fairly proud of my packed lunch

fairly proud of my packed lunch

I had a doctors appointment this morning and it made me aware that I really have to get on the loose weight trip.

here is my picture from my lunch. please let me know what you guys think. Healthy ? not healthy?

it's a sandwich with falafel, lettuce and a light cheese slice & carrots. the rest is for during the day as I work in a shop 3-8 today and I try to avoid a piece of cake from the cafe next door. instead I have a yoghurt (muller Greek yoghurt - left over from the week otherwise I use low fat yoghurt) with granola, and in case I crave for chocolate I have a Kellogg's biscuit moment and a belvita breakfast biscuit with me (normally I bring them back home. I also try the skinny popcorn version as I normally have Lentes curls.

I am fairly proud of the mix but would appreciate your feedback. especially how I maybe could swap the buscuits for something better :)

Hi Tina,

I like the photo of your packed lunch, and it sounds tasty and delicious. If you want to swap your biscuits, how about having another piece of fruit? I see you've got a banana, so hope about an apple or a pear, or cherries or some mixed fruits (strawberries, raspberries and blueberries?).

I tend to have a slice of Banana Fruit cake as a snack, or maybe some nuts - they are very tasty.

Lowcal :-)

Hi, did you do the calorie count? If you are within your daily allowance should be ok, but beware of breakfast bars they can be high in calories and sugar.


I like the cut carrots, they look a good size and very bright, something I would include if it was me. They look like they would be good to munch while waiting for the bus or something (I eat when bored so I think I might take stuff like that whenever I go out to stop me going to the shops). You've got fruit there, always good. I find bananas help if I have a sweet craving too. I love the Belvita biscuits, as they are suppose to be really filling too, aren't they? Let me know how you got on with it, as long as it works for you that's all that matters. ;) x
