    For DH I pack: whatever breakfast item I baked over the weekend (muffin, crumb bar, bagel etc), a sandwhich (penut butter and jelly or deli meat and cheese), some kind of fruit or veggie (sometimes with a jif penut butter to go) and some kind of snack (chips or a sweet).
    For me I make: the same breakfast item, a yogurt, and 2 peices of fruit.

    If you don’t have refrigeration, you really can’t go wrong with fuit/veggies and penut butter!

    Most Sundays, I make a big pot of soup that I divide into 6-8 servings (so 3-4 lunches for me and FI).  Then I add snacks like granola bars, goldfish, raisins, and fresh fruit.  We both buy lunches on the other 1-2 days for variety.

    For most of my life, a simple pb&j or meat/cheese sandwich was what I took *every* day. sooo easy! (It’s weird being married to DH… he won’t just eat “easy” things… it’s like we always need to have lunch-type things like cans of soup on hand!)

    I do not go into the office that often but when I do I usually get something from the cafeteria.

    I bring my lunch every day. It would be so expensive to eat out every day!

    There aren’t any restaurants or cafeterias within half a mile of my work so I bring my lunch 100% of the time.

    I make a lot of “lunch meals” and freeze them. Like beans and rice or leftovers. I also have cans of soup for when I’m desperate and oatmeal. I also bring a lot of lean cuisines. i really get bored by my lunches! But my coworkers don’t eat lunch together, so I’m okay eatting crummy stuff at my desk.

    It changes weekly.  But usually on Monday’s during my lunch hour I go to the grocery store and buy enough lunch for the week and keep it here at the office so I don’t have to pack something every night.  Sometimes Its lean cusines and salad, sometimes it sandwhich stuff, sometimes soup.  It really just depends on the week.  And it’s much cheaper and nicer to my waist line to do lunch this way rather than hit up the fast food drive thru everyday Smile

    I’m a student too, and I’m usually on campus from 8am-6pm most days, so I definitely know about the ripping and running around. During this time of the year, I don’t work about keeping my lunches a certain temperature, because it’s so cold outside anyway. Just leaving my lunch in the car in 20 degree weather is just as good as leaving it in the fridge if you ask me. When it starts getting warmer, I worry more about my food spoiling outside of the fridge. As a solution to this, I just try to pack meals that freeze well. For instance, I make a huge pot of soup at the beginning of the week, divide it into appropriate lunch time portions, pop them in the freezer, and just throw them in my school bag in the morning.

    I used to do frozen stuff, but trying to be healthy and not eat food w/ lots of preservatives, etc.  So, I usually bring yogurt and granola, veggies (carrots or celery), almonds and dried fruit, string cheese, an apple… I kinda eat several small ‘snacks’ a day vs. a big lunch.  Sometimes I bring peanut butter to dip celery or carrots in.. protein:)  It varies….
