When I decided to make the Creamy Chicken Pasta yesterday, I needed to go and get some Quark as it’s not something that we usually have in the house. We’re luckily right around the corner from our local Lidl so I went in armed with my phone to see what treasures Lidl offers a Slimming World gal.
Unfortunately my phone didn’t work too well in there (I also live in a bit of a backwater when it comes to mobile reception coverage) so couldn’t do as much looking and planning as I had wanted but I still found some items that I brought home and checked immediately to assure my ‘Syn Free’ nose was still working well!
Raspberry Skyr Yogurt – Syn FREE
I haven’t previously had any of the Skyr yogurts so wasn’t expecting the thickness of it but it didn’t deter me! It tastes good and once you ‘get over’ the consistency, it’s all good! I have since had it on its own and with Bananas for breakfast and it will most definitely become a regular on my shopping list!
Milbona Fat Free Yogurts (Strawberry & Vanilla and Chocolate Sprinkles) – Syn FREE
I happened to see these and bought a couple in the hope they would be as good (and as Syn FREE) as Muller Yogurts, and I wasn’t disappointed! I have so far had the Strawberry as desert one lunchtime and it was delicious – easily as tasty as Muller and a little cheaper too! I plan to use the Vanilla with Chocolate Sprinkles one in an ‘Overnight Oats’ creation shortly and will report back later!
Freeway Bitter Lemon (Low Calorie) – Syn FREE
I have always loved a bitter lemon, especially when mixed with Orange Juice to make a St Clements – so refreshing in the summer with a load of ice on a hot day! I was pretty sure that this was going to be Syn FREE as it was low calorie but I checked all the same! I have actually used it as a way to make my OJ in the morning go further; I have OJ every morning but 100ml is 2.5 Syns, which isn’t terrible, but 100ml is much less than I usually have and I don’t want to use such a huge chunk of Syns so early in the day so now I have 1 portion of OJ and top it up with this Bitter Lemon, YUM!
So that’s it for now, but I plan to do a bit of a search and download for Lidl branded foods and go for a good look at some point soon to find what yummy things they have for me to take advantage of!
Have you found anything at Lidl I should try?!
