So what are we having for lunch?

I am just at my desk eating my lunch hoping the phone won't ring when my mouth is full and looking at minimins... I was just wondering what other packed-lunch eaters eat for lunch whilst cc-ing? Obviously we are restricted by portability, time to make and our calorie allowance. I thought it might give us all some inspiration to rejuvinate our lunches if we shared...

So I had dried apple rings and a plum for me morning munchies. Lunch is a seeded wrap with spinach, extra light philadelphia, cucumber and smoked salmon; a hard boiled egg, 50g blueberries and 200g pineapple (which all comes to 454). Got a cereal bar for late afternoon to keep me going at the gym!

Must say, CC, that lunch sounds deeply delicious! Good on you for taking the time to put it all together. Sounds like a little feast for the tastebuds. My stomach just severely rumbled reading it.

I was out today for lunch, wasn't planned, so I tried to make a relatively healthy choice. I went for the spicy apricot and mango chicken with saffron rice. Healthy resolutions went out the window when I was presented with the dessert menu, though, so I'd best not mention that because it probably ranks as food porn! :p

Lol Iris, love it! I also went out for lunch and stayed away from dessert, although I can't say the same for the bulmers GRRRRRRR! I ended up skipping the gym and I then got a bottle of wine on my way home, and then munched out on crunchy nuts for dinner. And I didn't stop at one bowl unfortunatly! Aww well :(
CC I alsio think your lunch sounds so lush! For lunches I usually make a chicken or prawn salad and have a cappuccino and caramel freddo after, its ususlly around 450 cals. Or a WW meal with a salad or veg, which is around 400 cals. xx

pumpkin, if you could resist the lure of the desserts, I figure you've earned some wine and at least a couple of bowls of crunchy nuts.

[warning: if you're of a sensitive sugar-craving disposition please don't read on]

I couldn't resist the desserts and I ended up going for... *drumroll please* 'Bailey's Irish Cream and Fudge Cheesecake.' Served with Belgian choc scrolls and a big dollop of ice cream. Approximately a gazillion cals a mouthful, or it felt like it! But by heck, it was good. I resisted licking the plate, with difficulty, but I did covertly smudge my thumb over it to get the last crumbs!

Yes, I'm a pig. So, hey, I bet that wine and cereal doesn't seem too bad now, eh? :p

Iris, that dessert sounds scrumptious! Damn you... Stuck at work thinking about chocolate cake now!

I'm planning to have a Boots Shapers lunch today seeings as I am on a tight timeframe. Perhaps the chicken roast sandwich with pineapple slices for an afternoon snack. Tomorrow, may treat myself to a Subway. Mmmm!

I bet that Baileys dessert tasted amazing! And since it was a treat I bet it tasted all the better. I find that restricting according to cals means when you do go for broke and have a dessert out (or a mini magnum at my parents - i love their freezer!) it tastes so much better!

Tomato soup and an english muffin for lunch today coz I want to keep more cals for a chicken kiev and roasted veg this evening - I'm off work tomorrow so tonight will be my 'Friday night' dinner - always something comfort food-y!

Have a lovely productive day all x

Oooo that dessert sounds so darn good! Well on that site you told me about Iris, I have a big fat X for yesterday coz I didn't even exercise! Aw well, I guess we all need a little treat every now and then :p

CC have you came up with any more lunch ideas? Sorry for hijacking your thread btw! x

Well personally I eat my wraps as described before with various protein fillings like ham/that cooked chicken with flavourings like tikka etc/tuna. I also like fresh soups with an english muffin. Sometimes in the winter I have a little jacket potato with baked beans. Um... I also like crudites, dip (I like sour cream and chive mm), boiled egg (can just eat the white if need less cals) and cream crackers. I go through phases!!! Always with fruit like melon, blueberries, plums, cherries, apples, pineapple... What do you do??

During the working week, I always have soup - usually lentil or vegetable based.
