oh mother of god....last nights dinner was a FEAST! We were still eating at 1am this morning! Boy oh boy i'm going to pay for it on the scales.

But was back on track to day. Even got in some excercise, and made another batch of the muffins to see me thru the weekend!

Lunch Ideas ... ?

I'm wondering does anyone have any Lunch ideas that aren't too hight in points? I don't know about ye but I like to have a big enough dinner, usually using 10-15points from my 29. But I find that my lunch is usually 8-10 and I don't have enough points for a proper dinner (when you add in brekkie and a snack or 2).

I like to have a carb at lunch or I can't concentrate in the afternoon. So I usually have a wrap or bread. That's 3-5 pts before fillings.

Any suggestions welcome

hey, does anybody know how many propoints in Lily O'Brien's Sticky Toffee Chocolates. I've been on their website and it only states per serving which is 42g. I don't know how many sweets this is? hmm probably should have weighed them before i ate them but too late now!!
can anybody help!!??

I'm a plain eater, why not have a ham salad sandwich or wrap with a tbsp low fat mayo. That's only 5-6 pps. Have fruit then for dessert.
or i like an avocado salad (just have half an avocado) with zero pp veg and balsamic vinegar- if you want carbs stick it in a small pitta!
Or you could have old zero point veg soup with a small petit pan roll...
Don't know if that helps but that's what i like

Thanks to everyone who had kind words re my cat, he's home now and fully recovered
Unfortunately, my appetite is now back in force!
I saw someone else posting re the M&S count on us roasted butternut squash wrap (6pp), I had that today and it's lovely. It's great that M&S are changing to the propoints, I was a little worried they'd just remove the points altogether. It makes lunch shopping much quicker.
I also had the M&S vegetarian sushi which works out at 7pp per pack.

For dinner tonight I used the WW sausage casserole sauce mixed with quorn sausages some onion and red pepper and had boiled new potatoes and carrots with that. Really great hearty dinner for 10pp.

Have you a microwave in work? Maybe you could bake a potato in the evening and nuke it for lunch the next day

Do you like salads you could have 100g chicken breast 3pp, lots of free salad food, 2 laughing cow light cheese pp1, salad dressing pp1 and then get the carbs you want from some couscous/rice/pasta/ small roll pp2/3 that would be a really filling lunch for 7/8 pp.
Tuna sandwich, small tin 56g tuna in brine pp1, 2 slices bread pp4, mayo pp1, salad pp0 ,total 6pp. Have a piece of fruit and you should be comfortably full.

The vibroplates are great as a warm up. try using it for about 10 mins before using the treadmill. Its great for kinda loosening ya up and getting the circulation going. They're kinda useless as a stand alone exercise. Combo of vibroplate and treadmill will get ya GREAT results!

We used to have them at work, I used to work for chartbusters. They plates were really popular with all the people who used the gym next door.
