    What sort of meals do you have on green days? I don't want a massive carb overload. Do you still need the 1/3 superfree, like with EE? Any ideas would be very much appreciated, thank you!

    Esme Gin and tonic please!

    Being a veggie I love my green days, they are mainly carb-based though!

    I love curries but if I want to cut down on the carbs a bit I halve the rice amount I would usually have and have a mound of steamed spinach with it, and some yogurt/cucumber/mint dip.

    Also lower carb options are stir fries with tofu, or potato skins with the insides scooped out loaded with yummy free things and topped with cheese, served with salad. You can freeze and save the potato for making potato cakes when you get those carb urges :D

    I also make tons of soup for lunches, which is great to keep in the freezer when I'm feeling lazy.

    Also casseroles! Bung in loads of root veg and pulses with a can of tomatoes, add some herbs, ta-dah.

    Thank you, everyone. :)

    Do you lose well on green days, if you don't mind me asking?

    I'm not the best person to look at really, I tend to lose a chunk (4/6lbs) then put on a pound, then lose a chunk etc, I'm so damn unpredictable! Red days are meant to be faster but I'm happy with the way I am going.
    I have started adding a few EE days however, which I love.

    I'm veggie and love my green days. Although SW don't specifically say to have 1/3 superfree I think it is a good habit and would recommend doing it whatever plan you are following.

    In terms of meals, the world is your oyster but some favourites are:
    • chilli - quorn, vegetable or bean versions with rice or baked potato
    • curry - quorn or vegetable, chinese, indian and thai varieties
    • lentil dahl
    • risotto- lots of different versions
    • moroccan vegetables with cous cous
    • moussaka
    • mediterranean pasta bake
    • mixed mushroom pasta bake
    • meatfree meatballs with spaghetti
    • pasta with numerous sauces
    • canneloni or lasagne
    • tortilla
    • ratatouille
    • jambalaya
    It's worthwhile looking at recipe sites and books for inspiration as a lot of recipes can be made SW friendly :)

    I love green days. Tend to eat veg curries, quorn bolognese, jacket potatoes, quorn cottage pie, pasta dishes etc. I have a lot of carb based meals tbh and so far weight loss has been good, apart from over Christmas.

    Good luck x

    Butternut squash and red lentil curry s a fave of mine. I'm a real red day meat eater, but have to make an exception for this ocassionally.

    I've been on green days only since I began in September last year and have lost over 3.5 stone doing it so yes green days are good.

    My favourite dinners are:

    Quorn balti
    spaghetti carbonara
    sweet potato hash
    quorn chow mein
    gammon (or Quorn sausage), egg, chips, beans
    Quorn madras
    Quorn shepherd's pie
    sausage and bean casserole

    although I would probably just have the Quorn balti every day if I had my way lol

    Mugshots are free on green days, if you have the noodle ones. The pasta ones are low syn.

    I prefer the one in the orange colour pack not sure what flavour it is!
