I just started school today, and I am looking for ideas to bring for lunch. As of right now we dont have a microwave (its broke).. I am looking for ideas that are healthy, with not a lot of carbs. I have never really had to pack a lunch before so I am new to this, so I hope you guys can help me out!

I’m not a huge sandwich person but the easiest thing I can come up with is a sandwich (I usually do lunchmeat like turkey or chicken), a yogurt, and I bring fruit for a snack later.

I usually do Greek yogurt and a piece of fruit. Sometimes I’ll do string cheese/wheat thins and fruit.

You could do a Greek salads with tomatoe, cucumber, olives, feta cheese and lemon juice, throw some chick peas in for some added protein. Sandwiches are great and easy too. Apples and peanut butter is a great snack and is pretty filling.

I agree with Greek yogurt. Maybe bring some trail mix (almonds, raisins, dark chocolate, cheerios, etc.) too; I keep that in my desk at work. Also, grilled chicken and veggies – if you can make enough on Sunday for the week and then pack it into tupperware so you can just grab it and go in the morning.

I can’t eat bread (no gluten!), so I just do “wraps” but I use lettuce instead of a flatbread….low in calories, and no carbs! Plus you can make up the calories with extra lunch meat so they’re more filling 🙂

The healthiest thing you can do is bring a giant salad. I put mine in a jar (I am anti-plastic) and I like Annie’s Goddess dressing. I also like bringing yogurt, dried mango, and walnuts.

For lunch or dinner i really like the Lean Cuisine Chicken with Wine Sauce frozen entrees. They are delicious and only 3 Weight Watchers points. For a meal not needing a microwave you could bring a salad or baby carrots with grilled chix or even turkey lunchmeat. For Breaky – i always like to eat either a banana or berries with yogurt and bran buds. They really helped me lose some weight for my wedding and kept me satisfied.

I usually do salad, 1.5 c of lettuce or spinach or the mixed stuff, 1/2 cup chopped cucumber, tomoto and peppers, 3/4 cottage cheese (or 3/4 chopped chicken breast or a mix of both), lemon juice, sea salt and pepper to taste, and an apple.
Or Salad, with 1/2 cup chopped apple, 1/2 can tuna, 1/2 cup cottage cheese, pepper, lemon juice and sea salt as needed.
