I plan ahead for my week at work: bring 5 pieces of 5 or 6 different fruits with me on Monday, and eat one of each every day throughout the week.
This week, I packed 5 each of:
Lemons (I slice one in the morning and put it in my water glass for the day)
I also have a bag of baby carrots to dole out a serving or two of veggies. I usually eat another serving or two of veggies with dinner when I get home. I find it's easier to eat 1 piece of fruit every hour or so than it is to cram in 5 at a time. You can change up what you bring, so if you need more veggies, swap out (or add in) a couple of veggies. I usually try to bring veggies for lunch. If I cook veggies, I do a big batch on the weekend and pack them out in individual servings.
Disclaimer: I am not a vegetarian. I usually stack up proteins with lunch and supper.
