Hallooo

I'm trying to find tasty and easy lunches for work. (Preferably not needing to be warmed - no microwave at work)

Any ideas? (Trying to stay away from white bread though)

Thanks!Very Happy

An apple, almond butter (Justin's sells little pre portioned squeese pack) mini-baby bell cheese (they are the small round ones in wax, perfectly fine out of fridge for several hours. I buy the light ones, only 50 calories) A pouch of tuna (no draining required)

When making dinner on Sunday night or Monday night, I like to make 2 or 3 extra servings and save them for leftover lunches during the week! You're already cooking, so why not just make extra? I'll throw in some snacks like a cheese stick or a small spinach salad (with lemon juice for dressing!) on the side Smile

If you get a little thermos, it opens the door to having all kinds of warm homemade soups and leftovers at work.

And I agree with Leslie P.; babybel is great! I like nuts to munch on, too.

I typically will do shakes during lunch just for convenience, and the special K bars are pretty good too

Check out this blog. She makes salad in a jar - everything you need in one jar. She'll make several at the bringing of the week - ready to grab and go. You just have to make sure the dressing is at the bottom and does not touch the greens. be creative this your ingredients, so you don't get bored.

I make wraps using a whole grain/high fiber wrap - I love cheese, hummus, spinach, etc. Lately, I've been making the wrap with deli turkey, cheese and mustard. Then I make a big salad with spinach and broccoli. The salad usually fills me up before I even dig into the wrap! I also take as a snack some plain greek yogurt and jam or fruit and individually portioned cheese sticks.

Not having a microwave would be a killer for me. I would eat a Met-Rx meal replacement bar or something similar. The Big 100 bars are very filling when you eat them with a lot of water.

I think the thermos idea is great idea if you want a warm lunch.

I like an ounce of walnuts (provides alot of fat), tuna with mayo & celery (if you have a frig there), I too like the babybel light or string cheese, diced strawberries, atkins peanut butter bar, angus burger from mcdonalds without the bun, just bring your own whole wheat low carb high fiber tortilla in a ziploc baggie. I carry them every time I am on the road as a substitute for bread. 6 net carbs 12 grams of fiber!

You can make some really healthy, great tasting sandwiches and have one with a side of fruit. Light whole wheat bread with one tablespoon of almond butter and some all fruit spread with a banana on the side if one of my faves. Smile

This is a good starting point, but you really need an exercise plan to maximize the results. Even if it is just walking. Get moving!
