I packed five days' worth of this salad this week. I was surprised by how filling it was once I started eating!
Crock pot of vegetarian Chili and put into individual containers and freeze. Take one serving out of freezer the night before and pack for lunch with a slice of low sodium whole grain bread with becel, a 15-20g slice of low fat Swiss Cheese and an apple.

Usually I make a big crock pot full of some soup/stew/chili and then eat off it all week.

I bring leftovers from dinner almost every day. I also eat out once a week as a treat, usually at Chipotle since I can eat there and stay easily within my ranges. I also have a few frozen meals in my freezer in case I don't have leftovers. I like the Healthy Choice Top Chef Steamers. They have a good amount of nutrients and aren't too bad on the sodium for a frozen meal.
For snacks I have yogurt, cheese, and an apple. Sometimes I'll bring 1oz of beef jerky if I'm low on my protein for the day, but not often since it does have a lot of sodium. I also like those mini bags of smart pop popcorn, but I wouldn't recommend that if you work in a place w/ a lot of people, a lot of people don't like the popcorn smell. I also eat my "breakfast" at work, which is just a 120 calorie Kellogg's Fiber Plus granola bar. It would be a good snack for most people.

Low sodium instant soups! I've found a mushroom soup with nuts and grains from Cosway that's really filling and convenient to prepare, all you need is a mug and hot water! Oh, and a spoon, of course ;)
Suzie's Whole Grain Thin cakes (like rice cakes but thinner and WAY less calories) 3 = 48 cal with a touch of light mayo or mustard Cheddar cheese slice (1 very thin slice - just enough for flavour) Deli Meat (ham or chicken breast)
It's like 3 mini open face sandwiches.

I guy energy bars and meal replacement drinks from Amway, they're the best I found and my friend sells them. Really good stuff.
