Packed lunch ideas?


One day at a time
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: )

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
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 ;)
