I know with fruit, if u stew it it alters the value of it. But can i still class potatos, carrots etc as Free and then just count the oil as 3 or 6 or what ever its worth? or does the entire value change?
If you fry an egg with oil, most of the oil stays in the pan when you lift it out. Even more oil disappears if you drain it on kitchen paper. Unless you eat all the remaining oil you won't be taking on board the syns. I am assuming that is why a fried egg is only half a syn.
Compare that with scrambled eggs with butter - all the butter gets incorporated into the egg, so you eat it all. Same with an omelette.
I always struggle to get my HEA and HEB when on Green- unless I plan it I always fail to have them.
HEA are not a problem as I always have a glass of milk at night time (and will always happily have 2 glasses), but I was always missing out my HEB. So I know have Ryvita for lunch and Alpen Light bars for breakfast. Do not see lunch while at work as any particular highlight of the day so happy to have the same thing every day!
if you need to use oil, rather than use a tablespoon poured over use a teaspoon in a plastic bag with the veg or watever your roasting, mix it up till all the veg gets covered. i saw this on telly the other week. i tried it too, works, saved on syns and tasted delicious
