I have been doing 5:2 since march and it's gone well. Have lost a stone and a half. My usual lunch would be carrot sticks and celery dipped in oxo cube. Now the weather has cooled I'm thinking I need something warm instead.......I tried a homemade curried carrot soup..but this isn't as filling. Anyone got some good packed lunch ideas that can be microwaved for those chilly days for around 50-80 calories?

The roasted garlic and cauliflower soup is a big favourite on this site. I'm sure you can find it in the recipe section. Congrats on your weight loss so far!

Broth with 3 oz of fresh Brussels sprouts would cook up nicely in the microwave. Cut the sprouts in half but don't precook them. 2 minutes will cook them just fine. They are very nutritious and filling. You could throw in an ounce of precooked chicken breast, too.
