    Hi everyone

    I have started WW again today (1st weigh in since feb and I weigh more now than when i started!!!)

    I need to do an internet shop and i wondered if i could pick your brain for your staple low points foods that you couldn't do without in the week?

    It's not recipe ideas i need so much as low pint snackable food (my colleague swears by pink and white wafers at 0.5 points each and Quorn sausages 1 point each.)

    Breakfast, lunch and dinner seems so far apart so what low point foods do you all snack on?

    Humus and couscous for me. Breadsticks are low and great with humus. Satsumas is another.

    Hi. I snack on celery dipped in houmous, low cal salsa, laughing cow soft cheese only half a point per triangle .
    Monster munch from a multipack only 1.5 points.
    And i make a batch of 0 point tomato soup and a batch of cauliflower and brocolli soup and freeze them in seperate containers, great for filling up on and getting your veg intake.
