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!
