Hey Honey
Your meals list looks great and has given me a few ideas :)
Do you always have green weeks or alternate?
This is day 6 for me on SW and so far I have been having green days every day!

I am vegetarian so always Green days for me ( i do eat fish so have fish as a HEB on those days.) Hubby does eat meat, but only has 1 red day a week, with our budget and me being a veggie its easier to have 6 green and 1 red. he'll often have a small amount of meat as a HEB on a green ( stir fry day he's having chicken, i'm having quorn)

#Shell_y - I have breakfast too, but that is always the same, Cereal and half my A on milk ( I use 1 HEA every other day for milk and then use the other day's HEA on recipes etc.)


Always comes back to MMs!
Great planning! Well done you xxxx
Sounds good.

Just a question though, which cheese sauce packet do you use? For 4 syns I need to know, had such a faff making one this weekend for a fish pie!!!

#chicaloca - i am using the schwartz packet mix cheese sauce ( whole packet is 8syns split between myself and hubby = 4syns each) I havent used it before so will let you know if its worth it! I miss lasagne, have tried the SW versions with egg/fromage frais sauce but just yuk! am hoping this will work :)

My weekly chart i have on the cupboard door. any gaps are to be used on whatever i fancy :) and what ever syns are left (I stick to 10)

Thanks Honey!

You do know you can have two Hexa choices when doing Green or Red days, right?


Silver Member
Yeah i know, i am still following the plan from years ago when you could only have 1 HEA......... BUT things like cheesey mugshots and tinned macaroni cheese and batchelors macaroni cheese packet pasta were all free, now they have a syn value becasue of 2 HEA's. (i still think of syns and SINS, which is what they were before) so i stick to that, worked for me, but if i know i haven't had anything like that i don't stress about a bit of extra milk or cheese. I am at target now and working out how to maintain!


Just doing it this time
wow, how organised are you. I'd just never keep to it - and my DD would eat something I got in for 'us' - DH & Me doing SW together, whilst I was at work and throw out my plan altogether !

Incidentally I make a lasagne without the creamy cheesey-saucey thingummy. Just make a lot of tinned tomatoe and veg and layer that over the lasagne sheets - cover with tin foil so the sauce penetrates the sheets and then for the last 10 minutes sprinkle on your HEA cheese for the day and pop back in the oven for the last 10 mins.
