What Can I Eat For Lunch

Recommended Posts

I would like ideas on what to eat for lunch. I work three days a week and eat lunch at work. I can manage when I am at home but it's those 3 days that are a problem. Does anyone have any suggestions? I don't have any gluten-free bread in the house, and judging by past experience, don't expect to buy any soon. I do like the rice crackers so that helps.

Thanks in advance.

Do you have a microwave and refrigerator at work? If so, leftovers would work very nicely. I also have an awesome recipe for bread/hot dog buns/hamburger buns. They make great lunches along with some french fries or veggie sticks. I also have an insanely good recipe for pizza if you're interested. I love reheated pizza for lunch. :) Really, any leftover works nicely.

I used to take my lunch in individual corningware/pyrex dishes with lids. In the Am I put in a scoop of fresh steaming rice from the rice cooker-either made that am or the night before, some mixed frozen veg.(not thawed) and a main dish from the night before-meatballs, meatloaf, salmon etc., I'd put some dressing in a small container and put this in a larger container and add mixed salad greens from the bagged varieties, then some fruit or a goodie. I warmed up the hot foods at work at lunch time. Everyone was pretty envious but it was very minimal effort. I'm not a morning person! If you don't have a rice cooker, steam the rice in the PM and put it into the pyrex dish and refrig.

I make extra when I cook on the weekends and bring leftovers to work for lunch and reheat them in the microwave. Raw vegetables, that can be eaten cold, fruit and a drink complete the meal

If for some reason I do not have access to a mircowave will bring one of the following for lunch:

Cold Chicken

Peanutbutter and Jelly on Rice Cakes

Tunafish with mayo on Rice Cakes

Tunafish (plain) on Rice Cakes with cheese.

Any Gluten Free LunchMeat on Rice Cakes with cheese and tomatoes

Something along the line of a Chef's Salad to Tuna Salad, don't forget to bring dressing.

I have an Igloo Maxcold lunch box (made for a 12 pack) I keep my lunch in so I don't have to use the refrigerator. Everything is kept cold with blue ice.
