I take several pieces of fruit, a pre-made GS and a dessert and a meal of some kind (big salad w/ avo & seeds, or raw soup, etc.)

I take fruit, the leftover smoothie from breakfast (there is always plenty...I haven't learned how to make enough for one meal), and whatever else I have been dehydrating. I tend to snack a lot while at work....

I usually take about 3-4 pieces of fruit and a salad for lunch-sometimes nuts and sometimes flaxseed crackers with gucamole or a pate. I make a green smoothie in the morning and drink it on the way to work.
You can take just about anything if you have a lunch bag and cold pak. I take all kinds of things to work. Cake, pie, pastas (just pack zucchini noodles seperate from sauce for water drainage), lettuce leaves and wrap fillings, onion bread with nut cheese and veggies, salads with veggies and avo, left over raw pizza, fruits, smoothies, pates and nori for rolls, just whatever I think I will want to eat for the day. Have fun!!

I make a big salad on the weekend and then take about 3 cups of it to work for lunch. I also pack about 4 pieces of fruit and some cut up celery on which I spread either a cheese spread or pate`. I also have a stash of raw bars at work, and if I'm having a really hungry day, I eat one of those. After I leave work, I eat and apple and sometimes a banana before I go swimming or biking.

Today I brought a peach and some raw seeds and a raw food bar

I brought a baggy of seeds and bunch of grapes to snack on with me when I was away. This thread is a good one for me since I'm starting new classes and will possibly be gone for at least several hours at a time with the campuses offering all of the fast foods in the food court at school which is going to be really hard to deal with. Food cravings and the smells of food coming from Pizza Hut, chinese places, and the other fast food on campus. :eek:

The ice pack (from what I've read) works better on top of the food - just an fyi.
What I take to work is:
I always have a stash of nuts, cacao nibs, sunflower seeds, goji berries, nori wraps (dehydrated).
Salad (same - take it in a "doggie" bag)
Water (like 1.5 liters)
Fruit - always have a fruit bowl going

THANK you for starting this thread! I never bring enough and always end up getting some crappy CLIF bars and crackers at the convenience store!

I got a bunch of canning jars at a thrift store and some new plastic screw on lids at the Bi-Mart (kind of a locally owned Kmart). I make my smoothies the night before - usually two kinds, green and fruit. Then I split it up into the jars and put lids on the ones I will take to work. I have a lunch bag deep enough so they stand up and use other food and cold packs so they don't move around. I also make a salad 2-3 a week and put it into little plastic tuperware type things. Other than that I just grab whatever and throw it in the bag to hold back the hunger. I might have seaweed pieces, pumpkin seeds, carrots, peaches, bananas, whatever I have plenty of. I'm trying to lose weight so I'm not at the point where I feel it's safe to keep stuff like Larabars around, even though I like them!

Fresh juice or Green Smoothie.
Avocado, onion and red pepper.
Slice the red pepper in half clean out the seeds and fill with avocado and sliced onions. Sprinkle some sea salt on top and attempt to eat without getting it all over my work area. Which is almost impossible but worth the try.
