Quick, easy, tasty, healthy, inexpensive lunch at work?

BJK | Aug 3, 2006 07:50 PM

I'm trying to drop a few pounds, and I think that one of the steps down that path is going out for lunch less often. So, when you don't have leftovers to bring in from dinner last night, what do you bring to work for lunch?

Today I stopped at Whole Foods on my way to the office and picked up a (gasp) frozen dinner that I thought was surprisingly good. It was a Kashi brand "Southwestern Chicken" on a bed of some kind of whole grain, and for about $4 (expensive for a frozen meal, cheap compared to even grabbing a sandwich or a salad out), it was quick, easy, tasty, high in fiber, and only 240 calories. And three hours later, I can't believe I'm still satisfied.

So, any other suggestions?
