    Default What food to take to work??

    Im struggling with what food to take to work so any ideas would be appreciated.

    We usually dont have leftovers that are easy to take to work (steak, chops, sausages etc).

    Im struggling to eat bread at the moment since ive been pregnant. Because I dont have a clue what else to take I usually take a vegimite sandwich but I usually have to force it down at lunch time even though im starving. Sometimes it even makes me retch. So needless to say its not an enjoyable lunch.

    I cant stand tuna, so thats not an option. I also have to go really easy on the salad, veggies & fruit cause if I have too much it gives me diarrhea.

    Theres a microwave at work but no sandwich press or anything like that. I also hate cooking & dont want to spend hours making something complex to take to work.

    I really have no clue what to take to work! Help!!!

    What about corn thins with thinly sliced cheese on them? Or vegemite and cheese? I have a packet in my desk at work at all times because they are so handy. They're nice with baked beans on them too.

    I had toasties most work days when I was pregnant. Would you consider buying a cheap sandwich press for your own personal use?

    Do you think you could stomach soup? There are some nice ones you can buy in pouches these days (handy) or of course make your own.

    Those 2 minute rice cups are great! You could always cut up some of your left over meat and add it in.. Or one of those single serve steam vege packets with some soy sauce =)

    How about making a big pot of soup on the weekend - enough to last you a week? You can freeze some in plastic storage tubs in one person portions then just take what you need. I make a vegetable and lentil soup. Very easy and will fill you up.

    For an easy work lunch, I buy frozen meals such as lean cuisines or Weight watchers. You can buy them for about $4 each when on special and some are actually quite tasty

    When I was pregnant I had a lot of wraps instead of sandwiches. Filled them with things like heated up left over bolognaise or chilli. Soup was good, 2 minute noodles were awesome too! Ryvita with Philly, cucumber sticks etc anything refreshing tended to help the nausea!

    I agree with the pp, I used to take; cruskits, rice thins, wraps, those rice/noodle/ soup microwave cups and lean cuisine dishes.

    Some of the girls at work take a sachet of microwave steam veges and some 3 bean mix (they have it with tuna but it would have pleenty of protein without).

    Also agree with the cruskits/ corn thins. You could also get the individual serves of cream cheese or hommus to make them a bit more interesting (since you might waste a lot if you can't get through a regular tub within a couple of days).

    Thanks!

    Does anyone know if it would be safe to store those frozen weight watchers meals in the fridge all morning at work? There is no freezer.
