Slimming World Speed Foods List

We can all lose weight through Slimming World but you have to incorporate speed food to your diet to get a better weight loss. Speed food is even lower in calories than other fruit and veg and they are also full of the goodness you need in your diet. When I started Slimming World, I barely ate fruit and veg but now we eat it in a variety of different ways. I struggle to remember which foods are under the speed category when I go shopping, so I have made a list of them for you to bookmark on your phone and look up when you're out shopping. You can make some excellent speed meals like Chinese stir fry or add a salad to your jacket potato. Make casseroles with chicken, beef, lamb or pork and really bulk it out with vegetables. Remember you can get speed veg in a variety of ways, fresh, frozen or canned. And if you cook fruit, it releases sugar and therefore doesn't become a free speed food any more but instead is healthy B option. Make sure you have at least a 1/3 plate of vegetables with your meal.
So what comes under the speed food umbrella?
