What have you had to eat today?


Gold Member
I thought as well as the meal plan thread that a member started it would be useful to do a thread on this too, so that new members or older members can see what people are having on red, green or ee days and get ideas etc.

The format would be like this for example:

Type of day you had (i.e. red, green or extra easy)

Breakfast: ?????
Lunch: ????
Dinner: ?????
Snacks: ??????

(adding the syns and HE's in above where ever syns or HE's have been used)

and then lastly

syns total for the day = ?????

what do you reckon?

Here is mine for yesterday:

EE Day

Bacon Sandwich (HEb + 1 syn)
Cup of tea (0.5 syns)

Sweet Potato and Spinach Frittata (HEa) with barbecue chicken drumsticks (skin removed) and a mixed salad

Ginger and Garlic Prawns with Noodles (1 syn)

100 calorie cereal bar (5 syns) and 100 calorie popcorn (5 syns)

Total Syns: 12.5
