For lunch I put a whole tomato, chopped into bite-sized pieces, in the bottom of the container. On top of that, 1/2 cup of hummus. I fill the rest of the container with salad greens (1-2 cups). The hummus and tomato melt together and taste like a dressed salad, and the lettuce stays crisp because it's on top.

Separately I pack a sliced orange or a whole apple. I also make an espresso, which I put into a mug with almond milk. It tastes good heated or cold, if you want coffee.

For a morning snack I bring a banana and some nuts.

With this, I'm fine until dinner time.

Food to take with me:
I almost always carry an apple and some nuts in my handbag for 'emergencies' - when I get hungry and can't get any 'decent' food to eat.

For lunch / meal on the go I DO pack a plastic container with salad, and take a plastic spoon with me. I'll try to have less greens and more 'solid' foods like cucumber, beans, celery, bell peppers and apple (with spices) in the salad. Greens aren't so handy to eat out in public!

Then at times I will also put some oats with soy, almond or rice milk and frozen fruit, cinnamon and nuts in a plastic container. Don't forget to pack a spoon! The frozen fruit will slowly defrost and keep your meal cold in the meantime.

Mason Jar Chickpea, Farro and Greens Salad (& lunch packing tips!) ...I've seen several of these mason jar recipe (may have post more too)...but this is a great idea and if you don't have a mason jar then you could use something else.

I agree with Ever-Hopeful. With this "Thermo"container idea there is no limitations for your lunch ideas. You can have hot soups or cold salad if you want to. Here is some ideas of product I use. You can find similar thermo container or iced lunch box online.

if you get a wide necked thermos flask you can do hot and cold things in them from potoesalads,rice salads,noodle salad,cous cous and bulgar salads,various soups,etc,etc.
boiled eggs,cooked chicken,chopped up pieces of vegtable and fruits with dips.crackers ,tinned tuna ,sweet corn or beans are always handy as reserve.sandwhiches in various forms,wraps,tortilla etc.yougurt,cheeses etc if not vegan.the options are endless.smoothies and potien shakes.if you need any more ideas let us know.my son because of his allerghies can´t eat school dinners and there are some really good thermos tellers and bowls that keep food warm for several hours.i tend to give him what is left from the night before dinner(make extra for this reason)for him to take to school next day.it is worth paying a little extra for a good thermos as over the time it will pay for itself.

Hi all,
A question... if you have to have lunch on the go, what do you make.
i.e. a sallad is not a good option to bring and it's not possible to heat food.
For example, going on an outing with the kids to a museeum or ice skating or something...
Any ideas?
