This is my first day on WW and I'm looking for filling lunch ideas to take to work with me. I've got access to a fridge, kettle and microwave.

Any suggestions very gratefully accepted - thank you!

Cold ready cooked chicken, half a Jamie Oliver curried chickpea pouch, Greek yogurt on the side. 6 points I think!

Thinking I might go down the leftovers route - I feel more like I've had food if it's hot!
Think this is going to take more planning than I'm used to, but it'll be worth it smile

Leftovers yes but I'd also recommend veggie "meals in a tin" which are naturally low fat low cal usually.

Things like veg curry, veggy chilli, ratatouille...

Leftovers - homemade so low points

Spag Bol, stews, casseroles, ;including less well known ones like stroganoff, ghoulash) curries...

Also baked potatoes with ww friendly toppings like cotrage cheese, tuna with a little low fat mayo, low sugar baked beans, bolognese sauce...

Good luck

If you have a toaster then beans on toast are my go to.

I love Sainsbury's low be good or something Thai chicken cuppa soup. I always stock up when I go. Handy when you're out and about too. Eg I get a coffee from pret/Gregg's and a cup of hot water - they don't charge. I'm usually buying stuff for my son too. It's the best soup I've found. Only 2 points 😉
