I usually pack leftovers from dinner and a salad. I don’t like cold sandwiches. Sometimes I will pack a lot of little things like cashews, babybel cheese, sliced apple and small salad. Strangely I find that I feel the same level of satisfaction from a small lunch as a large lunch so I am now going on the smaller side.
I took my lunch to work daily when I worked, and I would take left overs from dinner the night before, or a sammie, with granola bars, yogurt, baby carrots, pudding sometimes, cut up fruit, a salad with the dressing on the side. I would take extra granola bars with me for my break to eat too. I worked 12 hour shifts and would be starving at 1st break, since I went in at the butt crack o-dawn.
