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 !!


One day at a time, one step at a time
