The usual fall back is always leftovers for lunch, but I have really started liking the idea of simple salad wraps. Lettuce, tomato, cucumber and dressing in a wheat wrap closed up for yummy goodness.

We always eat leftovers from dinner. Keeps lunches interesting and no wasted food.

There is a new Crockpot called the LunchCrock which can make leftovers from the night before...plug it in when you arrive at work and have a hot meal by lunchtime.

Also you could pack a Colman cooler with maybe an avocado and crabmeat or chicken salad with a tad of mayo on a bed of lettuce which is about 6 carbs in the cooler.

Here is a favorite of mine
Kidney Bean Salad
1 can of kidney beans, drained
1 Tablespoon of Relish
1 1/2 Teaspoons of grated onion
2 Tbs. of mayonaise
Dash of salt and pepper

Mix all together and chill a few hours. Stir before serving. When ready to serve cut a tomato open like a flower and put kidney bean mixture ontop or just serve alone as a side.

Mix up some ground turkey, shredded pork loin, shredded chickenwith taco mix and your favorite stuffings for tacos...take 2 tacos in a baggie and stuff with lettuce, refried beans or whatever you like....tna tacos, salmon tacos, scrambled egg tacos...there are no rules.

I do a lot of planning for my lunches and I have to aim for low sodium so the canned soups and or frozen meals are not a good option for me. I usually cook a big batch of soup on the weekend ( My cream of Cauliflower is here on Spark) or I make something that will have leftovers for lunches and dinners during the week, like a low fat version of Ziti or chicken breasts etc. For lunch I am at staying under 400 calories and if I make a sandwich I use thin bagels or thin buns and have fresh veggies in stead of chips. Here are some typical lunches I do:
1 C soup
2 slices Heathy Ones turkey (thin sliced)
10 baby carrots
1 dill pickle spear

OR

left over Ziti
String beans steamed
1/2 a banana

OR

1 Tin of sardines or can of tuna (both drained)
4-5 saltine crackers
1/4 C blueberries
1/4 C strawberries
*drizzle with .5 T honey
10 celery sticks
5.5 oz of low sodium V8

OR

1/2 chicken breast w a slice of provalone cheese and roasted red peppers
1/2 C steamed asparagus
1C roasted sweet potato

I always use Spark to plan my meals the night before so I get a good portion at each meal and spread the calories out over the day. Hope this helps!
