I have been bringing fruit to work. Even when it is cut up fruit, it does not go bad from staying in a container on my desk for awhile.
I do a mid-morning snack, and an afternoon snack. The mid-morning snack has been cut up watermelon, grapes, anything except apples. These are typically cut up ahead of time and stored in the fridge at home. I will get a small cup size container (or baggy), put the fruit in it in the morning, as well as grab an apple. The apple is for the afternoon snack. The cut up fruit is still good when I open it. I also have a slight sensitivity to cold so it allows the fruit to get a little closer to room temperature before I eat it.
The apple I know will last longer, and thus it is the afternoon snack.
I have heard of mason jar salads, which all you need is one or two ice packs to keep it cool until you eat it. There are ways to prepare them where the dressing and the actually lettuce are separated until you shake the jar later. This makes it where lettuce, and things like croutons do not get soggy from sitting in the dressing.
