    I've always been on the EE plan and have never really looked into Red or Green plans but I need a change. Just need a bit of reminding of what I can eat on these, EE was obviously easy as you can eat everything but not on these!

    Stopped going to meetings a while back so I can't really ask the consultant, just need a little bit of help :)

    Hi, I do all green so I can help you here :)

    Green Free Foods:
    Pasta
    Rice
    Potatoes
    Noodles
    Lentils
    Grains
    Beans and Peas
    Fruit and Vegetables
    Fat free yog, cottage cheese, fromage frais etc.

    Of course you also have to make sure you have 2 x HEB and 1 or 2 X HEA :)

    I'm afraid I can't be much help with red :(

    Red tends to be you can't have carbs but can have meat. However, when doing Red/Green you can have things off the other plan but have to Hex them or syn them.

    thinking about doing the opposite- from green to ee, for the same reasons...mix it up a bit.
    Previous post is spot on about what you can have on Green and Im also rubbish at Red!
    My favourites on Green are all the different pasta dishes, carbonara, bolognese with lentils , macaroni and cheese(triangles) . Also jackets spuds with yummy beans! Noodles with chinese vegetables! SW quiche with couscous or bulgur wheat to pack it out!( very filling) SW chips!
    Yumm! Am thinking of switching to EE just becasue my boys are now off school. And i want us to eat together. (they dont really like anything without meat!)

    Slowly cutting out refined sugar and cooking more from scratch
    Why not have a mixture of days, some red, some green some EE? Always good to mix it up abit. Obviously each whole day has to remain on the same plan but the next day can be different?
