    Today

    Green Day.....!

    Breakfast - 1 oatso simple orginal sachet, with semi milk (HX A) and 1 teaspoon honey (1 SYN) and a chopped banana, plus a mug of tea.

    Lunch - Jacket potato with a helping of cottage cheese and chive (guessed at 3 SYNS, the SW site says it's 1 syn per 100g, don't know how much I had but I think 3 syns should cover it). Followed by a solera (5 SYNS).

    Dinner - 1 quorn 'southern' style burger (2.5 SYNS) in between two slices wholemeal bread (HX B) that had some light dairylea spread onto it (HX A) and a small amount of ketchup (0.5 SYNS), served with baked beans, SW free chips and a fried egg. Mmmm really tasty unhealthy tasting dinner that really hit the spot. Followed by 1 slice of the cherry clafoutis thing (1 SYN) and a smallish amount of low fat squirty cream (0.5 SYNS).

    So all HXs and 13.5 syns!

    Excuse my typing as i have a naughty non-sleeping baby on my lap

    today

    green day (again, finding it hard to come up with red day ideas that don't involve spending loads on meat)

    breakfast - 28g honey nut shredded wheat (HX B) with half of the (HX A) milk, 0% yoghurt, 1 tsp honey (1 SYN) and a sliced banana, and a cup of fruit tea.

    Dinner - Spaghetti carbonara - boiled up some spaghetti. Cut up a few slices of bacon and finely chopped 1/2 onion. Fried them up together whilst the spaghetti was cooking. Meanwhile cracked 3 eggs into a bowl and grated into it 84g of low fat cheddar (double cheese portion as it was for 2 people) and mixed the eggs and cheese together. Once the spagheti was cooked, drained it then added it to teh eggycheesy bowl, mixed it thoroughly then poured it all into the pan with the cooking onions and bacon. Stir thoroughly for a few minutes whilst the eggy mixture cooks around the spaghetti. It was delicious and used 1 HX A (cheese) and 1 HX B (bacon). Followed by the last slice of clafoutis (quite nice, I wrote about it in the pudding sticky) (1 SYN) and a small amount of squirty cream (0.5 SYN). With a can of pepsi max.

    Tea - Apple, 1 mini babybel light (2 SYNS), 1 cappucino flavoured kit kat (5.5 SYNS), 1 weetabix with sweetener (3.5 SYNS) served with the rest of my (HX A) milk and a cup of tea, lovely.

    13.5 syns, all HXs.

    Another green day, I'm hoping to do a red day tomorrow.

    Breakfast - 28g of mini chocolate crisp weetabix (part of HX B) with half of my (HX A) milk

    Dinner - 1 packet of uncle ben's chinese style rice (2.5 SYNS) and a homemade quorn chicken style pieces curry made with low fat natural yoghurt, onion, pepper, chilli sauce, curry powder and soy sauce. Pretty nice. Genuinely surprised to find that the quorn fake chicken tasted nicer than actual chicken. Followed by half a tub of homemade malteasers ice cream thing - from the SW website - 1 packet of malteasers at 9 syns and two toffee muller lights with some 0% fat greek yoghurt all stirred together and frozed. I had half (4.5 SYNS)

    Tea - 1 Hi Fi bar (HX B) and 1 Ryvita (other half of earlier HX B), 1 laughing cow extra light (1 SYN) and 1 mug of horlicks extra light sachet topped up with the rest of my HX A milk (2 SYNS).

    1 HX A, both HX B and 10 Syns

    I had a bad day yesterday :(
    Had a tesco food order booked, so had planned a lovely red day, climaxing with a salad with egg and bacon and toasted croutons and a tuna steak. But in my wisdom I'd not done the checkout properly and the order never arrived! (Totally my fault, I must have got distracted whilst placing the order) and didn't have any red meal food in the house..... hence.....

    Breakfast - 1 slice bread (1/2 HX B) with scrambled egg (made with HX A milk) and a mocha made with coffee and 1 options sachet (2 SYNS)

    Lunch - Bacon sandwich (bread HX B) with spread (2 SYNS) and ketchup (0.5 SYNS) and an apple, 1 ryvita (1.5 SYNS), baby bel and laughing cow cheese (HX A) and a muller light.

    Dinner - Indian takeaway - I had the dhansak that I had before listed as 6.5 syns BUT this time I weighed it and it was nearly double the weight! So Indian, (12 SYNS) and because I was feeling pretty annoyed by the situation...... malibu (7 SYNS) with pepsi max

    ALL HXs and 25 syns..... :( Feel in two minds really. Was unhappy when I weighed the indian which made me sort of glad that I'd only ordered just that dish but on the other hand I was wishing I'd just gone for it and had the naan and onion bhajees as well because I would have enjoyed it all more. But then I'd be looking at another 40 syns for the day probably.....

    Anyway back on track today.....

    Green Day

    Breakfast - 28g of mini weetabix chocolate crisp (HX B) with milk (HX A), some total 0% greek yoghurt, sweetener and a banana and a cup of tea.

    Lunch - Jacket potato with some spread (2 SYNS) and 1 mini baby bel (2 SYNS) and a slice of grilled bacon (HX B) and 1/2 tin of baked beans.

    Dinner - Loads of pasta served with chopped quorn sausages with a sauce made from chopped tomatoes, peppers, garlic all fried up together and served with some grated cheese (HX A). Really tasty and filling. Kitkat for afters (5.5 SYNS) and two glasses of malibu and pepsi max (5 SYNS).

    All HXs and 14.5 syns. So still a pretty bad day considering I was meant to be being good yesterday. Today I'm having a red day and being a lot better syn wise and getting more free food down my gob!
