    Hi there
    I was wondering if anybody could tell me whether I should put this down as an EE or green day? I always do green but had a big piece of salmon and would be HEB plus a fair few syns on Green!

    B - Oats So Simple and milk
    Banana

    L - Superfree Speed Soup with 2 slices wm bread from 400g loaf

    D 190g of salmon, spring onion mashed potato and green beans

    Any help would be great!
    Thanks, Vx

    I'd count lunch and dinner as EE, I'd normally have more fruit with brekkie tho. Tho on the hole EE should be ok!

    It can't be extra easy as you've had two hexb & you're only allowed one.

    For EE you'll need to syn either the oats so simple or bread.

    For green you'll have to syn the salmon.

    If it was EE you'd have to syn the bread though and if it was green you'd have to syn all the salmon as you'd already used B choices for porridge and bread, so whichever is the least syns, the bread or the salmon lol! xx

    The veg looks good though so you need to syn the cheese or milk which ever is least.

    They are the cheese sausages. Not even worth the syns but my mum bought them for me so needed using up!

    I know the lunch was a snack but I wasn't very hungry after the big (and late) breakfast I had!

    Bugger, didn't know about the cheese! :(

    I did know about the peas though so had a lot of carrot! Also, I didn't do much mash so was only about half and inch thick. Does this help?

    So if I leave the cheese, (already synned some of it!) and syn the milk I made the sauce with almost a pint and had less than 1/3. Probably about 3 syns?

    This is why I don't do EE! And I am planning to do a fish type week this week! :(

    Thanks for your help everyone! X

    The books you got when you joined sw I believe, explains EE very well (not mean't to sound patronising)

    If you read the EE section it tells you that on EE heb's are restricted to fibre based items including cereals, bread, dried and tinned fruit etc

    You can have 1 heb

    and hea's they cover your calcium items milk and cheese.

    You can have 1 hea.

    Also when plating up food imagine your plate is split into 3, fill 1/3 with superfree these are fruit and veg. The items you can have for this section are listed on page 11 and 12 of your food optimising book.

    Fill the other 2/3 of the plate with food that is free on red or green for example potatoes and meat or quorn sausage (free ones) and beans.

    It really is extra easy :rolleyes: once you get the hang of it.

    good luck
