Hi, all sound good :) can I ask what magic porridge is..? X

Hi, it's porridge oats (hexB) mixed with a muller light yoghurt, any flavour, and frozen berries (I use frozen raspberries, Black Forest mix, cherries. Or you can use fresh fruit mixed into the oats just before you eat it) and left in the fridge over night for the oats to absorb the yoghurt. It's easy to make, satisfying and yummy.

The day started well but it ended up with me going completely off plan. We went to an all you can eat Chinese buffet restaurant. I stayed away from the egg fried rice, noodles, prawns deep fried in batter etc, but the chocolate fountain and the Eton mess I just could not resist :( Planning to make up for it over the next few days and keep the syns low to try and keep the damage to a minimum :)

Dinner - eat all you want Chinese buffet including some nice desserts
