This recipe as a healthy lunch

If you are eating healthily then you may have difficulty finding lunches for work. This is just one of many amazing Slimming World lunch ideas I have found so do check out my other recipes for more ideas.

If you take lunch then you are so much less likely to buy food which inevitably will be less healthy. Taking a variety of food throughout the week to work keeps your lunchtimes interesting and stops you from getting bored.

Even if, like me, you work alone at home it can make such a difference having your food already prepared for you. Why not give it a go and make sure you build a variety of lunches into your weekly meal plan like Sweetcorn Fritter.

There are so many tasty healthier snacks you can make if you are trying to lose weight. It means you don’t have to get bored of one thing and can vary your diet considerably. This is one of my favourites though and you will want to eat more and more of it I am sure!

Do you enjoy snacks when really you are not hungry and instead are boredom or comfort eating? I do this a lot so this is why it is so important to find low-calorie snacks when you can.

Budget shopping tips

I try to ensure all of the recipes I make are accessible for everyone. By this, I mean that they do not use obscure hard to find ingredients. I also believe that recipes should use as few ingredients as possible and avoid expensive ingredients. We would all much rather spend money on holidays than expensive ingredients wouldn’t we?

Buying herbs and spices in bulk is something I really recommend. It can save a lot of money in the long term but also mean you never run out! I find putting them on Amazon subscribe and save helps too! Additionally don’t forget to check out the yellow sticker reductions and freeze what you can.

Frozen vegetables are nutritionally just as good as fresh usually so do keep an eye on those too to save money. Do you have any particular frozen vegetables you love? Do share them with me it is always nice to hear people’s recommendations.

Spray a large non stick frying pan with low calorie cooking spray and place over a medium heat.

Pour in the egg mixture and cook for 6-7 minutes until it is starting to set on the top.

Move the frying pan to under the grill (be careful if it has a plastic handle!) and finish cooking for another approx. 5 minutes or until the top is cooked and slightly golden.

Slice into 8 pieces and serve as 2 pieces a portion. It is nice hot or cold however if boxing with the rocket for a lunch allow to cool first!

It is lovely warm served with a big dollop of salsa and some extra salad and homemade chips. Alternatively as a quick lunch it is great cool with rocket and salsa.
