    Well everyone, this is my first ever Red Day... I have been doing EE for 3 weeks and im kinda stuck.
    So I thought I would do Red today.
    Thing is.... we have a big family occasion tonight, the whole family (about 10 of us) are going out to a chinese.... :rolleyes:
    So, I was thinking if I get something like beef with mushrooms and boiled rice.
    Could anyone advise me if I take half the boiled rice away, would that be approx the size of a HEB.?

    Ok.. half a portion of boiled rice is 10 syns on red and a healthy b usually adds up to about 6 syns.. so i'd count it as 2 HEb's.

    And the beef in mushroom is only 4.5 syns (as is chicken in oyster sauce FYI) so looks like you'll be able to eat and feel virtuous too! :D

    Why not just have and EE day and then you can have rice/noodles and meat with no complications and syn in the sauce? If you have stuck to red all day you can still have an EE meal as long as you work out you HE's.

    oops, sorry debbie - i didn't even think about whenther you could have the rice as a HEb before i answered... just the syn value in relation to HE's :eek: sorry! :eek:

    if you're set on having a red day, then just syn the whole meal at 14.5 :) if you do another EE, you can have double the rice, and have the beef and mushroom and the whole thing would be 4.5 - either way you're a winner :D lol
