    I'm going self-catering in a few weeks and need tips as to what food to pack. I know it shouldn't be any different to things I eat when at home but I need quick and easy meals, filling snacks and things that don't use many pans!

    Ideas welcomed :) Thanks in advance!

    something quick that i like is ainsley harriot flavoured cous cous - i only like the spicey one though. just pour in hot water and leave for 4 minutes! its 0.5 syns for a 100g pack - i have it with salad and its lovely. Pasta and pasta sauces are easy. if you used tinned toms and spices, you can make ur own free pasta sauce.

    Thanks for the ideas so far! I'm going to do a menu for the week so I know where I am and what I'm doing :D

    Thanks to those who mentioned Fry Light, I would have forgotten that!

    Staying in a place that's about 20 miles from shops so want to try to take as much as we can as I don't fancy getting the car out for a 40 mile round trip just for a small (but essential) item, as that might make me stock up on chocolate too, and I don't want to do that :p

    I'm going to try to surprise myself and lose weight while I'm on holiday. Let's hope I'm as positive about that in a few weeks' time!!

    Thanks again, more ideas welcome :D

    as they say if you fail to plan you plan to fail but you have over come this by planning the menu and the thing is if you cant get hold of non free food you cant be tempted I am sure you will come back light than you went x

    Thank you northenlass for your positive post :)

    Lianna, I'm staying in the UK, but if you're going abroad, have a look at that particular country's embassy website and you should find information as to what you can take and what you can't :)
