    hi jenXx did u read the link for newbies i put on my previous post to you it explains it very well, ham , turkey etc counts as free on ee if its off the bone (not the packs of reformed ham,chicken etc) usually the type u get from the butchers, i was following ee but found i wasn't always having the 1/3rd superfree with each meal and didn't like only getting 1 h/e a and b so i now do green or red, have you now joined the s/w group? take a look at some of the diaries on here to get some idea of what to eat, good luck xx

    Hunny. I just re-read your thread. RELAX!! Seriously your too tense about it all. Sit down with a nice cup of your fave brew, get your books out, and slowly read through them. Make notes if you have to. Dont skip any sections read all the passages. Read it again and again if you need to, to get it to stick and then ask questions about bits you dont understand.

    If you like veg hun, you will have no problem having enuff superfree veg, just pile your plate up with a 1/3rd on your plate.

    If your following EE you could have had a REAL steak (all fat removed) and made your own SW peppercorn sauce the link is SW recipe.

    Dont be scared of food, most of it can be tweaked to fit in with SW rules.

    Take a look at other ppls food dairys, theres an enormous amount of recipes out there.

    Britmums recipes are seriously lush. Allie does a good diary, she gives you pictures. I put recipes in mine.

    Get the magazine in, try some recipes, most of them are very easy to do!

    Gain a passion for cooking things that taste amazing, and forget your on a diet! Use your imagination, the skys the limit!!!

    Good luck hunny!

    The best thing you can do to help yourself follow the plan is to sit down and read through the plan and learn what foods are syn free, healthy extra's and syns. If you joined group, you should have all the information you need to follow the diet sucessfully. It does take time at the beginning to get your head round it, but it's worth it once it becomes second nature.

    If you focus on what's syn free, and getting the superfree in with every meal, the rest should fall into place easily.

    1 healthy extra portion of bread is 6 syns, so 2 slices of bread from a normal sized loaf would be 1 HEB and 6 syns. Also, a can of Heinz vegetable soup is 9 syns, not 2.5.

    Fry an onion in frylight until soft.
    Add chicken stock (bovril or cubes, I use 1 knorr and 1 oxo cube)
    Simmer until thickened.
    Whisk.

    I tried gravy granules recently again for a treat.
    EUGH. Nothing compared to the onion one.

    Ps. Just seen a recipe for a mushroom version of this and its AMAZING!
