Muller Lights no longer Syn-free - and they're not the only food changing!



There have been absolute SCENES on my Facebook page and Facebook group this morning, as it was announced that our trusty Muller Light yogurts will no longer be free! The popular yogurts, which come in a variety of awesome flavours, have previously always been 'free' on the Slimming World plan. I have loads of recipes featuring it on this very website too! It's a staple for any SW member.


Anyone eating a 'free' Muller Light every day will now have to lose 1 Syn from their daily allowance.

To be honest though, I think a lot of Slimming World members have taken 'free' a little too literally. While things like pasta are free to enjoy on Slimming World, eating 4KG of it a day will certainly not help you lose weight. It's the same concept with these Muller Lights. People have been consuming multiple pots per day, and with the high sweetener content and 99 calories per tub multiple pots can affect your losses.

It's not just Muller that have been hit by this new ruling. Instant mashed potato (e.g. smash) and tinned pasta in sauce (e.g. Spaghetti hoops) are also having syn values introduced.



Anyone eating a instant mashed potato will now have to lose 3.5 Syns from their daily allowance for 100g



 Anyone eating spaghetti hoops will now have to lose 0.5 Syns from their daily allowance for 100g


A Slimming World spokesperson said: “Our nutrition team routinely review our Food Optimising eating plan to ensure it’s up to date, in line with the latest guidance, and to take into account feedback from our 5,000 Consultants and 900,000 Slimming World members.

“In addition, a number of products – fat-free flavoured yogurts, tinned pasta shapes in tomato sauce and instant mashed potato – that were previously Free on our plan, meaning they could be eaten without weighing, counting or measuring, will now have a small Syn value (all food and drink that isn’t Free has a Syn value and members enjoy between five and 15 Syns daily).

Speed Food List for Slimming World

What is speed food?



Speed foods are fruits and vegetables that should take up 1/3 of your plate with every meal. They are proven to help speed up weight loss, and are a very important part of Slimming World. 

All recipes and foods on my website should be served with plenty of speed food. Here is Slimming World's list of free foods. Some contain links to recipes on my website that they are included in.

Ways to incorporate Speed Foods into meals on Slimming World 

Add fruit to your cereals. I love adding blueberries and blackcurrants to my breakfast, or on top of my baked oats


When eating a snack like a yogurt, add some fruit to it or on the side. 

If you have a craving for chocolate or something similar, quench the cravings with natures sweets- fruit. 

A breakfast sandwich can be packed with lettuce, tomatoes and cucumber, or served with some salad on the side. 

A big portion of roasted veg as your side dish (onion, peppers, carrots, tomatoes, salt, pepper and some seasoning) means you're getting a wider selection of speed food on your plate in one portion. 

Vegetables can be slow cooked in stock, such as green beans, which gives the veg the flavour of the stock and takes away 'veg' flavour. 

Swap chips or mash with an alternative mash, such as carrot and suede or butternut squash, and parsnip fries.

Swap rice for cauliflower rice. 

Add vegetables to pasta dishes. You can always bulk out a meal with extra speed food. Adding onions, peppers and tomatoes to a pasta fish, for example.

Swap the meat for vegetables in things like a stir fry, double the veg added instead.

Notes

This list is updated and changed regularly, so it is always best to check the most up to date version. 

Skinny Booze

This post was created in collaboration with Skinny Booze

If I had to pick one thing to use my syns on, it would be a few cheeky glasses of alcohol at the weekend. I very often save my syns up just to enjoy a little tipple!

I recently discovered Skinny Booze, who offer the UK’s most exciting collection of low calorie alternatives to loads of your favourite beverages. SkinnyBooze offers lower calorie wine, beer, champagne, gin and premixed cocktails. They also offer low sulphur wine, gluten-free lager, or vegan-friendly alcohol.

I've been drinking their products for a while now, and wanted to share some of my favourites with you.


Order your Skinny Booze here SPF10 which entitles everyone to 10% off their entire order. Minimum spend is £30.

Larger

With around 35% fewer calories per bottle than regular larger, this is something special for all those  worried about the dreaded beer belly!


I love this because you would never know that it is lower calorie, as it has the same great taste as normal larger. I am a big fan of a glass bottle too and think it makes everything taste better.

Me and my boyfriend love to share a few of these at the weekend, without the guilt!

Cider

With around 40% fewer calories than regular cider, you can have all the taste, without the guilt at only 149 calories per bottle! I love cider, but it always makes me feel super bad after drinking it, knowing how many calories I just consumed. 

Check out my recipe for Slow Cooker Creamy Cider Chicken.

Feather Falls - Chardonnay

'Lemon in colour and medium bodied with hints of pear, guava and apple. Perfect amounts of oak and vanilla to balance the flavours of a typical yet delicate Low Calorie Chardonnay.'


This is super light and crisp, and paired perfectly with these rainbow fruit skewers and white chocolate dipping sauce!

Skinny Booze have an extensive range of red, white and rose wine, with a taste to suit every pallet- all with fewer calories. 

 They even offer premixed cocktails with 50% fewer calories on average in each can, which comes in cosmo and margarita!
