I usually bring leftovers to work - just about every day. I deliberately cook an extra portion with dinner and set it aside before bringing the rest of the meal to the table (so DH doesn't eat it and leave me lunchless!).
When I'm really motivated, I'll also make a few lunches over the weekend and put them in the individual tupperwares for the week. Soup is a great one for that, as are lots of lentil dishes (curried lentils with caramelized onions, for example).
For today I threw together a super easy salad: baby spinach with sliced strawberries, red onion, feta, and walnuts with a splash of lemon/olive oil.
Sometimes I'll also buy a rotisserie chicken at the beginning of the week and just use that for lunches. One day maybe I'll have a leg with some steamed broccoli. Another day, I'll dice some of the breast meat into a salad.
I'm also a working mom, so I try to do as much as I can the night before. Mornings are too chaotic!
