Since you guys are used to going out to eat a lot, I would just start trying out one new recipe a week, and make enough so he can bring leftovers. Once you start it will be easier to transition to bringing your lunch everyday.

Check out http://www.skinnytaste.com for some amazing recipes! I recently made the mushroom rissotte which was to die for. And for his, you could add some grilled chicken or shrimp to make it a bit more feeling.

Lots of Asian and Indian meals are filling with lots of flavor.  You can make them veg or not.  You can make rice for him and eat yours without it, etc. They’re easy to make more than necessary so you can have left overs. Once you both start seeing your savings grow, that 50-70/week for lunch outs doesn’t seem worth it any more. Good luck!

Elanaspantry.com has some good wheat free, vegetarian meals. She also has some interesting non-vegetarian meals. For low-carb/grain-free meals, I LOVE health-bent.com …her ideas are so cool…but they’re definitely not meatless. My last suggestion would be to look into “paleo/primal” recipes. They are usually really creative and grain-free/low-carb, and I know some of the bloggers are vegetarian and even vegan. 

We eat a modified “paleo”/grain free diet here. We like to try more exotic recipes, too. Some of our favorites are curries served over zucchini or sweet potatoes (allrecipes.com has some good curries), crock pot roasts with onions and lots of garlic, etc. 

Good luck!
