Are they all under 5g fat per 100g? I love garlic bread but didn't think I'd be able to find one with 5/100 or less. Would be great if the WW is :p

Yeah everything I bought was under 5g of fat per 100. The Weight Watchers Garlic Ciabatta bread is 4.0g per 100, Asda Good For you does one as well its called Petit Pain-Garlic and Herb thats only 2.7g per 100. You can find them both in the chill aisle at Asda where they sell the fresh pasta and soups.

Thanks for the list - thats fab!!! I shop at Asda too and the Dolmio pasta sauces etc are also in the 5/100 rule! They are brill for those quick meals! I will try the Garlic Ciabatta as we love them and the family have been banned from garlic bread as I cant have them LOL! Kraft Lite salad dressings are fab too!! The also fall into the 5/100 rule!!

For dinner today I had Asda Organics Spinich and Ricotta Tortellini with the Weight Watchers Pasta Sauce and Garlic Ciabatta Bread all under the 15g rule, it was so yummy and filling.

What I do is go on the Asda website and check out products, the majority of items have the nutritional value right on the website, I make a list before I go so it saves time I have to spend in the store, as well if you make a account with them you can add the items to the trolley and know how much your bill will be before you shop. I love it.

iv just made a curry for tea using Tesco light choices Korma sauce, and im sorry to say that it was awful. i used chicken breast,mushrooms and onions and the sauce,but non of the family liked it,
i used to use Pataks but it has too much fat so now i need to find another nice flavoured one.

I have bought a ww one but not tried it yet...might give it a whirl tomorrow and I'll let you know.
I thought the tesco one was quite wishy washy...not much flavour.

Am definitely going to try the garlic bread then, I guess my old habit of having an entire garlic baguette to myself will have to go though :D
