    I am not really experienced on the sw plan, but I have noticed, if you soak the oats overnight, they double in volume.
    I make an old sw recipe called Swiss Bircher, its when you soak the oats in milk, fat free yogurt overnight. In the morning, I chop my fruit apple, pear, strawberries.
    There is so much in my bowl, that it can take me 30 minutes to eat it. Lol
    I hope I am doing the plan right, and not messing up the energy density.
    If any of you more experienced sw people are here, can you let me know. Thanks

    I make mine with water in the micro and then stir in a fat free yoghurt and some fruit. It's yummy.

    I don't see why pre soaking them would affect their SW value, you should be okay. Do you eat it cold or cook it in the morning?

    I have it cold. It sounds disgusting, but it tastes lovely. I take it out of the fridge about 15 minutes before I eat it, to get it to room temperature.

    Oooh I really like the sound of this - so you put your yog in along with the milk to soak overnight? What type of yog are you using, plain or flavoured? Cheers, Jo x

    Scan bran is Scandinavian bran crispbread. You can buy it at meetings or in Holland and Barrett. Beware though, lots of people hate them! I really like them even though they're really chewy and not at all like ryvita (imagine instead a solid square piece of allbran-like material).

    We call this 'magic porridge around here' - there is a lengthy thread about it in the recipe sub-forum. Lots of people swear by it but I must admit it's not my cup of tea at all.

    They're crispbread type things. You can either get them from class or Holland and Barratt xx
