    How does one measure out 2 tbsp of lettuce or for that matter any of the permitted veg (except the peas of course)? Are people just guessing?

    I imagine what it would look like! If you cup your hand, it's about what would fit in there without spilling over the top.

    thanks for the advice :)
    I wonder, since one of the options is 4 sachets and some amount of skim milk, could I just do my regular 3 sachets and finally have some coffee with sweetener and skim milk? That would be fab, maybe just one a few of the days. I do so miss my coffee, just can't stomach it black though

    Hi CheeseGirl,

    Sorry, I don't know much about SS+ to advise re the coffee, but picking up on your first post, as you mentioned peas I just wanted to check that you were aware peas/sugar snaps aren't allowed as they have too much sugar. :)

    Hi Clazzac,

    Yeah, thanks. Peas were the only veg I could think of at the moment that you could actually get onto a tablespoon to measure :)

    1 tablespoon Dry weight is 15 grams so your SS+ meal can contain 30 grams of the allowed veg or salad.

    Much easier and top tip go for rocket or watercess or lettuce you get far more:D
