Serves 2 (as a main)

We show you whether a food is de­signed to be a be­tween-meals snack, break­fast, lunch (a lighter main) or din­ner (the main meal of the day). When we say, “as an oc­ca­sional dish”, it should only be eaten as a treat, such as once a fort­night.

Brand names

We some­times use prod­uct names so it’s easy for you to find nu­tri­tion­ally suit­able brands when shop­ping.

Op­tional in­gre­di­ents

When­ever we list an in­gre­di­ent as op­tional, it isn’t in­cluded in the nu­tri­tion anal­y­sis and it’s up to you if you want to use it.

Sugar or sugar sub­sti­tute

In some dishes, you can use ei­ther sugar or a sugar sub­sti­tute. In these cases, we give you the nu­tri­tion anal­y­sis for both.

Choice of in­gre­di­ents

When we give you the choice of two dif­fer­ent in­gre­di­ents, we an­a­lyse only the first one.

Carb ex­changes

Us­ing ex­changes makes count­ing your carbs eas­ier: one ex­change = 15g of carbs. Aim for 1-2 ex­changes in ev­ery snack and 1-4 ex­changes in each meal.
