Including a Slimming World meal planner template
If you’re thinking of trying Slimming World but are concerned it will double your family’s food bill, then think again.
Some people say menu planning is hard on Slimming World, so I’ve put together this easy to follow budget Slimming World weekly meal plan for you.
Cooking for the family can be expensive and it can also be hard to know how to use up all the food you have in your cupboards, so you’re not spending more.
Using a food diary or a food planner diary, can really help keep your food bill in check but also stops you from having to think about food. All. The. Time.
Meal planning on Slimming World doesn’t have to be hard. Using a Slimming World extra easy plan or just a simple food planner diary can also work as a shopping list or a place that you can keep all your favorite recipes for when you do a meal plan.
The beauty of Slimming World is that you get to eat family-friendly healthy food but are encouraged to cook it differently. So instead of deep-frying your fish, cover it in breadcrumbs and bake in the oven. Instead of using oil to cook your chips, use a low-calorie cooking spray or have a jacket potato.

Slimming World Weekly Plan
By making a few very small changes to your eating and how you think could help your family eat better but also cut down on your family spend as well.
I use the Slimming World Food Optimising book to keep my meals interesting.
You can print out my FREE Slimming world extra easy plan pdf, so you can easily meal plan for the week and use the plain copy to keep going, and take inspiration from the mega list below.
This Slimming World extra easy food diary all contains budget items, all brought at Aldi, but this can be done at any supermarket or discounter. To help, download my FREE Aldi food planner diary, which lists over 300 low-syn foods.
You should be able to do this shop for around £40, and still have leftover items in the freezer, like the frozen berries or the mixed vegetables, meaning that your bill will be less the following week.

Slimming World beginner meal ideas
If you are a beginner cook, looking for more Slimming World ideas or even family meals in general then have a look at Spicentice.
They send out packets of spices with easy to follow instructions so you can make a meal from scratch.
They are great to use if you are new to cooking from scratch or if you are looking to get your family eating new budget-friendly meals and have no clue where to start.
We tried them at the start of this year and loved them. We got stuck in a food rut and they helped by giving us ideas while keeping our food budget really low.
Most of their spices are Slimming World friendly and can be made for all kinds of diets.
We made the below meals using Spicentice. Try them for yourself here:
