DD has just started 5:2 after putting on 2 and 1/2 stone in first year at college. She has done well in first two weeks with mum supervision and companionship ( am doing it too) but next week she does to stay with busy in laws who won't have time to supervise/ encourage. I desperately don't want her to fall off the wagon and need very wash suggestions for meals she can self prepare... She is dyspraxic and has some learning issues. If I can bulk buy some stuff for her to take and write her a when and where to eat she will be more likely to succeed. She has upped her exercise with my support ( won't do it alone) and will be ccling to and from work experience on a horse yard so the work will be physical. Any store cupboard suggestions for lunches she can take to work and suppers she can make herself??
I like shop bought fresh soups like Covent Garden. I'm vegetarian and most of the veggie soups are about 300 kcal for the entire container. I like to have about 60 grams of cottage cheese for protein on the side.
Stuffed mushrooms and stuffed peppers are good too, depending on brand they are often around 300 kcal for two. Served with green salad or tomatoes.
My FD breakfast/lunch is always natural yoghurt (100 grams for 80 kcal in the brand I buy) with some blueberries (50 kcal or less).
She is almost 19 so is fine to do the reduced calorie days. Thanks for the links. Shopping tomorrow for her to take...husband just arrived home with six saquets of naked noodle which she finds tolerable with tuna and greens in a stir fry.
