any comments/suggestions would be appreciated :)
Hey! I didn't want to read and run. I think you're doing very well and I've just seen your weight loss! Congratulations!

Just to confirm that Tayto's Velvet Crunch are indeed 4 syns for the pack. You mentioned struggling with lunch as you're driving lots. Why not try a flask (you can get ones with wide necks especially for eating food out of)

I tend to throw aload of veg together in stock with whatever spices/herbs I feel like and when they're all cooked blend and pop into tupperware tubs. I heat it up in the microwave in the morning and throw it in the flask and it stays lovely and hot all day.

Do you have access to a microwave, you can re-heat scrambled egg, pasta in sauces, cook extra for dinners and take them in the next day :)

I hope this helps!
only can get to a microwave in the morning, did speak to DH to see whether we could invent a microwave that could run from the outlet in the car, but he didn't think it would work LOL, bit like my idea for a refridgerated duvet cover - great for the summer!
Say, I looked at those wide necked flasks the other day but couldn't bring myself to buy one yet, still hoping for an Indian Summer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyway, back to todays food diary

Saturday 11th August

Breakfast - tomatos, mushroom, toast and two 'fried' eggs - set my up for the day :) bread was. wholemeal 800g medium slice - so I am guessing 1 slice as HEB and other slice as 4 syns

Lunch - Salad and chicken tikka chunks - all free :)

Snack - 1 little Galaxy cube, offered by a patient so I couldn't refuse! If 24.5g bar is 6.5 syns = 6 chunks, then I am counting this as 1 syn, please correct me if I am wrong, this was the nearest I could find on SW online.

Another snack - Walkers Baked crisps - sour cream and chive - satiated that crisp craving :D

Dinner - will be a mediterranean tray bake with lean lamb, tomato, courgette, passatta and onion/herbsl and potatoes.

Total - 10 syns
