    I started sw whilst being off on holiday from work, but I start back this week. And my guarnteeed moment of weakness is when I stroll in from work at midnight, I'll have my dinner at work, about 5 so by the time I'm getting ready to leave; I will get those hunger pangs. Yogurt and fruit won't cut it as I need something warm and comforting to toddle off to bed with. Any suggestions?

    Thanks :)

    I love a bit of smash mixed with baked beans if I want something savoury, warm and filling. It tastes better than it sounds!

    Would a mugshot work for you?

    How about a bit toast (wholemeal, hexb) with banana on it, or cheese (hex a), lovely with a nice cup of tea :)

    Thanks everyone, will try some of these ideas. I find I'll plan something healthy to eat, but by midnight; i won't fancy it, or I'll have used up my syns. At worst case it's better to go over a little bit on the syns than to have a complete blow out!

    What about having some Slimming World Quiche Already made at home waiting for you that you could just heat up in the micro?

    Ooh yes, I sometime literally live off SW quiche, straight from the fridge. I tend to always include grated courgette and carrot in mine these days to make sure I get some veg! I know what you mean about wanting something warm and comforting though, and I must confess, instant mash has come to the rescue for me many a time. Often mix some garlic powder in, and if there are any leftovers in the fridge - beans, or broccoli, whatever is there. Just for a quick meal, while the kids and hubby are having stuff I don't have!

    How's about saving your HEXA and B and having weetabix with warm milk! I always find it's lovely on cold winter nights - lots of fibre too!

    Or, perhaps make a batch of syn free soup and have it in the fridge ready to poor into a bowl when you get in- a couple of minutes in the microwave whilst you're getting changed etc.

    I always save my hexB until just before bed and have two hifi rocky roads or a Special K chewy delight. I eat it upstairs so I know I won't be tempted to go and raid the fridge :)

    Loving all the great ideas. I was planning on saving my a and b and having some nice cheese on toast, but I ended up having too many cups of tea at work so had some lovely mini quiches with a cheeky sw doughnut- so I feel like I'm still getting a little treat for working hard :D

    Sw doughnut I'm intrigued ? X

    It's my fave treat atm. You get a whole grain bun and slice it down the middle of the bun, pull out the middle and put in a bit of jam or nutella. Spray the bun in fry light, roll it in granulated sweetener and pop it in the oven for 10 mins at 200 degrees, rotating half way through.
    I prefer cutting the bun vertically, as its more like a doughnut instead of a jam sandwich :). If you use the whole grain bun as hexb, then the only syns is the filling; the jam i use is only 1.5 syns per tablespoon so i get a big dollop :D. I original thread is on mini mins somewhere

    They sound gorgeous!!! Definitely will give them a whirl. I take it you mean wholemeal bun though as wholegrain would be syns???

    If you go to Sainsburys, they do packs of veg ready for soup (checked them all out and there is no oil or anything) so syn free. Just follow instructions and you have soup in 30 minutes. We normally make a batch and then keep some out for if we get peckish in the evening, not worth eating heavy before sleep!

    Also second Mugshots - nearly live off those things some weeks when I am really busy with work. Just watch out as they are not all free!
