    we are having the inlaws round on sunday and was planning on having a lamb roast but OH has changed his mind ( hes the cook) and is making a beef stew now..
    i have decided to make my own because he will not be making it sw friendly at all !!

    how much stewing steak could i have as a healthy extra for a green day

    ( i want to make cous cous dumplings so would rather have a green day!)

    85g of raw beef with all fat trimmed off is 1 HEXB on Green. Obviously you can double that if you use both HEXBs on it.

    PS but if it's a stew presumably you're having some veggies in/with it? So why not just go EE then you can have both beef AND couscous?

    Mmm what do you normally have for lunch/breakfast? Usually easy enough to have a few berries/fruit with your brekkie and a few veg/salad etc with your lunch? Up to you though, if it works using it as a HEX that's no problem, go with that! :)

    No, just 1/3 of your plate. The point in the 1/3 SF is to limit the amount of other stuff you eat - so you're not physically eating any *more* by eating the 1/3 Fruit & veg, in fact you're eating EXACTLY THE SAME amount by volume, it's just a third of it is healthier than it would otherwise have been. Which is what we should be doing on all plans really :)
