You can pack hot soup in a thermos and it will stay warm almost all day! Add a turkey sandwich with veggies and you are set!

what an awesome idea!!


“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

i'm a huge fan of CLIF or Luna bars for breakfast. kind of a small breakfast, but if you're running out the door, it'll get the job done.

Are protein bars a good room temperature solution, or are there too many preservatives and strange ingredients to make it a lunch staple?

I take an apple, almonds, rice crackers and nature peanut butter to work. I make sure I eat every 2-3 hours to keep my metabolism revved up. It has worked so well for me. I never respond to all of the goodies in the lounge because I am more than satisfied.

This is the first board I have found where many ideas for snacks and meals are addressed; also, ideas on how to keep things cool. I have searched all over the place and this is the best by far. I am a Flight Attendant for 6 + yrs, and some times I am gone for 4 days at a time. The layovers have fewer and fewer in room refrigerators. On 13 + 14 hr days, one emoticon must constantly think to restock ice on planes and keep in mind where and at what time will one needs to ice up again.Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I'm so glad I discovered this board. I'm a bit of a road warrior; in the car and at a different location daily. Some days are completely normal and other days I am eating breakfast at 5:00am and lunch at 3:00pm with nothing more than a bathroom break in between. I usually carry a low fat cheese stick and/or a protein bar with me on those days. When I have the luxury of an actual lunch break, I bring a turkey & lettuce wrap (low carb, whole wheat) and a piece of fruit OR a salad with nuts and dried fruit. I use a cold pack which keeps things chilled for a few hours.
This whole jar salad thing had me intrigued. I am definitely going to try it.

I second the St.Dalfour suggestion. I LOVE their little cans (that have that easy open top so you don't need a can opener....) They are the most amazing tasty little protein/veggie combinations. I bought a small case - amazon.com here in the States had them in their grocery section. The only thing is that now I think I'm tired of eating the same ingredients. So I'm going to start adding them to broth and making a quick tasty soup.

Hey! Jar salads are popular on Pinterest, the greens go on the bottom and the meats/cheeses on top then the dressing on the very top.. You pack them in a mason jar and then just mix them when your ready to eat. The layers make it so the lettuce doesn't get soggy.

Brunswick makes these great ready-to-eat small tins of tuna in various flavors for about 160 calories. Its great with a slice of whole wheat bread or a serving of crackers. add a fruit and your favorite brewed tea and its a really great breakfast for under 400 calories....

I am with hikeluv! Take a small keep cool bag with you with an ice pack, then the world is your oyster! Dried fruit and nuts are also a good source of nutrition.

Milk is a good source of protein. If you can buy a serving of milk at the food court where you work, you could add that to the fruits and veggies available to you. One glass of milk is about 1/5 of the average person's protein need.

Slimfast "shakes" are a nice quick breakfast (I usually add a piece of fruit).

I keep in my desk, for use in a pinch, some of those "lunch to go" packs with tuna, crackers, a packet of mayo. You mix the tuna and mayo when you're ready to eat. I also love baked beans straight from the can. I keep a couple of the smallest cans in my desk.

Peanut butter is great. I have a colleague who puts peanut butter on apples or bananas for his lunch. I like peanut butter on celery. Or peanut butter sandwiches using low sugar jam.

Hard boiled eggs are great for easy protein on the run for breakfast.

Almonds or other nuts, fruit, dried fruit, protein or other nutrition bars, jerky, pbj sandwiches, hummus that doesn't need refrigeration, crackers, popcorn made at home, cheese, olives.

Really, there are no limits. I was thinking of things I would take on a hiking trip. But, truly, why can't you bring a lunch bag with ice - then the sky is the limit, as long as the food doesn't need to be heated!

Smoked meats aren't neccessarily more fattening; some can be very lean. They do tend to pack more sodium, if that's a concern for you. The extra salt can make you hold more water weight, but doesn't add any more fat.

Sachi makes a great insulated lunch bag that actually does keep things cold. Amazon has them for around $18 in different prints. They look really nice, almost like a purse, and they open up completely at the top to hold a lot of food. I work 13 hour shifts in a place with no fridge, and my food never goes bad. I can carry whatever I want. I use my Sachi bag with a freezer pack in conjunction with the Fit-Fresh containers that come with their own custom-sized freezer packs for each container. (I just saw that you can actually buy those here on the SparkPeople site. I found those also on amazon.) Using those gives you a cold pack in your insulated bag, plus another cold pack in the individual containers with each food item. Salads carry well this way, and there are lots of whole grain dishes and pasta dishes that eat really well at room temp--farro pilaf, brown rice dishes with veggies, even soups would work for summer since they wouldn't be so hot.

Starting over is better than never starting at all.

The place where i work now has only a mini fridge and a small microwave. Most of the time i only work for 5 or 5 and a half hours so i don't have to worry about bringing food. The first real day of work i worked from 3 to 8 and had to eat when i got home that night. They have food there i can buy because it is a store but it is mostly convenience foods.

I have the luxury of a microwave at work but not the rest of the family. My husband LOVED whole wheat wraps with tomato and avocado. As for my daughter I pack a hot lunch in an insulated lunch bag and she tells me that she eats her rice or pasta warm at noon. It really takes a bunch of hours for food to get spoiled unless you are in a very hot environment.

Cottage cheese with fruit always fills me up--lots of protein. I'd make that as a side to chicken salad or tuna salad or pasta salad in a hard cooler. Crackers instead of bread so it doesn't get mushy as the ice melts.

You're lucky to have access to all that fruit! Good luck.

Great topic! And even better suggestions/ answers!

I just wanted to also chime in and say that those insulated pouches really work well for storing food inside. I always put a "Blue Ice" frozen block at the bottom (after having it in the freezer overnight), then place my lunch for that day on top, then zip it closed. It keeps everything cold for at least 7-8 hrs. I understand that the heat outside may lessen the time that it keeps cold for you, but it would work well anyway for things like sandwiches or salads. Mine resembles a purse, so I think that the smaller size also helps keep things cool for longer periods of time.

Good luck!!

Perfect push to get in your fruits and veggies. Salads, carrot sticks, raisins, nuts, trail mix, hummus, quinoa or barley salads, I usually just throw in whatever healthy leftovers are from dinner the night before. As long as it's packed with a cool pack, I'm good to go.

I pack everything I need in an insulated lunch kit. I make PB and J sandwiches on Sunday for the week and freeze them. I pop those out in the mornings, pack water, fruit, yogurt, and sometimes cheese or nuts of some kind, and squeeze it all into the lunch kit. I usually put an ice pack in there too when I pack yogurt. Everything stays cold all day and it doesn't take up a lot of space. I have to pack this way because I don't have time to go to a fridge or a microwave during the day. I also like to graze during the day so I don't get too hungry.

I'm rather like a Hobbit, my 'second breakfast' that I eat at work are the almonds and banana that I love(I drink a smoothie when I get up). As for the lunch, I can eat basically any temp that is not ice cold, so I heat up my lunch before I leave the house and just keep it on my desk all day--a bit lazy admittedly but it works for me emoticon

I worked veggie stands in Florida summers for several yrs until just 2 yrs ago. here is what I did. I ate a lot of peanut butter, nutella, dry protein bars, nuts, cold baked bean sandwich, ham, and bologna with mustard ,chunk pepperoni avoiding anything with mayo. I could not afford buying fancy coolers so created my own. I made chunk ice in fat 32 oz plastic bottles, lined a med size soft sided cooler with thick bath towel and rolled my lunch/brunch and dinner in a small hand towel with the ice bottle. kept this in a cardboard box wrapped in old blanket I set on piece of plastic on the ground under the table. kept it cool most of day.

Smoothies are good - especially if you are OK using a shaker instead of a blender.

I like to take a protein bar when I am running behind and keep nuts, popcorn and beef jerky at my desk for 'emergency' food needs.

Jar salads!!! I get a big mason jar and layer in my leafy green of choice, veggies, grains, and dressing. Shake it up and eat it right out of the jar or bring a bowl/plate. The combinations are endless...

Shredded kale, carrots, cabbage, grated beets, sunflower seeds and a tamari, olive oil dressing is my fav.

Spinach, peppers, cucumbers, quinoa and feta with a vingarette dressing is another good one.

You can't really go wrong with fruit. It helps to get all of your servings!

My lunch fav:
Apple with 2 TB creamy peanut butter. I stay full until it's time to go home, at which time I have a snack like nuts.

My insulated lunch bag goes in the freezer. The gel packs are all around so everything seems to stay pretty cold all day.

I've also done the protein powder with dry milk and then mixed it with water. No refrigeration needed.

I've also recently tried boullion cubes or other dry soup crystals and various freeze dried vegetables with water. It's better if the water is hot but not really necessary. I buy my freeze dried vegetables on line. I originally got them for backpacking but they work really well for every day lunch as well. ( I even keep some in my desk drawer for those days I either can't or don't want to leave my desk.

Also, if you've got access to a food court, you may be able to get some hot water from one of the coffee shops then you can mix that with oatmeal, soup mix, etc.

Definitely look at some of the backpacking websites and hiking websites for ideas that don't require refrigeration and are light to carry and that only require hot water.

Quest bars! They are difficult to find in stores, but you can google for their website. 20g protein, 17-18g fiber, 1g sugar. Have this with a piece of fruit for breakfast and you will be good. Should be ok too if you have for lunch with a piece of fruit and some raw veggies.

I just tried the chocolate chip cookie bar and it was delicious in the microwave. If you're in 100 degree heat, it might be just like if it was in the microwave, lol.

I'm thinking of getting a small frig and microwave for my office. Some are not too expensive and stores have sales on them. I'm thankful that I have my own office.

I pack school lunches with the same parameters and they usually come out fine. You'd be surprised how many leftovers are good cold, with just an ice pack. Or I use a thermos-style food container and it keeps it hot. Just be sure to pre-warm it by leaving hot tap water in it while you're heating up your food. Then switch out the water for the food.

Today is a great day!

If you have electricity, Crockpot makes a small one serving size lunch tote that you plug in when you get to work, and by lunchtime your meal is warm. It has a handle and seals nicely for transport. I got mine at Amazon.com. Fit n fresh sells containers with snap-in ice packs in many shapes and sizes, I got mine through this website at the Spark Store.

Wow! What a drag!

I'd say sandwiches are an excellent option.
