    Hi all,

    I thought for an idea we could post our standard shopping lists on here, as I am new and wandering what to buy. I thought it might be helpful to see what other ww members buy.

    I'm fairly new to WW too so I don't have a definitive list yet, but here are my favourite discoveries in the last couple of weeks:

    Warburtons square wraps - 4pp each
    Warburtons sandwich thins - 3pp each
    Caramac ice-cream bars - 3pp each
    Wispa ice-cream bars - 3pp each
    Butterkist toffee popcorn - 3pp for 25g bag from multipack
    Velvet Crunch (bit like Snack a Jacks, but better!) - 2pp per bag

    That lot satisfies my snack/sweet/carb cravings and I also make sure I buy tons of butternut squash. It's one of my favourite vegetables - tastes yummy, is very filling and SO versatile! I blitz it down to make thick and creamy soups, mash it with a little butter and black pepper, roast it in chunks or like chips, use it as the main ingredient in curries and risotto...

    I got to have crisps, velvet crunch salt and vinegar are lovely. Although when skint, Tesco value 12 pack of snacks are either 2 or 3pp -58p. Milky ways and fudges - POP these in the freezer to make them last longer. Warby wraps and discovery wholemeal wraps (3pp for one,7pp for two).
    Frozen veg - stir fry and normal.
    Laughing cow light cheese is another staple - livens up a sarnie!

    omg, wispa icecream bars at 3pp - i almost melted with glee, but just checked the nutritional info on their website and they come out at 5pp each :( sad face :(
    mini milks at 1pp each are good for cravings when your low on points.

    Nope, definitely 3pp. I calculated it from the packaging but have just double checked it on the website. The values they give are for the 80ml bars you might buy individually from an ice-cream man or corner shop, but the multipack bars are only 52ml and work out at 3pp :)

    And here's the calculation on the official WW calculator app.

    Mini Babybel Lights are 1pp each and actually go quite far if you can manage to grate one without taking the ends of your fingers off!

    I always buy any kind of squash when it's in season, like to bake or roast it. Zero points. Also baby carrots, great snack.

    Only this week I bought some 0% fat greek yogurt,,, usually this ain't my sorta fing, but I added some articificial sweetener n it's lush on any puddin type thing, n no pp as long as ya don't av toooooo much yog.

    Bns... I am soooo a fan. I've gotta say before WW I'd never had it's or even considered having it! It is a weird veg, but as people say it is v v v versatile....

    Umm.... I'm lovin smoothies and frozen fruit t make ice creams... The list is on n on...

    I reckon as long as ya willin to cook a bit n experiment u'll find some wkd meals..... Jus don't forget to post any new recipes :)
