    I normally just chuck my own stuff in to do a stir fry but running out of time today I purchased a mushroom pack from Sainsburys.

    Contents: Mushrooms, beansprouts, White cabbage, green cabbage, carrot and white onion. No sauce, no oil. 350g pack which by the time it cooks down is enough for 1 big filling lunch.

    But I worked its PPs out on my calculator and it comes to 6!!

    Is that correct and why?? I don't understand why veg is free but chopped up and put together it is lethal in the PP department!! :eek:

    Can anyone shed any light please? I may have to ditch forever one of my favourite low point meals! :confused:

    Dont bother working out pp for prepacked veg IF it has no sauce or oil in it. All foods have calories including veg. So even though they're 0 on WW, if you work out using NI, it might sometimes work out as a PP value. If it had no sauce or oil or anything but veg then it doesnt need to be counted.

    I totally agree! I use the frozen stir fry veg pack and never count them.

    I agree ladies, as long as the fruit or veg has no sauce or oil on it, it's FREE!! Don't panic. Your favourite meal is a guilt free one!! carry on as you are x

    Yes. Peas, parsnips, sweetcorn... A few things hon, they should be listed on the WW site I think. X
