    anyone know of any? or any low synned ones at least?

    I am working looooooooooong 12 hour shifts and i really dont even have the time to cook in advance.
    I really want to stick at this as my other option is weight watchers and i find this diet on the whole alot better!

    Any ideas would be great!!!

    Hot & Spicy skewers (or kebabs) from the Co-Op are really nice but a bit pricey, they are 4 for £2.99 (which I think is quite a lot).


    There is a Birds Eye ready meal called Pasta Arrabiata which is free on green. They are quite nice.

    I also like the Microwavable rice sachets from uncle Ben's, but I can't remember how many they are.

    I agree that this needs to be a sticky! I'd be quite happy to spend a few syns on a ready meal for convenience-sake. Sometimes, especially towards the back end of the week when I get tired, I just lose the plot when it comes to preparing meals.

    couscous, just add hot water wait 5 mins and tuck in, and for afters as much fruit as you like. what could be simpler.

    Batchelors mild curry savoury rice aint bad either but takes a while longer to microwave.

    discovered since the canteen at work shut that you can make batchelors supernoodles (or any similar) up by just pouring boiling water on them covering up with either the lid off the tupperware tub or some cling film and leaving them for 5-10 minutes

    I now also make pasta n sauce in a food flask by putting it in dry with the boiling water in the morning and its cooked about 3 hours later ..though only do this with a food flask one of the girls at work did it with a normal one and couldnt work out why she couldnt get it out of the flask i couldnt stop laughing!
    will be experimenting with savoury rice over the weekend!
