    GREEN DAYS

    Started in earnest Friday 18th May. Looking after MIL at the moment who has a very small fridge and freezer so meals will be repeated as I hate to waste food. Veggie not for ethical choice but have Crohns and feel better if I don't eat meat but am living with 2 meat eaters at the moment so have to cook for them.
    So here goes.

    FRIDAY 18TH MAY 2012

    Breakfast - 35gms porridge (HEX B) fruit - yoghurt - seeds (3 1/2 syns)

    LUNCH

    Chickpea, potato and tomato soup and toast (HEX B)
    Sugar free jelly mousse and fruit 1/2 syn

    DINNER
    Jacket potato with beans, cheese and salad (HEX A)
    Garlic Mushrooms and greens.

    SYNS - 2 Cadburys Highlists 4 1 in potato as it was shop bought plus seeds 3 1/2 Pudding 1/2 = 9

    Just got the bargain of the month. Walked into town to get the 10,000 steps in and called in Oxfam book shop (can't walk past it actually :)) and there was a brand new Food Optomising book waving to me. It was 2.99 - never been opened.
    As all my SW stuff is at home and we may be here for a few weeks so had to buy it!!!

    Yes I eat toast dry - and bread - not bought any spread type stuff for years as I don't like the feel of it in my mouth but sometimes have Vegemite. If people come to stay with us they have to buy their own !!!
    Had to get OH to show me how to do the photos and I still have to use the crib sheet.

    Mmm subscribing! :) What is that pink stuiff in the breakfast? is it more yoghurt on top of some porridge, or something youve done with the porridge? Looks fab, Id like to try that! :)

    Depending on what is in the freezer the lighter one is raspberries and the darker one is blackberries whizzed up. I have said before that I don't count whizzed up fruit as syns because I was having them anyway - will see how it goes. Don't usually mess about with SW plan but this is my "soapbox" thingy (there is also half an apple in there as well !!)
    Thanks for looking at the dairy - enjoy reading all your posts and looking at your diary.

    Thank you - you are welcome.
    It probably helps that I don't go to work and have more time than other people to spend cooking.

    Don't drink tea or coffee and have been drinking Morrison Sherbet Lemon sugar free drink all week without looking at the bottle label - not able to buy where we live so presumed as it was sugar free was SYN free - it's not. Good job I have not been having 15 syns a day as I have drunk 2 bottles of it - 8 syns since Saturday :eek: Will have to be more careful in future.

    THURSDAY 24TH MAY

    BREAKFAST
    Porriddge - yoghurt - fruit - seeds HEX B 3 1/2 syns

    1 Apple

    LUNCH
    Leek and potato soup with Asian beans
    Mousse and fruit 1/2 syn

    DINNER
    Was going to make a cauliflower base pizza that I saw on the internet this morning then found some comments about it on here so changed my mind and went to Tesco to buy the bread mix to make a real one. Made it - 2 HEX A AND 2 HEX B but when it was on the plate looked far too big - 7" base with lots of baked veg topping with cheese - so had half of it with salad and Actifry chips. Will have the rest of it for lunch tomorrow. Must admit I worked out the calories of it to make sure I had calculated it right and yes half the pizza is 1 of each hex's working on 20 cals per syn and 6 to a hex. ( Was a bit worried I was eating too much). Pizza photo looks a bit dark but it was wholemeal flour
    1 HEX A 1 HEX B

    Total 1 HEX A 2 HEX B SYNS - 3 1/2 for seeds.......1/2 for pud...... 1 Actifry chips......1 mayo on salad.......4 Highlights.....1 Morrisons juice = 11

    WEEKLY SYNS TOTAL - 72 PLUS THE 8 I MISSED FOR MORRISONS JUICE = 80.

    We had one each and put the other 2 bases in the freezer ready rolled out but only ate half for dinner.
