hi lisa welcome to minimins :) looked at ur menu for today looks ok apart from a couple of little things:

porridge is only a h/e b if u have 1 oat/scan bran or 1 ryvita crackerbread but there r probabbly a lot of people who come on here and say they have porridge but don't bother with the scan bran ;)

mullerlight new york cheese cake yog might be synned because of the spongey bits in it but not 100% sure on that one

if the apple is cooked it has to be synned

but overall looks good just needs a slight tweaking good luck losing the lbs x
Thankyouor the advice ,yeah the apple would be 0.5 syn but it would be shared between 2 of us in the gravy ?

Also if i had the ryvita wholegrain for breakfast what could i have on it ? bannan ? jam ?

well the apples not worth bothering about then and the ryvita i would have a banana on it or put some bran in my porridge :)

Can i ask a q question about the pork im cooking ?, ive cut off all visable fat put it in the roasting tin with onion and apple ? and a little water , now when this is cooked can i use the liquid that will be left in the tin for gravy ? as ive used no fat ? or would this juice be classed as fat ?
Not sure it would be fat, guess you'd have to see whether it looks like fat when it comes out - I reckon it should be fine though.

Might I suggest mixing a little reduced fat creme fraiche into the juices and apple when it's cooked- makes an absolutely delicious sauce and I think it's 1.5 syns per tablespoon, and you don't need much.

I want pork for dinner now!

To highlight Val's point, I very often have 28g porridge oats as my Hex B and never have any Ryvita or Scanbran (aka food of the devil)...you're supposed to do this for fibre but with all the fruit and veg you end up eating, I'm pretty sure you'll be getting enough :)

And I've checked for you and the New York Cheesecake Muller is 1 syn

If you go into Lifeline online, and find the Syns Online bit (under my weight loss tools), search by manufacturer (in this case, Muller) and then type in what you're after (e.g. New York Cheesecake), press enter and it appears (hopefully) xx

Sounds like you're getting into the swing of it really well!! I was about to mention the New York Cheesecake Mullerlight too!! But noticed someone had beaten me to it!! That makes our yogurt match 1-1 lol!! All the Mullerlight cheesecake flavours are 1 syn each, the vanilla/choc sprinkles with black cherry underlayer are 2 syns and all the others are free.X
