I take time on Sunday to make my lunch for the week. I eat the same thing all week but I change it each week . Here are some ideas - Head to the farmers market, get a bunch a veggies to make the following:
Vegetarian chili
Salad with tons of veggies with tuna or chicken on top
Low-cal/low-fat veggie quiche (made with egg beaters and laughing cow cheese)
Spaghetti Squash pasta sauce and ground turkey

Hope that helps!

I am more concerned with time than money. I buy this stir fry mix - it's basically a bag of pre-cut broccoli and cauliflower ad carrots. I eat that with low fat salad dressing or hummus or guacamole. I am not sure if salad dressing is bad since it has lots of preservatives, but I have a lot and I need to use it up. I sometimes eat an apple with a cottage cheese cup. For lunch I get premade salads from Wendy's or Lavash Flatbreads with hummus and hard boiled eggs. Those foods all pair carb with protein and make you stay full. Any other ideas?

I just set out a frozen tilapia fillet. I got a 3-pk from Kroger awhile back and I'll eat it with some frozen veggies and maybe brown rice.

I usually pack a ton of snack-type foods or a sandwich and some fruit.

For sandwiches I get the sandwich thins and put turkey and cheese on it. Then I change up what else I put on it...fancy mustard, avocado slices, pickles, low-far chipotle mayo, or really whatever else sounds good. (I do that because eating sandwiches everyday gets SO boring!)
Because produce can be expensive, I watch the ads that grocery stores put out and buy whatever fruits & veggies are on sale that week.
I've also recently become a huge fan of frozen "steam fresh" veggies. I can take the whole bag to work & just pop it in the microwave.

I also am a big fan of wasabi-coated peas & almonds

Have you looked at the recipe area? They have a lot of great food ideas that you can make... I do a lot of cooking on sunday and will make two or three different "family" entrees so that I have many options to cook and to eat as well as not having to think about the meals when they come up. Its more of a grab and go

I’d like some ideas for lunch at work with some pretty specific qualifications…
Easy
Inexpensive
Healthful
Something that I won’t get bored with (so maybe a few choices that I can switch up and I can’t just eat a different salad every day with different ingredients, plus, salad bars are too expensive for what they are)
Also, I don’t want to do the frozen meal thing because they have a lot of sodium and preservatives.
So what are you guys having for lunch every day to stay on track and not break the bank?!?
