    Does anyone else Struggle to have the A everyday?

    Hi


    I am really struggling to have the HE a everyday.

    I don't take milk in drinks at all.

    Come bed time I realise I have not had a A and end up just eating 30g of cheese,or drinking a glass of milk even though I don't want it.

    Do I have to have it everyday?

    Just to echo what Jezzi said - it's not mandatory, but it is recommended and will only help your weight loss.

    I know you said you don't take milk in drinks, but what about making up an options hot chocolate with your milk? I do red / green days so get two A choices. If I realise I haven't had my second choice, quite often I'll heat up my milk in the microwave for 3(ish) minutes, and then stir it into an options hot chocolate sachet (2 Syns). It feels like a lovely treat - very indulgent!

    Hi

    Thanks Princess Stevie and Jezzi, I will try the alpro milk. I have tried the coconut milk that Tesco do, but it does not seem to taste of anything.

    I tend not to cook meals with cheese in as my hubby does not eat cheese at all, it make him ill. but once a week I do make a pasta and cheese dish for me and my munchkins, but have to cook him something else.

    I was feeling guilty if I did not have my A choice as I thought SW would not work right without it.

    Today I have 30g of cheese and an apple for a snack for this afternoon.

    If you tend to snack on cheese, BabyBels can be good! I keep a pack in the fridge - they're really handy for nibbling on. You can have 2 of the original BabyBel's for an A choice, or 3 of the Light variety. Just seems a bit more interesting than 30g cheddar lol

    Used to love Babybels but think a belled out on them when I used to do SW before and just can not face them LOL, I used to have 2 x original on pagan rolls. (dont think pagon rolls are a HE B any more though as I can not find them on the list )

    No, I don't think they are either hun. I remember our C mentioning it at group a little while ago.

    Another good way of using up your A choice is Laughing Cow Light / Extra Light Triangles. As they're not overly cheesy, I sometimes use them as an alternative to butter/spread. They're great in sandwiches, on a jacket potato, etc. Just adds a bit of moisture but without the Syns of butter. You can have 5 of the Light variety, or 6 of the Extra Light as an A choice!

    Just trying to think of as many different options for you as possible. I know it can be hard using them up if you don't really use milk/cheese.

    I love cheese and apple together! Especially on a salad - such a lovely flavour combo

    Hi

    Had not thought to put the cheese on my SW chips, that sounds a good idea.

    I dice fruit, mix in yogurt and some nuts have it for breakfast, or if I'm too rushed at breakfast I have in for pudding. Takes care of a and b, and it tastes good.

    for those about to chuck toys out of the pram, yes I measure the extras, no it's not tinned fruit, yes it is no fat yogurt. Take a break, ring em out, wash Your hands take a deep breath and come back calm!

    I don't understand where the A HE is either! Thought A was milk or cheese. Far free yogurt is free any way (depending on the make and flavour of course, I like Onkan yogurt, but it's not free )
