I take my lunch to work and usually I pack a can of soup (they now have those handy ones you don't even ened a spoon for) and lots of fruits and veggies. I usually have to put my softer fruit (nectarines and peaches) in a plastic container to get it safely to work.

When I have time and the inclination, I do up a vegetable stir fry (zucchini, eggplant, a little olive oil sauteed in fresh garlic). It fills and keeps me full.

I love sandwiches. I know I am a dork, but I really do. I like putting roasted red bell peppers on some, chutney on others etc etc.

I also am a big fan of the lean cuisine frozen pizzas.

One of the other things that I do is take left overs. I am assuming that you have access to a microwave, but it seems a reasonable assumption. I would make a meal the night before and before I even sit down I plate the food for my girlfriend and I as well as the two carry-in tuperware containers. That way everyone is impressed with my meals the next day. I was actually considered a lean cuisine commercial one day! I always get asked what I am eating because it smells so good! Chicken with shallots and rosemary, greenbeans, and a tiny baked potato, or leftover greek turkey burgers sans the bun (just take 99% fat free ground turkey and throw in some fat free feta, fresh chopped spinach, egg/egg substitute, and a few T seasoned breadcrumbs - mix it up and throw it on the grill). I also like to make flafel out of a box and bring small pitas (i don't "fry" the flafel, rather i make flat patties instead of balls in order to brown them in minimal oil/pam).

Hi JE_SUIS. For a while there I LOVED making the spark people recipe for Sweet Potato and Black Bean Burrito http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-deta
il.asp?recipe=56397 I'd make a GIANT batch of them on the weekend (like 20-40 burritos), and individually wrap them in foil. Then it's quick to pack lunch in the morning. Now I often enjoy getting frozen entrees (there's lots of healthy ones out there), and again I get hot food in the middle of the day, and very quick packing in the morning.

Be gentle, kind, and loving to yourself.

Hey everyone! Thanks so much for the warm welcomes :) Here's another question for ya'll...what are some of your fave meals to bring to class with you (if you do so)? I have a lunchbox, and class ALL DAY a couple days a week, plus an internship...and I don't want to be eating junk food (or spending money, for that matter) every day. I get bored with sandwiches and such pretty quick, so I'm just looking for some of your fave ideas/recipes! :D
