    Food Ideas Lunch -

    As rule never eat lunch (I take a lunch but just got into habbit of not eating mainly as lazy can can't be bothered to do sandwiches etc).

    However from a metabolism point of view and healthy eating and weight loss that is not a good idea. So need ideas of something healthy but means still eating was thinking of the meal shakes you can get. Has anyone used them

    Ideas

    Russ

    graze - nature delivered - get the fruit and nibbles box delivered, its healthy, balanced and can help weight loss, plus its delivered without having to do any making of sandwitches!

    Bento-box style lunches instead? Just cook a wodge of rice up once or twice a week, stick it in a tpperware container along with some vegetables and maybe a can of fish or similar?

    I do this sometimes it makes for nice food, then I just take some tuna, sardines or mackerel to mix in with either pasta or rice!

    I'm a lazy luncher as well. I tend to buy whatever is on offer at Tescos, this week it was buy one get one free cucumber so I've been eating mostly ryvita with cucumber. It takes 5mins to make, if that, chop cucumber, butter ryvita, mash two together. Yesterday I was extremely lazy and couldn't be arsed to even chop the cucumber so I spread some marmalade on the ryvita instead, lol.

    Other cheap & quick lunches include, those swedish biscuits + tuna/chicken/fish paste, couscous, cup of soup, toast.

    pasta salad with tuna, pesto, peppers and spring onion or something similar is one of my staples, also couscous with lots of roasted veg and cumin/chilli/coriander. Both of those you can make one night and have 3 or 4 days worth of lunch (if you dont get bored)
    Failing that just a salad with some chicken or something. I'm trying to think of a good way to bring noodles in (proper ones, not supernoodles)

    Plenty of carbs in all that but healthy too, ive got no problem with carbs as long as they're in moderation. I get too hungry otherwise!

    Pleh!! They are as horrid as they sound. One of the boarding house kitchens makes soup and sandwiches available in the staff room. Different flavour every day. Now where is the [smug] emoticon?
