    as long as you have your points today.

    I too made soup today, but it looks too 'green' it probably tastes lush, but the colour has put me off lol!

    Ummmm, none really at present
    I love butternut squash and carrot soup.
    It's so thick and comforting and best of all zero points.
    Its a brill way to make your points go further.
    Just one thing Eileen..are you on core or points?
    Just asking cos potatoes and parsnips have to be pointed unless you are a core girl.

    I make massive, and I do mean massive!, 0 point salads and pep it up with a bit of reduced fat feta or prawns or tuna and balsamic vinegar. Which makes a really filling lunch for 2 points.

    You'd be amazed at what you can do with all the 0 point veggies given a bit of imagination! I put chillis and gherkins and pickled onions and sundried tomatoes and green beans etc etc etc... it's a far cry from boring old lettuce.

    It does take ages to prepare and eat though!

    If youre on points potatoes have to be counted.

    But if youve made 0 point soup Eileen you go for it ;) So long as you stick to your points you can do it whatever way suits you :)

    i did put parsnips & potatoes in but its still very low in points, well spotted, it just shows sometimes we think we are only having our points when in fact we are going over.Well thats another learning curve for me.Thanks ladies.
    I hope everyone has a good day.
