    Hi I am new here and also to SW!

    15lb to lose - not much but it will be a struggle.

    My difficulty is breakfasts - normally a toast or cereal girl.

    What do you have for breakfast?

    Is it a free or does it come from your healthy extras/syns???

    Morning Kristell
    I also a SW member struggling a bit at the moment. New to this site though so also looking for a bit of help.
    I am following the green plan as a vegetarian
    Breakfast I have eggs (free on green I know not sure about Red), sometimes with a slice of toast as a HEX. A tip at class was have some melon before each meal but I usually just have it before breakfast. Also you could try frozen berries and FF.
    If I have cereals (HEX), it is shreddies or something similar. Also like Shredded Wheat/Weetabix with hot milk - tend to use a lot though so I have 1 pint as my HEX. Porridge seems to leave me more hungry in the mornings!!!!
    At weekends when I have more time it could be quorn sausage, beans and toms sometimes with a slice of eggy bread.
    Hope this helps.
    Irene

    Thanks for those ideas - it isn't the easiest of 'eating plans' to follow - the healthy extras being different depending on the days etc., I have been going through lots of threads and seeing what people do on different days to get ideas!

    Having a green day today - for breakfast we are having beans on toast with some dry fried bacon pieces on - will work out later what it is all using! Will prob have a pasta lunch and then a jacket potato tonight.

    I miss my biccies though!

    Couldn't you use your syns for your biccies? Of course this depends on the biccies, I like to use my syns a couple of glasses of wine as I don't have a sweet tooth normally:confused: Struggling a bit at the moment though - think it is because there are still lots of choccies around.
    I find the plan easy to follow and this is because all my days are green ones.

    Hi Kristell
    Blimey you must have a 'will of iron'
    Just made soup for lunches this week. Have taken out my frozen berries for breakfast to have with fromage frais - do better if I plan ahead - how long it will last is anyone's guess!!!!:rolleyes:

    Eggs

    Hi Irene and Kristell,

    I'm also doing SW and eggs are free on both red and green days. I find it hard to vary my eating cos i don't like veg(only in a stew........weird i know). Tho i can live on potatoes so not too bad.

    Hmmm well I'm not very experimental with breakfast I'm afraid. Usually it's just 2 weetabix (HeX B) and 250ml semi skimmed (Hex A) although if I have more time I do make up a fruit salad which is free, or I have tinned tomatoes, baked beans, a poached egg, mushrooms etc which is all free too!

    Thants what i find too Kristell......at the moment im off work so have loadsa time for preparation, but when Im back at work i wont. I think planning in advance is the way to go, so you have everything at hand, and trie to prepare veggies or anything the night before.

    have a good day everyone
