Savoury rice (green)
salad (always a winner and REALLY boosted my loss last time)
Jacket pot with beans/tuna (as a Heb on green), quorn chilli (bulk cook) - anything pretty much!
My fave is pasta topped with baked beans & 42g rf cheddar :D


I usually have one of the following, when I am at work:

1) Savoury rice (Tesco chicken flavour) made up the night before - I really like it cold!
2) Pasta with roast veg and a tbsp red pesto
3) Smoked salmon with lettuce and baby plum tomatoes, a dollop of quark and fresh lemon juice
4) A jacket potato with beans (and maybe a v small portion of cheese)
5) Humous with chopped carrots, celery and cucumber, some grapes, and a sliced pitta bread

If I am at home I might have:

1) An omlette with baked beans
2) SW carbonara
3) Pasta in sauce

I like to have:
Beans or scrambled egg (or both) on toast;
Ham and cheese or tuna and cheese toasties (using frylight);
Ham and pineapple mixed with yogurt and put on a jacket potato;
BLT made with weight watchers bacon and extra light mayo;
Ham and cheese or ham and chicken sandwich;
Spaghetti hoops on toast;
Chicken and ham salad.

I try to have either a side salad made with speed foods with these or have speed food fruits in natural yoghurt for afters!!!

Hi my name is mary, How are you? I am a nutritionist and have a variety of lunch ideas ranging from egg whites, to whole wheat with a protein. The trick is to combine carbs and protein in every meal.. whats the occasion to lose weight?

Somewhere on the forum there's a post about microwave steamer bags. I haven't used them myself but have heard good things. If you're looking for easy work lunches and have a microwave then apparently you can fill these bags with just about anything and they cook them in just a few minutes. Try a search for them.

I don't go out to work personally but I can imagine that work lunches would be tricky to keep exciting!
