I find that having a variety of veggies, cut up and packaged in containers makes for one part of a healthy lunch. I grab a container and go. If you can keep it at work, the spray salad dressings can be used to jazz up the veggies without all the calories of a dip.
Along with that I take 1-2 pieces of fruit with me each day, and some nuts, cheese, etc. for snacks in a premeasured package so I don't over eat.
I also take a small dish of some left overs from dinners. Pasta travels great and I rarely tire of it, so when I do a pasta dish, I make enough extra to get at least 2 lunches for the week. Homemade soup from the weekend along with a whole wheat roll is another simple and tasty lunch option if you have a microwave at work to reheat it.
You could also experiment with chopping up left over meat and adding it to the veggies and steaming them in the microwave with a bit of low sodium soy sauce (or other sauce of your choice) and noodles or rice for a quick left over meal.
