I am relatively new to this too, and I require something that is quick and easy to fix. I am doing the lacto-ovo vegatarianism at the moment. For lunch, I like to pop a potato in the microwave and eat that with a piled high veggie burger. There are also veggie hot dogs, veggie chicken patties, or veggie prepared BBQ, and of course you can eat these with microwave fries or chips (read all labels) or salad/ veggies. I know you don't want to eat salads everyday, but you can be creative with them, such as taco salad or black bean and corn salad with salsa. Other quick things I like are cereal, fruit, soup, homemade veggie tacos, pasta with sauce and bread, etc. Also, frozen vegetarian entrees are convenient to me. So far, I really like "Michael Angelo's" vegetable lasagna and eggplant parmesan entrees. "Amy's" also offers some nice frozen entrees. For snacks, a couple of different things I like are walnuts or peanut butter and crackers. I just suggest that you browse the aisles at the grocery store to find items that work for you. You may enjoy cooking more than I do! Good luck, and I hope this helps.
