completly syn free snacks.

#1
hey guys.

I was thinking today, about ideas for my weeks when iv literally got NO syns to spare what so ever, and what i could eat.
I often have weeks where i could easily eat an entire cow. i just cant get enough food, and this often results in me attempting to consume lots of low syn snacks, but when i cant stop.. those few syns can add up to alot before you know it.



any ideas? x

If I have no syns left and I'm still hungry I eat VLF yoghurt with chopped up fruit and a little bit of sweetener. I have been known to eat packets of cooked meat on a hungry day too!

If I'm following a red day I tend to have some cooked chicken breast in the fridge I can snack on, or boiled eggs are a staple for me.

I like to whip up a quick 2-egg omlette, or have a mugshot or some low fat supernoodles! I went to Mecca Bingo last week and everyone's fish & chips made me feel so peckish, so I went and bought a big bowl of mushy peas (they do the best mushy peas!!!) Everyone in the queue was looking at me like I had 2 heads and some asked me if I was pregnant! I thoroughly enjoyed them, and I'm so glad they're free (I mainly do EE!)X

Only the boring normal fruit and carrots think lol
What I sometimes have as a treat but still super free is a strawberry kebab (just strawberrys threaded on a stick) with a vanilla muller light with chocolate sprinkles... it's a bit like have a chocolate fondue if you use your imagination lol
Sometimes if I know I'm having a late tea so i'm going to be peckish I cook a bit more for dinner so I can save a bit of it and have it for a snack.

Although it's one of the 'food abuse' things, I still make the couscous cake. I am not grinding down the couscous, and only using the same as I'd use in a portion eaten on it's own, so that's how I justify it!

I find it really filling and stodgy, and sometimes on hungry days it's just what I need!

It's not food abuse hun - SW confirmed it's fine as long as you're making up the couscous as directed, so eat guilt-free!

Well, you could always eat that cow - so long as you cut off the fatty bits first... :D

As for my syn-free snacks, pretty much what everyone else has suggested - fruit, chopped veg and cottage cheese, VLF yogurt, cooked meats.

The omlette idea's a good one - that'd be quite filling I think. And you could always make a sweet version that tastes more like a pancake if it's sweetness you're wanting (recipe here: http://www.minimins.com/slimming-world-recipes/72066-mmmm-yummy-syn-free-pancakes.html)

Im pretty similar too....mugshots are good and if i only have a salad for lunch its nice to have something warm...and my dessert most evenings is VLF fromage frais, frozen berries and a bit of sweetner...yum yum :)

Green days : savoury rice, mugshots (orangey one for me), boiled eggs, pickled eggs, pickled onions, Mullerlight banana & custard with a banana sliced into it.

In the new food directory there is a section for superfree foods branded and non-branded, and also green and red day foods branded and non-branded. Best book in this universe imo!!

cold chicken drumsticks with the skin taken off are free and they do it for me :) or supernoodles if im feeling lazy!

and if im feeling good then apples, grapes, strawberries, mullerlights, carrots etc.

If I can be bothered, I will whzz up a hummus style dip with chickpeas, yogurt and garlic (paprika also) and eat it with raw veggies - carrots, cucumbers, strips of pepper or celery etc.

More usually, I attack the fruit bowl, or make a mugshot ..
