    hi again
    in a post last week someone mentioned using pudding rice as an alternative breakfast , does anyone know how i would do this as it sounds like a really good idea... i guess i would have to cook it the day before though due to it taking 2 hours to cook .
    any help much appreciated

    I was me :) the pudding rice I have from sainsburys only takes about 20 mins to cook though. I just boil half a cup with splenda if I'm having it for breakfast, a tsp of Hartley Best jam is only 1 syn or if you let it cool slightly and stir in a muller light that works well too x

    Are you looking at rice pudding? That is synned but because of the cream / milk and sugar not the rice content x

    thanks Littlebottle, is your sainsburys pudding rice a quick cook one then? or do they all boil in 20 minutes if done in a pan rather than in the oven? Do you boil it in water? I cant wait to try it? Do you have good weight losses with it?

    I've just checked my packet and the recipe for rice pudding in the oven says 2 hours - it doesn't take that long in a pan so any pudding rice should be the same I would think.
    I don't have it all the time, but as I've generally had it as a meal rather than a dessert it's never hurt my losses - if anything it stops me getting hungry until lunch and the quantity I have wouldn't be higher in calories than having a cooked breakfast or 2 slices of toast. I've been ok with it, my Mom has it as a dessert and limits that as it's in addition to meals x

    Hi
    Ive just made some of this for my breakfast and it was lovely , i boiled 2 oz in water for about 20-30 minutes, then i had to sieve it as there was still a bit of water left, then i added a banana and custard mullerlight, and a teaspoon of nutella, it was gorgeous!, but i think i made too much as i had to leave a bit , might only do 1oz next time.
    Im wracking my brain now thinking of other 'flavours' i could make !LOL
