It is the reader’s responsibility to check Slimming World syn values, WW points and any other allowances themselves as those given are approximate.

Vegetable lasagne for dieters

If you follow Slimming World, Weight Watchers (WW), Noom or any other weight loss plan you can usually count the ingredients within this recipe in your allowances.

It is of course important to check yourself any plan you follow and remember all nutritional information and ingredients are found in the recipe card below.

For Slimming World

This is an unofficial Slimming World vegetable lasagne that is vegetarian and I believe it to be Syn free (uses one healthy extra A choice per person).

It is delicious and loved by vegetarians as well as meat-eaters as a tasty Slimming World lasagne. It is full of flavour but easy to prepare and then leave in the oven to cook.

Adding extra veggies to this healthy vegetable lasagne recipe

This healthy vegetable lasagne recipe is packed full of vegetables but if you want to have some on the side or a salad on the side too then go for it!

If you follow Slimming World then you will know many vegetables are referred to as speed foods.

Vegetables are low in calories compared to their density. This essentially means that they fill you up with very few calories.

The more vegetables you have in a meal either as a side dish or mixed in with the meal itself the lower-calorie the meal tends to be. A filling but low-calorie meal is perfect for weight loss.

All my recipes include vegetables where possible but do feel free to add more as an accompaniment when you can.

Always choose vegetables that you enjoy because otherwise you will begrudge eating them and are more likely to before long stop cooking them at all.

Trying vegetables cooked differently or with herbs and spices can make them a little more exciting too.

What is Quark?

It is a soft cheese made with skimmed milk. It’s rather like Philadelphia in its consistency and, due to the fat-free aspect of it, there is little flavour. Because of this, quark on its own is not often enjoyed.

Quark is, due to its limited flavour, very versatile and useful in some great recipes. I frequently use it in both sweet and savoury recipes and share a variety of my favourite quark recipes here.

Healthy Lunches

If you are eating healthily then you may have difficulty in finding lunches for work.

This is just one of many amazing Slimming World lunch ideas I have found so do check out my other recipes for more ideas.

If you take lunch then you are so much less likely to buy food which inevitably will be less healthy. Taking a variety of food throughout the week to work keeps your lunchtimes interesting and stops you from getting bored.

Even if, like me, you work alone at home it can make such a difference having your food already prepared for you. Why not give it a go and make sure you build a variety of lunches into your weekly meal plan.
