    Well reading through websites and old SW books I understood we can chose one Healthy Extra A and two Healthy Extra B.

    But i've just read this on the SW website and it suggests to me, that I can have however much I want from the list it gives:

    I've been having Milk from HEA, Weetabix and a Wholemeal roll from HEB.

    Though I miss my lunchtime proper sarnie of two slices of Wholemeal bread - I stick to a tiny wholemeal roll because I don't want to use many syns.

    If i'm understand this quote from the SW website correctly, I can still have two slices of wholemeal bread without counting syns? Or am I reading it wrong!:eek:

    The books state 2xA 2xB on red or green days and 1xA and 1xB on extra easy. That website quote does seem a bit misleading!!

    2 slices of wholemeal bread from a small loaf is a healthy extra. There's no reason to have a roll if you would prefer slices.

    Yes that's fine so stop panicking, just as long as you use the small slices of wholemeal bread for your B choice.

    best thing to do is get some digital scales. then if your bread weighs too much you can trim it to size. ;)

    You can just have 2 normal slices of bread (medium slices) and count it as an HEB + syns.

    1 small slice of bread from a 400g loaf is 3 syns each, 2 = 6 syns (HEB)
    1 medium slice of bread from an 800g loaf is 4 syns each, 2 = 8 syns (HEB + 2 syns)

    So you can have 2 medium slices of bread to make a sarnie as an HEB, just add 2 syns to make up the difference :D
