One of my favourite things before I began Slimming World, I have to admit was Macdonalds until I found out a Big Mac will set you back about 25 Syns (nearly double your daily allowance) ooops not the sort of thing you want to be eating really although they taste soo good 🙂
So I began looking for healthier alternatives and I came across a little recipe in a Facebook group called Big Mac in a Bowl. I was like really?? I must try this and I can tell you I was not disappointed. It really does taste and smell like the real thing minus the bread and is a must try for anyone who loves junk food. The only thing you need to Syn is the thousand island dressing which is fantastic so go on give Big Mac in a Bowl a try
