Thank you! :)

Yesterday I didn't manage to have a lot because I was in hospital having teeth pulled, so all I had was some weetabix for breakfast, then some mashed potato and butter for supper about 8pm. I was told not to eat anything after 7.30am and then after the surgery I couldn't move my mouth very well, so mash and butter it was when I got hungry. I did make sure I drank plenty though.

So the next couple of days, I'm not sure how on plan I'm going to be, would this pass as a green day? I know I can't eat enough veg or fruit to be an EE day.

Sat 11th

Breakfast: 1 weetabix with milk

Lunch: tinned spaghetti and mashed potato

Tea: scrambled egg w/ cheese & ketchup

Supper: 1 weetabix mixed with remaining HEA milk.

snacks: 2 glasses of apple juice (5 syns)
Sun 12th (still having issues getting larger food items or chewy things in)

Breakfast: scrambled egg and a few slices of tomato
Lunch: vegetable soup x2
Tea: packet pasta

Syns: 1 packet of skips (4)
