    As you may know I'm on week 3 of refeed, and have just been gobsmacked in Tesco's at the price of fish. I spotted a nice bit of smoked haddock and asked how much it was........£5.75p.......blooming eck!!:eek::eek::eek: I told her to cut it in half. My OH replied 'why don't you go back on the diet, it was sooo much cheaper.' I can't believe how much this healthy eating lark can be; but I suppose it's a small price to pay for remaining slim. Just thought I'd share.. Good luck to everyone with their weigh - ins, happy slimming. xx;)

    Can you not go to any of those fish markets? They are usually cheaper when you buy a few and they are fresher.

    Bury market is the place to go for fish (no pun intended) The main market is open Weds, Fri, Sat but the fish and meat market is open Monday - Saturday, you can buy a whole salmon for £6.00 and the will clean it, head and tail it and fillet it all for you - trout is £1.00 each etc. Chicken breasts are about £5.00 for 8:D

    I'm sure Tracy J will agree - and all other Buryites:D
