    Hi AG

    In regards to the chick-sticks why dont you buy some turkey/chicken bits (from breasts),slice and just dip into an egg and bread-crumbs,I do this for chloe as chicken nuggets (tell her they are veggie tho,lol) and then either deep-fry (I know not good) or bake I am sure you can bake these.

    As for juices,I have a juicer and on market day I buy all my fruit cheap,get all the crappy looking stuff (is ok for juicer) and juice it but this is a pain in the wotsit so if you get say Tropicana or equivilent make this is NOT from concentrate and mix it with Value carbonated water make it last longer.

    Also when all that stuff is reduced,(get your OH to check as he works in ASDA) buy the juices and chicken reduced and freeze,the juices freeze great and so do innocence,and as they are so expensive I only buy them when either on offer or are reduced lol,I am queen of the bargain ailse.


    Dunno if any of this helps but thought I would add my tuppences worth anyway.

    Sorry not been on in the last few days.

    Chicksticks, fact is most processed chicken stuff is not a large percentage of actual meat, a lot is skin and connective tissue, flour and water to bulk (hence why they often srink so much in size when they cook) and additives. If you do really want to eat things like this look for the ones the promise 100% breast meat, birds eye I believe are often quite good for this plus they dont tend to add preservatives.

    With fruit juices, concentrate is basically squash, its concentrated down to like a syrup consistancy, where its treated to preserve it, its then shipped off and water added to dilute it again and sold, so it contains no real health benefits, hence why its pretty cheap, cause its much the same as squash. If yuo looking for fresh juice you want to be looking in the chiller section thats where all the fresh juices are, cause they are not preserved in the same way as concentrate, you haveto keep it cold. Bexxie is right, tropicana is a pretty cheap fresh juice, generally orange is the cheapest. And bear in mind you dont need to be drinking pints at a time, just a small glass or two a day is all you need.
