Everything you need for The Perfect Low Syn Christmas Dinner - amazing recipes for the whole family to dig into and enjoy on the special Festive day.
It's that time of year again and for most, it's a difficult period when it comes to food. Faced with so many delicious foods it can be hard to stay on plan.
You may have decided to give yourself the day off for Christmas and therefore are allowing yourself all the usual treats. But what if you want to stay on plan, it can be really hard to make a low syn version of all your yummy foods.
So thought it would be a great idea to share with you some of my healthier options for a delicious Christmas Dinner.
I think the best dish for starting off a Christmas Dinner is something like a light Soup and there are many to choose from in my Soup Section. Traditionally we usually have asparagus soup for our starter and there are two different version to choose from.
Another option is a light Seafood Cocktail Salad with some crispy lettuce.
You could just skip the starter altogether if you would rather just enjoy the Christmas Dinner.
It may be that you just add a few healthy options in with the not so healthier ones, or you may even decide to stay fully on plan. Either way, there are plenty of recipes for you to choose from for The Perfect Low Syn Christmas Dinner.
Firstly is the meat dish for your roast dinner, you could do a traditional Roast Turkey, as removing the skin will mean it is totally syn free. Or even allowing yourself a small amount of turkey with skin is just 2 syns per 4oz/115g. So it is totally okay to have that little bit if you choose.
But what if you really don't enjoy Turkey and would rather cook something else. I am one of those people who never really cooks turkey for Christmas, mainly because being a family of 4 living overseas, a big turkey can often be a waste for us, instead, I cook a chicken in the slow cooker or Instant Pot and we much prefer it like that. It means I don't have heaps of turkey leftover too, to try and utilize in other recipes.
and then you can't have a Christmas Dinner without some amazing side dishes to choose from and what a line up I have for you.
8. Maple Glazed Carrots - add some parsnips and green beans too.

How amazing does it all look? and all completely on plan.
