    Everything that is free on red and green is free on EE? 1 Hexa & 1 Hexb? Count the lowest syn value of red and green? Is that it or have i missed something?

    Also where can i buy extra lean mince? I have only ever seen lean. Im so tempted to buy some stuff from Joes sausages but it's just so expensive!!

    Yep, you've got it! As for mince, I just buy the leanest possible which usually just says 'lean' and 12% fat.

    I bought 2 x 500g packs of it (the organic one but I'm guessing it's similar) and have used it in the chilli I've made for buffet night.

    Dilemma....do I just tell them it's free as I assumed it was or confess that I made a mistake and that the whole pot is 30 syns??!

    I tend to buy the lowest fat one and not worry about the syns unless it has cereal in it.

    Think I'll have to just start going to the butchers if I want extra lean mince and have them do it for me.

    Morrisons do extra lean mince aswell as lean. It works out a bit more money but worth it. Ive also seen it in asda as extra lean.

    If I haven't got extra lean mince, I'll get the leanest I can, brown off seperately and drain the fat off, then I don't count the syns.

    I did the same - browned it and drained the fat. Hopefully that will cut down on the syns!

    I'm so happy its the lowest syn value of red or green on extra easy. I was just trying to work that out from the extra easy booklet and not getting anywhere.

    I've always bought Tesco healthy living/light choices frozen mince and never counted the syns but then chose to just use quorn as it is free AND a speed food :angel09:
