I take/make these 2 dishes A LOT:

couscous (throw in some lemon juice, vinegar & olive oil) w. chic peas and fresh parsley. Squeeze extra lemon juice on the finished dish.

black beans made with garlic, cilantro & lemon juice - serve w. rice or couscous

these take about 20 min. to make and are very tasty!

Wow-that lunch would make anyone jealous. I love this group and am glad I found it..
I like packing a salad with all the colors(lettuce, yellow and red bell peppers, tomato, cukes, ect) and packing the dressing in a little pre-measured container, also maybe some thin small bread item, and a small chunk of cheese..or a yogurt for protien to get me past 2pm....but I'm loving everyone else s ideas!!

I love packing my lunch... but what I love even more is coming up with ways to describe it my coworkers so it sounds really yummy... today I had

A shaved chicken sandwich (deli meat), on a whole grain toasted sandwich thin (orowheat) with queso fresco and chipotle cheese (laughing cow)... steamed broccoli in a light cheese sauce.. (green giant for one 40 cals, baby carrots and salt and pepper popchips! ;) And nice presentation helps too! :)

I have found a super easy and QUICK lunch that so tasty your mind doesn't know that it's all good for you!

I began this post initially by saying I love this recipe and can't remember where I found it and I had begun typing up the directions, when I realized I couldn't remember what I usually put the oven on. I googled it and would you know? I found the recipe and low and behold it was a sparkrecipe lol. Anyway, here it is:

Mini Eggplant Pizzas
www.sparkpeople.com/resource/recipes
.a
sp?category=3&recipe=294062


What I love about this recipe is that it's SO easy, not only to prepare and cook, but to save and reheat as lunch later. The recipe above made me 3 lunches and the tasted didn't suffer from microwaving to reheat at work.

And when I'm feeling for some carbs, I just boil some whole grain spaghetti, pour on some sauce and top it off with the pizza, for a much healthier eggplant "parmesan".

Sometimes I will take a basic sandwich e.g. tuna but I mostly take my leftovers. This is far simpler for me than making something special. I just cook enough for dinner and lunch and then I'm good.

Granola bars are one of my favorites. I also like yogurt, applesauce, hard-boiled eggs, a small piece of cheese or two, fruite, etc. Leftovers are packed often at my house.

I like those microwavable baked potatoes. They even have sweet potatoes, too. I could make an entire meal out of it, but I'm not sure how nutritious it is.

Another favorite is tortilla shells filled with veggies - you can even add deli meat for protein.

I always PLAN to cook on Sunday, but don't always do it. I have shrimp and frozen vegetables that I bring in to work. At work, I also have cereal and milk, a food scale and access to a cafe where I can get free fruit and, if I decide to spend money, can build a salad or augment one from home. I make a lot of one pot meals and measure it out for servings. I like multigrain pasta or brown rice and veggies with chicken or beans or....I use more flavoring instead of cheese (my downfall!). If I add spices and/or green chili, the flavors tell me that this is really good food and I am satisfied...

I love to cook on Sundays for the week. Casseroles, soups, stews, crock-pot dishes. Store and save in individual servings.

I always have to pack my bkf, lun, and 2 snacks the night before. I know I can eat healthy if I pack for myself. I get up early in the morning, and can't even think about food.

On some evenings when I have leftovers such as lean chicken and rice or pasta dishes. I will pack them in individual containers. I also like to throw in some frozen veggies with the leftovers. I then freeze them and when I don't have time to pack a lunch (which happens often) I pull one out of the freezer and grab a piece of fruit to go with it. We have a small refrigerator at work so all I have to do is pull my lunch out and warm it in the microwave. This helps to keep me on track so that I don't get tempted to eat out.

I love to make salads, tuna salad is easy and fast, egg salad. Also, I do a lot of wraps and get everything ready the night before. Also, I make sure I have fruit. Sugar free jello is great to have as a snack.

The new "thin" breads by Oroweat or "FlatOut" wraps with deli turkey and lots of veggies is something that's pretty easy. Also, on Monday take as many lunch fixings as you can think of to work and then it'll all be there for you during the week and you don't have to re-think lunch every day. emoticon

1. Veggie burgers on low calorie muffins (I like the Healthy Life ones). Toast the muffin lightly, microwave the burger & top with mustard. Add a salad or canned green beans (I like to put some curry on mine).

2. I like to take a couple of servings of left over veggies (any) and mix with low sodium boullion for an easy & quick soup. If I have left over chicken, I dice it up and toss it into the mix.

I would like more ideas for things to take to work that are easy to put together and don't require much prep. Need very lo cal ideas. I am just not one who is going to broil a chicken the night before.. although I am quite the chef.. its just lunches that I have a difficult time with.
