The chips and wedges are easy to make.

With the chips I cut potatoes into chips, part boil for a few mins and then drain and dry them.

Put fry light on baking tray, add chips season with salt and spray a little more spray light on then bake them.

For wedges I bake a couple of pots in the microwave for a few mins, they need to still be firm. Cut into wedges and spray fry light on. (I've found that spraying fry light on the counter and then rubbing it in works best. Then season and coat in spices. I use a fajita powder. I have that if you stand the wedges up on their skin side works better for even coverage whilst baking:)

Yeah boil in a pan for about 7 mins, but keep checking with a fork as you don't want to over cook them. It takes about 25 mins in my oven. Again keep an eye on them. Cook until crispy

I thought you could have pitta as an hex?
no, if you look in your SW book it says 57g any wholemeal EXCEPT pitta. i thought the same about brie and just found out i have been counting it as my healthy A and its a whopping 4.5 syns for 28g

i used to par boil my chips/wedges, but i'm impatient, so now i cut my chips/potato wedges up and microwave them for 4-6 minutes then throw them in the oven - they only take 10-15 minutes that way :D
