Unfortunately, i've just done some research and found out what is in that spread, apart from soya oil ...sunflower oil aaaaaand.........palm oil
I don't know about the UK, but in the US "vegetable oil" almost always means soybean oil.
i know that i can still tolerate sunflower oil, cos i've been eating chips cooked in sunflower oil
(Loads of them,lately, cos baked potatoes started making me ill....guess why?) my doctor agrees that it can't be the soya oil(since i tolerate soya milk) so it must be the palm oil. also, i just checked a few other things in my cupboard, and it looks like palm oil is used in most things over here. *sigh*
you have some nice ideas though. thanks
i don't use gluten-free bread cos it's way beyond my pocket, but i do really like to to add margerine to my baked potatoes and stuff.
i used to grow my own herbs, but i'm too unsettled where i am (and far too fatigued) to start a new garden. Dried herbs are easy to come by, and fairly cheap though, and i do use them quite a lot
thanks for all the tips
