    Hello everyone!

    I am a newbie to this board, although I have done SW before (a few years ago) and have been stuck out in the wilderness (WW!!!) for a while now.

    I didn't find I was getting enough support from my WW group and can't afford to join SW at the moment, so I am trying to go it alone and will be doing EE as much as possible - it sounds great!

    I've got a lot to lose but am feeling positive and am just about to make a shopping list for the week to get started.

    My question is; what are your staple SW items that you couldn't live without?

    I seem to remember last time I did this that crab sticks between meals really helped so they will definitely be going on my list!

    I look forward to hearing from you all - nice to meet you! :D

    hiya ! :D
    i am also a newbie and in a similar possition! I am going to my 1st official meeting tommorow though so I can post any useful info I get from that to help you when I get back?
    I think from what I'be read these things are pretty popular:
    fry light, chopped tomoatoes, potatoes, mullerlight, extra lght mayo, chicken, mince, quorn sausages, chillies
    And also if you like Indian food, tandori spice mix is amazing on chicken with rice (free and v. tasty!)
    My friend makes crisps out of lasagna sheets so I'm going to try that later aswell as they would be a good little snack to keep hunger at bay!
    Good luck !
    (I'll post some more info tommorow after meeting :) )

    I ate so many crab sticks in my first few weeks I can't stand the thought of them anymore!

    I would say plenty of Fruit and Veg is essential, so you have it there for you 1/3 superfree.

    I find real good staples are Butternut Squash, Sweet Potatoes, Baking Potatoes, Pasta, Tuna, Baked Beans and Low Fat cheese are all things I couldn't live without!

    I'm sure there's loads more though that I can' think of right now!

    Welcome :D

    At the moment I'm loving alpen light choc and fudge bars. 2=1HeB

    Chicken wrapped in bacon stuffed with laughing cow triangles and garlic and onion. Drool!

    Spicy risotto - love the stodgy stickiness of this.

    SIN FREE CHIPS:D

    In fact just about everything, I've discovered I rather like cooking and I'm going to try a recipe for a roulade (sp?) my mum's just given me. Only 1/2 sin for the whole thing!

    Really enjoy your food and you won't feel like you're missing out. I've discovered alot of things I'd never have thought I'd like since joining SW.

    I eat a massive variety of food, as SW allows this, but the things that I seem to buy without fail every week (despite the obvious fruit, veg and meat) are:

    Eggs
    Laughing cow light triangles (5 for HEX A)
    Ryvita sesame crispbreads (4 for HEX B)
    Mugshots
    Tesco canned stewed steak
    ADSA canned chick pea dhal
    Creme eggs (8.5 syns)
    cous cous
    chick peas (and all other canned pulses)
    Frylight
    Kellogs Hi Fibre bars (1 HEXB and have replaced my alpen light addiction)


    If you are new to this you will also find a set of kitchen scales and measuring spoons invaluable

    All great suggestions everyone - would just say that corned beef needs to be synned now - I think a while ago it used to be free, but now it should be synned xxx

    I just finished eating it and it was gorgeous! My children didn't even notice it wasn't filled with cream. :D

    4 eggs
    2 tubs quark
    6 tbsp sweetener
    1 tsp vanilla essence
    1 tsp baking powder
    1 muller light
    fruit

    separate eggs

    In 1 bowl whisk the yolks with 1/2 tub quark, 4 tbsp sweetner, vanilla and the baking powder.

    In another bowl whisk the whites til they form peaks. Whisk half the yolk mixture with whites and then fold in the other half.

    Pour into a swiss roll type tin lined with parchment so it doesn't stick.

    Bake for 15 mins at 190/gas mark 5

    Allow to cool completely.

    Mix the remaining quark with muller light and 2 tbsp sweetner(you may prefer a little more sweetener), spread this over the cake and top with fruit. I used half tub of tesco frozen berries. Roll it up.

    Feeds 4 quite easily. Could be made adding a highlight for chocolate and dusting with icing sugar.

    Enjoy
