At class this week, one of the members told us about a very low syn curry that she'd found (I can't remember which one as I don't eat curry) and that it was only 1.5 syns a can. The consultant immediately launched into a speech about the difference between free food and syn free food, and how we should avoid ready meals even if they are low syn. I said that occasionally, I have a Pasta n Sauce or Batchelor's savoury rice and she said I shouldn't be eating them as they're full of additives! I know what she means- that cooking from scratch is always going to be the healthier option, but I don't think she should be actively discouraging new members from eating these things as sometimes they can be a life saver when time is short and you need a low syn lunch. When there was Mug shot in the prize basket, she took it out and asked us who put it in! It was like being back school! What do other people think?
