Hi there,

I'm back at WW after a 7 year break and still just trying to find my feet with the new pro points system! I've been trying to buy Quark and I've had no luck in finding it!
I've tried shops in Dublin city centre and balbriggan so far - an leads on this ladies??!!

Cheers,

Ali

I buy it in Tesco and dunnes regularly :bigups: it's in the soft cheese section in the chilled department in a tub like cottage cheese! You'll also find fat free fromage frais in the same section :bigups:

Thanks for the replies, girls!

I have tried the Dunnes, Tesco and Supervalu in Balbriggan - no joy!!

I have also tried the Dunnes, Tesco and Supervalu in the city centre - no joy again! I might try asking the Supervalu Balbriggan if they can get it in for me?

Cheers,
Ali

Here's some ideas for using it when you do find it. Also recall Ruby Tandoh did a piece on it in the Guardian recently so maybe google that for more ideas if interested:

Quark is a fat free cream cheese, which is a versatile substitute to add to some classic
recipes to make them healthy and delicious!
1.
Sweeten quark with a little honey and flavour with vanilla extract. Add some
blueberries or add to your porridge.
2.
Stir into Soup at the end of cooking for a creamy finish!
3.
Fry some garlic and sliced mushroom
s in some spray oil with a few springs of fresh
thyme. Blend with quark and season with plenty freshly ground pepper. Spread on wholemeal toast and serve.
4.
Layer thin slices of parsnip, celeriac and potato in a baking dish. Mix quark and a
little skimmed milk and crushed garlic, season and pour over the vegetables just to
cover. Sprinkle with grated reduced fat mature cheddar and bake until tender.
5.
Easy White Sauce.
Mix a 250g tub of quark with 125ml skimmed milk, season
with pepper and heat gently, stirring.
6.
Cheat's cheesecake. Mix together equal quantities of quark and 0% fat
Greek yogurt. Add some lemon zest and juice and elderflower cordial to taste then spoon
over crumbled amaretti biscuits in glasses.
7.
Crunchy Slaw. Toss shredded fennel, red cabbage, carrot and apple in a dressing
made from quark, lemon juice and wholegrain mustard
8.
Herb Sauce for fish. Stir creamed horseradish, chopped dill and parsley into
quark.
Spread over salmon or white fish fillets, then top them with breadcrumbs and bake.
9.
Skinny dip. Mix some quark with coarsely grated cucumber, garlic, mint and
plenty of black pepper for a cooling dip or sauce to serve with curries.
10.
Eton Mess. Thin some quark with a little orange juice and stir in crushed
meringue, poached rhubarb and a little orange zest.
11.
Mixed with sweetener great substitute for cream

add strawberries or fruit of
your choice!
12.
Make filling & healthy pancakes by
adding 1 whisked egg to a tablespoon of quark
and mix together to make a batter. Add sweetener for sweet pancakes or herbs for
savoury.
13.
Whisk with eggs and stir in cooked pasta, mushrooms and bacon for
Carbonara

Thanks a million for all those ideas, I always end up buying quark and then throwing it in the freezer because I can't think what to do with it :biggrin:

I haven't actually tried any of the ideas yet, Solas, but they look nice in theory!

Hello!
I know that my wife uses Reductil from http://www.reductil-sibutramine.net because she decided to lose weight.
It works for her ...
it is an easy diet, not expensive and she feels very good.
Maybe it will help you.
On this site you can find something for any medical problem
