    Hi Jen, I find it easier to stick with just a sandwich and mullerlight or fruit for lunch and have a cooked meal in the evening, Then i dont need to decide on red or green day till tea time :D

    good idea. i never even think about having a sandwich because my brain works in terms of free food all the time!
    what do you have in yours?

    I used to love taking my green day foods into work!

    I would take in a bowl of pasta mixed with pulses, peas and vegan mayonnaise.

    Ryvitas and low fat cottage cheese.

    Quinoa mixed with lots of chopped cucumber and salad.

    Wholemeal sandwich made with 28g grated cheese and salad.

    Fresh fruit and low fat yogurts.

    Actually SW is so easy it's a question of what NOT to take in!!

    :)

    Cous cous is lush. And you can do so much with it to jazz it up. Garlic is great (but maybe not so great at work!!!). Lots of chopped salad mixed with the cous cous, fresh herbs and seasoning. Absolutely delicious and very, very feeling.

    hey jen!

    i used to have tuna and sweetcorn pasta using tuna as a B choice, or a cheese butty.

    i'm on WW at the moment but really missing SW, have managed to stay within my points for 3 days now though (LOL)

    Snaily. x

    I too found SW with unlimited easy to follow, I know that I will be returning to it after CDing. :D

    I also found it easier to cook extra at dinnertime and carry it in for lunch the following day, it was like having two different meals a day, and that evening it would be something different. Only at the weekend it differed.

    I hope you got many ideas.

    I can't wait to get back to SW.

    It's always great to make extra pasta for dinner and take it into work the next day if you are doing Green. You can add lots of pulses and really make it a totally free meal (and very filling!!).

    bachelors savoury rice is free on a green day, i used to take that and either eat it cold or heat it up in the microwave, sometimes used bread as my b choice and made savoury rice butties with it aswell lol.


    jen - ww is going well surprisingly, never worked for me before but lost 2lb so far i think, had a treat last night but ive been sticking to my points which is amazing lol. we'll see, i'll give it a bit longer. really wanna do sw but this seems to be going ok at the moment!!
