    Hello wise MiniMins :)

    This weekend I'm hosting a girly cocktail and slumber party at my house. Potentially this could be a syn minefield so I'm wondering if anybody knew of any cocktails (alcoholic naturally) that are'nt that high in syns. I think most fruit juices are pretty synful, so I'm guessing I'd mostly be relgated to mixing with diet soft drinks.

    Unsure also if we're ordering takeaway or cooking. What's the best thing to order from a chinese/indian place? And any ideas for nibbles/snacks/sweet treats?

    I had a 3lb easter gain this week (totally worth it mind you :p) so looking to stay as much as the straight and narrow as I can lol.

    Thanks xxx

    if i were you i'd prepare food to take with you, make the paprika potato wedges and chicken skewers etc, so you still feel like you're haivng fun! if you're eating chinese stick to plain boiled rice and something like chicken and mushrooms.

    as for drinks, try and stick to a white spirit with a syn free mixer (sprite zero or coke zero) i bet you'll still enjoy yourself and stay on plan! enjoy!

    the only fruit juices which are free is lemon and lime, if you want something fruity why not try adding sugar free cordial to lemonade and try sticking to vodka. i also like gin and tonic which is 2.5syns for a 2.5ml measure with slimline tonic water
