Need help picking foods!!!

Postby oostevens » Fri Aug 31, 2007 11:50 am

Ok, so today is Friday, pay day.

Usually on Friday the hubby and i buy lunch (while at our jobs) and dinner.

I don't know what to buy for lunch :s the places at the shops are 'subway, bbs cafe, utk, sushi, carvery, asian, maccas, redrooster, woolies, michelle's patiserie'. Any ideas of something healthy? I am a tad over subway :(

And dinner, usually its our Indian night, but we are going to make our own indian tonite instead cos its prolly better for u as we can monitor what we eat hehe but if anyone knows any good indian meal ideas please let me know.

lunch is in 1hr and 15mins lol i gotta decide before then

so many options! subway stands out for me but you are over that, not sure about uncle tonys kebabs, i heard recently that kebabs are actually better for you than subway but i am not too sure... wouldnt wanna risk it :P
im not sure whats at the cafe thing you are talking about, but is there somewhere you can get a sandwich or salad? maccas have the lite options so you could get some nuggets or something?

do you like sushi? it's a pretty good option - especially if you eat one of the uncooked ones

otherwise, what about a rye bread sandwich with lean meat (ham, chicken & turkey) and salad?

or does anyone sell salads?

sushi is nice, but i had that last week ha ha and i am not feeling like that today.

i might check out BB's cafe, they have vege lasagne and salad sangas and stuff like that, might see if anything jumps out at me.

i will prolly have watermelon juice for lunch though :p soooo yummy
