TL;DR I'm bored with my lunchbox. What would be not boring in my lunchbox? (And wont eat my face) I need some new ideas for packing a lunch. I work for a huge company and travel all over half a state. I eat in a van or the break room of an office a lot. But it's not my office so I don't want to "make myself at home" and use their microwave.....especially if their employees are trying to get in and out and eat. My favorite way is to pull down to the local park or waterfront for a good view during lunch. I work in quite a few rural towns that don't have the usual suspects with regard to food so Subway and other suggestions like that won't help me in this case. I can afford to stop by a window whenever I want, but I prefer not to. I'm over junk food. I have made wraps and sandwiches with some not-so-awful chips. I have been the route of just throwing a bunch of fruit and nuts in my cooler and snacking all day. These all sustain me, of course. But they are boring (unless you have some ideas for a wrap or sandwich with some flavor to it...or something I can do to my nuts to make them not so boring ). I'm not opposed to spicy hot foods....in fact I like them. I'm fine with bars (like protein or granola). I have been through what is at most grocery stores though and those are getting old. If you have a new suggestion for that kind of thing I'm open to it. I can order whatever online as well. I'm not really a picky eater. But I'm just over junk and bored with what I have been packing. I seem to lack imagination when it comes to food. I need to borrow the TBOT collective imagination! I'm not anti anything (bread, gluten, etc). No allergies. I'm even cool with some dip ideas I can dunk carrots in and whatnot. (Gotta work carrots in even without a poll.) Rules.... 1) Gotta be cold. I have access to a microwave and whatnot in my office, but I am rarely there. When the weather gets colder I may bring a thermos of soup or stew, but for now it's too hot for that. So I will be packing this into a really nice soft cooler, but I have half a dozen other ways of transporting food and keeping it cool if need be. 2) Healthy(ish). I'm at a point where I want to put less junk in my face. It doesn't have to be totally clean or without fat. But healthy(ish). No, I'm not going to put standards on this. I just don't want to throw junk in my face. Prep time and budget are less of a concern for now. I get up early and taking a lunch will still be cheaper than eating out. @Joe Nerve is requested to stop by when he gets a sec. @slobake and I would appreciate it if you keep your TNC suggestions to yourself. Even on bread, it's awful. Got it? Help me out please! Thanks.
