    The little book of sauces is good for making healthy swaps, little book of lunches has some good ideas for variety. If you like doing Red or Green, there are books called 50 Free Green Recipes and same for Red. I liked the Extra Easy Entertaining one too for a few posher options.
    Made it to target after nearly ten months on Slimming World and now working to maintain a super healthy lifestyle.
    (Not complaining if I lose a little more but the next goal is to get fit and be happy!)

    I've got '100 Green Recipes' and it's great - was only 2.95 at class too - bargain!

    I wouldn't bother with the books TBH. There are always loads of receipes in the mag and there are loads on here to try. Have a look at the receipe sticky.

    Yup, I second that. It's a great book. The other one I use a lot is family feasts on a budget because it uses a lot of store cupboard staples so I find if I have not had time to do a special shop for a list of ingredients there is always something in there that I can throw together last minute

    thanks for informing me of that! That sounds quite a little treasure of a book, I will have to get it! X

    I bought the new Extra Easy Express and it's fantastic... I found with the others there wasn't very much I'd like in them but this one is packed full of favourites. I made the quick beef stew last night (added mushrooms, spinach and broccoli leaving out the cauliflower!) and it was the best stew I've eaten!
