    Spain free and low syn foods.

    I thought I would start the list for Spain. I hope the other folks here add to it.


    Free Yogurt..........Mercadona's own brand La Pasteleria. Delicious flavours.
    Lidl............. Sesame Seed Crisp Breads....free as an HEXB.


    All the Iceland products that are free in the U.K. are also free here as they are imported and not produced for the Spanish Market.

    Being on this diet is like being on a wagon that goes at speed then slows down, but it may even stop or go in reverse for a short time, so dont get off the wagon! If you get off, get thrown off, or lose your place, run after it! If that doesn't work, get the next immediate wagon. Fight to stay on the wagon it will take you to your destination

    Brilliant idea. I am glad about the Lidl crispbreads as I like them. Will get some of those Yoghurts too as I have been buying Activa fat free and they are not cheap!!.
    Im afraid I don't know any more as only been on for a week so just been sticking to fresh meat and fruit and veg or the English shops. Iceland should be here in April they say...but being Spain, what year I don't know!

    This is super handy, my OH's parents have a house in Torrevieja and it'll help when we go out and stay there.

    Not that I am doing that any time soon but never mind!

    Can anyone living in Spain tell me what the equivalent to framage frais is here. That might sound stupid, but I can only find queso fresco which is more like quark to me!

    I tend to shop in Mercadona and Consum

    Thanks
    Sue

    0% Fat Fromage Frei is sold in Mercadona.

    Glad to see so many people here in Spain.

    Nicki, you do not need any Spanish to work in Iceland. Look on the website OVERSEAS.ES and I think you will find a job application form.

    Cheers everyone.

    No, they are free. I posted the ingredients on here and some of the clever and helpful ladies worked it out for me. I eat at least 2 a day. The the caramelised apple pie one is wicked !!!

    Mercadona also do a sugar free jam. I will look at it tomorrow and the syn value is so low it is hardly worth counting.

    Iceland's sliced lamb in mint gravy is another free one and soooooo good. I think I have posted that before somewhere.

    If you want any foods or their ingredients translating just post it here and I will be only too happy to help.

    Off to mercadona tomorrow for some of those yoghurt's They sound yummy, never had them before. Also the jam would be good to know as I miss that at the moment. I will have a look around to see what I can see that might be no or low syns and post them here to see if we can work it out

    Thanks for the Mexican rice - I've been counting them as free on Green

    But fillymum is wrong - the lemon tart yoghurt rocks the socks off the caramelized apple And I'm glad I'm not the only one digging into two a day. Good call on the Lidl "ryvita" too. It goes a little soggy if you leave quark on it too long, but that isn't a problem I have very often as I scoff it down.

    My local mercadona doesn't do fromage frais, but the superstore Alcampo does - and a strawberry Quark too.

    Hi Harrie. Great to see you here. I wondered how long it would be before you "found" us.

    I haven't seen an Alcampo Supermarket in this part of Spain but will look on their website to see if there is one.

    Thanks for the info on the Strawberry Quark. I wonder does Aldi do it ??
