    I can only think of a tin of beans or spagetti with a wholemeal roll. Or mugshot with some diced veggies in.

    Some more:D what about buying some eggs & putting them in the microwave, serve with wholemeal bread or mugshot (I like mugshots:D) Or the Ainsley Harriott couscous qualitybrittany suggested.

    Or tin of fish with diced veggies, don't forget low fat yoghurt for desert :D

    They are with the packet soups & like a soup but with noodles or pasta in them. So quick & easy, not all are free the cheese one isn't & thai one isn't but I think the rest are free. I usually stick to the chicken or tomato ones as I know they are free.

    Worth a try, they're not too expensive either.

    I had one for the first time yesterday and i've gotta say i'm not too keen...
    They just taste like a less flavoured pot noodle...

    which flavour did you try? in our class we all rave about the orange ones - spicy sweet n sour they are lovely. What about some cooked chicken, ham or other meat for lunch with a jacket potato and tin peas? one of my fav lunches to bring to work is a pouch of basmati rice (2mins in microwave) and a tin of asda chickpea dhal which i put in mic for couple of mins. very filling and tasty.

    Just wanted to add that I had a Sweet n Sour Mugshot for the first time yesterday and it was yummy! I thought there would be more noodles in it though.
    I'm also wondering what to have for lunch today, but I only have access to a kettle. :(

    umm yeh relatively big! Because theres 2 other SW'ers in my office we used some of the tea money to go and buy a big pyrex bowl to put in the microwave!

    To be fair it never boils up as high as the bowl, or anywhere near that infact!...on the back of the pasta n sauce pack it says the bowl needs to have 4 1/2 litre volume but it doesn't really - especially if you keep an eye on it, all that could happen is that it may boil over.

    But the bowl has definitely been a worthy lunchtime investment for all of us anyway though! Couple squids from wilkos - and then pasta n sauces are about 60p?? bargain for lunch! xxx
