What do YOU eat for lunch?
I usually have a turkey sandwich, with good quality turkey, havarti cheese, ancient grain bread, spinach, tomato, onion, and real mayo. I toast the bread and heat up the meat and cheese in the microwave. It's delicious.1
Wrap with caramelized onion hummus, firm tofu and mustard.0
Leftovers from dinner sometimes. Lately it's a stick of string cheese, a veggie (yesterday was leftover green peas), a pouch of the Starkist tuna creations (buffalo or hickory smoked) and Greek yogurt with Chia seeds mixed in. Oh, and my treat-a grape sugar free Monster...1
Today's lunch was chicken breast, green beans, sautéed mushrooms and acorn squash.0

This is what I like to do too.
I always make more than enough salad for dinner, so I'll take that, with whatever protein we had, for lunch the next day.0
Healthy Choice "simply" chicken fried rice.1
I have a huge salad for lunch each day with spring greens, green onion, parsley, basil, red pepper, jicama, tomato, cucumber, and sunflower seeds with a Bolthouse dressing. I usually add garbanzo beans but sometimes switch up the protein with a different bean, tuna, or chicken.0
Today it was a potato, pork roast, and brussels sprouts with butter & sour cream.
Tomorrow's planned is cooked cabbage and broccoli with butter and a few ham slices. If I'm still hungry I'll add a tomato.
Salads with crispy tofu and lentils or sometimes I have a smoothie bowl with lots of seeds and some protein powder. It is getting colder now so I'm hoping to get into making some soups0
Stuffed green peppers today.0
Someone disagrees that I eat a healthy choice for lunch? I am interested to understand who is spying on me and stalking what I eat for lunch2
I batch cook lunch & dinner every weekend. Lunch is usually chicken breast (prepared different each week), a veggie(broccoli, squash, corn cauliflower or carrots) & a carb (sweet or red potato, brown rice or sometimes cauliflower fried rice).0
Today, as is often the case, last night's dinner left-overs.0

I totally agree. Sometimes it’s just what you want/need.1

My lunch time is my time to unwind a bit from work. I usually go out to eat ... typical fast food/diner type places generally.
Today was Whataburger (not my first choice, but was lunching with my parents), bacon cheeseburger and fries, unsweet tea. 1200cal.
Most of the time I eat within my weight management calories; lunches in the 700-800cal range, not terrible in fat, high protein, so I don't feel bad.0
today I ate an entire package of frozen peas that were heated in the microwave first. that was an hour ago. I'm starving and headed to the kitchen to heat up some chicken and rice.
usually lunch is chicken, rice and beans (seasoned variably to eliminate boredom)0
Today? Two hard boiled eggs and some grapes. That's kind of a pathetic lunch by my standards, though.
I live in California, and the power outages royally messed up my meal planning this week.
Normally, my lunches Monday through Wednesday or Thursday are just leftovers I boxed up from whatever I made for dinner on the weekend and Monday evening. By Thursday or Friday, I've often run out of leftovers and don't have time to cook, so I'll start making sandwiches + a veggie side dish if I've got ingredients, or something easy from my freezer - like frozen potstickers and broccoli, which I microwave and sprinkle some sesame oil, soy sauce and vinegar on.2
Today and most days I had a wrap with arugula Swiss cheese hot peppers.1

veggie burger on toast with pickles, onion, lettuce, etc. and baked sweet potato fries
egg salad (or tofu salad) sandwiches and broccoli slaw
crab salad with Thai chili sauce & tons of veggies
lentils, string cheese & fruit smoothie
split peas cooked with carrots & onions and a scoop of cottage cheese
English muffin pizzas w/ mushrooms & peppers & side salads
tuna melt panini & a peach or pear1
