    Well I'm off to give blood this afternoon and I always feel dizzy and weak afterwards. I usually help my self to the custard creams on offer. Just wondering if anyone can suggest a better option?Thanks

    How about a couple of go ahead biscuits and a cuppa?

    Well done for giving blood, its something I would like to do, but unfortunately am unable to as I am Anemic:rolleyes:

    Hmmm I wonder how much blood weighs, you never know you may lose a pound:D

    Or banana AND cereal bar? And maybe a yogurt? I've had the shakes before and it's an awful feeling. Well done for donating blood!

    At 3.5syns each you couldn't force me to eat custard creams. I mean they're nice, but not nice enough to sacrifice that many syns!

    I'd have a banana, some yog and maybe a HExB cereal bar.

    When I donated I ate a banana and alpen light afterwards. Felt fine.

    Don't bank on the fact you will loose extra weight though! I managed to gain the week after my donation and I hadn't changed anything apart from giving blood! A worthwhile reason for a gain though in my book :)

    Thanks for all the advice. I took an Alpen light with me and had a banana when I got home. Not feeling too bad.
