    Hiya

    I'll look forward to hearing from others on this thread since I love the red plan and I also take a packed lunch to work.


    My favourites at the moment are cold meat salad and tuna salad (tuna and chopped spring oinions are lovely).

    For evening - I love omelettes - using chicken and bacon or shepards pie - using a mashed suede and carrot topping instead of mashed potato is really filling!


    I don't eat sausages - but using sausages in scambled eggs sound great!

    Hey I also struggle for Red days and have never done one but for tea could you use the sausages and use some potatoes cut up into wedges from your HEX? and then add beans? (not sure if these are free on red).

    do a massive quiche with whatever you like in it - bacon, ham, mushroom, etc. let it go cold, slice up and take some to work with a big salad.

    you could take cold boiled eggs to snack on too.

    I mainly stick to red days so I will give you some ideas:-

    Chicken covered with some BBQ sauce (2 syns) then covered with a HEXA cheese, then covered with bacon. Bake in the oven at 180 degrees for about 20 mins. Serve with HEXB of pot wedges or if you have used your HEXB's then salad.

    Chicken curry. Fry an onion in fry light. Then add some crushed garlic. When softened add about 3 tbsp mild curry powder and a little water. Cook gently for about 10 mins, adding a little bit of water so the spices don't catch. Then add about 4 tbsp passata to the consistency that you like your curry. If it's too strong, add some water. Then add the chicken and simmer until the chicken is cooked through.

    George Foreman southern style chicken breast served in a HEXB wholemeal roll. Served with salad or HEXB jacket pot.

    Mixed Grill. Chicken breast, gammon steak, rump steak, pork chop, sausage (1 syn) served with HEXB jacket pot or pot wedges and salad or veg.

    Gammon Steak and Eggs with HEXB Jack spud.

    Lunch Ideas:-

    Chicken cut into bite sized pieces or those Tesco Mini fillets (different flavours) Coated in some Tesco extra light mayo (1/2 syns per tbsp). Put in a seperate container to your salad so that the salad doesn't go limp. Combine when ready to eat.

    Prawn Mayo

    Same as above but with prawns.

    Tuna Salad. Mix a tin (or 2) of tuna with 2 tbsp extra light mayo. Mix. Then boil some eggs. When boiled cut into qtrs. Prepare your salad then add the eggs to the top. When ready to eat, mix the tuna with the salad.

    If you have access to a microwave this is lovely. Before work take a tin of Tesco stewing steak and put into a bowl. Add 1 tin of baby carrotts and 1 tin of green beans to the stewing steak, then mix. At lunch time, put the steak mixture into the microwave for about 4 mins until piping hot. Instant beef stew and it's lush!!

    I will add some more things later!

    i know you wanted lunch recipes, but here's a nice dinner one. this is so easy to make...


    sins = free on both days(if using cheese as h.extra)
    serves = 1


    ingrediants
    2 pack of large mushrooms
    half a leek
    half a small onion
    3 light laughin cow triangles*
    small pinch of low fat cheese*


    *count as one healthy extra 'a' choice


    1. turn oven on, remove stalks from mushrooms and lay on a baking tray open side up.
    2. finely chop the leek and blanch in pan of boiling water for a few minutes.
    3. finely chop the onion and mushroom stalks and fry in frylight until softened.
    4. drain the leeks and add to the onion.
    5. add the 3 cheese traingles and stir over a low heat so the cheese melts.
    6. fill the mushrooms with the mixture and put in the oven for around 10 minutes.
    7. top the mushrooms with the grated cheese and leave a few more minutes for the cheese to melt.

    serve these with a steak or chicken breast for a flippin' gorgeous meal :)

    it's really nice. it's a Harvester meal that i tried to make at home and it tastes very similar to their version :D ...and it's really quick and easy to make.

    i eat mine with a jacket potato and bbq sauce.

    On a red day I sometimes take tinned red salmon, cottage cheese and rivitas. It is surprising how filling it is, and tasty. I also take meat salads or maybe a fritata kind of thing with salad. If I am at home I also like corned beef mashed up with tomatoe puree and spread on brown bread and grilled.

    I always seem to lose more weight when I have more red days.

    sometimes I have 'free' lunches - neither green nor red! Cold cooked quorn sausages chopped up, boiled eggs and melon. All free on either day!
