THIS autumn, discount supermarket Aldi has launched a new low calorie and low fat slimming ready meal range, Slim Free.
The £1.99 ready meals come in five different varieties and are perfect for customers counting their calories and their pennies.
The meals are similar to the Slimming World ready meal range, but each meal is £1 cheaper, and some contains lightly less calories (Slimming World Tikka Masala is 405 calories for 500 grams. Aldi’s is 371 for the same amount.)
The Slim Free products were launched across Aldi stores nationwide on 26th September.
Each meal can be zapped quickly in the microwave or cooked in the oven and with a variety of dishes to choose from, customers can have a cheap and low-calorie meal every week-night.
