Best Take To Work Lunches | Slimming World

Scroll down for full recipe and instructions: 

Following the Slimming World plan doesn't have to be time consuming (see 'how to prepare 7 Slimming World freezer meals in under an hour')  I find the trickiest meal of the day to get sorted is lunch, especially if you work full time.

It's almost impossible to find anything suitable while on the go so I usually try and cook a bit extra of my evening meals to take in as left overs, but that isn't always possible.

I decided to dedicate some time to preparing a weeks worth of work lunches on my Sunday afternoon, and thought I would share the meals I came up with!

You can mix and match everything together to maintain some variety throughout the week, I took a Muller light yoghurt for dessert too!

For the rice, fry off the pepper, onion and sweet corn with fry light in a pan.  

Add 2 cups of rice to 4 cups of stock (made up using the stock cube), I used a coffee cup. Bring to the boil and them simmer until all of the water is absorbed, which is usually around 20 minutes.  You’ll need to stir it regularly to prevent it from sticking.
