    Im planning my menu for week 1 and i have read my book and understand i need to fill my plate with 1/3 Superfree foods on EE but are Superspeed foods counted as SF ??

    For example if i have a jacket potatoes and beans and mix some mushrooms and onions in is this classed as an ok meal or would i need to add some more SF foods ??

    i think i have overdosed on the phrase SF and SS and managed to confuse myself!!!

    thanks

    Superspeed and superfree are two different things, so the answer is not necessarily. Your superfree foods are those fruit and veg that are free on both red and green days, so everything except potatoes, peas, parsnips and sweetcorn.

    As long as the amount of mushrooms and onions you had came to 1/3 of the plate, then yes, that would be enough :) Maybe have some salad as well if you're a bit worried about it? xxx

    EE is confusing hun, so don't worry about it! That's what we're all here for :) Alternatively, if you don't want veg with your beans and spud, why not leave some space on your plate and have some fruit afterwards? xxx

    i often just have a plain sarnie or a jacket spud with beans and then have a thirds worth of fruit with it. I dont really like the idea of salad with baked beans (hadnt thought of mushrooms tho!) xxx

    .....and plenty others! Things that come to mind which are NOT super free are - broad beans, kidney beans (most beans, really), avocado, parsnips, chickpeas...there may well be more, these are only ones that I eat regularly and have to keep in mind are FREE not superfree.
