    This week, I made Greek turkey meatballs (with oregano, grated onion, parsley, oregano, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, and a touch of lemon zest). Also made tzatziki and a cucumber/red onion/tomato/feta salad. Been taking some to work every day for lunches, along with a whole-wheat flatbread. About 520 calories for all this!

    Mostly I have been eating 1/2 of a sandwich for lunch, and using the microwave to cook frozen broccoli, carrots, or Brussels Sprouts. I often put Trader Joe's Thai Red Curry sauce on them.

    This week I had tofu scramble with red onion, yellow, green and red capsicum peppers, baby spinach and shredded plant based bacon topped with sliced grape tomatoes, vegan feta and spring (green) onions and served with a side of coleslaw.

    I'm able to come home from work and eat with my husband (he works from home). So we have a big variety of lunch meals during the week. Common lunches include some of these:

    lentils & smoothies
    TVP taco salad with lots of veggies
    black bean & mushroom or spinach quesadillas
    soup & crackers and fruit
    salads with protein and cookies w/ tea
    veggie burgers with lots of toppings
    English muffin pizzas
    deli sandwiches w/ sweet potato "fries" (baked)
    split peas, cottage cheese & fruit
    leftovers like fried rice with edamame or bbq tofu & steamed veggies

    I aim for about 400 calories and up to 500 calories at lunch. I need a pretty large meal at that time of day to keep me going for the afternoon and I don't snack at all, so it works for me.

    I also go out to lunch 1 day/week with my dad and that is typically in a restaurant, anything from fast food to nicer places. I usually stick with an entree, less bread, healthier sides. Works out well.

    Lately a wrap of some sort. I was doing chicken salad, this week I'm doing turkey with cheese and broccoli salad. Plus some raw veggies to dip in ranch.

    Today wa leftovers from last night: homemade oven baked honey garlic chicken, homemade fried rice and mixed veggies :)

    Generally I take leftovers from what I had for dinner the night before but the leftovers are a smaller portion than my dinner portion. If my dinner portion was around 800-1000 calories, my lunch portion is around 450-600 calories. If I don't have enough leftovers to take for lunch I will get a soup/salad at work. Some days I will even get crazy and order Chinese takeout or pizza :p

    Lunch: Leftover homemade chicken parmesan, chopped up and placed in a Carb-Smart 45 calorie wrap. A bit of cheese was added. This was delicious!

    i got a Vietnamese takeaway at my desk today. Grilled chicken bun cha with a spring roll.
    That looks delicious, but I'd probably gain 3 or 4 lbs if I ate that.

    yum, i always wanted to try one of these and a place opened up near me that makes them. About how many calories in that?

    Today's lunch: Simple salad with lower calorie dressing. Albacore tuna salad with 1 boiled egg and 1 avocado on whole grain toast with spaghetti squash, a little butter, salt/pepper. (had another portion of tuna salad that I ate without bread) Total calories: 655 with 49 grams of protein.

    Yesterday was the rest of a sausage and egg quesadilla with salsa that I got over the weekend when we went out for breakfast.
    Today will be a repeat of last night's dinner. Southwest shrimp salad with romaine, shredded cheese, red peppers and roasted corn.

    This week I’m having homemade spicy pumpkin soup with some yogurt-curry-garlic marinated chicken on the side for added protein.

    Soup was split into 11 servings, so about 340 cals per bowl. And the chicken is about 185 cals (for a little less than 3 oz). I try to make my lunches fall in the 450-550 calorie range.
