I'm lucky that my workplace has refrigerators and microwaves in the lunch room, so I always bring leftovers. I haven't had a sandwich for lunch in ages. When I cook out on the grill, I put on extra fish and steak. For lunches, I bring the grilled meat, frozen vegetables, fresh fruit and a salad (the only thing that really requires any preparation). I've had a lot of envious comments about my lunches but I let everyone know how easy it is.
This was very helpful, I am excited to hit the Grocery with these ideas. It will save money in the long run and hopefully get me on the right track for weight loss!

Good ideas. The best thing that I can do to stay on track is PLAN AHEAD. Every night before I go to bed, I plan what I will be eating for breakfast and lunch the next day and get it ready. If I don't, I end up at the Chinese buffet with the gals I work with.
Love wraps or pita pockets - make my own, easy. shove some spinach, red bell peppers, alvacado, maybe cut up some sun dried tomatos...little cheese- I like a bit of crumbled feta - maybe some dark red kidney beans?? whatever is on hand...some brown or white rice. If you eat meat throw some on there. Wrap it up - and go. I use the cold bags from Trader Joe or somewhere ($1.99) and put my frozen water bottles in there to keep it cool. Throw in some apples, bag of almonds, walnuts, you get the picture and I'm happy for the 10 - 14 or longer hours I'm away from home during the school year. Now, I love oranges, grapes and all kinds of fruit and lots of veggies, so when I have energy, I put alot more together because in school pepole just shower us with suger stuff that I just can't eat!! donna
I bring a sandwich with thinly sliced leftover meatloaf on extra thin bread with light Miracle whip along with some snow peas or radishes instead of chips. My workplace isn't strict, so I can eat half my sandwich around 11am and the other around 3pm. It keeps me from hitting the vending machine!
Peanut butter and bananas spread on a whole wheat tortilla; hummus or any beans you can tolerate (love the Beano!) mashed up, mixed with a little mustard, yogurt or mayo, and finely minced veggies (think celery, peppers, carrots, etc) spread on a piece of rye bread; cold rice salad with chopped veggies (add a little curry to spice it up); a nice gazpacho or other cold soup; hard boiled eggs with a dip; or some whole grain crackers with cheese - maybe try a little of a different kind of cheese with your favorite. A smoothie might be a nice change of pace.
Casey, I don't have alot of time to cook through the week either so on weekends I cook and freeze food in portions. Maybe that will work for you.

They now make individual brown rice cups that just need to be heated up, what a great idea for lunches! A thermos is a great way to go too - with soup or other hot foods. I also mix up a chicken breast salad or tuna salad that will last me several days.
