    Parsnips and sweet potato are not free or broad beans.
    Butternut and other squashes are free though.
    Don't forget you can have peas, sweetcorn, potatoes etc as a B choice on red though.

    Of course if you are starting again - if you havent been for a while you might not know about Extra Easy when you can have the lot!

    Butternut squash being free on all plans was my saviour when trying a few success express days

    Its another plan that SW use - generally on quite a low key basis - in my group my consultant tends to hand out the leaflet if people have been stuck for a few weeks. Its really restrictive - basically 2/3 superfree each meal, syn at the higher value of red or green, syn everything that isnt part of your main course/main meal (eg smoked salmon starter you would syn like its a green day), only snack on superfree

    there's loads of threads on it if you use the minimins search engine - there's even still a thread on page 1 I think

    baked beans and spagetti hoops arent free on a red day.. I didn't realise about the peas and sweetcorn until I sat down trying to work out what to have with my stuffed chicken wrapped in bacon on tuesday night! blimming nightmare, ended up with plum tomatoes

    I don't class baked beans or spaghetti hoops as veg ;-)
    However, I have tinned tomatoes with pretty much everything. Luckily I love them! On a red day i'll have salmon or chicken with some veg and topped with tinned tomatoes. Mmm, idea for tomorrow!

    Tinned tomatoes - Love them, have them with brekkie, in soup, in mince, on toast. They are rivalled only by beans in my food affection list :D

    Totally off topic - sorry :eek:
