Your food choices look good for today Debs - make sure you have your syns though! Try not to go below 5 a day and try to have 10-15 as then, when and if you hit a plateau, you have something to cut down on.

Hi Huney! I'd say that you're getting your head round it all nicely! Lots of different things. I find it hard sometimes with the healthy B's but you could always use a tablespn of EV olive oil to make it up. Those quorn burgers sound quite good! Yes I'd have them for breakfast! If I wasn't out at work I'd have a cooked breakfast most days, tho I sneak in a couple of omelettes. What is the texture of the QB's like? Thats what puts me off the sausages! And good girl for spreading out your syns! I tend to bank mine and I'm sure I'd lose faster if I didn't!
Thanks for that Judi, I really appreciate any feedback at all, it is nice to know what Im doing isnt too bad.
The burgers arent actually too bad. I prefer the texture of the regular Quorn burgers, the frozen ones, just plain.... but the ones with the sweet red onion are not too bad at all....they would be lovely in a roll with salad...
I really love the sausages you see, but I got the Quorn cocktail sausages last week and I couldnt stomach them at all.... :9529:
