    Hi

    Is there any syn free snacks that I can comfort eat with?

    I get down from time to time and really feel the need to comfort eat. Usually if I get hungry I'll have some fruit, but right now I dont feel as though fruit will cut it. I want biscuits and cake, but obviously these are far too high in syns. I want something I can just pick up and eat.

    Thanks

    You could make yourself some SW friendly chips, have an Alpen Light either as HEXB or syns (can't remember how many though), or meringue with quark, sweenter & fruity or yoghurt & fruit, or ryvita crunch 2 = 1 hexb.

    What type of foods do you like to eat, what would you consider comfort foods. Give us an idea & I'm sure somebody can come up with a SW friendly version.

    biscuits mainly. Im ok now, but before all I really wanted was to have 4 or 5 biscuits with a hot chocolate. Im sure I'll feel like this again so would appreciate any ideas of subsitutes for biscuits.

    Thanks

    Im a lover of alpen lights (2 x hexB or 3 syns each) also the s.w hifi bars are gorgeous easpecially the ruby anniversary ones!! they are just like flapjacks!! :) (1 hexB or 6 syns ).

    also porridge (28g hexB or 5.5 syns) with some of your Hex A choice with 1 tsp bournville cocoa (1 syn) and sweetner is devine and a real comfort food... tastes just like chocolate pudding :)

    comfort food is my passion lol I also love s.w rice pudding..... there are loads of recipes and varietys on here ... :)
