    You can have whichever days you want, when you want them and how often you want them. Don't forget extra easy too which is a combination of both (good link for this in top section for newbies)
    As for your ingredients a spanish omlette jumps out to me or potatoe wedges and beans xx

    Hi :D Just thought I would share how I do my Potatoe wedges/SW Chips

    ~Peirce & Cook your Potatoes for 10-15mins in the microwave :)

    ~Wait for them to cool completley

    ~Slice into which ever style you like, I just do rough wedges

    ~Pre heat your oven to 200* and get a Oven proof dish out ready

    ~Spray generously with Spray Cal.. then chuck some lazy garlic in, mixed herbs + Garlic Salt.

    ~ Layer the wedges in gently they are quite fragile!

    ~Then repeat on top (Spray Cal, lazy garlic, mixed herbs)

    ~Bake for around 40-50 mins.. Depending.. It can sometimes take an hour!

    ~Serve with fresh salad/Beans & Egg/Quorn Sausages.. Or lovely just to snack on ! They are completly free!

    This is just how I do it.. You need to experiment.. see what you like :D Also if you dont have time to cook potatoes in microwave & let them cool (potatoes seem to take forever and a day to cool) Then you can do the prep part the day before and leave in a lunchbox in fridge! :D

    I recommend that you drink at least 2ltrs of water, try and get 30mins exercising in if you can, have your B's and at least 1 A choice :D

I weened myself into excercise as i am a lazy bugger who doesnt like the cold.. But me and my boyfreind (who is also a SW follower) walk up the beach for an hour with the dog :D Am planning to introduce some more in a few weeks.. taking it easy for now xx Do you have a lot to lose? xx

    You can still have it - just limit it to 15 syns worth per day! :) Choose wisely from the menu and you'll be fine!
