    Hi :) rejoining on Tues after a few years, always did green but curious about EE. In the fish&chips recipe in this months mag it shows peas but doesn't mention side salad. I didn't think peas could count as 1/3 ?

    You're right - peas aren't superfree because you have to syn them or use a HEXB on Red days. I think SW say that if there *is* a HEX in the meal somewhere then it sort of provides its own portion control so the 1/3rd rule isn't quite so vital for that meal - did they use a HEX of breadcrumbs as coating for the fish? (Sorry, haven't got magazine to hand right now!).

    I think they also say that sometimes it just doesn't *fit* to have 1/3rd superfree with every meal but you can have maybe a superfree soup as a starter (so you don't eat so much free food) or think about the 1/3rd rule averaged out during the day - so if you had another meal that 2/3rds superfree on the same day it would all even out in the end.

    That day's meal is pretty skimpy on the old SF :( - chopped spring onions with lunch and passata & puree in the ketchup with the fish. I can't see either actually constituting 1/3 or either meal!

    Breakfast is the only meal with a decent amount of SF.

    It's very confusing to newbies!

    They are not superfree but then the third superfree is only a recommendation and there will be some meals where you perhaps don't want to have any superfree :)
