Seeing as it was mentioned in another thread about lunch ideas that don't involve deli meat (for those who are choosing to cut it out) I thought maybe we could have a thread with some yummy lunch ideas.

I will admit something straight up. I am one of those nutters who take photos of their food, and lately I have been trying to bring more packed lunches to work in order to save money (I am kind of disturbed at how a salad roll when purchased can cost up to $12, that's insane) so I have a few I can share in photo form.

Salad and cheese wraps, orange wedges, strawberries and almonds.

Roll with leftover eggplant parmagiana, orange wedges, strawberries, banana and a banana muffin.

Leftover tortellini (these were mushroom ones, heated up at work) banana, pear, almonds, muesli bar and yoghurt.

Leftover minestrone soup (heated up at work), a bagel (which I toasted), apple, orange wedges and homemade trail mix.

Leftover veggie rice (heated up at work), strawberries, apple, pear, hommus and crackers for dipping.

Salad, banana, orange, homemade trail mix.

Anyone else have some yummy lunch ideas?

I follow a paleo diet, so I eat waaaayyyyyy more meat than you do. (Looks like you might be a vegetarian?)

Typical lunch for me is either egg salad or chicken salad made with paleo mayo, wrapped up in a lettuce leaf with some sliced tomato and sometimes leftover bacon strips.

I know some preg ladies eschew tuna, but I will allow myself a small pouch per week of light tuna. Plus I eat pouched salmon. So sometimes I'll just have that, plain or with some paleo mayo, and I spread it on cucumber slices or top sliced tomatoes with it like a salad.

Reheated dinner leftovers are a common lunch for me.

I'm not a breakfast eater, so sometimes I'll just have a late breakfast/early lunch: eggs scrambled with spinach and other veggies, and some bacon or sausage.

The paleo diet involves a fair amount of meat. Mostly veggies, but plenty of meat, too. I'm wondering how I'll feel about meat once morning sickness hits with full force. In previous pregnancies the only thing I've wanted to eat in the first tri is carbs, carbs, carbs.

Today is finally Friday and I saved myself all week from going downstairs to the cafeteria. But today is the day! I'm getting my long-awaited grilled cheese and tomato soup - YUMMY!!!!! But normally I'm eating some combination of oatmeal, toast with PB, yogurt and granola, fruits, veggies, almonds, just the basic "healthy" foods. I'm not too wacky. This weekend I want to make those Pinterest egg soufle recipies... I'll make mine with eggs and diced chicken sausage with some white cheddar cheese. YUM! Those would be the perfect morning snack at work.

Oh how I love mac and cheese. Lucky for me (I think) the packet kind flares my lactose intolerance so I have to go to all the effort of making it home-made with low lactose cheeses, so I can't eat it as often as I would like...

Intolerant to red meat and poultry. One bite of either of those and I am over a bucket for the rest of the day. I do eat a lot of seafood though, just usually not for lunch because it stinks up the work kitchen, haha.

(Yes, you counted that right, three intolerances. Plus allergies to egg and raspberries. My stomach and immune system are insane)
