Here are some "meals on the go" that I like.
-Hummus wraps. Veggies and pre-cooked chicken with hummus in a wrap. What can be easier? If you don't want the chicken, replace with cooked white beans. The hummus makes it more filling, so you don't go hungry.
-Salad in a jar. I do this with my tupperware, but you can also use mason jars. Put your dressing on the bottom, then layer the hard veggies, like carrots, that don't get soggy. Then romaine, spinach or whatever else you like. Leave some room at the top to shake it when you're ready to eat. Add some avocado slices and cheese to make it more filling.
-Gazpacho soup.This is meant to be cold, so works better in warm weather.
- Hot soup. If you get a really good thermos (Gevalia makes awesome ones) you can keep your soup hot for eight hours or more. I take mine in at 7am and at 3pm is still steaming hot. Literally steaming.
- Take snacks as well. It's a tall order for a lunch to keep you full for a ten hour span. Apples with nut butter, veggies with hummus. you can use a similar jar for your veggies. Put dip on the bottom of a jar, then place your cut veggies standing up in the dip where you can grab them from the top of the jar. They already have the dip on them then. Works great with celery and carrots that don't get soggy.
- Oatmeal squares. You can find recipes on sparkrecipes.com for this. You can bake your oatmeal into squares that you can take with you. Who says you can't have breakfast for lunch?
I hope that gives you some ideas. Be sure to pack a full meal, not just a sandwich or wrap. Make it a wrap and a salad with a snack for later.
