    potato is 1pt per 100g, and then you add points if you use any fat / oil to cook it with - i usually stick to jacket potatos - you can get packs of 4 baking potatos for about a pound or so and they usually work out around 2-3pts per potato.

    meat wise, chicken, turkey and quorn are much lower in points than beef etc.. if i remember correctly a 6oz beef sirloin (170g..ish) is around 5.5pts, but a medium chicken breast is only 2.5, and half a pack of quorn mince is 3, whereas a quarter of a pack of extra lean mince is probably more than that!

    Thanks for that! I Have some chicken breasts in fridge ill have that and some potato and loads of veg for dinner tomorrow.

    Are fried eggs higher in points than say a boiled egg?

    Also has anyone a really good recepie for the no point soup? I made some earler on but it dosn't taste that nice to be honest.

    if you fry your egg in fry light then no, but if you use oil you need to count the points for your oil.

    boiled egg, scrambled egg / omelette (made with water, no milk or butter) poached egg are all 1.5 per egg
