Prep like a boss

At Slimming World, we’re big believers in planning – and prepping your lunch ahead of time will ensure you’ve got a slimming-friendly meal to hand when midday hunger strikes! A salad can be prepared in minutes before you start work, and left in a sealed container in the fridge to stay fresh until lunchtime. If you really want to get ahead, a big batch of veggie-packed soup will last in the fridge for up to five days, or even longer if you store a few portions in the freezer!

Carrot and coriander soup

Fancy making your own Slimming World soup? Our Free carrot and coriander combo adds butternut squash and cannellini beans into the mix to make it even more satisfying.

Quick and easy

Even if you struggle to find the time to prep, you can still enjoy the flavours of a home-cooked lunch by using a couple of shortcuts. Canned foods like beans and chopped tomatoes make tasty toast-toppers, while a couple of eggs are all you need to whip up an omelette, crustless quiche or scrambled eggs in minutes.

On the days when you’re really pushed for time, it can be helpful to have a no-prep meal handy. That’s why we added a range of ready-in-minutes lunch bowls to our Slimming World Free Food range (available at Iceland). You can also find the recipe for each dish inside the packaging or on our website, if you fancy making your favourites at home when you’ve got more time.
