Go on over to Walmart and pick yourself up a Coleman Lunch Box cooler. I used to pack mine in the morning with a small container of ice cubes....everything was cold all day long.

fresh fruits and vegetables
dried fruit
nuts and seeds
nut butters
hummus
tortillas, pita bread, bagels, regular bread, crackers
muffins
yogurt
pasta
beans
rice
granola bars

Use an insulated lunch bag or thermos. Use ice packs. I think most things that you would eat at room temperature or cool would be fine.

I also use the food containers with little ice packs built in -- and a lunch bag that includes them as well. You might want to check out the Fit 'n' Fresh products in the SparkPeople store. That's where I bought my first ones. Then I went to the Fit 'n' Fresh company website and bought some more.

foil packs of tuna or chicken; peanut butter (in a sandwich or eat with apples, bananas, whole grain crackers), fruit, trail mix (I like walnuts, raisins, and pumpkin seeds), popcorn (store it in a tin & it stays very fresh), dry cereal (oat squares, Special K, Kashi), LOTS of stuff.

what about a thermos?

unless you are in very extreme temps, a salad or sandwich would be fine with a cold pack or frozen bottles of water.

I have weeks where I'm in a similar situation and I've found that a cooler with one of those reusable ice packs keeps my lunch plenty cold so salads, sandwiches, etc are all options.

With my job, I am on the road a lot and more often than not, my lunch is eaten in the car while parked in a parking lot. Does anyone have any ideas on healthy foods I can take with me that do not require refrigeration?
