    Sainsburys cream crackers are 2.5syns each which is a lot if you're having about 4 (which I would), would you put cottage cheese on toast (hexb), can't think of anything else as I like to use my syns on wine & chocs & try not to use them on food:rolleyes:

    Hmm..So if i have toast (wholemeal bread) as a HEx b, i will not count it as syns? (kinda new on SW :p sorry)
     
  5. I always think that cottage cheese needs something crisp to go with it, so I separate a head of chicory into individual leaves, and put it on top of each leaf. Or romaine lettuce, or little gem lettuce. But chicory is crunchier.

    Yes that's correct, 60grms of wholemeal bread is a hexb or you could syn it if you wanted to use your hexb on something else;)

    Try cottage cheese with thai red curry paste ( 1 level tbsp 1 syn . Asda) and have celery with that , so so good - or any other spice. I love cottage cheese and celery :)

    In the Grab and Go HE B section there's the option of having one Weetabix (maybe add a banana?) and 3 Ryvita wholegrain crackerbreads (not as 'cardboardy' as normal Ryvita) which you can have with your cottage cheese. x

    That must be an old book as the Ryvita wholegrain are no longer hexb:( shame as I loved these with tuna.

    What about ryvita crackerbread, which are 1 syn each and are in a yellow box? Sold alongside 'normal' ryvitas. I had two today with some low low cheese spread. Gave me the low syn cheese crunch I wanted.

    Oh, I wonder if they've gone the same way as the Alpen light bars then and recently changed their recipe? x

    Doh, sorry I've been silly, the page from the book really helped me, it's the wholegrain which is no longer a hexb not multigrain just mixing my wholes with multis :rolleyes::D:rolleyes::D:rolleyes::D:rolleyes::D

    Some people use ham, roll up some cottage cheese in it a Nd much...then it's unlimited! Add some veggies (tomatoes, cucumber slices, grated carrot, gherkins) and you've got you some super free :) I also use cottage cheese as a salad dressing type thing. Or cooked chicken breast and slice it up that would act like a cracker. :)
