    Hey all,

    I've been unnoficially on slimming world for 2 weeks and loving it so far. The first week was brilliant but the second week has been much tougher due to a change in work patterns. I do security and I am currently moving to a different sector. I spent this week doing 12 - 16 hour shifts over night in my car so it completely messed up my routine of slimming world.

    Does anyone have any simple grab-and-go meals to prepare that don't need any further cooking? Ended up buying a sandwich in the garage due to this, don't want to get back on that track again lol.

    Why not take pasta salads, rice, lots of fruit, soups in a flask?

    Batchelors pasta 'n' sauce are also nice cold. Plenty of fruit cut up ready to munch and jellies. If you need a sandwich make your own using your hex b.

    Yeah, i think prep is the key!! For any situation... i work in an office, with lots of shops and cafe and restaurants on campus... which are very handy, but not necessarily that great when you are trying to be "good".

    I spend most of my spare time preparing food for the next day. I'm running out of tupperware stuff now - I bring my breakfast, lunch and snacks with me... and that means planning!!

    Pasta salad is always a good bet. Filling and can be eaten cold. You can have another container full of salad stuff. And fresh fruit. Flask of coffee is always a good idea - have a Hi Fi bar as a snack!!

    I'm sure you'll be ok! Have a look at the recipe section on the SW website... I looked last night - I had loads of ideas.

    Good luck.

    Have a look through the recipe section on the Slimming World website for more ideas, these are the ones which spring to mind. These are very egg heavy but-

    SW Tortilla- (lovely with red peppers and mushrooms added too)- Onion and potato tortilla - Recipes - Slimming World

    SW Quiche (You can use any veg, I love it with onions, smoked bacon, mushrooms and tomatoes) - Speedy quiche - Recipes - Slimming World

    Egg wraps- (using the thin omelette as a wrap, you can put anything in them) - http://slimmerblog.co.uk/recipes/vegetarian-dishes/egg-wraps/

    Creamy pasta (with salad)- Garlic mushroom tagliatelle - Recipes - Slimming World

    All of them are lovely served cold with salad, you could prepare them a couple of days in advance, keep in the fridge ready to pack and run when you're working. :)
