Top Slimming World Kitchen Gadgets You Cannot Live Without

Since joining Slimming World I now have more gadgets in my kitchen than ever before. There are quite a few that I really couldn’t live without. I have compiled this list of my highly recommended gadgets that are not only a favourite with me but popular with other Slimming World followers too.

1. Vegetable Spiralizer

The Only Spiralizer – Spiral Slicer with a Strongest-and-Heaviest Duty Guarantee.
The Best for making long vegetable strands for healthy vegetable meals quickly. Perfect for making spiral slices from firm fruits and vegetables like apples, onions, carrots, zucchinis, cucumbers, cabbages, beetroots, turnips, rutabagas, cucumbers, and more. Check my blog post to find out more about Spiralizing.
I could literally not live without my Spiralizer… it’s amazing.

2. Actifry

Anyone who has had chips from an Actifry will know why this is a must in the kitchen. Cook healthy “fried” food using just a tiny bit of oil or frylight. The chips are amazing!

3. Nutribullet

Blend amazing nutritious and healthy smoothies, soups, pasta sauces etc. I literally could not live without this product. I make so many pasta sauces using the Nutribullet.

4. Slow Cooker

Okay this isn’t the cheapest slow cooker on the market.. but it’s definitely brilliant. The main reason I love this is because it comes with the saute pan which can be used on the hob to sear the meat (including an induction hob) also it can be placed in the oven. Also it fits perfectly into my Grey and White kitchen.

5. Soup Maker

I love this Morphy Richards soup maker, it’s perfect for making up a good hearty batch of Syn free soup. The main reasons I love a soup maker is because it’s less stressful, there is less washing up and it is a lot quicker too.

6. Kitchen Scales

My kitchen scales are very well used.. In fact I probably use them for every meal. Weighing out your healthy extras is the most important need for scales. I love these Duronic scales, they are really cheap and classy too.

Top Recommended Slimming World Books

I nowadays people tend to steer away from buying recipe books because there is so much information online. But I just LOVE to have a good recipe book to have a look through in the evening and when I am meal planning. There are some brilliant Slimming World books on the market so I thought I would share some of my favourites.

Slimming World Free Foods
120 guilt-free recipes for healthy appetites

The people at Slimming World know that all slimmers want plenty of gorgeous food – but to deny yourself is not the way to get slim and stay slim. This unique approach to slimming is based on a revolutionary concept – that of ‘Free Foods’ – foods you eat in any quantities, whenever you’re hungry. And they aren’t just typical diet staples such as lettuce and low-fat cottage cheese. Free Foods include pasta, rice, lean meat, fish, poultry, and fresh fruit and vegetables. Fancy a big plateful of vegetable curry with unlimited rice, or a pile of pasta with a spicy tomato sauce? How about a monster jacket potato with a tin of baked beans? Or a meaty tuna steak with a heap of ratatouille? Recipes such as Farfalle and mixed bean salad, Mild and creamy chicken curry, Fragrant pilaf, and many more besides, can be eaten as Free Foods when you are Food Optimising. Gone are the days of feeling as though you are missing out!

Slimming World 30-Minute Meals

When you’re feeling hungry or in a real hurry, it is so easy to opt for the quickest option. But fast food doesn’t have to be junk food. 30-Minute Meals helps you to provide nutritious, wholesome food for all the family, not just those who are slimming, without getting stuck in the kitchen for hours on end. This book is full to bursting with more than 120 recipes based on Slimming World’s acclaimed Food Optimising programme.
Highlights among the soups and starters are hot and sour seafood soup, chive and mushroom quiches, or pink peppercorn and smoke salmon pâté. For filling snacks, try the skillet ‘pizzas’ or Tex-Mex tacos, or for a truly tempting salad choose between tiger prawns and asparagus or grilled calamari and rocket. Meat and fish recipes include roasted citrus chicken and pork and mango parcels, or try oven-baked sea bass with bacon and cherry tomatoes. There are some wonderfully tempting vegetable dishes, such as baked spinach gnocchi or basil and chilli linguini, while the dessert menu includes amaretti stuffed nectarines and cinnamon poached pears. Anyone interested in easy-to-prepare, full-flavoured and healthy food will find this book useful, whether they are slimming or not!
