    Question Anyone used Lite and Easy?

    Hi all, just wanted to ask for some ideas.

    My mum wants to buy lite and easy and I just threw it out there that instead of doing that, how about I cook for her and she pay me.

    She wants lunch and dinner, dinner I should be fine with doing freezer meals. However Im stuck on lunches.

    If someone could tell me, if they ordered before, how do they do a weeks worth of lunches? Are they all frozen? Mum wants salads and wraps and stuff like that.

    Any help would be great.

    TIA

    Lunches could be either a small frozen meal...like risotto or pasta; small roll with salad and either chicken or ham etc; salads with chicken etc; soup with roll. All also came with seasonal fruit.

    From memory, the lunches are wraps, salads etc - the start of the week is more salads (as they are fresher), then maybe soup (frozen) or small pasta bowl (frozen) for the end of the week.

    Here's some pictures of a menu I had from ages ago...

    You can download their current menus here (different calorie options so go choose which one you'd like)

    On the breakfast and lunch menu the items in red are frozen.
    We have been on it for 2 months lunches and dinners. We just buy the 7 day plan for one person and share it and do our own thing a few days each week so it works out a bit cheaper.
    I find the quality good. As a pp said there's a combo of frozen, fresh and packet food. Towards the end of the week more frozen. Yesterday for lunch I had a chicken, semi dried tomato and pasta salad with a date cookie, tub of strawberries, piece of tomato bruschetta and a small pack of nuts.
    All the dinners are frozen. Tonight I'm having creamy tomato tortellini and DH is having steak in pepper sauce. We are doing it for convenience not weight loss and really like it (we had it a few years ago too).

    I loved lite n easy. The meals that included fresh produce (e.g. Salad) were early in the week and things that don't spoil as quickly at the end of the week. Good luck 😊

    Another Lite n Easy fan here. I love their food - always fresh and a good variety. In addition to the weight loss (14 kg), I love the convenience of it. We're now doing our own breakfasts and whilst it is saving us a little bit of money, I'm missing the variety that Lite n Easy offers.

    I'm doing it at the moment. Today's lunch was nachos, which included a little bag of corn chips, some grated cheese, a tub of tomatoey mince topping (frozen) and salsa. It was good, prob one of my fave lunch options.
    Def check out the menu, it's great for ideas.

    Be warned though - they are very small meals 😕.

    I find lite n easy the blandest food in the world! I've been on it twice for the weight loss and convenience, but after 2 weeks (each time) I felt like throwing up at just the sight of the frozen meals.

    For lunches, you have to make your own, you just get all of the ingredients portioned into separate bags. So you could just do a wrap, a few slices of ham, a tiny salad and sachet of mayonnaise and that would be a wrap. You could maybe even cook a zucchini slice or frittata and portion that into lunches. Team those with a piece of fruit and carrot sticks if there aren't many veggies in your slice.
