I take my lunch all the time. I usually eat at my desk because we are so busy. I do salads, yougurt, wraps, fruit, etc. I try and make a different salad each time I take one or a different wrap so I don't get tired of one thing.
In summer I like cold soups like gazpacho. I have it with some fruit and yogurt or a salad. I also like room temperature chicken or pork leftover from a dinner. There are also a number of vegetables leftover that I enjoy at room temperature like Harvard Beets, or honey glazed carrots. Good luck!

on cold days you could take nice nutritious soup in a thermos flask,with some wholemeal or granular bread.things like Chile con carne and ravioli in tomato sauce can also be kept hot in a thermos flask as well if it has a wide neck.for days when it`s not so cold you can make cold rice salads,pasta salad and potato salads.when you cook your main meals with rice,pasta or potatoes throw a bit extra in to cook for the salads.the list is endless what you can mix them with.a dressing of low fat yogurt and low fat mayonnaise for the pasta and potato salad.rice doesn`t need a dressing.then tinned sweet corn,tuna,onions cheese,chopped cooked veggies,chopped boiled eggs,pickled gerke and or a few spices.you could also add chopped pieces of cooked chicken or turkey when you want.the list is endless the taste is yours.hope this helps.with all the above suggestions you could have wholesome nourishing meals that keep you within your diet.failing that and just for emergency situations for i think they don`t have any taste.if you have a kettle there is always,cup a soup,pot noodles and rice etc.enjoy.
You could alternate sandwhiches with wraps and salads. Slice up veggies into stickes like celery, cucumber, carrots and dip into hummus. Make trail mix out of dried fruit, cereal, and nuts. Cottage cheese, hardboiled eggs....

I teach overseas, and my daily schedule does not always leave time for lunch. Sometimes I teach a few classes in a row spanning the middle of the day. My break between classes is usually not more than 10 minutes, and I don't have access to a microwave. I bring a sandwich, fruit, yogurt ... but sandwiches get pretty boring! Can anyone recommend recipes for my situation? Or tell me about good options on the Sparkpeople Recipes pages? I need help!
