Our Favourite Slimming Essentials…

We all have our favourite go to snacks and treats and low calorie foods but I thought I would share our favourites below…

Please note that some links are affiliate links which means we may get a small percentage from the sale, this doesn’t cost you anything extra when you order but every purchase helps us to maintain this website plus a little goes in a pot and the end of every year around Christmas we make hampers and donate to food banks and shelters.

TRKG skinny syrups

We use syrups from www.trkg.co.uk they are calorie free, sugar free, diabetic friendly, gluten free, vegan friendly and come in a wide range of flavours. We also have a code to share: Hickmans15 will get 15% off your order, this code also works alongside the buy 4 get the 5th bottle free, simply add your bottles to your basket, enter the code at the checkout and the code will be applied.

We use these syrups in a wide range of things from our coffee, yogurt/quark, cakes and bakes, porridge, cocktails, lemonade, soda and much more. A little goes a long way so these bottles will last you a long while.

Skinny whips

We love these bars, you can find them in most B&M or Home Bargains stores but as we live in the middle of nowhere we don’t have any of those shops local to us so I order a bundle from here we get 20 boxes of 4 different flavours, mint, strawberry, toffee and double chocolate. At just 99cal per bar these are an ideal little snack for a sweet tooth.


We have used SpiceNTice for a while now, their kits and rubs have all the spices you need all included in one kit so we don’t need to rummage through the spice cupboard for lots of different ones. Their spice kits and rubs are all Slimming Club friendly (Slimming World, Weight Watchers, Calorie counting etc). For 10% off your order you can use our code HICKMAN10 at the checkout. We highly recommend the “Slimming Favourites” bundle to get you started. Each of their kits have ingredients and a recipe card attached which are really easy to follow, PLUS you don’t have to just stick to those recipes either, you will find lots of recipes throughout our blog and social media channels using these spices so have a good rummage round and find something you will love.

Flower & White Meringues

We love these meringues, there are lots of different flavours and all are under 100cals per bar. You can get bars and bags of little ones too, however the bars are safer as once you open a bag you will want to eat the lot.

Our favourites are the lemon, salted caramel and hazelnut praline although the strawberry & cream and chocolate ones are also amazing but they are not always available on Amazon and have to be ordered direct from Flower & White themselves.
