Just wondering if there were any suggestions on some variety for packing lunch from home.

Getting tired of the usual deli meat sandwiches/yogurt/banana combo I pack. I have a fridge at work, so perishible items aren't a concern.

I like marinated mozzarella (for lack of a more accurate term) on flatbread. I use mozzarella, feta, basil, onions, tomato and EV olive oil. I usually add some salt and pepper. Just mix and then let it refrigerate. I eat it on a flatbread with fresh spinach.

Then there is always sushi and the like. In Japan, lunches are an art form, maybe someone else who knows more can help with that.

For convenience, I like making one pot meals. Chili, beef stew over brown rice, stuff like that and eating them throughout the week.

Also, sometimes it's easier to cook a dinner for two rather than one, so I just throw half of my dinner into a pyrex and eat the same meal for lunch the next day.

Your marinated mozzerella really sounds interesting - how do you mix the mozzerella, isn't it all "clumpy"? How much EV Olive Oil do you use? - I always end up putting in too much. thx.

A curry can be a nice change from sandwiches. If you lack the time and/or culinary skill, some of the prepared stuff can be decent. The pastes--to which you add onions, tomatoes, and meat--can turn out very nicely. I've had particularly good results with the Pataks brand vindaloo.

One can makes enough curry to last four or five lunches, served with rice.

I don't use fresh mozzarella (although that shouldn't be a problem anyway). I just cube it. For the feta I use pre-crumbled stuff (feta can be omitted though).

I just pour the EV olive oil in, it doesn't cover more than half the ingredients usually, and just mix or shake it a few times while I am letting it marinate. It will drip off of the flat bread at least a little while eating.

One of my favorite things that I do:
Cut some strips of chicken out of a chicken breast. Dip in egg and coat with bread crumbs and coconut shavings. Bake for 15 minutes.

Healthy chicken tenders. Its very good either hot or cold.
