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

Ryvita w/tuna or cottage cheese
Small tins of pasta shapes/beans
Soup
Loads of veggies chopped up and served with a really small amount of dip (make on yourself with low fat yoghurt and seasoning) or low fat hummus

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!

Need some lunch ideas!

That do not involve a sandwich....

I would really like to move away from having a sandwich at lunchtime but am really quite stuck at what to have.

What do you guys have for lunch?

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

ive at soup a couple of times this week with a few slices of ww bread! but ive found that it doesnt fill me up for long and im hungry in an hour or so!

on monday i had rice with chicken and a wee wee bit of curry. was filled up for hours!!!!!

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.

Was absolutely gorgeous! And didn't start to feel hungry til around half5 and I ate it at 12! Was great for only 7pp but do takes time! X
