    Sue at WW last night made us all giggle: she'd come across an ides she wanted to share. For those
    who need something sweet to pig out on now and again, try a packet of made up sugar free black
    currant jelly (jelly?) with diced plain boiled beetroot in it! No points in either the jelly or the
    beetroot. It is, she said, surprisingly good... I'm not sure I'm quite THAT desperate yet!

    Anyone else come across any similarly mad sounding ideas?

    As my mother-in-law would say, It sounds (pause for effect) interesting.

    Yuck!
    When I have no points left and desperately want to munch, I take a box of
    Greek peppers out of the fridge. You know, those green chilipeppers
    marinated in vinegar I think, that are sometimes served as an appetize with
    olives and feta? Most people I know find them way too hot. I like them, and
    after munching on 2 or 3 my mouth 's on fire for the next half hour, so no
    more munching :)

    Yes, those are not quite as hot as jalapinos but have a nice piquant bite - tangy. I get them on my
    pastrami sandwich.

    Ah, capers went into my shrimp dinner tonight with artichokes and sliced onions served over kasha.
