There are those times when you just need a quick meal but you want it free off the bits that make you poorly, diet friendly and just generally healthy. Well Kirsty has it all, yes this lovely lady has created tasty meals that just do all that. She has also made nifty little meals for children too.
Yes Kirsty is a real woman, a Lancashire mum who you may have seen on Dragons Den in 2010. Her son had an allergy to nuts and an intolerance to gluten and dairy and so started on a crusade to produce dairy free ice cream. She then moved onto create ready meals that were healthy and free from gluten, wheat and dairy as we see in the supermarkets today.
I love to see a story like hers, it's so inspirational to see a fellow mum stand up and think, well there's nothing out there good enough so I'm going to make it myself and be successful. Well done Kirsty because these meals are so handy and with being on Slimming World they don't cost me too many syns so I can eat them without feeling guilty.
Just for a low down on the syn value if you are on Slimming World, they are as follows:
Malaysian Butternut Squash Curry with Brown Basmati Rice = 5.5
Pork & Herb Sausages with Sweet Potato Mash = 4.5
Chicken Tikka Masala with Brown Basmati Rice = 7
Beef Lasagne with a Rich Bolognese Sauce = 6.5
Thai Chilli Chicken with Rice Noodles = 6
Slow Cooked Beef with Celeriac Mash = 7
Spanish Chicken with Brown Basmati Rice = 9
Cottage Pie with Sweet Potato Mash = 5
Spicy Meatballs with Rainbow Vegetti = 7.5
Kirsty's Kids Kitchen range come in great manageable sized portions for children and classic meals such as sausage casserole, salmon and cod pie, cottage pie, chicken korma, Caribbean chicken, Moroccan chicken, beef lasagne, and lentil and butternut squash pie. Something for everyone and again keeping it healthy for the little ones too.
The meals are available at a selection of supermarkets, I buy mine from Morrisons or Sainsbury's but you can find out where to buy in your own local area by searching on the website at
There is all the information you need on the website and you can read all about Kirsty's story. Give these meals a try and see how you go. You can always leave a comment on here and let me know which is your favourite choice.
Thanks for reading and I will be back tomorrow for Autism Support Saturday.
Take care for now.......
