Hi Mary,
I'm from San Joaquin County, CA...the heart of agriculture for the nation! LOL, I too have a difficult time planning lunches. I get in a rut. My doctor wants me to lower my cholesterol...so now there's no more delaying, I have to change the way I eat. He suggested I do the frozen meals, but I actually like to eat fresh. (I do keep a supply of Healthy Choice or Smart Ones for "emergencies"!). The Doc also gave me a sample menu for 1400 calories. Some of the lunches were pretty good ideas, I thought, but take a little prep time.

One of them was tuna with 1 tbsp mayo (I use 2 tbsp LIGHT mayo) with diced green onions and celery....stuffed into a scooped out tomato. Yummy if you like tuna.

Another was similar...but use chicken instead and stuff into a pita. I love zucchini and tomatoes so sometimes I will slice up zucchini and dip it into Hidden Valley light ranch dressing.

If I'm in a hurry in the morning, I'll grab a can of Progresso soup -- I really like the new high fiber chili with 10 crackers or so. Low cal, pretty good tasting, keeps me full.

Hope this helps....anyone else? Suggestions? Sandwiches get boring!

Hi! My name's Mary, and I live in Sonoma County, California. I'm sick of fast food or odds and ends for lunch. I'm looking forward to meeting all of you and getting some new ideas.
