Healthy quick lunch/take out near LMU?

sablouwho | Apr 16, 2008 01:59 PM

I'm taking an all-day class at LMU one Saturday/month and hoping for some suggestions of some decent take-out food as-close-as-possible to campus. (I am not too into the food offerings available on campus). I doubt I have time for a sit-down meal (unless it's super fast) so take-out friendly is preferable.

My lunch break begins around noon and there is exactly 1 hour before I need to be back in class. I will have a car with me so I can drive to a nearby place. I can eat once I get back to class if necessary--we sit at big round tables so I can spread out and eat if need be (don't have to balance food in my lap!)

I'm trying to limit my starchy carb intake so if there are any places that have, say, good salads (with animal protein on top) or other kinds of food that are compatible with a South Beach Diet style of eating (as opposed to pizza and pasta), that would be great. Any ethnic foods are welcome and I'm not vegan and I don't insist on organic. I am pretty much looking for a serviceable meal that is a step up from the campus food service options. Anything beyond that is icing on the cake (though I'm trying to avoid icing and cake--sign!)

TIA from this Chow-newbie!
