Slimming World lunches for work 

If you usually eat your lunch at your desk, you might have to get a bit more creative with your Slimming World lunch ideas. You likely won’t have access to the same kitchen facilities as you do at home, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy varied and satisfying meals at lunchtime. 

Here are some tricks and ideas to keep in mind for when you need a Slimming World lunch if you can eat at work… 

Ideas for eating out at lunchtime on Slimming World

The beauty of the Slimming World plan is that no food is entirely off limits, so you can still enjoy eating out whilst working towards your goals.

If you’re on the go, you still have plenty of choices and you don’t need to deprive yourself.

Many big name restaurants and cafes are listed in the official Slimming World Syns directory, so you can plan in advance. The same applies if you’re picking up a sandwich or a meal deal from a supermarket.  

If you have to go off piste a little, and you’ll be eating at an independent cafe for example, a little common sense goes a long way. Don’t be scared to ask for your bread to be unbuttered if you’re ordering a sandwich, or ask for any salad dressing to be served on the side. 

Ensuring you get your speed foods

Do remember that the basics of the Slimming World plan suggest that you should ensure that a third of your meals consist of speed food

This will help you to get all the vitamins and minerals you need for your general health and wellbeing, and it also make sure that you feel satisfied after your meals. 

A salad is a great option at lunchtime, and you can keep things varied and interesting by mixing up the veggies you use. There are also plenty of Syn free and low Syn dressings you can try. 

A side portion of a fruit salad can also be a good idea, or you could make some veggie crudités with carrots, cucumber, and baby tomatoes.
