My name is Katie and I am a passionate home cook who loves creating her own recipes at home and discovering new ingredients, flavours and combinations.
As a classical ballet teacher and avid dancer I spent a lot of my performing years ignoring healthy food options and diving straight into high carb, sugar-full and energy enhancing foods.
After giving birth to my beautiful baby boy in August 2016 I needed to loose my baby-weight and get back to my previous fitness and I took the steps to joining a Slimming World group with the most fabulous consultant Tracy. From the first meeting I was hooked and I was determined that in 2o17 I would get the opportunity to hit my target.
As of this post I have lost 1 stone and 2lbs and I am 8lbs off my target weight.
As I love creating recipes, I thought that creating some of my own inline with the SW EE plan would keep my passion alive and keep the whole “dieting plan” more interesting and exciting.
A few lovely members of my group requested my recipes after I had posted pictures and ideas on our private FB group. Then the idea hit me to create this blog to share ideas further afield.
This blog is in no way endorsed by Slimming World – it’s just little old me creating ideas in my spare time – normally when my little boy is asleep!
Some recipes will have Syn Values or will need to be synned if you are not using some ingredients as your Healthy Extras. I will some times publish Syn values but you must check with your plans, sites and books as to whether the Syn value would be the same for you. Don’t rely purely on me – in case I am wrong!
So enjoy and create and I hope this allows your weight-loss journey to be full of flavour!
