    I would say buy some low fat fromage frais or nat yog or quark, things that we all depend on to make our sauces extra delicious

    It is hard to say some of them are very high in syns. I would possibly try and use as many a poss before you start.

    Or check out the syn threads to see if the syns for them are on there. When you join you will have access to sw online and be able to find the syns.

    i proberly wouldnt risk shopping till youv had your meeting and youv planned what you fancy! its very easy to fall off track if you havnt got everything in or planned ahead.. use your ww meals for now, get what you need to last till wed, and then go wed aft/eve or thurs morn xxx

    I agree, I'd get just what you need and then go again after WI - thats mainly because there are lots of things that you may like or not like, and things that people may suggest that you'd have not thought of if you stay to class etc.
    I never use Quark personally, or Quorn for anything. Just my tastes, and I find other things to have instead :)
