For a decadent creamy tomato soup, take a jar of quality tomato basil spaghetti sauce and add a cup of fat free half and half (Land O Lakes makes one).

Canned Cream of Tomato Soup made with Skim Milk.
Toast some bread, Spread smart balance light on it. Sprinkle some garlic powder and add a slice of fat-free american cheese. Heat in microwave for 30 seconds. Also eat an apple (optional slice and spread reduced fat peanut butter on it).

How about a nice tuna salad made with light mayo and fat free plain yogurt, diced onions and red peppers, dill pickle relish and salt and pepper.
Serve on top of broccoli slaw...YUM!

If you are in a hurry, my boys like apple slices with peanut butter. They say it really fills them up (they are 19 and 16). Also, peanut butter and banana sandwiches. Get a high fiber whole grain bread and you are set.

Good for you staying away from fast foods and eating healthy!

I agree with the soup idea. Also I make chicken and have it in salads or in wraps. It is easy and fast. You can roast, bake, etc. Tuna salad is also a great idea and you can put some in containers for portion control.

haha...I just made up a big batch of curry the other day. So Good!

The tabouli sounds delicious. I will have to try it this weekend.

Thanks for the ideas I have been getting inspired to try new things. Looking forward to the healthy cooking and eating.

I will make up a big batch of a curry on the weekend and then cook up some brown rice on the side and put the rice in a ziplock bag. Now I have lunch premade for the week.

You could also make a tabouli and have that for lunch for the week. Here is the recipe I like from Spark People. I usually just make up my own but some people need to follow a recipe and this is a good one:

I make a pot of soup or chili, put it in containers for individual servings and freeze then I can defrost one the night before and have lunch with a piece of whole wheat toast with cheese or peanut butter.

Hey, I am interested in finding some good lunch ideas that are relatively fast and easy to make. I am a college student but I do come home for lunch most days. I am incredibly sick of frozen peas and corn in every variety. I am also kind of sick of teriyaki sauce and stir fry.
I generally like to eat a lot of veggies and maybe some easy beans or tofu for my lunch... any good ideas? (or even not so good ideas, i am desperate)

Oh yeah and i forgot to mention that being a college student i am quite short on money so nothing too expensive please....

Thanks so much!

Beth
