Extra Easy lentil soup - free or HEb?

Hi I've just joined SW and I'm a bit confused. I'm trying to do EE. My consultant said lentil soup was free on EE but the food diary online has it down as a HEb and I've already used my HEb for today.

If it's a HEb, what am I going to have for lunch? I always have either lentil soup or a sandwich...argh!

As far as i know homemade lentil soup would be free, but canned stuff would have to be synned or a heb. Hope that is right,i'm sure someone else will confirm shortly.
I also have lentil soup at lunch on EE and count it as free, so hope i am right!
Yes, that is right..homemade is free, but there are tins that would either have to be synned, or used as a HeB.
If you have the magazine this month, I can recommend the SW scotch broth on EE day....absolutely delicious and free!
I get it from a bakers shop (not greggs) and they advertise it as 'homemade' so I guess it would be free then!

ooooh scotch broth! I've bought the mag but haven't read it, will definitely look into that!

Thanks x

Strutting her stuff
Unfortunately you can't assume that it is syn free without knowing how they make it. It's possible that they will use butter to fry the onions in or add milk/cream at the end, both of which would add to the syn value. So If you want to have this I suggest you have a word with them just to make sure. But if I were you I really would start making your own lunch to bring with you as you'll know for sure what syns you're eating and you'll save money as well! You'll get a huge pot of lentil soup for what you'll pay for serving in a shop. And you should really think about introducing a variety of foods rather than have the same every day, as this is the number one thing that successful slimmers do.

Good luck!
thanks for the advice. I do plan to have more variety, I've got a tesco delivery coming tonight so that will help with meal planning :)
