    Hi. I have zero point tomato soup ( i put the recipe on the w.w recipes thread ). Sometimes i'll have sandwiches but i use the flora extra light butter, and i quite often have a small baked potato ( 3 points) with prawns. Welcome to minimins.xx

    hey,I would have 2 nimble slices of bread (half a point each) with no butter but a small tin of beans - works out at 3 1/2 points. Or John West do a thing called light lunches - its tuna with pasta and different sauces, they range from 3 to 3 1/2 points and are delicious..... the packaging kinda looks like cat food, but I promise its delicious! lol! I try to have biggish lunches though so I dont get hungry before dinner and snack!

    Today my lunch was a mixture of salad with some low fat coleslaw and thin slices of beef. Yesterday i had a prawn pasta with chopped up salad.
    I am also trying to stay away from sandwiches as i want to see if cutting out bread helps with my weightloss.

    I mostly have soups at lunchtime - either homemade or the weight watchers ones. I only make simple soups such as spicy veg or butternut squash as I dont have time to faff around with 2 small kiddies! Or, I have toasted pitta with low fat hoummus... If I'm out and about I tend to just have a sandwich though. cx

    Monday and Tuesday its normally home made soup made on Sunday. Wednesday and Thursday is normally whatever was for dinner on Tuesday (i make extra and make it something suitable to reheat). Friday I normally buy something so a Pret salad or a ready meal.

    I quite often have Ryvita Sesame crisp bread with laughing cow deli light blue cheese with sweet chilli sauce. It's delish and surprisingly filling.
    Or I make a salad and mix tuna Mayo in and have that with some Ryvitas.x

    My new fav lunch is 50g Cous Cous made with vegetable stock 5pp. I then chuck in loads of salad veggies. Cucumber, peppers, spring onion, tomato, radish.... Adore it! I might chuck in some chicken or a boiled egg next week to get some protein x

    Pasta salads are a life saver. When I make my tea at night, I have a pan boiling an extra portion of pasta which I leave to cool, and have for lunch the next day. I use the Asda Kids range of pasta, it's smaller pieces and seems to go further - 40g of this (dry weight) cooked and mixed with chopped peppers, cucumber, some chicken/quorn/tuna, and a squeeze of low fat salad cream or some ketchup - 7pp for a really filling lunch and it's way nicer than a sarnie..! :)

    I have home made point free soup or ww tinned soup with toast. melba toast with cottage cheese (i LOVE cottage cheese even when I'm not dieting) or Philadelphia Light.
    Sometimes I make a salad with ww cheese slices, some ham, some cottage cheese and kraft extra light garlic n herb dressing.

    finish with a ww yogurt and or fruit.

    I tend to low point during the day so I can have a bigger dinner and some evening treats which is when I struggle.

    Hello everyone - im going to nick lots of these lunch ideas :) I struggle at work too - no cooking or warming up facilities or canteen etc... Most days I have a wrap, the discovery multiseed ones are 5pp each but much bigger than the ww ones, I fill it full of babyleaf salad or pea shoots + some chicken, tuna or ham. Really filling and tasty.

    Tricia x

    Total weight loss = 7lbs gone for good
