The importance of adding vegetables to your meals
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 for 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.

Slimming World Slow Cooker Tips
Before you start to think about recipes like this Slimming world chilli con carne with your slow cooker here are a few tips which may help. If you find your Slimming World chilli is a bit watery take the lid off the slow cooker and turn it up high for half an hour this can help evaporate some of the water.
Remember that nothing evaporates so you may need less liquid than in other recipes eg on the hob.
Get the best size slow cooker for your family there are lots of great ones on Amazon with many under £30 for a good brand and good size!
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 help too!
Shopping around or using apps to see which shops have offers on your usual products can make a big difference to your weekly shopping bill.
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. When cooking this Slimming World Chilli it really won’t be noticed if you use frozen onion for example.
Do you have any particular frozen vegetables you love? Do share them with me it is always nice to hear of people’s recommendations.
