Lunch seems to be the most boring and unhealthy meal of the day, unless I have left-overs from the night before. (Rare though, as DF takes them to work usually.)
I'm not a big fan of sandwiches or boring salads (the only type I am motivated to make for myself, you know just the garden salad type)
I just seem to have such little motivation so end up whacking a couple of bits in the bread for toast or planning my shopping trip around lunch; "oh, while I'm out I'll grab something for lunch"
What do you do for lunch if you're home?

Oh my gosh, I soooo relate to what you're saying and I do exactly the same! I am so uninspired with my lunches these days and agree that it is a boring meal of the day and I am a bit of a foodie, but when I get stuck into the house work, the kids, and the day in general, I can't be inspired or motivated with my lunches.
So I usually just have salad with tuna, jalapenos, capers, spanish onion, tomato, cheese and olives day in day out. (at home).
Home sandwiches bore me, so if I ever make them, I make them on Ciabbata bread or turkish bread and have my favourite fillings of smoked salmon, cream cheese, spanish onions and capers.
Other than that, I will have toasted sandwiches, ham, cheese and tomato or tuna.
Soup and/or leftovers.

I'm rubbish with lunches. I usually have leftovers (I try to keep the freezer stocked) or a toasted sandwich or I make a basic salad.
On occasion I'll make something a bit more effort-filled like mini pizza using English muffins as the base or a fancy wrap/sandwich of some sort.
