I thought I was being very clever and made crisps using potatoes - is sliced em thin with a veg peeler then baked them til crisp with frylight and salt, and I was told THIS was a misuse of free food :copon: just made me laugh too much - imagine, making crisps from potatoes :confused::confused:

who would have thunk it!! :D

is that how you make them then? i suppose it might be the amount of oil per weeny slice of potato as we'd usually use the same amount of oil on an entire potato...

are there any official sw crisps?

Q,
when you say.... That free foods used for something else have to be synned...does this mean if i use potatos to make what i thought was syn free crips using the microwave crisp maker....theyre not??

A,
No they're not syn-free. However, syn them and they're only 3½ syns for 28gms which should make quite a few crisps (far fewer than a bag of crisps).
I'm a big believer in moderation in all things, so a few of anything like this is not going to have much effect on your weight, it's when you get to making loads of them and eating them in preference to 'proper' food that the problems begin.

The person who answered this question is a slimming world consultant on another forum.


Our consultant said, that if you eat them and still lose weight keep eating them, but if you eat them and your weight loss slows down or STops, it may be time to stop eating them, if that makes sense.....

do you use any oil to make them with a crisp maker. becuase if you don't i would say that was free... although dried fruit isn't free as it doesn't fill you up as much and you are doing the same with the potato... maybe that's why...
