    Hi Guys

    I have a bit of a problem and thought you might be able to give me some ideas...

    Every day for lunch a have a sandwich made of brown bread and thin slices of ham, i think its the bread but it leaves me feeling really lathargic! working at a desk all day it makes me just want to go to sleep....

    Was wondering if anyone could gives me some alternatives to eating bread for lunch? I have tried pasta but that seems to have the same affect...

    Problem is i dont really have access to a kitchen at lunch either!

    I like a wide range of food so am willing to try something different!

    Look forward to hearing some suggestions

    Thanks

    Linds xxxxx:D

    How about using wholemeal pitta or wraps, they are meant to be more low GI than bread, or so i was told.

    or how about cheese triangles on melba toast you can have quite a few for low points, six is 1point and a light cheese triangle is 0.5 so you could have 12 and 2 cheese for 3pts then a no point jelly.

    Melba toast is gorgeous. Normally near the crackers. I love it with cheese triangles on it

    Oh I love Melba toast... theres SO much eating in it considering the points.

    Love bagels too. My fave is Food Doctors seeded one that and a wee mini tub of Philly light is only 4 points :)

    Enjoy the dance classes linds. I used to love them but I can't do weight bearing exercise at all at the moment. I'm hoping that will improve once I've lost some weight.
