What are you eating for lunch?

I'm so bored with my lunches these days. What are you eating for lunch lately? I'm still not doing the deli sandwich thing and I really really just want to eat a deli sandwich. I eat the toasted ones, but I want a cold one.

Today I have a salad, with some leftover baked chicken and some fruit. I typically do a salad, a frozen burrito, a soup, a PBJ sandwich and then I go out to lunch on fridays.

I need some quick ideas though, bc I have no time these days.

I ate some pizza rolls and a Twix bar. :rolleyes: LMAO I don't usually eat like that for lunch, I had to come home early because there was a heating/cooling guy here waiting on me and no one bothered to let me know he was coming.

I can't help ya on this one. Breakfast and lunch don't really "exist" for me, I eat crackers or something throughout the day so hopefully I'm not so hungry that I feel the need to eat a meal because that hurts my stomach.

I usually try to make enough dinner so that I can have leftovers the next day for lunch. If that doesn't work (like I don't have leftovers), I do a sandwich (I totally do the cold ones - I know, I know, bad Alissa!) and some canned soup, or some fruit and veggies. If I didn't have to watch my carbs, another idea would be a baked potato with cheese and what not with a salad or some soup. You can also pre-make some things like burritos and freeze them yourself to throw in your lunch, but I'm not that enterprising. Hmmm.....what else? What about hummus and veggies and pita chips? I love hummus, and that's easy enough to throw together. Or if you have access to a toaster at work you could bring a bagel and some cream cheese, and then whatever veggies or soup sounds good on the side.

Yeah I do a lot of leftovers. What about the frozen meals? I was eating some of the Stouffer's ones the other week and Lean Cuisine and Healthy Choice have some tasty ones as well. I tend to want something hot for lunch and have NO desire for a deli meat sandwich but that's just me.

I do bring hummus and veggies, its usually my afternoon snack along with some fruit and or trail mix. I was doing leftovers for awhile, but somehow I dont seem to have anymore. Im eating more at dinner I guess. I might get some frozen meals next time to switch it up.

Lunch for me is usually leftovers-I cook large portions to be sure we will get at least two dinners and hopefully one or two lunches for me out of it so I don't have to cook as often. If we don't have leftovers, I bring a sandwich-I'm not very creative when it comes to lunches, I'm afraid.

I struggle with lunches too. I'm not a big sandwich person, never been, so it's often leftovers. Sometimes I'll make a big pot of soup or chili or something like that and freeze it in portions, but not often. If I'm feeling really cheap, I'll just do a bunch of rice and beans and take those.
