  • Pointless article. Where are 7 lunch "meal" ideas? - 1/27/2014 9:53:42 AM

    I found this article to be incredibly boring and useless. Maybe if I were completely clueless at eating healthily and/or at life I would find these tips useful, but honestly? Don't eat chips and a cookie at lunch? Who does that?

    The tips in this article pretty much consisted of eat/drink good things not bad things... Yeah no duh... - 12/5/2013 2:40:56 AM

    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. - 9/14/2012 10:48:10 AM

  • I saved this article because it's awesome! I didn't even think about spreading hummus on my sandwiches and now I'm excited to go grocery shopping! - 6/3/2011 3:40:15 AM

    I pack cheese sandwiches (try pepper jack) with lettuce, tomato and italian oil. Add some veggie chips instead of potato chips. - 6/12/2009 9:38:37 AM
  • 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! - 10/13/2008 7:56:41 AM

    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. - 6/25/2008 12:03:03 PM
  • 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 - 6/25/2008 11:56:43 AM
  • 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! - 6/12/2008 10:28:26 AM
  • 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. - 3/12/2008 5:10:12 PM
