A basic salad spiced up with different main ingriedents is nice for me to take to work. You got your basic lettuce; iceberg/romaine, tomato, corn, cucumber, and a can of tuna in water. A few whole wheat pasta screws, s&p and walah.
Variations are, fresh red pepper, shredded carrot, leftover chicken, thawed frozen green peas, maybe some deli ham? If you have a low fat/low calorie cheese then that's also great.

I'm trying to do different things for lunch this year to make it more interesting. So I'm adding seeds and nuts or fruit to salads, I'm using sandwich thins for my sandwiches. They are really good and only 100 calories and I use the whole wheat ones.
One of my favorite lunches to bring to work is an English Muffin-lite version - toasted and topped with a cooked Morning Star veggie burger. I love horseradish mustard on them! I add some veggies & fruit & call it good. Another of my favorites is leftover veggies from dinner (at least 1 cup) and some cut up chicken breast. In the microwave I heat up some water and low sodium Boullion (to dissolve it), add the veggies and chicken and heat to warm & enjoy my "quickie" soup.

Thank you ALWAYS, I have just started enjoying hummus, but like you said, unless you fix it you don't know what is in it. Mind sharing a basic recipe and things you could add. I am really clueless, I know chickpeas but thats about it! The one I eat taste alittle garlicy.
i usually make hummus at home this way i know what is in it. i vary it depending on what i have on hand. today i finished hummus with mushrooms. you can use it with a salad or on whole wheat bread. you know they advise small meals and one way is to take part of your big meal and eat it at lunch. as long as you have a fridge at work no problem.

I recommend packing some pasta dishes and just reheat at work. You could also pack a salad and heat some chicken breast up for it. healthy leftovers are always good. It's soup season too! Break that crockpot out girl and whip up a delicious chili!!

Just wondering if anyone has lunch ideas for office that only has microwave. I also need to boost my protein (without much fat). I have been bringing deli turkey or ham and having it on a pita/tortilla or salad but that is getting old. Any ideas would be great!
