    I know it's past lunch time but thought it would be nice to post what we are having/had sometimes so we can inspire each other! I know i eat a lot of the same things for lunch.

    Today i had a reduced fat egg mayo sandwich on wholemeal bread with salad, then a Galaxy Ripple and a yoghurt. Comes to about 550 cals which is a lot for lunch for me but tea isn't costing me much calorie wise!

    I had a cooked breakfast for my lunch! 3 quorn sausages, 3 turkey rashers, one egg and a tomato (all one in 1cal spray) for a grand total of less than 400 calories!

    I'm such a rubbish dieter!! I don't really like soup. I hate yoghurt. Cottage cheese an Philly both make me heave....... And I'd rather have my eyes poked with a stick than eat beetroot!!!! Oh an I only like green leafy veg when I can hide them in gravy :)

    Actually, sorry to hijack, but which salad dressings are typically low in cal? And available in all good supermarkets? Salad without Mayo needs a bit of a pickmeup!

    Nice one, cheers! Think I'll have to go for the H+M dressing from Tesco, the nearest Asda to me is miles away! Tho lemon and black pepper sounds really nice - fresh.

    If only M&S did one too - that's right near where I work!

    Cheeeeers! I like thousand island sauce! Tho have to admit that, to this day, I'm still not really sure what's in it!

    That fry up sounds awesome too, kinda makes me long for my the old low carb days.

    Today i had a tomato Mugshot, a yoghurt and a mint Aero, total calories 597. Not a very healthy lunch but i enjoyed it all the same. Had a lot of fruit for breakfast so made up for no salad or fruit with lunch.
