(Lorraine, if this should be in slimming recipes then please move!)

I am having to do a red day again today (Slimming World). I have found that unless I alternate I dont lose weight. I hate red days. All the things I would like to cook require rice/pasta and as I cant get wholegrain that means using syns and I like to save them for things like glasses of wine (especially at the weekends). Casseroles are fine but we eat our main meal at lunchtime and I cant get a casserole done in the timeframe, nor any of those 'marianate for 6 hours' type reicpes.

Does anybody have any red day main meals that are a)syn free or low syn b) dont require swede (which I cant get) or those bowyers sausages (that I also cant get) and c) can be got on the table in an hour or less.

what does anyone else eat for main meals on red? Green is easy, just by cutting down the meat portion and substituting 0% fat yoghurt I can eat virtually normally. Reds are the nightmare.

I would be very grateful if anyone has any suggestions

First off, Maria I would say it's hard to cook a meat meal in an hour, although you could have chops with veg. Egg, bacon, mushrooms is also something I like.

Cooking the night before if you have time would be good. The SW cottage pie is lovely, although it does have a swede topping, but you could just have the mince on its own. Curries are something else that could be done. Or, cook when you have time and freeze portions.

But....the good news now Mr Green Try the new Extra Easy plan. Mr Green It would probably suit you down to the ground. You can eat your red and green foods together, but you only have ONE HEA and ONE HEB.

This means that say for example, you made the SW cottage pie, you could have mashed pot's on the top. If you want chops with veg and potatoes you can have them.

If you do a pasta dish, you can pop some chicken or bacon or something in to it.

It can take a bit of grasping, but I can most certainly help you. Also, here is a link to a SW forum I am on. They are most helpful, and there's loads of recipes for you to look at. Everyone is following the SW plan but many are going it alone with no group to go to.

My user name is Llew, so why not come take a peek and if you like what you see, introduce yourself. Mr Green It will certainly help you with inspiration. You must join and post a few times to enter the recipe thread though and you won't be able to send pm's yet either.

Meanwhile, I'll root out some red recipes for you and try and post them up today for you.

Oh thank you so much Lorraine, I will do that.

I dont think i could do extra easy though because my morning cereal and milk in tea all day use both my HEA and B at the outset.

Well, your cereal is one B and your milk is one A, so you'd be fine for EE. If you wanted anything else later, then you could snack on the free food or syn it if you have syns left.

It really might be worth having a go, Maria. You might be surprised and if it didn't suit, just go back to red and green.

Hmm, Im skeptical as to whether I would lose on EE.... I mean thats not much different to how I normally eat. I have been to the forum and will continue trying but at the moment it wont let me register - keeps saying it doesnt accept people who are more than 99 years old!!! (i am putting in my birth date as 1964!). Will try again later.

are you doing EE or red and green?

I have several books too including a RED one. I'll have a look to see what there is.

Tuna Quiche is a fave of mine. Very easy and yummy.
