One thing I like to make is a chickpea salad kind of like chicken or tuna salad but with chickpeas instead of the meat). I take a can of chickpeas, mash them with a fork to get a texture to my liking, then add olive oil mayo, a bit of dijon, and salt and pepper. I also like finely diced onion and celery in mine, but you can put pickle relish or whatever you normally like in your "chicken" salad. This is really good and easy. I also like egg salad made in pretty much the same way.
I usually take leftovers to work, a PB&J sandwich, a salad (I have one of those salad bowl things that separates the ingredients), or a veggie burger with fixings that I can warm up in the microwave. Sometimes I take a canned vegetarian soup, progresso makes a few like their vegetarian vegetable and their lentil soup that are okay when I'm pressed for time.
Hi, scroll down the main team page and below tre introduction threads are recipe threads. I like you don't cook, I have found that eating raw is good. you don't cook but the food is just as good and varied as cooked. Also there are green smoothies. I like them. they are blended, mixed fruit and greens and the nice thing is you don't even need a recipe
Welcome!! I do a lot of hummus/veggie wraps (my fav is hummus, cucumbers and tomatoes). You can also bring soups to heat up. I like veggie chili, sweet potato + spinach and bean soups. A nice fruit salad is always a nice treat, too. Sometimes a classic PB&J is great!

I'm new to sparkpeople and a recently converted vegetarian (I do eat fish + dairy + eggs to be precise) based on animal rights/being humane. I am seeking ideas for bagged lunches. I'd like ideas for wraps (this week i tried arugula, goat cheese, kidney beans, onions, and hummus-- was pretty good!), things I can eat cold or just via microwave, salads (i get bored with mine, i'm not good at thinking of ingredients to put together). I am not big on cooking, so prefer easy and quick ideas.
Alice laughed: "There's no use trying," she said; "one can't believe impossible things." "I daresay you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."
