Great idea! I do variations of some of things listed. Crockpot potatoes with meat and maybe a little rice. Rice and beans with some chicken sausage. Tuna with avocado (rather than mayo, but I do add a tiny dab of mayo as well) with a slice of bread or crackers and maybe baby carrots and hummus.
Once you get going, the ideas will flow.

Right now, I'm eating chicken breast, rice crackers, zucchini and a clementine. Diet lemonade is my beverage.

I make my own little version of sliders with ground turkey instead of beef. weigh out 2 oz gr turkey and grill or panfry (no oil) use a bit of PAM, thn you can put them in a small cotainer in the fridge til you need to take them to work with you. For bread I like pita, flatbread or sadwich thins. you can add whatever sauces, veggies you like to your sliders. I also season the meat with different herbs and such.
i LIKE TO MIX FAT FREE COTTAGE CHEESE WITH TOMATOES, CUCUMBERS, OR ANY RAW VEGGIE YOU LIKE. I ADD SOME TUNA OR COOKED CHICKEN FOR PROTEIN. 2 OR 3 WHOLE WHEAT CRACKERS GO GOOD WITH IT.
The first step in getting somewhere is by deciding not to stay where you're at.

I like having pita sandwiches for lunch.
I also do 'rice bowls' with brown rice, veggies, and some protein (chicken, steak, etc) with a little soy sauce or teriyaki sauce.
What sort of food do you like to eat? I bet you could make some lunchable version of that...

In the summer I love to do stuffed tomatoes and a fruit salad. I stuff with egg, tuna or salmon salad. In fall/winter I enjoy my homemade soups.

I have lately been running into the challenge of not knowing what to make myself for lunch. You can only eat so many salads and lean cuisines before the thought makes you feel less than hungry. Everything that sounds good is cheesy or is a sandwich and with bread being 100 calories a slice I don't want to do that.
Does anyone have any ideas for good healthy lunches??
