I need some lunch ideas. I don't really like sandwiches or salads-- though I do eat them, but I'd like to find some lunches I look forward to. My favorite lunches are: cottage cheese with fruit, homemade soup, and sushi.

What are you having for lunch today?

I've actually been thinking about that this morning.

Either leftover chicken nuggets from last night that I made or three slices of turkey bolonga on a toasted piece of whole grain bread. Might put homemade soup with one of those options and carrots, cucumber and mushrooms are pretty standard in my lunches as well (and so portable!).

Just like yesterday, Im having leftover spicy lean ground turkey (leftover from when I made turkey tacos on Monday night) - I plan to heat the turkey in the microwave at work. I'm going to add it to a salad to make a healthy taco salad: romaine, grape tomatoes, salsa, red cabbage, a little roasted corn (I buy Trader Joe's bags of frozen roasted corn and just nuke the amount I want), carrot shreddies and a few tortilla strips for crunch. Yummy!

I eat my packed lunch for work throughout the shift, every hour or so. Today I've packed 3 nectarines (60 cal), a baggie of red grapes (200 cal), a stick of string cheese (70 cal), an apple (90 cal) and a 120-calorie box of cracker jacks for a treat at my last break of the night. I had a 400 calorie breakfast and expect to steam up some veggies when I get home from work, if I'm even hungry by then. Or I may just sip a light beer and go to bed.:p

~time2lose: are you talking about those AWESOME green giant steamer bags? I :val1: those things! They're so delicious and so quick and so easy to pack in a lunchbox and you can eat the entire bag and it's only like 140 calories of yummlicious broccoli and cheese... mmmmmmmm :hun:

This is the individual "Just For One" packages - 60 calories. I keep them in the freezer at work. I had two today with my chicken for lunch. I leave most of the cheese so I really do not get all those calories.

I do like the Green Giant steamer bags and the boxes - especially the green beans and almonds!

I made an easy vegetarian chili recipe that I found in the WW in 20 minutes cookbook. I modified it and both the kids and hubby thought it was great.

Veggie Bean Chili

1/2 cup frozen chopped onion
1 1/2 Tb. minced garlic
2 cups mixed veggie juice (I used the high fiber V8)
28 oz. can diced tomoatoes
15 1/2 oz. can garbanzo beans (rinsed and drained)
15 1/2 oz. can black beans (rinsed and drained)
15 1/2 oz. can light red kidney beans (rinsed and drained)
16 oz. bag frozed veggies (carrot, corn and green beans)
1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. ground cumin

Dump everything in a large pot, mix well, bring to a boil, cover, lower heat and simmer for 15 - 20 minutes.

3.5 points per generous one cup serving

I tend to try to cook on Sunday evening and make lunches for the week. It makes it easy...especially where I have a lot of late night events during the week. This week I made a big old batch of stir fry. 1 box of Israeli couscous (also known as 'big couscous') 2 diced chicken breasts, and vegetables (this week it is snow peas, carrots and broccoli. I cook the chicken first, remove it toss in the veggies with a little water so they steam then re-add the chicken and the couscous and toss. I only use a bit of cooking spray and water, no oil and season with a bit of salt & pepper (though you can get creative with spices) This made me 5 lunches with about 3oz of chicken, 1 serving of couscous and 1.5 cups of veggies each :)

Veggie burger lovers...if you haven't tried morningstar black bean veggie burgers give them a shot! They are fantastic!

nelie
05-27-2009, 09:30 AM
YogaGal, I generally don't eat morningstar products because they usually have egg in them but the garden burger chipotle black bean burgers are very good. (I also heard Morningstar may be on path to eliminate egg from most of their products)

Today I have a large salad with chickpeas as my main lunch. Also have some kale/fat free refried beans as a snack.

This week I've made home made falafel which I'm alternating putting in a whole wheat pita or wrap with a bit of feta and diced tomatoes. Super yum. I've also made a crazy pasta salad to have on the side with tri-color pasta, tons of veggies (carrots, peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers) low fat cheese and a light Italian dressing. This week for each sandwich there is 4 falafel balls, 1 serving of feta and 1 diced tomatoes. I heat the falafel in the microwave at work just a bit and then make the sandwich. I bring 1 cup of the pasta salad.

Not sure yet what I'm having for lunch, but I need to decide soon. I'm thinking maybe heading to Potbelly Sandwich Works and getting A Wreck salad (salami, roast beef, ham, egg, veggies, greens).

Best salad I ever had I made a week or so ago. Bed of greens, with sliced grapes and tomatoes, topped with a bit of blue cheese and some pistachios. ANd then... hot microwaved asparagus on top. The asparagus melted the cheese, and it was amazingly numilicious. It was one of those "wow I didn't think it would turn out THAT good" surprises.

:chin: Hmm... never thought of it that way before... But actually, it's named after the stove that is their logo and that decorates the lunchroom.

They have very good, inexpensive sandwiches and salads. And even though it's right downtown, it's not inundated by busloads of touristy kids at lunchtime. This is the time of year that downtown workers in DC do NOT eat at the food courts... it's an absolute madhouse... so I've been "rediscovering" last summer's favorite sandwich places, like Potbelly.

Eel roll is amazingly good. It's the one sushi roll I'll ask for by name. The rest of them just kinda blend together for me. Its a strip of broiled eel, tied onto a roll of rice with some seaweed. The eel is warm and rather buttery-tasting, and contrasts beautifully with the cool rice.

New week, new lunch. I've gone with a simple wrap today. Tuna with tomatoes, pickles and a bit of salad dressing with lettuce and spinach from the garden. First picked veggies of the year!

Nectarine, raw carrots, couple slices of roasted turkey breast, jalapeno pepper with cream cheese. It was good. :)

I was in a mad rush this morning so I grabbed a frozen dinner - they're called Blue Menu, and super yummy! Chicken Cacciatore! and a bit of leftover salad and an apple

Feeling lazy today and it's warm out so I packed 4 oz of turkey breast, 1 slice of low fat cheddar cheese, 100g of cucumber slices and 100g of cherries. 258 calories. A nice munchy lunch good with a book (minus the cherries which are bleeding all over my fingers) I'll probably have a snack of some oatmeal or some jerky later depending on how I feel later this afternoon.

Needed something quick, so cooked up a package of chicken noodles (the Lipton/Knorr ones) and added canned chicken for protein. High in carbs and sodium, but will be able to balance with dinner. Plus I drank vinegar water before eating the noodles so that I wouldn't spike my sugars with that much carb. Also made some green beans sprinkled with balsamic vinegar, but after the noodles I just wasn't hungry (the vinegar drink tends to cut my appetite, too), so I'll probably eat them later this afternoon.

1 cup brown rice, 1/2 cup kidney beans, 1 boca burger, 1/4 slice bacon, all mixed up together and seasoned with tabasco sauce, cumin, salt, pepper, onion power, fresh garlic.

Followed by a snack of edamame a few hours later.

It's 11pm here, but I got out of bed to make my lunch for tomorrow! I KNOW that i won't do it if I leave it for the morning and I'll ending buying something. So yay for me for making it tonight! And while I was cooking, I mapped out the rest of my meals for tomorrow. For lunch I made: 8oz Shirataki Tofu Noodles, 5 1/2 oz grilled chicken, tossed together with 2 tbspn of olive oil, 2 cloves of minced fresh garlic, and red pepper flakes. I also packed 2 tbspn of parmesan cheese to mix into it tomorrow after I re-heat it. Hopefully it's good! It's a good recipe with regular pasta, but I've never made it with the shirataki noodles before.

Today I am having big salad with devilled eggs on the side.

TraceyElaine - your steak with salad really sounded good.

DC Chick - how were those noodles? They are really hard to find up here - only tracked them down in 1 store & haven't picked them up yet. Are they worth the effort?

They are pretty good! you really have to cook them in something very flavorful though. If not, theyve got a weird smell/taste to them. they are worth it though for 80 calories for 8oz of 'pasta'!!!

This week's lunch is Isralei Couscous (aka big couscous), cucumbers, tomatoes, feta and Romano basil salad dressing. I've been bringing a whole wheat mini pita with it this week.
1 box of isralei couscous, 2 cucumbers, 4 tomatoes, 5 servings of dressing and 5 servings of feta cheese. Combine all together in large bowl and then I separate into even portions into 5 re-usable Tupperware containers. For added protein it goes well with tuna or grilled chicken...both cold. Nice and easy and tasty for the summer!

I have been wanting a philly cheesesteak sandwich and chips for awhile now (weeks) so today for lunch I am going to try to fulfill that desire with a Lean Pockets Philly Steak & Cheese (270 calories) and baked Cheetos (130 calories). That is a junkier meal than I usually have but I do that every now and then. I will have carrots and an apple with it to give it some nutritional value.
