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.

Yes, Marie, they do. Check Target or Walmart.

I pack my husband's lunch. I like to give him 'interesting' leftovers and lots of choices. If an extra chicken thigh keeps him from making a fast-food run, it's worth it.

Unfortunately I live in a place where so many of the items suggested can't be bought -- for example, if I want roast turkey meat instead of bologna, I would have to roast a turkey myself! The only meats available to buy for sandwiches are processed pork cuts (ham, sausage, etc). I find it very difficult to cook in the evenings in order to make a sandwich for the next day. The leftovers from my dinners (tossed vegetables, soups) don't lend themselves to sandwiches, and I don't have access to a microwave. So it's usually an apple, and some bread and cheese. Very boring. I just don't know what to do! This article doesn't really help my situation.

Great ideas. Lunches from leftovers sounds great.

Excellent tips. I will begin to make wiser choices with my bag lunches.

I like this article very much. Great tips for lunches & snacks. I will be trying the tip for a great salad with the chick peas & corn. Sounds yummy.
