It's just what you can have on each day, I know the ingredients and now have a free branded foods book (thanks to a fab person who donated theirs!).... but I guess it's getting your head around what to buy from the supermarket. i.e. do you pick so many green & red days per week or do you go by the main meal and work around it? everyone is so helpful on this forum!

Thanks... x
I tend to have more red days than green. My shopping list always contains the essentials like:
Mullerlite yoghurts
pasta n sauce - if on offer
savoury rice
Bacon, chicken breast, mince beef.
I do try and plan my meals in advance, but it doesnt always work out, although I do always plan the following day (quite busy as I have 2 jobs and I teach dancing).

Thanks for the tips.. I've now officially shopped and finished the food that was non-conformist so today I'm off on the first day (a little later than planned..)

l: omelette with mushrooms, onions & pepper and 1 slice bacon trimmed of fat.

Is this ok guys?
You are missing your other HeB Hun...you need to have 2 of them a day...bread, potatoes are what I generally have on a Red Day as my other HeB or another 2 Alpen light bars if Im working in the evening...other than that..perfect!

How does your quorn bolognaise turn out? I find my always to be a little watery without using any oil - I love dolmio :(

Have you a good recipe for it? x
Hi Hun...sorry to hijack the thread, but I make my bolognase:

Fry quorn mince in frylight, put to one side. Fry onions and mushrooms with garlic (in frylight), add mince.
While heating, add tinned tomatoes and a little passata and stir in some italian herb seasoning.
Cook for a while and serve with spaghetti.
I dont add carrots to mine, but you could as well as peppers.
I always find that the quorn mince needs lots of seasoning with salt and pepper, but thats really down to choice.

Hope this helps you?!
