How about hummus (in a small container), pitas and veggies? Hummus = 1 can beans, drained + 2 Tb. each olive oil, tahini (or more olive oil), lemon juice + 1 garlic clove (all pureed or mashed)<br><br><br><br>
Or, if you can make rice the night before, you can mix it with canned beans (rinsed) and tomato sauce or salsa.<br><br><br><br>
Have a look at this thread, too: <a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/showthread.php?s=&threadid=5114" target="_blank">http://www.veggieboards.com/boards/s...&threadid=5114</a>

Natural Ovens makes a zillion different flavors of bagels that are generously sized. "Brainy" flavor has bits of carrot right in there, we love those! Just add some Earth Balance and a sprinkle of nutritional yeast for something different.<br><br>
You could also do a cool peanut noodle recipe. I don't have one on hand, but I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to find.

I always bring fresh fruit to my desk everyday.. until you get used to grabbing it on your way out every morning it's slightly a pain in the butt. If you cut up lots of veggies the night before though then you could just get one of those little cooler bags and bring whatever needs to stay cold that day.<br><br>
CookingVeg has a good idea with the hummus, and if you don't have time to make it from scratch then don't worry! I have recently seen "travel packs" of small pitas and hummus in the cooler section of my grocery store.. I can't recall the brand name though.<br><br>
Crackers and peanut butter are things that are easily kept in a desk drawer also.. and are my favorite! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:">

I'm thinking:<br><br><br><br>
Beans and rice. You could do lots of combinations and it would be fine at room temperature.<br><br><br><br>
Pasta salad. Add lots of chopped raw veggies, a dressing you like and some chick peas, kidney, or black beans.<br><br><br><br>
Sandwiches.<br><br><br><br>
Can you take a little cooler or a lunch bag with an ice pack? That would increase your options greatly.

I think leftover brown basmati rice and green lentils mixed together with a side of fruit and veggies makes a great lunch. Also, Luna Bars make a great snack.

Falafel in a pita is easy. You can make a big batch before hand or use the storebought mix if you want. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

You can buy a container of store-bought hommus almost anywhere, I think. Just look in the grocery store's dairy case (where they keep sour cream and chip dip and stuff) or the ethnic refrigerated section (With the sushi and stuff). Then put some of the hommus in a tortilla or pita, add some salsa, rice, veggies, lettuce, etc. and you'll be good to go!

First of all, I send my deepest sympathies that you have to work in a shopping mall...<br><br><br><br>
-Make falafel the night before, and take it with cucumbers and tomatoes. It's great at room temp.<br><br>
-Hummous is a great idea. Pears and apples cut up go great with hummous, if<br><br>
you wanna try something different.<br><br>
-Beans and rice.<br><br>
-Fruit<br><br>
-Make a batch of pesto and make a veggie wrap sandwich<br><br>
-Sundried tomatoes and sprouts and cucmbers and hummous on a sandwich.

i feel for you, i work in a mall with not much veggie choices. the foodcourt has one place i can buy from and all i can buy from them is lettuce and tomato sandwiches or peanut butter and jam sandwiches. so i bring my own sandwiches instead and eat my lunch in the stockroom.<br><br>
one day i'd forgotten that i was working a long enough shift to get a lunch break and that sandwich place wasn't open for some reason. i ended up getting chips, licorice and chocolate from the drugstore and felt like garbage all night.<br><br><br><br>
but yeah sandwiches are easiest. you could even make subs, just bring the dressing in a seperate little container and put it on at lunch or it'll make everything soggy before you get to eat it.<br><br>
cold pasta salads work too. i make mine with whole wheat macaroni, as many veggies as i have in the house, and balsamic vinegrette for dressing, plus fresh ground pepper and some basil and oregano. sometimes i'll also add chunks of boiled potatoes. red ones with the skin on are great.<br><br>
then just get yourself a cheap little cooler lunch bag. i have one that i got on sale for like 3 bucks and it's perfect. there's a little elastic thing in one end that holds a can of pop or bottle of juice so it doesn't roll over your sandwich and mush it. it fits exactly: a drink, a sandwich, a little fruit cup and spoon, a baggie of raw carrots, and a baggie of cookies or chips.<br><br>
or it also fits one of the medium sized ziplock/glad containers which holds quite a lot of pasta.
