Good suggestions from everyone! Today I had an oatmeal-apple-carrot muffin, a fresh pear, and walnuts for protein. (Choose baking nuts, rather than snacking nuts, for sodium control.) You can also take string cheese, cottage cheese, yogurt, granola bars (although they tend to have more calories than nutrition.) When I was working, I took salad fixings and assembled it fresh. Add cherry tomatoes, a couple of ripe olives, and fresh mushrooms for variety. You still want a nice combination of protein and carbs so you don't get that afternoon blood sugar slump. Low-sodium V8 is a nice potassium boost! I'll bet you will get enough good ideas to last a long while and not get tired of them. Best wishes and good courage!
Life isn't about chance so don't wish me luck. Life is about choice, so wish me courage.

I'm not a veggie, but there's a no meat rule. I bring fish sometimes, but I'm starting to get bored with my options. I do a lot of vegetarian soups & salad, tuna, egg salad, etc, but I'm looking for some more creative options.
Is it just beef or is it all animal flesh? Tuna and chicken are good if you can have those. If not, beans are a good source of protein. Avacado is good... and nuts. You could make salad with those things.
