We discussed lunches and shared lots of our favourite recipes:-

Eating lunch raises your blood sugar levels in the middle of the day, which gives you the energy you need for the rest of the day.  It also enables you to focus for the rest of the afternoon.

It is proven that people who skip lunch tend to overeat during their evening meal to compensate for missing lunch – so the key is DON’T EVER SKIP LUNCH!

  • Crackers and Cottage Cheese for simplicity
  • Sandwiches made with protein bread or thins as opposed to ‘regular’ bread
  • Omelette – one egg with two egg whites, lots of peppers, onions and whatever meat your want
  • Crustless quiches – can be eaten hot or cold
  • Batch make chillis, curries, spaghetti bolognese, casseroles and freeze so there’s always something in the freezer
  • Leftovers from the night before
  • Soups – a few were discussed but the butternuts squash and ginger pack from Morrisons is Devine! – Makes a change for the Broccolli and Cauliflower one we have all tried!
