The Easy Guide To Slimming World Packed Lunches

I’ve already made the dinner, washed the dishes, had an argument with my other half AND nearly ran over next doors cat- I’m exhausted and cannot be bothered to make a packed lunch.

Inevitably, it gets left until the morning and then I end up with a tin of spaghetti or even worse, I end up buying something with approximately 40,000 syns from the canteen at work. Oooops!

Over the past few weeks, I have been really trying to get some mojo in the packed lunch department and have some ideas to share with you lovely lot. Quick, easy, low syn, 1/3 speed and damned tasty- perfect. We do spoil you!

Tip 1 – Leftovers!

Invest in a good bit of Tupperware, like the Sistema ones below, and take what you had the night before, for the day after.

Tip 2 – Cous Cous!

Over the past few weeks, a firm favourite of mine has been the delicious Ainsley Harriot cous cous range.

This cous cous really is a lazy luncher’s dream. Just add hot water, wait a bit and you have a delicious and really low syn accompaniment for some salad that will keep you full until home time.

I like to have mine with lots of green leaves, red onion, pepper, cucumber and some form of syn free meat.

Tip 3 – Salad!

The Pinch of Nom Edamame, Sugar Snap and Carrot Asian Salad is also great to take to work- why not try it with the Ainsley Harriott Aromatic Thai Style cous cous?

I have also recently discovered the Pink Slaw from Tesco, which is syn free and really tasty! Additionally, it makes your lunch really colourful and damned Instagrammable.

Tip 4 – Snacks for the 3PM Munchies!

I like to make sure that I have a full artillery of syn free/ low syn snacks available for the 3pm munchies. I often fill a fruit bowl on on my desk on a Monday and work my way through it during the week.

Other good things to take are;

Perfect for late afternoon snacking session are these Syn Free Vegetarian Scotch Eggs. They will fill you up until tea time!

Tip 5 – Chocolate!

It’s really important to take snacks to avoid the moments you really want to go and ask Linda for a slice of her birthday cake… Or delve into Debbie’s chocolate stash in the filing cabinet.

If you like to have a sweet treat, you could always take some cake so you don’t feel left out. These Low Syn Chocolate and Orange Mini Bundt Cakes are perfect to pop into your lunch bag! Enjoy with a cup of tea whilst trawling through endlessemails.

  1. I really struggle with lunches too – thank you for posting this! I find the prospect of a salad for lunch really depressing so I often take left overs. Another favourite of mine is the McCain frozen jacket potatoes. I don’t have time to wait for a ‘normal’ jacket to cook so these are a perfect speedy alternative. Better still, if you leave them out of the freezer all morning to defrost a little bit then they only take 3 1/2 mins. I usually top with some weighed cheese from my A choice and a snap pot of beans. They do have a syn value of 1 due to a small amount of oil in the skin to make them crispy, but I think it’s worth it!

  2. I like the sound of some of these but as a truck driver, I’m restricted massively. While many drivers have all the mod cons in their cabs, I’m self employed so have to travel light and a filling, tasty packed lunch to be eaten cold as well as mid meal snacks seem very difficult to achieve 🙁

    1. I feel your pain buddy. Also a trucker. I’ve been taking cold pastas and stuff to work but I use baby station in service areas to heat it up in microwave.
