    Mushy pea curry / third of the plate

    Can I just confirm that the ingredients in the MPC mean that I don't need to include third of the plate in addition to what's being served coz the ingredients are all free / speed anyway? xx

    I believe Slimming World still recommend that 1/3 of your plate be SuperFree, no matter what ingredients have gone into the rest of your meal.

    Are the ingredients in MPC super free or just standard free foods? I put in mushy peas, chopped tomatoes, garlic powder, onion+curry powder then I whizzed it all down... I then added some mushrooms to it+served it today with rice so I don't know if it's counted as my third or not #Confusing

    Mushy peas, tomatoes, onion and mushrooms all SuperFree.

    Garlic powder, curry powder and rice all Free.

    You should be alright, as you have pretty much covered the 1/3 SuperFree there. It's not entirely essential, but they do recommend it. Basically, the more you fill up on Superfree (i.e. 1/3 of your plate), the more you will boost your weight losses.

    Most of the ingredient in MPC are standard free foods rather than superfree (in yours - as you describe it - only the tomatoes, onions and mushrooms are superfree). Mushy peas are superspeed but not superfree (they are starchy vegetables so have a higher calorie density than, say, carrots )

    I don't make MPC because I hate baked beans lol, so I'm not sure exactly how thick it is ... would it be possible to add more onion plus any of the following (all of which are lovely curried :-) ) so that the curry itself contains 1/3 to 1/2 superfree : cauliflower, leeks, Brussels sprouts, courgettes, grated carrot, diced aubergine, french beans.

    You could also increase superfree by serving over vegetables instead of rice. I quite often have broccoli bolognese or even vegetable curry over cauliflower/cauliflower rice and it's just as yummy and filling as with rice/pasta

    Princess Stevie ... I LOVE your Jack Rascal I have two of my own ... one of which looks just like yours x

    This is probably very annully retentive LOL but I weigh the non superfree ingredients then work out what a 1/3 is then add that to the curry in the form of onions, mushrooms, peppers, grated carrot, then I don't have to worry about making sure there's a 1/3 on my plate because I know I got it covered before cooking.

    I'm a virgo thats my excuse LOL!

    I love that idea Lydia - not that I imagine I'll get round to doing it myself usually (I try to aim for 50 / 50 most meals so hopefully I'm okay) but might start doing it if I'm unsure.
