I recently made this sweetcorn fritter recipe and when I posted it on my Instagram (@justaveragejen) a few people asked me for the recipe and it was very popular. It is perfect for lunches and can be made a few days in advance.
Why you need vegetables to lose weight
Everyone knows vegetables are good for you, don’t they? They are healthy and filling for very few calories!
The best vegetables are those with low-calorie density. Basically, we are talking about the healthier vegetables – potatoes don’t count but butternut squash is much healthier for example!
This means if you eat 100g of spinach, for example, it is just 23 calories and obviously, 100g of anything would fill you up significantly. On the other hand, 100g of crisps, which would be just as filling, is around 536 calories!

This recipe as a healthy lunch
If you are eating healthily then you may have difficulty 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 like Sweetcorn Fritter.
Healthier snack tips
There are so many tasty healthier snacks you can make if you are trying to lose weight. It means you don’t have to get bored of one thing and can vary your diet considerably. This is one of my favourites though and you will want to eat more and more of it I am sure!
Do you enjoy snacks when really you are not hungry and instead are boredom or comfort eating? I do this a lot so this is why it is so important to find low-calorie snacks when you can.
Budget shopping tips
I try to ensure all of the recipes I make are accessible for everyone. By this, I mean that they do not use obscure hard to find ingredients. I also believe that recipes should use as few ingredients as possible and avoid expensive ingredients. We would all much rather spend money on holidays than expensive ingredients wouldn’t we?
Buying herbs and spices in bulk is something I really recommend. It can save a lot of money in the long term but also mean you never run out! I find putting them on Amazon subscribe and save helps too! Additionally don’t forget to check out the yellow sticker reductions and freeze what you can.
Frozen vegetables are nutritionally just as good as fresh usually so do keep an eye on those too to save money. Do you have any particular frozen vegetables you love? Do share them with me it is always nice to hear people’s recommendations.
