    If I want a Low point meal I tend to go for ready meals or for bolognese made with Quorn

    low point dinner ideas, if u have boiled potatoes is 3pts, fill up with loadsa veg which are 0, then u can have chicken breast or escalope cooked in the oven for a further 3pts and for a tspn of gravy granules is either 1 or 0.5pt whole meal is 6.5/7 points.....not bad for a dinner dinner lol

    also what ive noticed is that ryvittas are 0.5pt each, i have it along with laughing cow cheese spread which is 0.5pt per triangle (the low fat one) then put slced tomato and some salt and pepper on top....its lovely for a lunch and only amounts to 1pt per ryvitta so u cud have 2 or 3 of them.....thry very filling also

    not at all, i love escalopes, they often do them on offer in morrisons...
    i thought veg apart from greens was using points but obviously not...
    stir fry would only b the sauce and meat using points then!!! oh and noodles...

    if ur on the point plan then all yes alll veg are free and u can eat as much as u want too......have u seen any of the soup recipies, the point values are 0 for the entire pot of soup, and u can snack on this throughout the day without using any of ur points....also i find if ur trying to half your portion size if u eat a banana and a glass of sparkling water directly before ur dinner then u dont eat as much, goood way to cut on portion size....that was my biggest problem....just by cutting portion size this week i lost 6lb so its working lol

    Starchy veg have points - peas, sweetcorn, sweet potatoes and parsnips but as far as I know they are the only veg with points.

    I like to have a huge salad for tea in warm weather - iceberg lettuce, spring onions, baby tomatoes, diced sweet pepper - all 0 points. I have a tin of tuna with it (2 points) and waistline salad cream which is 0 points as long as you only have a dessertspoon of it which I find is plenty to mix with my tuna.

    Doesn't matter as long as in brine or spring water - not oil.
