    Hi Mins :)

    As I posted on my Food Diary I am trying to kickstart my weightloss again so am mixing things up and trying different things for breakfast each day instead of my trusty WW bread toasted!! :p

    I have also decided to try & reduce the amount of bread/pasta/potatoes I eat so made a job lot of SW Coleslaw last night and have just had some of it and 42g Mozzarella (HEA) on a baked sweet potato and it was absolutely gorgeous & I would thoroughly recommend it!!

    Hiya,

    If you use Fat Free Natural Yoghurt (like 0% Total or similar) the only syns would be 0.5 for the tablespoon of Extra Light Mayo!

    I was reading recipes on here last week and made loads of coleslaw this weekend - I love it with everything but especially baked potato. Baked sweet potato sounds even better. Thanks for the tip.

    Sorry to sound stupid, but which cabbage do you need for making coleslaw? My only experience of making coleslaw was in school and it was vile! :(

    Just white cabbage. Asda do a bag with coleslaw veg already prepared, it comes with a sachet of dressing which I just throw away. Mind you it was last summer I last bought it, but I assume they still do it.

    there's a Smart Price one with no dressing sachet - I get that one.

    I use 2% greek yoghurt for the creaminess plus sweetner. One bag makes a good 4 portions, so practically syn free.
