    i dont think the eat out book takes into account the zero pointed stuff and goes soley by the nutritional info provided by each restaurant and points it accordingly. because if you find out the calorie content of salad veg it does come out as some points.

    Ahhh I see, so really just use your noggin, lol! So if something is obviously made up of point free veg it is free because all food have a calorie count. Im going to have to get my head around a whole new way of thinking, lol! Thanks :D

    yeah if you know its free, then its free :). it could possibly be pointed because there may be sweetcorn in the salad?

    Yikes, why cant a vegetable just be a vegetable! I think the moral of the story is, if its from a shop, check the ingredients for hidden extras if there's non, its free. If its a menu, count the 1/2pt to be on the safe side!
