    hi

    I am going to be sticking to green for now as i think it might be cheaper and i have got to buget myself for a few weeks,
    Can anyone give me any ideas on quick meals,im going to tescos after to get some beans and super noodles.

    Does anyone on here eat alot of pasta and pots & still lose weight,as i have got it in my head that i will put weight back on,

    Thanks

    I eat tonnes of pasta and rice and still loose weight. Get some Quorn too! Its delish with rice and some form of sauce. Ive got Quorn chicken filets tonight stuffed to a Extra Light Laughing Cow cheese triangle and some batchlors savory rice.

    Thankyou
    i have lost 1.5 stone at the moment in 7 weeks and that is all red days,but the way work is at the moment, i have got to budget on spending,so i hought green days would be cheaper,my leader told me the 98% fat free supernoodles are free on green,so that will keep me going for some meals,And ill make different pasta salads etc.

    Pulses are very cheap- tinned ones don't require long cooking/soaking. You can look in the recipe section for lots of curry/dhal recipes. These are great when you fancy something different (and keep you regular!)

    Canned Chickpea dahl is lovely on jacket or rice and if you got a ping ping (microwave) it wouldn't take long

    Risottos don't take long about 20mins and you can put loads of free veg in them

    stir frys with noodles only take mins to make cos you can buy all the veg already shredded etc. and while the noodles are soaking, you just cook the veg job done.

    Hope these help a little.

    Hi sorry i'm new to all this to, but I have found this site really helpfull. But I am a bit confused and I'm sure its stuff you've all answered loads of times. But I think I will be doing mainly green days too... is it true that Pasta n Sauces and Super noodles are both free on a green day. I keep on being told differnet things and its confusing enough as it is lol :)

    I have to watch how much pasta I eat as I find it slows my losses down and the same with bread. I am fine with spuds and rice etc but pasta isn't my friend lol. Just try different meals and keep a note of when you losses are better etc then take it from there. I am a veggie and only ever followed green days and am very happy with the rate I have lost on SW. Good luck with your journey.
