A selection of Slimming World friendly recipes to help you enjoy the festive period without feeling guilty or gaining all of the weight you have worked so hard to lose in the past few months!
It’s that time of year again, you are faced with temptation everywhere you look. Christmas has always been a hard time for me.. I start with good intentions, maybe a day or two off of plan and then straight back on it. But what actually happens is I gorge on everything in sight for 2 or 3 weeks and gain a stone!
This year we have family visiting so I am sure to be filling my face with mince pies and turkey until at least 2nd January!!
