    Hi All,

    I have a quick query which I'm hoping someone can answer?
    I'm following EE which allows me one hexb a day and for my lunch I have had a Baxters Healthy Minestrone soup which in my book says it should be a hexb but why when I make a soup at home with for example - wholemeal pasta, veg and some stock is it classed as free food?

    I'm still fairly new at this so just want to make sure I'm following the plan correctly.

    Thanks x

    Yes that would be free. Always best to make your own soup - so much nicer too!

    Thanks Jaylou, but what is the nutirtional difference between the tinned and the home made to make one a healthy extra and one a free option?

    I have no idea as I don't eat tinned soups but I guess there will be more ingredients than veg, meat and pasta. Probably some sort of thickener in there and oils? I don't know for certain.

    Read the label! Bet it has oil in it for a start! And tomato puree, perhaps?

    I always keep one tin of soup in the cupboard for emergencies - the one I have now is Baxters Healthy Choice Chunky Carrot, Bean and Quinoa.

    As well as all the obviously free ingredients, look what else is lurking in there:

    cornflour
    double cream
    tomato paste
    honey
    sugar

    Which is why it is 10 syns for the can!! It is absolutely delicious, and I will definitely be eating it one day (its best before date is the middle of next year), but personally I would much prefer to be making free soups and using my syns on chocolate!!
