Hi all - just wondering if anyone had any good alternatives to butter/margerine because even the supposed low fat option still has a lot of fat in!

    I've used the Laughing Cow EXTRA LIGHT cheese triangle.  Less than 20 cals and less than 5g fat in 100g. Can't remember exact quantities I'm afraid but I enjoyed it on my wholemeal roll tonight.

    Hi Kat, I use extra low fat philadelphia for when I want to make pasta or new potatoes, or in a sandwich - i.e instead of butter, but if I am having rice cakes or ryvita's etc for lunch I use laughing cow light or philadelphia light. Philadelphia have lots of different flavours and laughing cow do a blue cheese flavour - it's really mild blue cheese flavour but absolutely delicious.

      Yes but be careful as I'm sure the laughing cow blue is not less than 5% fat. X

      Hi, yes you are right, they are a bit more, but gosh they are yummy. I only have 1 mind you. It's just enough to spread over 1 ryvita - oh happy days!
