Re: O/T When you're home, what do you have for lunch?

I never eat breakfast so I have a protein shake for lunch.

Leftovers. Actually ""planned overs"".

Re: O/T When you're home, what do you have for lunch?

I used to have a turkey and swiss sandwich most days (or any kind of sandwich - I'm a bread lover) but since I have a slice of toast for breakfast, I felt I was eating too much bread and my weight had also been creeping up, so I decided to try low-carb options for lunch. Now I'll have any combination of hardboiled eggs, cheese string wrapped in turkey breast, cottage cheese with blueberries and/or a salad made with baby spinach or kale, a dollop of cottage cheese, whatever berries I have on hand and a sprinkling of sunflower seeds, drizzled with Greek dressing. Then I'll have a sugar-free tapioca pudding for dessert!

Oh and I drink water with that but if I'm home, I'll drink skim milk!

I usually take a sandwich and some type of fruit for lunch when I'm working. If I'm home I eat a larger breakfast later in the morning, around 10 or 11, and I skip lunch.

Usually a turkey wrap on a soft multi-grain wrap. Various mustard flavor(s) depending my mood, cheese, spinach, sometimes other/more veggies on it. Usually carrots and dip on the side.

Yes, let's meet for lunch, but we will have to eat in my car. HA!!! That's another thing that is soooooo crazy about my deal. I eat in my stupid car! I know most of you must think I'm nuts....well, I might agree with you. But something about eating lunch at home depresses me a little. And usually whatever I eat at home doesn't satisfy me. Another part of this is that my husband does not eat lunch. He eats breakfast and supper. I don't like breakfast and have to have my lunch...OUT and ABOUT. LOL!

Re: O/T When you're home, what do you have for lunch?

Depends on how much time I have and what's in the fridge. I like cottage cheese with halved grape tomatoes and a slice of whole wheat toast. Maybe a sandwich (1 slice of bread like Arnold or Pepperidge Farms) if there is sliced turkey or ham on hand. Peanut butter is an option, also a fried egg and a small slice of cheese on 1 slice of toast. Soup is good when it's very cold outside. I like Trader Joe's tomato and red pepper soup in the paper carton. Tuna fish is good once in a while. I can always rustle up something to eat.
