    Hi :wave_cry:

    I've been off this site (and SW) for a while now but back to basics after a shock when I climbed back on the scales last week!

    I want to try red days but I always end up hungry as I normally bulk my meals up with potatoes and pasta on green but obviously can't do the same on red!

    Please can you give me some meal ideas or point me in the direction of some recipes if possible!

    I find a good steak is the best red evening meal!

    Chicken wrapped in bacon with melted cheese a close second!

    On Red days I would normally have either...

    Chilli with ryvita (HE B) and Philadelphia (HE A)

    Bowl of chicken curry/jalfrezi with lots of chicken & veg

    Chicken breasts coated in Schwartz Chargrilled Seasoning with lots of veg (brocolli, B.sprouts, carrots, butternut squash etc and some gravy

    Chicken/ham salad

    Bolognese with Ryvita & Philadelphia

    Can't think of anything else at the minute :)

    We just ate beef in mushroom sauce which was out of the little book that came with this months mag. We had cabbage & mini corn on the cob with it. Oh & a slice of bread (wholemeal from a 400g loaf hexb) which was needed to mop up the yummy sauce. It was very filling & I didn't miss having any potatoes at all.
