and mix it up…delicious!
OK, I finally opened the can and made Diet Coke chicken. It was really Pepsi Max chicken but you get the idea.
Once you get over the initial horror of putting a fizzy drink into a meal you’ll realise it’s really great. It actually tastes fantastic! A lovely, slightly sweet and rich sauce. As I was eating it I couldn’t believe it was synfree! This will definitely be one of my regular meals now.
- 4 chicken breasts cut into pieces
- 1 onion sliced
- 2 peppers chopped into chunks
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- 2tsp Henderson’s Relish (or Worcestershire sauce if you can have gluten)
- 1tbsp of Kikkoman gluten free soy sauce (or regular soy sauce if you can have gluten)
- 4 tsp tomato puree
- 8 tbsp passata
- 1 tsp mixed herbs
- 1 330ml can of Diet Coke
- 200ml chicken stock (I used Knorr stock cubes)
- Fry the chicken, onion and peppers in Frylight for 4-5 minutes.
- Add the diet coke, stock, passata, tomato purée, garlic, Henderson’s Relish, Kikkoman gluten free soy sauce and mixed herbs and stir.
- Bring to the boil, cover, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 20-30 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
Serve with: mash, new potatoes, rice…

After a visit at work from OFSTED this week, I needed to de-stress a little. My husband took me out for a meal after work on Friday. I was really excited because he’d found a place that did gluten-free pasta.
We went to Prezzo at Sheffield Centertainment. The restaurant was clean and the staff were friendly so that was a good start. I asked about gluten-free options and was amazed when they brought a gluten-free menu with lots of options. I was overwhelmed with choice! In the end I went for the chicken and asparagus risotto as I don’t get to have this very often. It’s not very Slimming World friendly (think about 550 cals), but hey, I needed a treat. I didn’t have a dessert or any alcohol so using this as flexible syns.
I felt reassured by the amazing menu. When they took our order they even doubled checked that it was the gluten-free version of the risotto that I wanted.
My husband’s spaghetti carbonara looked lovely and so did my risotto. It was very tasty! Not healthy, but worth the calories. I’d love to go back as a treat sometime and would probably go for something a little less rich.
