    Hi everyone. I'm new to the forum so hello!
    I have been doing sw for a few weeks now and lost 8lb so far, but I'm desperate for some work lunch ideas. All I have at work is a toaster and a microwave, I'm currently having things like toast with laughing cow on top, melon and perhaps a light mini babybel(syning this obviously).
    Does anyone have any good ideas - bear in mind preparing anything the night before can sometimes be hard.
    Thanks and happy new year

    Hi, and welcome to the forum xx

    How about things like jacket potatoes or homemade vegetable soup?

    I had thought of jacket potatoes in the microwave- does this work and do they taste as nice?
    I have the baked beans pots (green day) that microwave and have done the beans on toast thing.

    Do you have a kettle? I find mugshots for work are really good with some bits of fruit to pick at through the day. Sorry if you don't have a kettle though....

    Can you make a bit extra of your evening meal to take leftovers to reheat? Also cous cous and pasta salads. I cook my baked spud at home the night before then microwave it at work - not as nice as freshly done, but nicer than one done only in the microwave.

    Oooh Mugshots are the most amazing things! I swear by them on EE or Green days! They are small packets of pasta/noodle based soups and come in sweet n sour, chicken, spicy tomato, thai and creamy cheese flavours (correct me someone if there are any I've missed!) Most are free on EE and green but the creamy cheese are 2 syns! They're really filling and great as a lunch accompanied by something else such as Laughing Cow x-light (HEXa) on wholemeal toast (HEXb) or Ryvitas (HEXb) or a salad or anything of your choice that suits you and fits in with the plan really!! They really tide me over on a 12 hour shift in work, even as just a snack sometimes or if I don't have time to take a break I can have it in a mug behind the desk in work (I'm a nurse). They can be found in the soup isle with the cup-a-soups etc! Give them a go and hope you enjoy!! The make is simply 'Mugshots' by the way and it's under that name in the Food Directory/Online syns section!X

    If you shop at Sainsbury's this is quite nice, and it's only 51p a can.

    I usually make soup at home to last 3 days (Butternut Squash or Lentil soups in particular are so quick and easy to make that it really isn't a hassle.) However, I usually keep a stock of those tins of Ravioli at work for emergencies.
