    Hi again,

    Could somebody please give me a few meal plans for a green day? This week i've only had two, one of them i made cottage pie with quorn and the other i had a jacket potato with salad. I don't see my o/h eating the same stuff every week so need to find something different. I only have 7 weeks until i go on holiday so i really want to get stuck in and eat the best 'weight loss' foods possible if you know what i mean.

    Thank you
    Claire x

    Hi Claire
    When I make it, I use passatta because I just prefer it, but its also free.
    And yes on a Green Day you can have Philly as a HEB.
    85g of EXTRA Lite
    and 57g or Lite.
    You can also syn it, Extra Lite is 1.5 syns per 28g. And the lite is 2 syns per 28g.
    (I think thats right lol) :rolleyes:

    Quorn curry is nice. Boil your rice, cook the quorn and mix it with spices (curry powder, paprika etc) and a tin of chopped tomatos and chopped peppers. Delish.

    That sounds lovely, and my fella would love it. He had the quorn cottage pie i made the other night and said it didn't taste any different and he really enjoyed it so would think he'd enjoy the curry too x

    Mushroom Risotto is a new favourite of mine, free on green and its DEEELISH and very filling!

    Mushroom Risotto

    1 mug of Arboria Risotto Rice
    mushrooms (i just use regular closed cap ones, but posh ones would be lovely)
    frylite
    onion / shallots
    2 cloves garlic
    veg stock or dry mushroom soup mix
    salt and pepper
    chives (if desired)

    Finely chop onion and garlic and soften in fry lite.
    Roughly chop mushrooms (smaller is better, but whatever texture you like) and add to softened onion and garlic.
    Cook for a couple of minutes then add rice and mix together, fry for a couple more minutes, keep stiring.
    (At this point if using dry mushroom mix add about a tablespoon and mix)
    Add 1 mug of veg stock or boiling water and stir constantly until it is all absorbed
    Add 1 more mug of boiling water or stock slowly (like a 1/3 at a time) and keep stiring until it is all absorbed before adding the next bit (hope that makes sense).
    Add salt and pepper (and chives) to taste.

    Should take about 20 minutes in total for the rice to cook.
    Serve immediately.
    If you want cheese, use a HEA to keep it syn free. Stir in just before serving.
    Enjoy
