    Hi. I am really struggling for red day ideas for dinner that isn't a salad. I'm new to this and finding it quite hard but purely because of lack of ideas. Also coz i'm new to this I read other threads with recipes but struggle working out whether its a red or green recipe. Am I being really thick and stupid???

    Hi,

    Your not being thick or stupid at all. I struggled with red days the last time i did SW so now im rejoining, im sticking to Extra Easy days. The only thing i can think of that may be a quick tip, red tends to be meat based whereas green has limited meat.

    Have you tried reading one of the food diaries? Some folk on there do red regularly and they can maybe give you inspiration.

    Good luck

    bacon and tuna quiche is gorgeous for a red day.. i was a bit put off at first of the combo of tuna and bacon but it really works.. so nice and really filling.
    or you could make mini cheese and onion and bacon quiches they are nice...
    or how about making some home made soup with free veg and then having a cheese and ham toastie with it or somthing.. you dont have to stick to salad !!
