Biscoff Cinnamon Roll Mugcake Recipe | Slimming Recipe

slimming worrld dessert Biscoff Cinnamon Roll Mugcake Recipe

A delicious Slimming World Friendly Biscoff cinnamon roll mugcake, that's ready in just 60 seconds, only calories and only 4 ingredients!

I've got a real thing for cinnamon at the moment, and I've always had a thing for Biscoff Lotus Spread. This is a super tasty little treat, that is really easy to make, and very delicious. 

If you have a microwave, this cinnamon roll is ready in just 60 seconds!

slimming worrld dessert Biscoff Cinnamon Roll Mugcake Recipe

There are only 4 main ingredients as well, making them super cheap to make too. 

If you wanted to reduce syns or calories, you could leave out the extra drizzle of Biscoff spread over the top. 

I served mine with some fruit, and it was absolutely divine! But you could also just eat it on it's own. 

The mug cake really swells up in the microwave, so if you think it looks a little small before putting it in, don't worry!

You could also play around with different flavours, such as Nutella or anything chocolate. 

This recipe made 2 rolls.

Creamy Spinach & Broccoli Pasta with Garlic & Herb Crumb | Slimming Recipe

Creamy Spinach pasta recipe

A delicious vegetarian Slimming World friendly pasta bake with spinach and broccoli, and a crispy garlic and herb savoury crumble topping.

Here is another absolutely delicious Slimming World Friendly Pasta Recipe. This one is vegetarian too, and with the twist of a tasty garlic and herb topping. 

It was super easy to prepare, and ready in under 45 minutes, so perfect for weeknight cooking. 

Goes perfectly with a big side salad, or just on it's own. I had some left over which I took to work for lunch the next day.

slimming world vegetarian recipe Creamy Spinach & Broccoli Pasta low syn

I used low fat cram cheese in this recipe to get the nice creamy flavour and texture, but if you wanted to reduce the calories or syns, you could replace the cream cheese with quark or crème fresh instead. 

Just don't overheat as it can curdle!

I added the spinach at the very end so that it wasn't too watery and still leafy, but you can add it in sooner if you like it to be less leaf like!

This is a vegetarian recipe, but if you fancied adding some meat, chicken would work really well in this dish. 

slimming world vegetarian recipe Creamy Spinach & Broccoli Pasta low syn

I was inspired to make the crumb topping thanks to my love of garlic bread! I love a bit of crunch with my pasta, so instead of making the full garlic bread, the garlic and herb crumb was invented! 

Mixed with cheese, it's almost like a savoury crumble topping, and really takes this dish to the next level!

Here’s How to Set Up a Cookery School in the UK


Image Source



You’re probably reading this because you enjoy cooking, and you want to teach your skills to other like-minded individuals. But, you currently reside abroad and wish to make the UK your new home and perhaps settle down and raise a family here.

Moving to a new country can be both an exciting and anxious time in anyone’s life, and those emotions intensify if you’re also trying to set up a business at the same time. The good news is you can do both simultaneously without having a nervous breakdown.

Here’s what you need to know about setting up a cookery school in the UK and bringing with you some of the world’s best-kept recipe secrets to teach to your students:


Moving to the UK



First of all, you will need to plan your trip in advance. As you can imagine, there is a lot to consider when moving to Britain from another country. For example, you’ll need to organise packing your belongings and getting them shipped to the UK.

You will also need to organise your entry visa. You must choose the right one for your purposes, as entering the UK on the wrong visa could result in you getting deported and refused re-entry!

Once you’ve got approval for the relevant visa to stay in the UK and start a business, you can start planning your new cookery school venture. Note that you should begin the application process for an indefinite leave to remain UK so that you can stay permanently.

Other things to consider before setting foot on British soil include renting or buying a home and getting a car.


Registering Your Business



When you’re in the UK and can legally start a business, you’ll need to do so by registering it with HMRC. There are many different legal structures you can consider, ranging from sole trader to limited company.

The one you select for your cookery school business will depend on many factors, which is why it makes sense to discuss your ideas with a qualified accountant or business expert beforehand.

Finding Suitable Premises


Once you’ve registered your business, you’ll need to find a location that’s suitable to host your cookery classes. As you can appreciate, the premises should be large enough to hold a large class of students comfortably.

But, it should also provide a range of modern cooking appliances, storage, and cooking facilities. The premises you use for your business must also abide by all relevant UK health and safety laws and rules pertaining to food hygiene and safety.

You may also need to obtain a licence to run a food business. It’s worth contacting the Food Standards Agency, a UK government agency, for advice on what you need to do.


Setting Up Your Classes


One final thing to do, of course, is set up your cookery classes. You’ll need to think about what you want to teach (i.e., a curriculum of cookery courses for your students), how many people you want to teach simultaneously, and what you wish to charge for your lessons.

You’ll also need to market your cookery school so that you’ve always got plenty of regular bookings.

By considering all the points above, you’ll soon enjoy a new life in the UK and run your dream cookery school!

How to Boost the Nutrients in Your Diet






Getting the right mix of macro and micronutrients in your diet is essential for good health. We all need a combination of protein, carbohydrates and fats for our bodies to function, but there are other nutrients to consider too.

Vitamins, fibre, minerals and water are just as important and should be an essential part of your diet. By learning more about the nutritional content of food, you can create delicious recipes that give you the right combination of nutrients.

Of course, we don’t all need the same amount of nutrients. A 250-pound man is usually going to need to consume more protein than a 120-pound woman, for example. By talking to a doctor or nutritionist, you can find out exactly what nutrient intake you should be aiming for.

Once you know what nutrients you need and how much of them you need, you’ll be able to take steps to incorporate them into your diet. To get started, take a look at these top tips for boosting nutrient intake:

Try Protein Powder


When you need to increase your protein intake, protein powders can be an effective way of doing it. Most people assume that protein shakes are the only option, but this isn’t the case. Protein powder can be a great addition to smoothies and milkshakes, so grab some fresh ingredients and blend your own recipe.

Alternatively, unflavoured protein powder can often be mixed into recipes, such as homemade pasta sauce, stews or even mashed potato. This can be a great way to increase the protein content of your meals and an easy way to ensure you get the right amount of protein in your diet.

Consume More Water


Adults should generally consume an average of 1.2-1.5 litres of water a day, although tea and coffee, low-fat milk and fruit juice can account for some of this. While drinking more water might seem like the simplest way to increase your intake, don’t forget about the water you consume in your food.

Using ingredients with a high water content can help you to stay hydrated throughout the day and you’ll increase your water consumption without even realising it. Cucumber, tomatoes and broccoli are more than 90% water, while apples and oranges consist of around 85% water. Incorporate them into your recipes and you can reduce the risk of dehydration and fatigue.

Try Supplements


No matter how much you endeavour to eat a healthy, balanced diet, there may be days when your food won’t deliver all the nutrients you need. Fortunately, supplementing with vitamins can be an effective way to remedy this. Essential vitamins, like folic acid, vitamin A and calcium, can be taken in tablet form, so it’s easy to ensure you’re getting the right amount.

However, you can supplement your diet with other alternatives too. Omega-3 supplements can boost brain function, for example, while CBD gummies can relieve anxiety. Similarly, magnesium can relieve muscle tension and green tea extract can regulate your blood sugar. Find the right combination of supplements for you and use them to optimise your nutrient intake.



Choose Nutrient-Dense Foods


Some foods naturally contain more nutrients than others, which is why it’s important to be aware of what different ingredients bring to the table. Salmon, kale, garlic, potatoes, blueberries and eggs are some of the most nutrient-rich options, so try to include them in your diet frequently. Choosing foods that offer a wide variety of nutrients can help to ensure you’re getting a good mix of the vitamins and nutrients you need.

Plan Weight Loss Carefully


If you want to lose a few pounds, changing your diet and eating healthier options is usually the best way to do it. As well as enjoying your new shape, maintaining a healthy weight can enhance your health too. Weight loss requires you to burn more calories than you consume, also known as achieving a calorie deficit. However, it’s important to ensure you’re not cutting out nutrients, as well as calories.

Low-calorie options don’t have to be devoid of nutrients. In fact, you’ll find that low-calorie fruits and vegetables are amongst the most nutrient-rich ingredients. Similarly, proteins, like meat, eggs or tofu, contain a good range of nutrients too. However, pre-packaged low-calorie food may not contain many nutrients at all. By planning your weight loss carefully, choosing nutrient-rich, low-calorie ingredients and shedding the pounds gradually, you can achieve your goal while boosting your health.

Track Your Intake


No-one wants to spend time calculating nutrients every time they prepare a meal or grab a snack, so save time by tracking your intake automatically. There are a number of apps that will tell you exactly how many nutrients you’re getting from your food. All you need to do is log what you eat and drink throughout the day and let the app calculate your macro and micronutrient intake. This can be a great way to get an accurate insight into what you might be missing out on and it’s an easy, hassle-free way to monitor your progress.

Eat a Varied Diet


When you find a healthy meal you really enjoy, it’s tempting to eat it again and again…and again. While there’s no harm enjoying your favourite healthy recipes regularly, consuming the same foods on a daily basis can limit the range of nutrients you’re getting. By varying the ingredients you use and the meals you prepare, you can change things up and ensure you’re getting all the nutrients you need. What’s more – you can experiment with new cuisines and cooking methods to create fresh, great-tasting meals.

Know What You’re Eating


When you prepare food at home, you know exactly what goes into every dish each day. This makes it easier to check what your nutrient intake is and to increase it or change it around a little, when necessary. While everyone enjoys a takeaway once in a while, donning an apron and honing your cooking skills is one of the best ways to ensure you’re eating a healthy diet that’s packed with nutrients.
