Essentials List

Hi there,

After a successful loss of a stone, somehow, through sheer naivity i think, managed to put all the weight and a couple of pounds more back on.

I am now at a point where I realise that things have GOT to change. I have done it before and can sooo do it again. My partner and I are trying for a baby and I want to have the body that will help!

Anyway, I am off shopping tonight and want to stock up on essentials to help me. I have been in bad habits for so long that I have forgotten what i need!

Can everyone help?

Shwartz packets are like Colmans.. you find them ins uper markets, they'r just packets of seasony like things and you can buy loads.. chilli con carni is my fave! .. shepards pie.. sweet and sour sauce.. chargrilled chicken pasta bake.. chicken tikka masala..spag bowl! theres all sorts! just means i make home cooked meals every day, that i can freeze and are as simple as can be with the packets!

Basically the packet it self are all 6 syns except the korma which is 9 :O but tastes like **** so dont bother anyways lol.. and you usually make between 3/5 servings, depending on what it is, so you devide the 6 syns between the servings.. usually the ingrediants you use with it is all free like .. the chicken in the curry and pasta bake.. or the extra lean mince ud use it chilli or shepards pie etc .. and i used the sweet and sour sauce one .. i make up chicken.. batchelors chinese rice (free) and make the sauce up and its like, 2 syns LOL

asda dont sell them but morrisons stock them .. i think tesco has a small range of them xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

i really do use these everyday!
