    I was looking for extra lean mince the other day to make spaghetti bolognese, but the best I could find was lean mince :-/

    According to the points tracker lean mince has a pp value of 6 points??

    If I am doing filling & healthy I take it I need to deduct this value from my weeklies?

    Also, the 2 tsp of healthy oil- is that only allowed in the first week is simple start? Then has to be counted the rest of the time?

    i won't be having mince often, especially if I can't find the extra-lean.

    Extra lean is usually a very small pack and expensive, I think when I did sf ppl would count the lean as free but just make sure they tipped away all the fat whilst cooking, I haven't done ss but I would have thought u would need the oil for that too as it is just sf just they r saying instead of having 49 weeklies u can just pick 2 treats, hope this helps :-D

    I don't use the extra lean mince as it's very expensive,I use lean mince, I dry fry my mine the I drain it in a colander a squeeze out all of the fat before returning it to the pan.
