    If you wanted to go green why not get boiled rice (free) noodles (free) and stir fry mixed vegetables (6.5 syns)

    If you go red you could have hot and sour soup (5 syns) Beef and Black bean sauce (5 syns) or with mushrooms (4.5 syns) but then you couldnt have any rice or noodles because you have already had your HEB today with your jacket potato and alpen light bars.

    Why not have the beef and balck bean and have an EE day. Your HEx's are in the limits so that would do you fine :) The 1.5stone rut is proving tricky for me!

    I thought this so i weighed my takeaway portion and it was double the weight of what my book said you could have for 7 syns for chicken chow mein, so my takeaway is actually 14 syns, but still within syn allowance if you fancy a treat
