    I know onions are superfree, and that they would count toward your 1/3 on the plate.

    I know before the rules changed that vinegar was classed as superfree, and would therefore mean that pickled onions would also count toward your 1/3.

    BUT now that superfree (for 1/3 purposes) only covers most fruit and veg I wonder if pickled onions count?

    Anyone know for sure?

    Thanks :D

    Ooooh, found my own answer - it was written in big letters at the top of the page in the food optimising book I had been staring at for ages :8855:

    And the answer is YES INDEEDY :D woohoo

    You know the pack you are given when you join (it changed beginning of the year), it has lots of booklets in it; The main book is 'food optimising' and it is in that, page 12:

    "Nearly all vegetables are superfree foods! Enjoy them fresh, frozen, canned or pickled in vinegar"

    I actually still use my original food optimising book for my weigh ins but I bought the new pack (with the new book) for the updated information. It has REALLY helped with the new rules on EE!!

    I also bought the new pack, as it gives more info than the old one.
    I also use my old book for weigh in but only read the new one for info.
    How is the EE going? I bet you love it ;)

    I find an easy way to have my s.f. 1/3 is to use pickles. I have onions, gherks, beetroot, red cabbage, cauli, whatever I can find really! Bit windy, mind!
