If you want your cheese and you’re following Slimming World then there is no need to worry because there are some fantastic options that you can have for relatively low Syns.
That is probably the reason why my mum has been on Slimming World for more than twenty years. She just loves cheese. Whether it is a cheese board full of hard cheeses or squirting Primula cheese into her mouth as she walks around the supermarket, she is just there and enjoying cheese at her leisure.
How Many Syns In Laughing Cow Cheese?
For Syns probably the most famous cheese is for Slimming World followers is the Laughing Cow. It is very similar to Dairylea and very low in Syns and calories. I also adore my Light Philedelphia and we often have about six tubs of it in our fridge for when we next fancy some cheese.
So for Syns in Laughing Cow you are looking at 2 Syns per square. However if you were to have the lighter versions then you would be talking even less Syns. The light variety is 1.5 Syns a triangle and the extra light works out at just 1 Syn a square.
If you’re out for dinner and someone has made a cheese board, then bring some extra light laughing cow with you and then you can have a LOT of cheese without it running into your wine Syns.
But that is not the only cheese that you should try that is low Syn. Here are a few other low Syn options:
- Mini Babybel Light = 2 Syns
- Mini Babybel = 3 Syns
- Boursin Light = 1.25 Syns
- Dairylea Bites = 3 Syns
I love the idea of the pre-packaged portions as you can then just grab them and go. I will often grab one and eat it in the car on the way somewhere when I have not had chance to make myself something to eat before I go.
