    You won't find any that are free. I really like the Weight Watchers Chicken and Lemon Risotto- I think that's 6 syns on a green day so it's not too bad.

    Hope this helps

    I live alone and find it a bit of a chore to constantly prepare food for myself.

    I like the pasta and sauce dried sachets are good on a green day (if you make them with just water and not milk and butter they are a completely free food and delicious) you will find them down the ailse with the super noodles etc etc (also the low fat supernoodles are free on a green day)

    If i do feel like cooking i will make a whole batch of spag bol etc etc etc and freeze the sauce in individual portions and then just heat it in the microwave and cook fresh pasta or buy the dolmio 2 min micro pasta which after a slight preparation it makes a home made ready meal.

    Alot of ready meals are ok for you as a dinner providing they are the low fat ones e.g. if you got a low fat cauliflower cheese micro meal the cheese would be you healthy a and the cauliflower would be free as its a veg so thats good on either day.

    If I really cannot be bothered to cook anything I just go to tesco grab a cauliflower cheese micro portion and an instore cooked chicken.

    There are so many different meals you can think of using. Just remember that you can include you healthy a and b's into the meal even from a packet.

    Hope this helps

    This is a thread from 2008 so syn values are likely to be out of date. There is a sticky on ready meals with current details on it.

    Sorry if this has been answered elsewhere (I can't find it). If your ready meal has a high percentage of vegetables can you count those as free and only syn up the reast fo the ready meal? Last week i had one from M&S. It was a stuffed half of butternut squash so it was mostly butternut squash and I thought it would be pretty low in syns but I didn't lose any weight this week and I'm wondering if that's why.
