    Really enjoyed my green day today! Everything I made was delicious and I enjoyed my lovely syns too: I broke a big bar of Galaxy choc into squares and froze it. Squares worked out at 2.5 syns for two: I had 10 squares throughout the day, and because they were frozen they lasted longer.

    Breakfast
    Latte made with 200ml skimmed milk (HEA with the other 150ml used in coffee throughout the day)
    Banana
    Hifi bar (HEB)

    Lunch
    "Orange soup" (made with veg which needed using up, roasted in Fry Light and then whizzed with stock: small butternut squash, small pumpkin, sweet potato, carrot, fresh ginger, garlic, red onion, with pearl barley, macaroni and lentils added at the end to make it chunky)
    Wholemeal roll (HEB)
    Two WeightWatchers fruit yogurts
    Hartleys jelly pot (0.5 syns)

    Tea
    Quorn spaghetti bolognese (Quorn mince, courgettes, carrots, green beans, onion, garlic, passata, herbs, spaghetti)
    HEA choice cheese in two parts (three Laughing Cow Extra Light cheese triangles mixed in with the bolognese sauce and 21g of low fat cheddar on top)
    Mixed fruit salad with WeightWatchers peach yogurt on top (overdone the yogurts a bit today!)

    Snacks
    2 x Ryvita crackerbreads with Quorn ham on top (2 syns)
    10 squares Galaxy choc from a 125g bar (12.5 syns)
    Plum

    Total: 15 syns

    Your food diary looks great to me hun. I do tend to have more veg/salad with my lunch/dinner though but it's good to see you are having some good variety of free foods. xxx

    Thanks for the feedback guys! I am really enjoying it so far - which just makes me paranoid I can't be losing weight! But we will see after my WI on Monday.

    MrsWilsoncroft: I think I do eat a fair amount of veg, I usually have salad or other superfree veg with lunch and tea, but yesterday I put loads in the soup (two squashes, large carrot, large onion) and in the spag bol (two courgettes, a large carrot, large onion, tin of green beans and carton of passata) so I didn't have any on the side. Normally I would have more fruit too, but I've managed to eat it all (and I bought loads during my shop at the weekend!).

    Ok, well today was another Green day, mostly eating up yesterday's leftovers so not much different. Going to do some EE later this week I think, and treat myself to a bit of fish (only meat I eat).

    Breakfast
    28g Ready Brek (HEB)
    150ml skimmed milk (HEA, with rest in coffee throughout the day)
    Sliced banana and handful of blueberries on top
    Ryvita with cottage cheese and Quorn ham slice on top

    Lunch
    More "orange soup"
    Wholemeal bread roll (HEB)
    Half a pack of frozen Tesco fruit salad with a WeightWatchers yogurt on top
    Hartleys jelly pot (0.5 syns)

    Tea
    Quorn spag bol (today I used half white, half wholewheat spag for extra fibre. Not as nice as yesterday as managed to burn sauce while reheating!)
    42g low-fat cheese (HEA)

    Snacks
    Homemade houmous with couscous and carrot sticks (made it a bit watery so stirred in some couscous soaked in stock to thicken it)
    2 squares Galaxy choc (2.5 syns)

    Total: 3 syns

    Snack attack today! Not much fruit in so had to improvise.
    Orange soup with bread roll (HEB - got hungry mid-morning so finished off rest of my soup from two days ago)

    10 squares of Galaxy (12.5 syns - starting to regret ever buying this now, far too moreish!)
    175ml dry white wine (6 syns)

    Extra Easy today, just for a change!

    Breakfast
    2 x Alpen Light bars (HEB)
    Huuuuge fruit salad that kept me full for ages (melon balls, kiwi balls, strawberries, grapes, banana, clementine)
    WeightWatchers strawberry tart yogurt on top

    Lunch
    Vegetable and ginger soup (In this were carrots, onions, potato, sweet potato, courgette)
    Portion of leftover curry and rice
    Handful of grapes with low-fat natural yogurt on top, served in the scooped-out melon shell I balled earlier

    Tea
    2 x salmon fillets
    Parsley sauce from a SW recipe in the Super Saucy book (2 syns for a double helping)
    New potatoes
    Green beans
    Veg roasted with fresh rosemary (aubergine, courgette, parsnip - not superfree I know so had less of it)

    Snacks
    350ml skimmed milk in coffee and tea (HEA)
    2 x squares of Galaxy (2.5 syns)
    White wine (6 syns for one 175ml glass - so far!)
