    I have been going off the rails recently and I think it's because I am bored of Green days.

    I have decided enough is enough and I am switching to Orginial days when I go shopping tomorrow.

    The only trouble is - I am having trouble planning my meals. Can anyone suggest any quick, easy and filling breakfasts / lunches / dinners?

    Also could anyone suggest what I need as staples from the supermarket

    TIA Sarah xx

    Hiya Sarah,

    I'd recommend getting things such as butternut squash, swede, plenty of meat/fish, eggs, veggies, salad, sliced ham to snack on, tinned tuna or salmon and scwartz seasonings to pep any of your meats up

    Suggestions for meal ideas...you could have a bacon and egg roll for breakfast, fruit and muller yogurt, porridge/cereal, a homemade smoothie made with yogurt, full fry up (grill up) or an omelette.

    Lunch could be ham/tuna/egg salad, a cooked chicken from the deli counter at most supermarkets, cold quorn sausage sandwich, blt, pineapple chunks wrapped in honey roast ham or a meaty frittata made with chopped bacon and sausages etc

    Tea could be sausage casserole with a HE baked potato, roast dinner with mashed butternut squash instead of potatoes, homemade burgers with laughing cow x light in the middle, chicken and pepper kebabs with salad, steak with baked potato, fried egg and mushrooms or gammon and pineapple with fried eggs and baked potato.

    Hope that gives you just a few ideas, I am starting to do only red days too as of tomorrow as my weight loss is so slow on green (even though I prefer them) and I know red days give me better and faster results.

    Good luck, hope you get loads more ideas too. xxxxx

    :) Shouldn't be too bad expense wise if you try and bulk your meals out with veg (frozen is cheapest I find)
    Eggs are brilliant for filling you up and are pretty cheap for the amount you get.
    I do think red days are more expensive than green though!! I find I want to snack less though on red cos don't seem to get as hungry so I don't have to buy so many snacky foods saving me money there. xx
