Hi there, I started SW just over a week ago, I managed to loose 4lb in my 1st week (yipeeeee) I am just wondering if some of you could point my in the right direction for items to have in my cupboards. I have fruit, yoghurt, changed sugar for sweetex, butter for low fat and the same for cheese. Any help in this direction would be appreciated.
Thanks

I always have cans of beans (kidney, pinto, red beans etc) and tomatoes in my cupboards so that I can whip up a chili in no time. It's one of my staple meals. Pasta and Laughing Cow Light Cheese Triangles, frozen veggies (green beans, sweetcorn, peas etc) and frozen fruits (blueberries). I'm mostly happy to plan my meals but there are occasions when I'm just hungry and need something quickly--my saviour so far has been making sure that I have something that can be on my plate within about 10 minutes--either a portion of homemade chili/soup/etc (that I've made and frozen in advance) or a bowl of pasta with frozen veggies whizzed through it and Laughing Cow triangles melted on top.

I love pickled gherkins, they are free and go lovely with quark or cottage cheese.

Well done on your loss so far.
