    Hi everyone

    Hope you are all doing well. Can you please give me some ideas for lunches that I can take to work? I have access to a fridge, microwave, kettle and toaster at work, but have to eat at my desk!

    Any ideas will be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi,

    I normally have a WW meal at work as they are yummy and cheap enough to buy in supermarkets. I love the chicken tikka and the chicken curry, and only 5 points. Also I sometimes have pasta mug pot shot thingy ma bobs lol dont know the name but their nice and not too bad in the points department either. I tend to stick to something simple sometimes a sandwich or micro meals not very adventurous im afraid but keeps you going til tea time! x

    my favourite is low fat pate on toast. :D

    Very filling and not too messy to eat at your desk.

    My fave at the moment is a WW tuna coronation sandwich. A tin of WW tuna with 4 slices of KM 50/50 bread and some diet flora. 4 sandwiches for 3.5 points :)

    I used to take 3 points worth of pasta with chopped onion, red peppers, tuna and a teaspoon of fat free dressing all in a sandwich box. Very filling.
