I also need more healthy lunch bag ideas. I've been doing the pita thing, but it gets boring after a while. I can bring a sack lunch to work, but it needs to be something that doesn't need to be heated since I work in client's homes and need something that I can just grab and eat.

My go to lunches are usually leftovers from dinner. If I don't have those, I do a salad with chicken breasts - like the Perdue chicken strips that are already cooked. Or I make a sandwich - tuna, chicken salad, egg salad - because I get tired of lunch meats. If I do make one with lunch meat, I like using wraps to do something different.
My problem is I usually have to make it the morning before because I'm too busy/exhausted in the evening - plus I have to get three lunch bags ready. This is what I really need to work on more than anything!
I put leftovers in single serving sizes in the freezer and have them when I need them for lunch. Another benefit is the food lasts longer without spoiling. I do this will all leftovers (except for salads). Cindi

I usually just pack up an extra serving of whatever I had for dinner and microwave it at work the next day. You know what the very best ever lunch system is? I did this one year: we had a co-op at work. Five people who like similar foods each claim a day of the week to bring in lunch for five. It's not five times as much work to pack for five as to pack for one, you only have to pack lunch one day a week, and you have the variety of everyone's cooking. I loved it. I need to find a new crew this year.
I make my lunches the night before. You could make a large batch of soup or salad and portion it out into single serving containers for a grab'n'go meal. I use empty spice bottles for small dressing containers.
