Do you pack a lunch or do you have to eat from your work cafeteria/snack bar? I enjoy making my lunch to take to work. That way I have total control. I also make sure that I have enough food to keep me from getting so hungry that I have to visit the candy bar place.

I don't know what you usually eat, but I have, in my lunch bag, today, two peaches, cut up. A large salad with armenian cucumber, onions, a scant T of golden rasins and 1 1/2 oz cubed pork loin with 1T low fat poppy seed dressing. Also, a scant half cup of Good Housekeeping diet soup, and a sliced, vine ripened tomato with 1 tsp of balsamic vinegar and 1 tsp of fancy olive oil. Two Wasa crisp crackers and a few grapes.

Actually, one of the peaches belongs to breakfast, and included in the lunch are two snacks.

I tend to go easy with a nice big salad w/ lowfat dressing and a lean cuisine. But if you can cook your lunches my favorite is to do some brown rice and then saute a chicken breast with some veggies and teriyaki sauce and pour it over the top.

Today I did cold boiled shrimp mixed with cukes, shredded carrots, tomatoes and baby spinach...tossed it with newman's Lime vinegarette and croutons...amazingly good with a light citrus taste...sometimes i add sundried tomatoes to tuna with light mayo and salad veggies...high protein, lower in carbs.
