    As I was coming to the end of cd last time I really went off the soups, so this time only ordered a couple.
    However am on 4 packs a day and by having a bowl of soup each evening feel like am having an 'ordinary meal', plus finding the savoury a nice change from the sweet packs.
    Anyway (soz I'll finally get to the point) only got 2 soups left until see cdc next Thurs and just don't fancy idea of 4 sweet packs a day, am going shopping tomorrow so does anyone know of any cd friendly item eg Bovril that I could obtain from Tesco to substitute for my daily soup.
    Strange isn't it how we go through phases of products we like/dislike on this diet.

    Thank you

    Hi Mrs T,

    Some people seem to b having boullion which i believe is like the CD veg flavouring but a lot cheaper.

    me too !! Marigold Boullion ( will be in the stock cubes and gravy section) is the same as the cd veg flavouring , 1/2 a teaspoon in a mug of hot water is lush :)

    Gutted, my local Tesco suppossed superstore often doesn't stock products that real Tesco superstores do ,so surprise surprise no boullion in any shape or form.
    However Mr T(a low carb expert after a successful spell on Atkins 7 years ago) found me Baxter's Beef consomee....4.2g of carbs per can and 62 cals...not too bad as I will be using it as one of my 4 meals and hopefully will prevent me sickening myself on sweet packs during my soup drought (Mon-Thurs).
    However am determined to get my hands on this Boullion for a nice savoury drink, am I right in thinking it is a safe extra to the packs?

    Mrs T -- Calorie and carb wise it should be fine. Watch the salt levels.
