    Hi everyone

    Can we please help eachother, by adding breakfast and lunch ideas. I really struggle to think of things for breakfast other than cereal, and I would love some new ideas for lunches that can be eaten at work.

    Thanks in advance

    That's what I tend to do Louise, stick to the same thing all the time.

    I think I just need to plan my meals properly. I suppose with the raise in the cost of everything, we wont be able to afford to eat soon, and we'll all be slim!

    Couscous is a good thing to make, and is really filling.

    I nearly ALWAYS have mushrooms on toast with cherry tomatoes for brekkie, its the only thing that fills me up until lunchtime, otherwise im picking by 10am.

    Lunch i dont really plan, sometimes if im busy i will just have a bag of crisps and some fruit and if im busy i dont notice its not much, if im sitting down to eat i try and have sandwhich or some pasta with WW tuna mayo because dinner is where i spend loads of points. Tonight im hvainf pasta carbonara with mushrooms, new potatoes and salad. ( its yummy )

    I always have the same lunches but they are yummy... try to go carb free at lunch too as I end up sleepy in the afternoon.
    These are my favourites:
    * Houmous (3) with carrot, pepper, celery sticks - maybe an oat cake (1) if I need some carbs - only 3/4 points if you get low fat one and have a third of the tub
    * Greek salad - feta cheese (3), few olives (2), salad (0), seeds (.5) and beetroot(0) - and its huge so keeps you full til dinner!
    * Wraps - houmous and sliced pepper with salad (not sure what points a wrap is as I only started yesterday and haven't had it yet!) :)

    Do you use low cal spray to make your mushrooms? Is it worth getting some? Which spray is the best and where do I buy it? Thanks x

    I just had a dilemma.... went to gym before work and did 20 min run then hour of weights - so I gained 4 points for the day... then I get into work and there's Krispy Kremes in the kitchen!!
    So I googled 'Krispy Kreme Weight Watchers' and they're 4 points each!!!
    So do I have the doughnut and waste my efforts of having to get up at 5am to go to the gym or do I be good...... hmmmm..... be good and save the points for a G&T tonight! Ha! x

    I use the frylite for my mushrooms, its only about £1.50 ish and tbh i dont point that cos you only need a few sprays to stop them sticking in the pan and then a few sprays midway through if you want to.

    Thank you - will def get some LF spray.

    Can I ask which museli people have and how many points. I really fancy some but it all seems really high points to me.

    thank you

    I did make a great 2 point sandwich! I use crusts away (kingsmill) bread which is only .5 and a time of ww tuna mayo which is 1 point and loads of cucumber in it. Was delicious and I can't believe only 2 points... I am loving ww
