    Just be warned that the 'muffins' don't exactly come out like a real muffin.... more like a gungy wobbly rubbery blob..... at least in my experience!

    I tried to make muffins and crisps a couple of times, in the end I decided it wasn't worth the bother, especially when you end up with something that makes you gag instead of a nice shake .

    I have to agree with pete, they're so much more filling as a shake/soup too.

    I agree LS, that's a big part of it too.
    I can honestly say that now, I wouldn't want to try and make a muffin, or crisps anyway, as I don't care about having those things anymore.

    But I understand how it could help in the beginning.
    I just know that when I heard "make a choc shake into a muffin" I thought it would come out like, well, a real choc muffin.

    To open the microwave door to a pasty coloured blob of what looked like rubber was disspointing, no where near as tasty as the choc shake, and pretty nasty to eat too.

    Perhaps I made it wrong though, over-cooked it or something?

    I agree too. I've never made anything. I thought I would as it sounded like they'd be lovely, but then I thought about what it is about my mindset that I want to change. I used to make a big thing about eating. I loved it and wanted lunch/dinner, etc to go on for as long as possible and would eat as much as I could! I also viewed food as a comfort/treat/celebration/etc, etc, and I really don't want to do that anymore. So for me the foodpacks I simply view as nutrition to keep me healthy and alive and only that, so I don't want to make anything with them. I obviously enjoy them and would only eat/drink the flavours I like, but they are just a means to an end for me.

    I know that making crisps, etc, keeps some people going though!

    Pesonally I upload them to

    ImageShack® - Image Hosting

    then copy the link they suggest you use (5th from the bottom of the page you get after uploading an image) and just copy and paste that link straight into a post or my signature.
