    Would anyone know if there has been a thread on ideas for packed lunches?

    My OH has decided to join me doing SW and I've got to think of lunches I can pack him. He has no access to a micro or kettle and has to eat pretty lightly or he can't do his heavy work.

    Drawing a blank when I try to use the search facility (but I'm not to good with those at best of times. :eek: )

    I usually have pasta, rice or potato salad & just put any veggies I have in, eg tomatoes, peas, corn, peppers, then add some cheese or meat & seasoning.

    What would he normally have for lunch?

    At the moment he just has a sandwich with meat spread and a couple of biscuits. Sometimes he just has jam sandwiches, which he's addicted to. :rolleyes:

    I've said I'll do his lunches from now on and try to make them more healthy. He says he'll try anything I do so maybe a little pasta salad. :) That could be quite frugal, something we need to be at the moment.

    I take a packed lunch every day ... I have sandwiches (HEXB) with laughing cow triangles (part of HEXA1) & some smoked ham or chicken wafer thin meats (on a red day), I also have a muller light yogurt, a couple of bananas, 2 babybel lights (part of HEXA2) and if I'm on a long shift I take some quavers (4.5 syns) or a coco pops or rice krispie cereal bar (4 syns). That gives me plenty to spread throughout the day and I still have syns left for dinner when I get home xx

    I think I'll try to incorporate sandwiches into his lunches still on certain days. Like the idea of bananas and the cheese, too.

    I don't really know what laughing cow spread is like, I'm thinking like Primula?? I know he would eat that maybe with a tomato and some lettuce.

    Some good ideas, thank you. :)

    BTW Laughing Cow Light cheese triangles are much nicer than Primula - really cheesy and don't taste 'artificial'...X

    I eat loads of salads at work:
    Tuna and mayo
    Chicken and bacon - could add pasta on an EE day
    Salmon
    Ham
    I also take a flask with me sometimes with homemade soups..also just put water in it and he could have a mugshot or those new potnoodle (mugshot equiv).
    Fruit salads.
    Basically as long as he can take a cool bag and a flask, then anything is possible ;)
