    Hi all,

    After falling off the wagon in my first week last night :eek: I thought it was time to start a food diary.

    Breakfast:

    Fresh melon and pineapple (bear in mind I didn't get up til nearly 11 - it was a heavy night in Swansea!)

    Lunch:

    2 small slices wholemeal bread toast (HexB)
    Scraping of countrylife spreadable butter (3.5 syns)
    Co-op reduced fat brussels pate (1 syn)
    Morrisons Chicken and sweetcorn cup a soup with croutons (5 syns)
    2 babybel light (part of HexA)
    Big salad with mixed leaves, tomatoes, cucumber, 1 tbsp Co-op reduced fat Thousand Island dressing (1 syn) - never again, yuk!

    Snacks:

    Packet of Walkers builder's breakfast crisps (6.5 syns)
    Co-op freshly squeezed orange juice ice lolly (2 syns)
    Melon
    Pineapple

    Supper:

    Chicken breast coated in a small amount of flour and paprika, cooked in a bit of olive oil and butter (approx 5 syns)
    Peas
    Butternut squash bacon risotto from the EE cook book (free on EE)
    Tiny amount of reduced fat cheddar grated (rest of HexA)

    Dessert:

    Strawberries
    Pineapple
    Grapes
    Fat free fromage frais with sweetener


    Wow!! That's loads and loads of food :(

    If anyone can help me with the syns values for the ones I don't know I'd be grateful, but I'm sure it's well over 15, eeeeks!

    Sian xx

    EDIT: Total syns - 18.5, oops!!
