I work in a supermarket and I am having trouble finding things to eat for lunch. Obviously I can't have deli meats etc but then what's left? I have been having salads lately but I feel like I should be having some sort of protein also during the day. Does anyone have any ideas on what to have for lunch?

Re: Eating well
Ryvitas or cruskits with flavoured tuna and cottage cheese or avocado. I have this for lunch 3 or 4 times a week

Protein: boiled eggs, peanut butter, hummus, fish. If you want to avoid deli meat, can you roast your own beef/chook/lamb/whatever and have it in the fridge ready to go? (Or are we not supposed to do that either?). I like a lot of egg meals, quiche etc. If you heat up deli meat there is no risk of listeria.

You could add some nuts or seeds to your salads, some supermarkets have ready made felafels too. Or get some cruskits and nut butter spreads, hummus or tahinni and fruit. in the health food section you can also find roasted chick beans and beans which may be flavored and taste very similar to roasted nuts . Soups? La zuppa brand make very hearty warm soups with veggies and some with chicken, beans etc too

I also stuck to the La Zuppa soups, and I ate a lot of peanut butter & banana sandwiches!

cook enough dinner so you have enough for lunch the next day.
Whenever we have pasta/spag bol/lasagna i make heaps, freeze and re-heat for my lunch. easy yummy, filling and quick.
If you want a deli meat sanga cook a roast one night and reserve some meat for your lunch.
Taking leftover's to work saves you money too.
