    Hi,

    Does anyone have any inspiration for low-syn or no-syn veggie lunches (preferably off-the-shelf as I am not organised enough to prepare something in advance)? I am trying to eat syn free for breakfast and lunch, saving syns for wine or desert with dinner. This means I am mostly living off a fat free yoghurt for breakfast, fruit to snack on and a jacket potato with cottage cheese for lunch which is getting a bit boring now,

    Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    The Easy Bean range is FREE, a little bit on the expensive side though.

    Ah, I only ever buy the Veg Chilli and Morrocan Tagine so this may explain my generalisation above. Sorry..

    Rephrase... Some of the Easy Bean range is FREE.

    I usually have 3 ryvitas and spread dairylea light on the top. Not much preparation required really, just using a knife to spread! Otherwise cereal is great to have for lunch, I always keep a box of weetabix at work so on those days I really can't be bothered all I have to do is poor some milk in a bowl!

    Thanks for the suggestions – will definitely try the easy bean option, and keeping cereal at work is also a great idea especially when the weather turns and I don’t fancy trudging outside for my potato

    Fat free super noodles, Batchelor's Pasta n Sauce (only some varieties) or Batchelor's Savoury Rice are all good for Green lunches that are syn free and require minimum effort. In fact, I'm pretty sure they can all be cooked in the microwave if needed.

    I often have Ainsley Harriot Cous Cous for lunch at work - all you need is to boil the kettle to make it up.

    I tend to stick to the spice sensation flavour, as that is only 1 syn per pack or the morrocan medley is 1 1/2 syns.

    Wow – loads of options, great that I can start to vary my lunch without using any syns!

    I will definitely give the M&S curry ago, and get some syn-free super noodles to keep in the drawer.

    Thanks again for all the useful suggestions

    Why don't you roast some veg the night before and add it to Ainsley harriott couscous and pop it in the fridge. Quick, easy and delicious!!
