    Hey guys,

    I started Slimmingworld on wednesday this week, already on my scales I have lost 7lbs :O Its a major diet change though compared to what I was eating before, I am struggling within lunchtimes though are there any good ideas? I just seem to be eating sushi - 2/3syns and lots and lots of chicken..

    Hi and Welcome! :)
    7lbs is great! Well done!

    What kinds of foods do you like? I tend to do sandwiches for lunch using Healthy Extra B, salads are good for a quick lunch. If you're doing sushi you could always half the amount and have it with edamame beans which count as your superfree and are really filling!

    My quickest lunch is: 1 x tin mackerel in tomato sauce, couscous (just pour on boiled water and fluff up) and a bag of frozen veg (4 mins in microwave)

    I often take cous cous salad into work - I put finely diced red onion, red/yellow pepper, cougette, mushroom, some lean meat (usually chicken or lamb leftovers), dried cous cous and a crumbled stock cube in a tuppleware container, mix it all together and take it into work like that. I don't add the boiling water until I'm ready to eat it, at which point I pour water over to just cover and put the lid back on and allow the cous cous to fluff up. Lovely filling hot meal, no syns and only needs a kettle. Sometimes I add dried apricots, and/or flaked almonds as my HEX B.

    there are also lots of good dips you can make - e.g. low syn hummus (whizz up chickpeas, 0% yoghurt, dash of lemon juice, paprika, garlic and a small amount of tahini paste in the blender). The only thing you have to syn is the Tahini (4.5 syns per tbsp - which is enough for a whole tin of chickpeas, and makes about 3 portions). Some people make it without tahini but I think it is worth the syns to have it with. Also, syn free smoked salmon dip - just whizz together smoked salmon and quark, with a squeeze of lemon if you like. I take these into work in little pots with a load of carrot sticks and sliced red pepper to dip, and perhaps a wholemeal pitta as a HEX B.

    I usually make tuna or egg salad with a little mayo, a ham salad sandwich using hex b or any left overs from the night before e.g. curry, chilli or spag bol.

    Pasta salad are nice too

    good luck with ur journey! :)

    i usually make a big pan of soup on a sunday and take that to work - depends if you have anything to heat it up. alternatively mugshots, jacket potato and my current favourite tomato and mushroom omelettes done in the microwave - yum!

    Sounds like you're doing well so far.

    For lunches I have baked potato with beans and cheese or salad with spicy chicken ( just oven baked with some peri peri seasoning cut into chunks), I make a frittata with potato, egg, saffron, onions, garlic and sometimes tiny chunks of chorizo. Use left over rice to make fried rice (add egg and veg), left overs are also fab, Chinese chicken noodle soup, any soups full of superfree veg.
