Thanks for all the great ideas. That will help me plan out a variety of meals for work. I hate eating the same thing day after day. I also have been struggling with wanting to eat something when I get home and this way I will be able to make sure I have a filling meal so I'm not hungry when I get home.

The featured January calender with one month of snack ideas has a lot of things you might be able to use. My favorite is turkey & cheese wrap with spinach, banana or jalapeno peppers a little bit of balsamic/olive oil dressing. Also cottage cheese with fruit.
No fad diets for me!
No one said it'll be easy. It may be really hard. Let's do it right and make it a new lifestyle.
Sometimes I'll cook up a big batch of pasta salad for the whole week. I've done an italian version, a chicken and broccoli version and a turkey one too. I use only whole wheat pasta, bulk it up with veggies and add a little protein. It works for keeping me full and packs easily.

I like hard boiled eggs. I also have a thing that looks like a glass with a top. The top has a compartment inside that can be used for salad dressing. I make salads in it and then dress at the last minute and toss in the cup. Another thing I like is low fat cottage cheese tossed with fresh fruit.

I like to make a wrap with a whole wheat tortilla. I am finding that MANY leftover meats fold up nicely in there. i can add many vegetables. A good tip is to make it in the morning, roll it up and wrap it in a paper towel before putting it in a baggie. That way, you don't have a mess when you take it out to eat (since you're in the clients' houses), the paper towel will catch anything that wants to fall out. There are many flavors and sizes of tortillas for variety.
What would you bring for a cold lunch where you can't re-heat something? I like bringing a lunch bag to work but I work in client's homes where it is discouraged to use their kitchen appliances for ourselves. I like to have something that I can just grab and eat since I'm usually pretty busy. Any suggestions?
