    Okay lifesavers = a tad overdramatic but these literally do really help me when i have been a fool and havent made ANY plans at all for lunch;

    Tesco Light Choices, Snack Pot, Sweet Chilli Prawns with Noodles, chilled 300g pot
    * 1½ Syns

    Marks & Spencer Count on Us, Creamy Prawn Pasta Salad 290g pack
    * 4½ Syns

    Marks & Spencer King Prawn & Noodle Salad 370g pack
    * 3½ Syns

    Marks & Spencer Carrot & Bulgar Wheat Salad in a Coriander Dressing, Less Than 5% Fat 210g pack
    * 3½ Syns

    Boots Shapers, Honey & Mustard Chicken Pasta Salad 252g pot
    * 4½ Syns

    (all on EE)

    obviously preparing my own free (and much fresher) lunch is prefereable but im just not that good sometimes :p

    hope these help a bit :)

    These are good thanks, as sometimes caught on the hop it can be awkward trying to work out whats free and low syn, and whats not. As I discovered to my 19 syn salad a couple of weeks back.

    oooo new find! - Marks & Spencer sweet chilli prawn wraps and mango salad wraps

    only 30 calories for the whole six pieces and sooo yummy!

    basically you get 6 sushi sized pieces
    there are 3 with prawns veg and 3 with mango salad.

    the trick is that they are not "wraps" in the sense you might think. they are actually wrapped in a thin slice of japanese raddish but this actually makes them really crunchy and fresh. you also get a teeny bit of lovely runny sweet chilli sauce to dip.

    GUSTO AND GLEE: SNACK ATTACK: Marks and Spencer Salad Wraps

    all this included for:
    30 calories
    2.4g protein
    5.1g carbs &
    0.2g fat

    which makes them a measely 1.5 syns usuing the syn calculator (without selecting free food) however all of the ingredients are technically free food on EE apart from the sweet chilli sauce so the syns are possibly even less :D

    dont get me wrong this isnt really enough for lunch and is more of a snack but is very good for mid morning munchies

    anyone have any other low syn grab & go faves?

    Might have to make a note of these. I was caught out by a not so healthy choice in M&S the other day when I didnt plan properly. What I thought would be light in Syns turned out to be 15.5 syns:eek:
