Hummus. Lots can be done with it: on crackers, filling in the deviled eggs, in wraps, with vegetables. You can buy it premade or make it yourself. There's a few good recipes on spark recipes.
I just posted a new recipe for a ham (you can use chicken if you wish) salad wrap that is only 115 calories. That means you can have a couple and still be on point with your goals. http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-deta il.asp?recipe=1116951

Sprinkle your salad with white or black beans. You can store in the refrigerator for a number of days.
Hard boil eggs. I avoid the yolks, but the whites still have a lot of protein. You might try an egg salad recipe for a change.
I substitute white beans for pasta in a variety of salads such as tuna salad.

Well, the title says it all - I'm looking for lunches that are SUPER fast to make in the morning, or only take a small amount of time to make the night before.
Typically, I buy myself a 2-pack of boneless/skinless chicken and will grill those up each week. I usually just take about 1/2 a chicken breast to work with me, slice it up and add it to my salad, but honestly, I get bored very easily!
I need a high protein lunch, otherwise I fade during the day, and find that I don't have the energy to get through my workouts, and then I tend to snack in the afternoons.
I don't eat mushrooms or peppers (allergies), and am trying to eat as low-carb as possible, so other than my salad, or the occasional grilled tuna wrap or open sandwich, I'm coming up short on any lunch ideas!
Anyone have some suggestions??
