I LOVE ALL the products from Reliv. They have a website you can check out. The products are packed with vitamins and nutrients. AND, they actually taste good.

I like to drink the Equate or Special K Protein Shakes when I'm running late (or running out of food).

I like leftovers too. Also, a bowl of cereal, milk and a piece of fruit makes a pretty good lunch. The only problem is getting in enough protein with a 'breakfast' lunch.

One of the best things you can do (if you can't access a microwave) is to get a thermos & put your hot food in it. My kids do this for school & eat very well.

Lean Shake made by GNC is pretty tasty. But it's one of those you gotta make it before you eat it. It doesn't taste very good after a few hours if you add fruit to it.

If you have a Trader Joe's nearby there are lots of good things you could make ahead of time or take with you if you have a microwave at work.

I love their minestrone soup in the can. It is very low sodium and has lots of fiber in it and it fills me up. The whole can is 200 calories. It has a removable lid so you don't need a can opener, just a container to pour it into and eat out of.

They have a lot of "salads" that aren't like a typical salad such as taboulli, black bean/corn salsa, etc. that are different-tasting and not boring.

Try Campbell's Soup at Hand. They have several varieties that are under 100 calories.

I keep a fake magic bullet at work. I make my own smoothies with non -dairy protein powder (dairy congests me) and some strawberries and stevia. It's convenient. I also keep a can of green beans (no salt added) at my desk for days when I need something more.

Good luck.

Take leftovers from dinner for lunch. Smoothies probably aren't that good after a couple of days. Depends on what you make them with. I don't find them at all filling, and they tend to be high sugar, but again, that depends on how you make them.
I also like home-made soup for lunch, if you have access to a microwave and fridge.

I know Slim Fast Shakes are not the best of foods but they're ready to go and convenient.
However, I seem to be allergic to something in them because I break out in hives.
I'm so sick of taking sandwiches to work and I don't enjoy salads for lunch.
What else could I take? How long can I keep smoothies? If I made a batch on Monday would it be ok to take them all week?
