    Default Healthy lunches for me...

    I work 2 jobs - one has a refrigerator and all amenities so taking lunch to re-heat, keep cool etc is easy. My other job which I do 1 day a week I don't have access to a fridge, mircowave etc...

    I'd love to know what people take and how they take it when they don't have amenities at work - looking for healthy lunch options, ideas too please

    TIA!

    Wraps with whatever filling you like and put it on an ice brick to keep it cool and fresh

    That's what I'm missing - the lunch box and ice block!

    Cruskits or corn/rice thins with your choice of topping is good.

    I have a great little lunchbox that has the ice block built in... You can make your lunch the night before and pop it in the fridge overnight and the your lunch is cool the next day. Probably well worth the money if you want things like salads etc.

    I used to work on the road, I generally took fruit and a nut bar or some rice crackers for snacks, and Ryvita crackers, a tin of tuna and a tomato which I would cut up and have for lunch. I used to take a small knife in my kit so that I could cut the tomato when I wanted it, I hate soggy tomato!

    What kinds of fillings do people put in rolls, sandwiches or toppings on rice crackers?

    I'm lacking creativity

    Rice or pasta salads could be a good option too if you get the lunch box/ice block happening? For example today I had rice, red cabbage, cucumber, mushroom, baby spinach and sultanas with tahini/soy/lemon dressing.

    I don't really eat sandwiches often so my lunches are usually like this, very easy to transport too

    Yum! That sounds delish! I will have to get the ice block going I think, sandwiches are good but I need variety too.
