For those who bag lunch
What do you bring for lunch?
Apples, grapes, avocadoes, pears, etc. No worries. :)
-David Z. Mason
Lettuce, baby spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, avocados, green beans, peppers, sunflower seeds.
(Not all in one day)
Apples & bananas for snacks.
In my bag today: oranges, apples and almonds. That's for the whole day at work. I eat what I want when I want, no specified lunch time for me.
A banana or an apple usually for school.

Usually a pumpkin seed bar from Go Raw. If I don't have that, then a handful of whatever nuts I have in the house. Usually just that. If I think I'll be very hungry or it will be a long time till dinner, then I'll pack some raw veggies. Then again, I don't always eat lunch. Generally I only eat it if it will be a long time between breakfast and dinner or if I'm eating with my daughter.
Usually a big mixed salad. Sometimes a nice raw soup served chilled. Occasionally an entree from Alissa's book like one of my favorites--butternut squash noodles with curry sauce or stuffed collard leaves with a pate and lots of great veggies. Always leave a bag of fruit in the fridge to have for breaks/snacks during the week. Apples are top on my list right now although I go through stages and do banana, grape, or oranges depending on the mood. Also keep a small bag of almonds and another of raisins in my desk drawer as emergency "don't go for the candy bar" snacks.

Fruit and lots of it!
Today at the office I ate the following: 1 bag red seedless grapes for breakfast. 3 persimmons, 6 medjool dates for lunch. 6 small bananas and 8 stalks of celery midafternoon.

What's on the menu?
It varies depending on how lazy I feel and how late I'm running in the morning. I try and prepare the night before, but don't always get to it. I often bring a big salad with all sorts of stuff in it, including nuts and maybe dried cranberries or raisins. I make either "Alissa's Favorite Dressing" or a ranch style dressing. I'll pack fruit and nuts to eat at my desk while working and sometimes RP's brownies or a good apple crisp to eat before the commute home. Sometimes I get fancy - like today I took all the fixin's to work and made lettuce wraps with marinated portabella mushroom slices and veggies and some nut cheese. I love, love. love to eat!!

bananas and almond butter
lettuce or collard wrap (dice mushroom with favorite veggies, a dash of nama shoya mixed in a bowl. At lunch fill lettuce with mushroom mixture, wrap and enjoy!

My job requires a lot of energy so I have to eat something filling or I will be starving at 2 in the morning when I get home. I have an insulated lunch bag and ice packs to keep things cool.

My husband makes me a big batch of gazpacho soup every week and I'll usually eat that several days in a row. I like to eat fat in the middle of the day so I usually chop up 1/2 an avocado and throw that in the tupperware too.
If not that, then I eat fruit, and a handful of nuts.
