Pasta, rice, potatoes, beans, pulses, grains and veggies are all Free Foods – which means you can eat as much as you like, with no need to weigh, measure or count. You’ll also find many plant-based proteins on the Free Food list, including plain Quorn (vegan varieties), jackfruit and tofu.

Slimming World members have access to a colourful collection of vegan Slimming World recipes on the website – plus many more that can be easily adapted to suit a vegan diet.
