    Meal prep is key for me to stay on track at work (we do have a cafeteria here so it's hard to get off track if I come lunchless).

    This week it's very simple ground chicken with green beans, divided into 5 portions. I cook on Sunday to last the week. Sometimes I do salad with protein, or boiled eggs with tuna/pickles. Nothing fancy, but easy that I can make once and log the week when I am tracking.

    I food prepped Sunday, I baked 5 chicken breasts (used different seasonings on all of them) then roasted broccoli and cubed sweet potatoes. It's been a low-cal, healthy, tasty and filling lunch all week.

    Bought sushi at the half price sale a half hour before closing at the takeaway under my office. Popped in the office fridge overnight for lunch the next day.

    Leftovers from last night’s dinner!

    It makes it that bit easier cooking a little extra at night, not having to put in any effort to have a tasty, nutritious lunch.

    Leftovers from last night's raid at the sushi takeaway below my office that does a half price sale a half hour before closing, which happens to be around the time I leave work.

    Usually left overs. Retired now, but even when I was working I'd take left overs to heat up in the micro-stove in the lunchroom.

    Sometimes sandwiches. Especially PBJ's! Love 'em so much I wrote a short story extolling their virtues.🤣

    I work at a high school, so lunches are fairly healthy if I choose to eat here. Pretty much all meals are around 500-600 calories. Everything is whole grains, baked, low sugar, light versions, etc. The food is actually pretty decent.

    Today will be a Italian Sub on WG Ciabatta, spinach salad w/ Light Italian dressing, and apple slices. I get a couple other components (another veggie & fruit), but I take those home. I get a whole meal for only $3.80.

    I do bring leftovers from home often, so I don't always eat here.

    FH and I are doing things that are easy, since I'm back in classes and we're really trying to change our lifestyles during this time. So for lunch at work I am having a Healthy Choice Power Bowl. Tonight I'm making a home chef dinner.

    From the asian takeaway. Rice and stir fried veg with a couple of chicken gyoza.

    Lunch for me is a Turkey wrap with pepper jack/lettuce/pesto aioli, carrots, and blackberries.

    Today I'll be having french onion soup with a chunk of bread and mozzarella. I'll probably eat a yogurt with lunch as well.

    I cook our lunches since between one of my partners doing school online and the other being between contracts, we're all home at lunchtime.

    We do a revolving set of weekly lunch items. Monday is chicken or steak quesadilla, Tuesday is hamburgers, Wednesday is Chili, Thursday is pork fritter, Friday is leftover cleanup from the week's dinners, Saturday is hot dogs, and Sunday is Mexican wraps with a wide variety of ingredients. My lunches tend to be about 400- 500 calories, but that works for me. If I eat a lighter lunch, I run out before dinner is ready and get hangry.
