    You could either mix a tin of chopped tomatoes with honey (count as Syns) or you could buy one of these jars:

    Tesco Healthy Eating, Sweet & Sour Stir Fry Sauce, jar 440g jar

    Syns: 8.5 red/ green so even if you have half a jar, that's just 4.5 syns... and even less if it's going between 4!

    Or:

    Tesco Light Choices, Sweet & Sour Oriental Cooking Sauce, jar 510g jar

    Syns: 7 red/green

    Or:

    Asda Good for You, Sweet & Sour Cooking Sauce, jar 320g jar

    Syns 11 red/green

    If you're on a red day then your chicken or pork will be free, and your veg would be as well.
