Slimming World Syns – Nandos

I bloody love a Nandos, who doesn’t!?

When I rejoined Slimming World I knew I would have to make many sacrifices, eating out regularly would be one of them.   When I did SW the last time around we exclusively only ever went to the Harvester as it had the salad bar and lots of chicken and steak choices. I never really considered checking out other restaurants as I thought the syns would be ridiculous. Oh how wrong I was!

I was browsing on Instagram and came across the page of @fopperholicslimmingworld. She posted a picture of herself eating Nandos and my mind was blown. Have I been missing out for all this time? I checked syns online and actually squealed, I squealed for Nandos!

I also had a side salad with this to get my much needed fix of speed food!

I have been a few times now and made SW friendly options. Don’t get me wrong, you can’t have a double chicken pineapple pitta with peri peri chips and coleslaw, however the other options are just as tasty and so much better for you! Additionally, Nando’s also has the best drinks dispenser EVER. You have hundreds of drinks to choose from and they all have a sugar free option! My favourite fizzy drink has always been Vanilla Coke, something I can’t enjoy on SW, so being able to enjoy a diet Vanilla Coke with my Nando’s is the cherry on the cake!

Here are the more SW friendly options:

Mains:

  • Nandos Corn on the Cob, without Butter (regular & large) – FREE
  • Nandos Side Salad – FREE
  • Nandos Spicy Rice (regular) – 2 syns
  • Nandos Spicy Rice (large) – 4.5 syns
  • Nandos Chicken Butterfly with Skin, Plain (per serving) – 3 syns
    • This is plain without any peri peri flavouring
  • Nandos Peri-Peri 1/4 Flame-Grilled Chicken Breast (per serving) – 3
  • Nandos Peri-Peri Salt (2 level tsp) – 1/2

Desert:

  • Fat Free Frozen Yogurt in Strawberry- 2 syns per serving
  • Fat Free Frozen Yogurt in Mango- 2 syns per serving
  • Fat Free Frozen Yogurt in Vanilla- 2 syns per serving
  • Fat Free Frozen Yogurt in Chocolate- 2.5 syns per serving

Now, I have to make it very clear that the Fat Free Frozen Yogurt doesn’t appear on syns online so the above is an educated guess. If you go onto the syns calculator, type in fat free yogurt as a free food and then add the nutritional values it brings these syns up.

*UPDATE* Nando’s have just got back to me and confirmed the nutritional value for the Fat Free Frozen Yogurt is for 100ml.

 

Sauces:

  • Nandos Garlic Peri-Peri Sauce (1 level tbsp) 1/2
  • Nandos Lemon & Herb Peri-Peri Sauce (1 level tbsp) 1 /2
  • Nandos Mango & Lime Peri-Peri Sauce (1 level tbsp) – 1
  • Nandos Wild Herb Peri-Peri Sauce (1 level tbsp) – 1/2
  • Nandos Mild Peri-Peri Sauce (1 level tbsp) – 1/2
  • Nandos Medium Peri-Peri Sauce (1 level tbsp) – 1/2
  • Nandos Hot Peri-Peri Sauce (1 level tbsp) – 1/2
  • Nandos Extra Hot Peri-Peri Sauce (1 level tbsp) 1/2
  • Nandos Perinaise, Mild (1 level tbsp) – 2.5

 

Marinades:

  • Nandos Garlic Pero-Peri Marinade (1 level tbsp) – 1/2
  • Nandos Lemon & Herb Peri-Peri Marinade (1 level tbsp) – 1/2
  • Nandos Medium Peri-Peri Marinade (1 level tbsp) – 1
