    Hi, I am hoping some of you lovely people can help me. I'm trying to get my head around SW eating. Here is today's menu. My question is would this be classed as a green/red day?

    Breakfast - Branflakes and 200ml skimmed milk with a sliced banana. I know the milk is HEA, but I'm not sure how to count the branflakes.

    snack 1 apple 1 pear

    Lunch - 1 bowl of vegetable soup. I followed speed soup recipe, no added fat at all) and 1 tortilla wrap (4.5 fat/198 cals) with 1 tsp light mayo, 1 slice of full fat edam and salad.

    Dinner - steamed chicken breast, salad and 2 small new potatoes.

    If anyone can look at the menu and let me know how it works with SW and syns etc I'd be very grateful.

    Tracey

    Added some thoughts below

    I think I would probably have it as a red day and add on the syns for any extra cereal and the potatoes.

    I agree with Circes, although how about counting it as an Extra Easy day? Then your dinner would be free, but you would only be able to count one HeA and B. Also not sure whether or not the speed soup is free on a red day, it is free on Green and EE.

    Darn - you're right! I forgot all about the beans in the soup! Okay, so either Green or EE then

    Thank you ladies. That's been very helpful. I skipped the potatoes and just had chicken salad. Those syns sure creep up on you, don't they? 10 for a wrap was surprising but good to know. I had 6 tablespoons of branflakes - will actually weight them next time. Thank you so much.
