Something I've found that helps me with ideas is the kids lunches articles here on SP. You can find them under articles about nutrition and healthy family, I think.

How about a wrap w/peanut butter and banana?

Or leftover rice/salsa/veggies/meat in a wrap, or as a bowl? You could get those single serve brown rice things (shelf stable) and add to them.

Taco meat salad (made with lean gr beef/turkey), or in a burrito, or even over rice or pasta Add lots of veggies to bulk it up.

Soup, salad and a quick 'cheese toast'? You could toast the bread before hand, then micro the cheese at work.

Tuna, ham, chicken, salmon salad with low fat crackers and fruit.

Make a large fruit salad and divide it up during the week to go alongside your main meal, or as an afternoon snack.

How about the precooked shrimp (frozen aisle) over pasta/rice with a light sauce/dressing?

Homemade chicken fingers, burgers, sweet potato fries (baked, of course).

Don't forget nuts and baked chips as sides, maybe a mini muffin or tartlet for dessert.

Again, check out the kids lunch ideas. I think many of them look delicious, and just right for grownups, too.

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.

I make extra chicken breasts and take those to work along with either a salad, fruit, or make a wrap with it. You can also make homemade soup and take that along as well.

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!!

Who needs luck when you've got skill!!

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!
