Smile Eclairs - Iceland

Caro, talking about ice-cream ... I found Iceland's 24 Mini Eclairs (99p I think). Warning only buy when you have developed some discipline. It is 2.6g carbs/eclair and gives you the tiniest bite of choclate, fresh cream and a whiff of pastry.

I bought a packet months ago (for a visitor's desert - that's my excuse anyway! ) and one eclair is enough to satisfy the chocolate cravings.

Take care.

Hi

Here is something I found in Sainsburys which tastes great:

Spicy Fried Chicken (ready to eat)

Carbs per half pack 4.4g (half pack = 150 grams)
of which sugars less than 0.1
starch 4.4
Fat 24.9
saturates 3.5
monounsaturates 14.0
polyunsaturates 7.4
415 calories


This chicken was in the chilled section next to all the curries and chinese food and it tastes great.

Enjoy!

Thumbs up Pork Scrachings - KwikSave

My local KwikSave recently started selling pork scrachings 99p/packet. There is no nutritional information on the packet. They are on the cooked meats and deli counter.

Love the peculiar texture though. Crunchy and hard on the outside, soft and mushy on the inside! Taste awful as they are but drowned with plenty of spices quite edible.

They helped me cut down on nuts and got me out of a long stall.

Take Care.

Lightbulb

I just invested in a microwave omlette set from woolies at 1.49.

If any of you are like me i have a microwave at work but no cooker, its nice to cook something at work, plus omelettes are cheap and eggs etc last ages in the fridge too.

Thumbs up Chocolate Addicts

Sainsburys do a tin of Cocoa Powder (with NO added sugar). 70p a tin and only 10.5g carbs in the whole tin.

I had a few strawberries, cream and a teaspoon of Cocoa. I intended to add some sweetener in but after tasting it, I didn't need to - strawberries were really ripe and sweet enough.

Boy ! did I enjoy that treat!
Take care

Default Golden pork crunch

These are not the usual pork scratchings, but are puffed up - the way corn is puffed up to become popcorn. They're good if you miss crisps and crunchy food - they look like an oversized Quaver and taste pretty strong - good for using with spreads/dips.

I found them in Morrison's supermarket in Ipswich, 65p for a 35gm bag - which is quite big as they're pretty light. Per 100gms the carb count is 0.1gm - so a whole packet = one third of a tenth of a gram! What a carb bargain!

Default Salmon pate

M&S does yummy Scottish smoked salmon pate (1.29) with only 0.2g of carbs in 100g. I found it a real bargain as most of them at different supermarkets come around 4g. It's high in protein too (17g), which is handy for those on Protein Power plan.

Has anyone tried the Nutribread loaf? It says its for women and has linseed in it, but really tastes nice and much better than Burgen. Also only 4g of carbs per slice. I got it from Sainsburys a couple of times but only the big branches seem to stock it.

Cool

Hi there,

My fav is Lidl, it's soooo cheap on everyday stuff.

LIDL

In the fishy freezers I found a Fish & Broccoli bake (400g)
which is only 3g carb per 100g, half the box is sufficient on a nice bed of salad or green veggies.

SAINSBURYS

Yesterday I came home with one of those takeaway curry carrier bag packs for two. The Eastern Indian mix which had in it:

Chicken Jalfrezi - 6.8g carb per 1/2 serving
Bengali Mustard Chicken - 8.6g carb per 1/2 serving
Aubergine Masala - 9.5g carb per 1/2 serving
2 x flavoured rice (can't remember exactly what buy exotic) - didn't eat the rice so won't mention it

All for under 11 for two . I had just under the 1/2 serving as it was toooo much . Hubby had one of the rice boxes and finished the other one with the left overs the next day, that's how much there was!

OK I know it's fairly high in carbs, but if your carbs were low for the rest of the day, which mine were, without even trying, it was a nice weekend treat! and still at 31g of carb for the day!

Enjoy yourselves, there's loads out there to make our lives a little easier on those 'can't be bothered to cook' nights!

Hello

I just looked at

http://www.carblife.com./

and saw that they sell Splenda. You receive it by post within 5 business days of them receiving your order, which can be placed by phone, fax or email. 5 delivery costs - doesn't matter how heavy your parcel.

Is Splenda available in any supermarket in South England?


Thanks
Rey

Smile UK Supermarkets

This thread is strictly for Low Carb foods that you have found in UK Supermarkets and would like everyone else to know about.

Any discussion please start a new thread. I am quite easy-going with not keeping to the relevant title of threads elsewhere but hope to keep this factual, informative and exact.

Take care.

Thumbs up Breakfast cereal

Fresh & Wild health food store in London, Old Str (it's a chain store, so there are few more in London, not sure if any outside) has Zwicky Soay Bean Flakes 375g, 1.85.

per 33g serving
Protein: 13.2g
Carbs: 6g
Fat: 7g
of which saturates only: 1.3g
Fibre: 6.5g

I's organic and doesn' have any additive. It's made of 95% full fat soya bean flakes and 5% pure barley malt.

I found some info on this on the internet
http://www.zwicky.ch/indexe.htm

Had it with diluted whipping cream - very delicious and filling.

enjoy!
