    Not sure whereabouts in Hampshire you are, but I absolutely LOVE Las Iguanas. I have no idea what the syn value of their meals are, but the food is fab and the cocktails can't be beaten, IMHO. Even the non-alcoholic cocktails are gorgeous!

    haha thanks!
    I found somewhere....what do you think of these options....Chips would be replaced with jacket potato

    BBQ Smothered Chicken
    Chicken breast with bacon, BBQ sauce,
    topped with melted cheese and served
    with chips


    half roast chicken
    served on a sizzling skillet with chips,
    onions and tomato,



    Plain Burger
    Choose between a juicy 6oz beef or grilled
    chicken breast burger with mixed leaves

    Blueberry Topped Sorbet
    Refreshing mango sorbet topped
    with an added zing of wild blueberries


    Extra of:
    diced onion rings,
    corn on the cob and
    button mushrooms


    What do you think syn wise? EE day be best or red? Bad options?

    Have had a think and think that:

    half roast chicken
    served on a sizzling skillet with chips,
    onions and tomato,


    Would be the best option if the chips are swapped for jacket potato.
    Does anyone knows if places like wetherspoons and pub chain restaurants will swap other things freely?
    Really i want to swap the onion and mushrooms for salad because they are fried, but do you think they would let me?

    I think that Wetherspoons food is frozen and microwaved so if it's frozen as a meal rather than individual items they may not let you swap out.

    If you are doing a pub chain place see if they have a nutrition guide online to check out and use the syn calc on. Some places have hidden syns even in things like chicken and jackets

    Thanks hun!

    J D Wetherspoon BBQ Chicken Melt with Jacket Potato, Peas, Tomato & Flat Mushroom per serving

    34½ Syns on Extra Easy



    At this place you can have diffrent size meals, small, regular and king. I will have the small so pob a small chicken breast and small potato and have a side of salad, i guess about 25 syns maybe? I mean there is only so much cheese etc you can get on a small chicken breast surely???
    and if i count an A of cheese and an A in oil? so 12 off that? 13 syns?
    Do you think that would be enough to cover it?
    So on weds i will have a syn/Hex free day other than that and try to go carefull the rest of the week at about 8 syns max.

    Do you think that will be alright?

    Im looking forward to it now, hopefully have a nice morning out somewhere and then nice lunch. The place is on the seafront so hope the weather is nice and will have to acoid the pink and white icecream :drool:
