Slimming world sweet and sour chicken


Hello Dear Reader,

This isn’t from the Slimming World website but it follows their healthy eating plan. We’re both following this as our clothes are tight and we need to stick to a lighter plateful. 

Here’s my sweet and sour.

I used a kilo bag of stir fry veggies from Farm Foods. 2 defrosted chicken breasts, also from Farmfoods and stir fried them with minced garlic, chili and ginger and I use the lazy in a jar as there’s no waste and I’ve always got them in the cupboard.

I cooked some brown rice and made my sweet and sour sauce

20g of corn flour, 3 heaped tbsp of tomato purée, tbsp wine vinegar, 3 tbsp of powdered sweetener, 80ml of water, 1 tbsp of soy sauce (gf in my case) blend in a mug or jug.

When the chicken and vegetables are cooked, add the garlic, chili and ginger and cook for one minute.

Add the sweet and sour sauce, whilst it’s cooking taste and add a splash more vinegar, or sweetener or soy sauce to your taste. If the sauce is thicker than you like, a a dash more water. 

Serve with rice. Cheap, cheerful and sugar free. Does anyone else have a slimming world recipe you’ve adapted on the cheap,

Until tomorrow,

Love Froogs x

Britain’s cheapest supermarket ?

Hello Dear Reader,

This is NOT a sponsored post. I just wanted to save you some money.

You may have had Farm Foods in your area for a while but our nearest store in Bodmin has opened recently. I went there today for the first time and I thought I’d share my experience. 

Farm foods was started in Scotland and has been around for years and is a well respected discount retailer. It reminded me of Iceland in its earlier days, when it used to be cheaper than it now. Farm Foods had a lot of bulk offers and I made the most of those bulk offers and bought meat and veg multi pack offers. I thought the store would be fantastic for thrifty money savers who have a big freezer and want to stock up the pantry. I know of families who take a trip to farm foods once a month and fill up their chest freezer. I don’t blame them, it was certainly cheap

There were of course, as in any supermarket, plenty of convenience food and foods that make life easier., who can resist a kilo of meatballs for £3.33, I bought the chicken thighs, gammon steaks and pork loin steaks. They will certainly make my life easier. 

I’ve always been a fan of frozen food as nothing goes off or gets wasted. I know some people don’t like to buy any frozen food and that’s ok but if you get a chance, take a look and fill up your freezer. If the leaflet comes through your door, there are discount vouchers that you can tear off and take with you. I saved £2.50 off my £25 shop with my voucher. I bought frozen meat and veg, eggs, ice lollies and bacon, in fact loads to keep us going for quite a while.

Over to you, has anyone else been there? What did you think?

Until tomorrow,

Love Froogs xxxx
