    I am hoping you can all help me out. My friend (Katdec21) is rejoining SW tomorrow night and needs some ideas for lunch. She doesn't have access to a fridge or microwave at work so that limits her a bit but she does have a kettle. My suggestions so far are:

    Mugshots
    Salads
    Sandwiches
    Alpen lights
    Snacks

    Any more suggestions please?!

    I always have a cold lunch....just prepared my one for tomorrow. Prawns with cottage cheese and salad and paprika. I usually take salad and meat of some sort. Today I had crab meat with cottage cheese, spring onion and red onion followed by mullerlight.

    Hope that helps some x

    Ditto! And it's easy enough to keep one in her desk or handbag :)

    I THINK they are exclusive to Tesco, but could be wrong. There's also a balsamic one, depending what she's into.

    tell her to invest in a wide neck flask, then she can have almost any thing and it keeps food nice and warm to.

    Super noodles to go are handy and very filling too.
    I quite often have chicken fillets cut into bite sized pieces with cherry tomatoes, beetroot, sweet red pepper and cottage cheese.

    How about one deseeded chilli, crushed garlic, juice of 1 lime and some soy sauce blended for a dressing?

    Cooked chicken is good too if cooked with seasonings, and Marks & Sparks do a lovely ready to eat honey roast salmon which is great for salads.

    Lentil soup in a flask with bread is filling and yogurt and fruit as snacks.

    That's the kind of things that keep me going. Hope this helps
