hi guys

me and my friends always drive down to the supermarket at lunch and get food there (school food is disgraceful). they do a 3 meal deal i've been getting a while but the sandwiches are really high fat and the pastas / salads are loaded in mayo as well.

was wondering if you guys had any suggestions what to buy? i kind of have to go down to the supermarket with them as it's almost tradition. i did once try making meals the night before, but i always seem to give up after a week or so.

any suggestions on healthy things to buy at the supermarket or REALLY easy meals to make the night before?

thanks brahs

where do you live? i.e. what store are you going to?

Ideally make your own lunches at home. If you have to buy something at a supermarket typically a salad, some fruit, or sometimes you can buy a cooked chicken breast or two are going to be the most common and best options.

tesco in the UK

i can buy cooked chicken there in packets - would it be healthy to just eat that?

also, any super quick meal ideas?

Don't Tesco do a meal deal?

Get yourself a sandwich.

is it? i'm trying to clean bulk at the moment, wouldn't it be better to get fats through healthier forms than dressings?

yeah, a 3 meal deal with sandwich, chocolate/crisps (but i get apple slices) and a drink. it's just that the sandwiches/salads/pastas are full of mayo and dressings and have a really high fat content

What's wrong with a high fat content?

Judging by your terminology, use of the word healthy and apparent fear of fat. Please read this link and educate yourself:

Most supermarkets have a deli where you can buy food ready to eat
