    It says in the book that a chicken chop suey (with noodles) is 9 syns on a red day & 5.5 syns on a green day.
    Why have they included noodles in a chop suey, wouldn't it them become a chow mein?! Anyway; does anyone know what a normal chop suey would be? All the ingreedients (bean sprout, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots, carrot, chicken) except oil and sauce would be free on a red day.

    I love chinese and i'm trying to figure out a menu that won't break the Syn bank! I figure some sauce free (my local does some in a chili and garlic dressing) ribs would go down nicely too! Not forgetting to count Syn in the dressing:p


    PS i don't intend eating chinese on a regular basis!!

    I suppose it would but can't offer any advice I'm afraid. Why not phone up the syn helpline and see what they say?

    I have beef mushrooms and white rice. Beef mushrooms has your 1/3 superfree (mushrooms and most places put onions and thinly sliced carrot in it)

    i think it's something like 4.5 syns per 350g of meal and your white boiled rice is free. I ask the chef to cook it without oil and they will happily do that for you. I still count the syns as 4.5 per 350g. The meal I get is normally around the 500g mark.

    I have also been known to get chicken foo yung and ask for a very small amount of oil to be used, not have any syns at all that day and still have a loss.

    Hope this helps with your Chinese dilemma.
