usually leftovers.  If I have none a salad or whole wheat baguette and bruschetta or salsa and chips or crackers and cream cheese and yogurt, fruit and a 100 calorie snack pack.

I like to make a big bowl of chili and portion it out over the course of the week. The beans are filling and the spice makes it more exciting than bland sandwiches!

For something really quick I throw whatever veggies I have in a tupperware container and bring some hummus.

I’m all for things I can eat cold or room temp. Our break room is crazy around lunch, so good luck getting a microwave.

I usually bring salad, I’ll chop everything before hand so all I have to do is toss it all together that morning and bring the dressing on the side so nothing gets soggy. Pasta salads you can make ahead are easy & good too.

I love breakfast for every meals, so I do hard boiled eggs, breakfast sausage, and greek yogurt for lunch quite frequently.

Microwave soup is easy too…already comes in the container.  Actually it is one step less than the lean cuisine because you don’t need to stick it in the freezer!!

@kate169:  do you like veggies?  I usually bring a bad of steamers (my co-workers he me) and let shrimp defrost in the fridge.  Or you can buy the bagged salad (just remember to wash it) and chop toppings on a Sunday night for the whole week.  Soup is a purse thrower too:) I’m like you, I like to just walk out the door in the AM- I don’t spend more than 2 mintues in the morning getting my lunches together!

I pre-make/package all my lunches on Sunday afternoon. Usually I like to make big salads. What’s in them varies from week to week – e.g. last week I did kale, veggies, homemade baked falafel and lemon tahini dressing, sometimes I do southwest salads, sometimes asian chicken with peanut dressing etc.

So on Sunday I prep/chop all the ingredients and make the dressing – this usually only takes 30-ish minutes. Then I portion them all into individual tupperwares and have one large jar of dressing that I use throughout the week. LOVE big salads for lunch and love the variety from week to week!

When I worked at night I would try to make mass meals for my Fiance.  One thing I did for him was chipotle type burritos.  I mass made them, froze them, and they are good in the freezer for a good amount of time!
