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).
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.

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....
