    OK, I have been doing EE every day for almost 4 weeks....
    today however, I thought I would try a red day. I have my days food diary on the thread and everything is looking fine....
    I made my salad at lunch time, and without thinking I put sweetcorn kernels in it. Oh NOOOOOOO..... I just did it without thinking (so used to EE)...
    My food optimising book is almost 2 years old and I cannot find anything about sweetcorn being a HE on a red day.
    What should I do.?
    I have my HEs all planned out for today but could change one if needed... and my syns are at maximum for today.
    Can anyone help me and advise what I should do.?
    It was equivalent to 2 tbsp approx.
    thanks all

    Could you count the sweetcorn as a syn Debby? I don't know the syn value but I shouldn't think its very much...

    28g is 1.5 syns - so i reckon you had 3 syns max - probably only the 1.5 if truth be told :)

    you can't use sweetcorn as a HE i'm afraid :eek:

    Is there any way you can turn your day into an EE day? Have you had more had more than one A and B choice? Do you need to do a red day?

    Looks okay Debby! I'd do my own mash next time and save some syns!!!
    Well done for realising and changing things round, SW is super flexible sometimes. Good luck!
