    Hi all

    I feel like I am really stuck about what to take for my lunches at work apart from salad. We get 30 minutes and only have a kettle and a microwave and I could really do with something warm but I could do with something that will be different from tea.

    At present I do think I am eating too much cheese and eggs and bacon.

    Any help would be most appreciated. Many thanks.

    If I'm being legal, as like now, an omelette and salad or in the veggie Cafe the 3 cheese and spinach melt.

    When I'm not on induction, depending on the weather stew, casserole, Sheppard's pie. Maybe even fish and chips Vicky. On maint, lunch has become my carby meal really.

    Thanks Jim - the 3 cheese cheese and spinach melt sounds nice - any idea how they make it?
    Do you not get carb cravings in the evenings after eating them at lunch Jim?

    I get the carb cravings if I eat more than the one carby meal in a day yes, but not just when I have lunch.

    The melt comes in one of those small earthen ware bowls, can't remember what they are called. seems they just fill it with spinach, put the cheeses on top and pop in the oven Vicky.
