As much frozen veg as you can get - Onions, broccoli, cauliflower, peas, sweetcorn (I save a fortune by buying frozen instead of fresh)
Pasta - Tons of the stuff
Baked Beans
Mushy Peas
Tinned Tomatoes
Reduced Fat Cheese
Herbs & Spices

This is pretty much my staple shopping list. Plenty of meals can be whipped up with this. The joy of green is potatoes and pasta. So much can be done with them and they're relatively cheap!

ur a wee star :D What is the carbonara like? I was gonna make it this weekend and use honey roast ham for a bit of a smoky taste or maybe just bacon :D


will hit target this time
haven't made it in a while but it's always lush and my OH can never tell it's a slimming world recipe ;)

i tend to use a dollop of ff fromage frais, an egg, some parmeson and seasoning.. just keep adding until it's fairly runny, then i cook spaghetti and drain it, before putting it into a frying pan and pouring the sauce over it (on a low heat otherwise it curdles, have had this experience - not nice) with the quorn or ham or whatever meat you're using..

so yummy and only a couple of syns depending on how much parmesan you decide to use :D

ooops forget to add...

keep stirring the sauce until it starts to 'stick' to the spaghetti in little bits.. does that make sense? ahhh it does to me haha :)

sounds yum..i seen recipe usin quark have u tried this?


will hit target this time
no not tried the quark one.. the fromage frais always worked well for me so i didn't see any point in changing it :) think you use the quark in more or less the same way, with eggs and parmesan etc.. had a bad experience with a quark 'cheesecake' (i say 'cheesecake' as my dad commented it was more like blancmange! haha) think that put me off abit hehe ;)

Yeah it probably did hehe gonna attempt it and see what happens!lol
My Green shopping favourites are: Mugshots (ususally on offer for 5 for £2 at Asda), own brand pasta (Sainsburys/Tescos do a 500g bag of penne for 9p!), passata & fat free natural yogurt (for pasta bakes), batchelors rice are really nice too & its worht checking out Tescos Meat Free range (usually 2 for £3)
