    Ok so peas have got me confused now! I know that mushy peas have syns on red but are free on green right??? :( but what about normal peas, i have always assumed that they are free on whatever day? am I wrong?:confused:

    Ok....peas (all peas) are free on a Green and EE Day, but not on a Red.
    Green Beans are free on all.
    Broad beans are free on Green and EE day.

    Hope this helps.

    You can have 142g of garden peas as a HEX B on a red day.

    They aren't free, like all pulses, as they are very high in carbohydrate (green day fodder!)

    I always wondered why normal peas weren't free on red days. Now I know! Do you know why sweetcorn isn't free on red day, is it the same thing? :)

    Do you know what i'm annoyed about? Plantain. Free on green butnot red if it's a green plantain, when it gets to be ripe, it becomes syns. I like it ripe and squirted with frylight and roasted. SYNS! Grrrrrr...

    That's them! They look like fairy versions of corn on the cob- about the size of your finger.

    Lovely in stir fries, or used as a crudite with low syn/free dips
