    Default bringing food to work

    I work downtown and so far it's been easiest to just go a few feet to the nearest eatery and pay out the ass for something that tastes like smoker sputum and/or has several distinct hairs protruding from it, but that luxurious lifestyle is really starting to take its toll on my pocketbook.

    So does anyone have recipe ideas for lunches to bring to work? Preferably something more interesting and healthier than pb&j and chips 5 days a week. Also, I know how to use the internet so don't just copy/paste the first thing you find on google. Personal experience would be ideal.
    I don't wanna!

    Buy a bag of about 4 chicken quarters/legs Take the skin and obvious fat off and bake them with a little spices.. a sprinkle of something mexican works well. Take them in with a salad, or some decent crusty bread. If your work has a microwave, makes it hot chicken.

    Rice-based things. Jambalaya and stuff.

    I usually take onigiri (rice balls) Quick to make and quick to eat. Convenient.
    Tuna mayo is my favourite.

    I make onigiri a lot and eat it on the go It's really easy, takes almost no money, and it's transportable rice.

    I was so hyped to suggest this until I read your post

    Honestly I make PB+J [crunchy or gtfo] and sunchips/celery/carrots like every day. Love it.

    Everything's funner if you put it in a bento box. At least if you're an NF. I don't know if this rule applies to NTs.

    Chicken salad with celery, grapes, apples, and Triscuits.

    P.S. Instead of mayonnaise, use fat-free Greek yogurt, juice of a lemon, some brown sugar, salt, pepper, and a spoon of Dijon mustard.

    If you cook up several chicken breasts for chicken salad, you can use the broth for soup -- chop up one of the chicken breasts, add diced carrots, celery, leeks, a little tarragon, a splash of white wine if you have it, some leftover rice, or what have you.
