do you like canned tuna? there are lots of low cal ways to prepare it...light or fat free mayo, some people mash some avocado into the tuna instead of mayo.

hard boiled egg whites are fast and easy as you can make a batch and store in refrigerator.

try a different take on your salad...add some black beans and salsa instead of salad dressing to give it a mexican feel.

the only other thought i have, and you may already do this...just keep buying different veggies every week and switch your salad dressings up constantly to make it taste livley.

I am gonna try a chicken wrap with come grilled chicken breast, black beans, avocado, lettuce, tomatoes and salsa... It sounds yummy! And you already have the chicken prepared just add it all in a whole wheat tortilla..

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.

this is a recipe of mine, very tasty! The hot chili pepper is a whole 1 calorie's worth so dont fret about skipping it!

Pinto beans cooked with a lot of salsa, garlic and spices over a healthy tortilla and 1/2 oz. low cal cheese with some fresh veggies (tomoatoe, onion, green pepper, etc.).

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.

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.

Hi Everyone!

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??
