    Hi, I don't use any to be honest. If I have bread it is only ever as toast, then I'll have baked beans or a poached egg on toast.

    What do you use it on? If it is for sandwiches, try making a syn free dip (with natural yogurt) or something to sog it down a bit. I prefer to save my syns for chocolate. Hehe. x

    My consultant suggests using laughing cow light instead of marg/spread and you can count this as a healthy extra A choice. I sometimes use St Ivel Gold Extra light which works out quite low in syns.

    I don't use any myself either but ....

    Flora extra light is half a syn per teaspoon or 2.5 syns per 28g

    Flora diet is half a syn per teaspoon or 3 syns per 28g

    Flora Pro-Active extra light is the same as Flora Diet

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks for that Topper, I never thought of doing that. Heres me wasting 3 sins a day on a triny scraping of marge when I can have a thick layer of laughing cow light!

    Personally, I haven't used any low fat spread on my bread since I started. I've recently (this week) rediscovered Dairylea light! You can have 3 chunky triangles for 1 HEA. I had it on Ryvita (which I was dreading - I thought it might be like eating cardboard) and I sooooo enjoyed it! I'm going to try them on a red day with some ham on top too!

    not planning on using very often, before SW didn't really anyway but should i want to make a sauce or something it's good to know what is the best value for syns. think i'll give the flora extra light a go. thanks ladies!

    i had thought about making the rice pudding that steph put up, i might try making without fat and see how that works out...
