    I make a noodle thing that I really love - heard it from a Weight Watchers class about four years ago.

    100g dry weight plain noodles
    75g frozen prawns
    about 200g tinned pineapple / juice (weight includes juice)
    about a quarter of a red pepper if you have it in (don't bother if not)
    2tbsp soy sauce

    Night Before:
    Cook the noodles and cool them
    Put prawns in fridge to thaw
    Put noodles in a tupperware with chopped up red pepper, chopped up pineapple, pineapple juice and soy sauce

    On the Day:
    Put prawns into the tupperware with everything else and give it a stir

    This makes a HUGE pile of it for 7.5 points.
    I know it sounds really weird (and I always feel freaky as it looks a bit peculiar to be eating cold noodles), but I love it and take it at least twice a week!

    My usual lunch is;

    Tesco Light Choice Cous Cous pot (hot water needed) for 3 points. A packet of WW crisps for 1, a Tesco Light choice cuppa soup (I got with the chicken noodle as it's the lowest pointed) for 0.5 and a pack of cherry tomatoes from Tesco and also a sugar free hartleys jelly.

    So 4.5 points for all that!

    I take smoked tuna, (John West 2.5 per tin) mixed with mayo and salad. Ainsley Harriot hot & sour soups are 0.5 for 2 sachets, nice with a sandwich. Moroccan couscous - roast some onion, courgette, mushrooms, tomatoes, peppers with moroccan spices and add to cooked couscous - delish. Pasta and prawns with a little sweet chilli sauce, red pepper, spring onion, low fat and tasty.
    Melba toast or bagel with extra light philly, shredded ham and cherry tomatoes.
    I hope this gives you some ideas x

    Don't know if it is something you'd fancy but the John West tuna light lunches are 3 points each and I think they are brilliant!
