Hi Mrs V,

Green not to bad at the mo. I was not looking forward to it as I'm basically a carnivore, but OK so far and going to buy some Quorn on the way home - not something I relish, but have heard and read mixed opinions - only one way to find out.

I'll post my menu later and perhaps you could let me know what you think when you have a mo ;-)
Day 2 Green

Hard going this evening - do not like quorn!

Milk (Hex)

Fruit, 0% Yog, Cereal (Hex)

Salad with Sweetcorn
Chicken (Hex)
2 x Rye Crispbread (3 syns)

Snacks - Banana, Grapes, 2 x Dried Apricots (1.5 syns)

Potatoes and Veg from last night plus onion, roasted in oven with Frylight
1 1/2 Quorn Lamb Grills (rest in bin)

Sorry to say I did not enjoy the quorn - should I persevere with it?

Feel very full and not like I'm dieting at all - can't be right, can it?

I'm already dreading WI on Tuesday, and I'm away for the day/night on Saturday - any tips on how to try to minimise damage?

Any advice welcome :)

Saturday and Sunday are right offs, as away for weekend. Didn't eat to much, but totally off plan. And drank way to much, but cest la vie ! Back to the grind stone Monday.
Thats the way it sometimes works out Hun....you have to live too!! Lol.
Quorn is an acquired taste I think....I find that the sausages are ok as the mince (although mince needs loads of flavour), but the pieces I just gag with! urgh!

Soya Bean Salad :sigh:

1 tbsp Ex Lite Mayo - 1 syn

Chick Pea and Carrot Curry - lovely :D recipe of the SW lifeline website

Not a bad day for a green day which I struggle with a bit. Definately giving up on the Quorn -just find it disgusting. But if I can find more recipes like this curry then not a prob! I'm going to look through the recipes on this forum, my old SW mags, and going to see if they have any decent books at club tonight.

First WI and feel quite confident at the mo - fingers crossed :scale:
Asda do a really lovely tinned chickpea curry for 3.5 syns...I heat it up and have boiled rice for lunch on a Green Day...its delicious!! Also, Asda ratatouille in a tin is 1 syn and thats lovely with some plain pasta and an allowance of cheese.
Hope this helps?!
Thanks for the advice - any tips are always welcome.

Well - first WI and I lost 4lbs - Yippee! Quite pleased after the Sat/Sun right offs.
