    Minimins is so useful for support and advice and I was just thinking how there is stuff I wouldn't have known I don't think if it wasn't for minimins (despite the fact I pay membership and go to group etc)! I was wondering what other people have found invaluable from this site?

    For instance if it wasn't for minimins I wouldn't have known about magic porridge.....

    This is a misconception, if you don't have the scan bran you don't have to syn the oats but you can't swap the scan bran for anything else.

    If it wasn't for this site I wouldn't have known just how many misconceptions there are out there!!! Like above for example......

    I must say, this site is invaluable for support and I've made some wonderful virtual friends and the recipes people submit are superb.

    I love it :)

    I can pin it down to individual posters!!

    e.g. if it wasn't for Jaylou I wouldn't know about Highlights dark chocolate (I still remember the original post saying it was better than Starbucks!) and if it wasn't for StaceyUK (remember her?) I wouldn't know about Pagen rolls with chopped egg and bacon, and if it wasn't for FrugalFifer I would have never heard of the 'resist' list (make a list of everything you DIDN'T eat in a day and add up the syns- it always makes you feel better)

    Thanks to my minimins friends past and present!

    Paid the extortionate price for an online subscription with no support for a girl in the USA! I found this place in a desperate search for support. Amazing. And free! And wonderful supportive people.

    I boil the eggs, then put them in a bowl and mash 'em up- (with some light mayo if required) and snip up the bacon into it- hot or cold - either way it is ace

    And yes, Jaylou rocks my world too

    I wouldn't have known......

    To mix options sachets into no fat natural yoghurt makes the nicest chocolate cream dessert ever.

    That I had all this wonderful support open to me from people who genuinely care and want to help people they've never even met - love you guys.

    That I can look up the syn value for almost anything and get some awesome recipes.

    :) :) :)
