Ideas needed for portable breakfasts & lunches.....

alot of us have the need to take lunches and breakfasts with us to work and while we're on the go...I know we do better at staying deliciously OP with this issue when we can plan ahead at this, especially in my case, so that I am not so vulnerable to the stuff that's always on the table in our staff lounge. I have some old favorites but would sure be grateful to get some new inspiration for yummy things to pack up for an on the go OP day. Thanks so much, maajida

Re: Ideas needed for portable breakfasts & lunches.....

I gave some suggestions in the daily thread. For breakfast there are some pretty good recipes for low point muffins on the WW message boards, hard boiled eggs, yogurt with frozen fruit is good. Put the fruit in frozen and by the time you get to work it will be thawed. For lunch some grain (quinoa, couscus, barley) mix with canned chicken or tuna or salmon. Add some chopped up raw veggies and salad dressing. I especially like the Bountiful dressings.


Re: Ideas needed for portable breakfasts & lunches.....

I am going to sound like a broken record, but for breakfast I love my waffles and PB2. You can toast the waffle and put the PB2 on it, wrap in foil or a napkin and eat in the car. :) You can do the same thing with an english muffin, slice of canadian bacon, and a scrambled egg beater. FF cheese is a nice touch too.

Hope that helps a bit!

Breakfast or snack: 1 Tbsp. peanut butter heated in the microwave for 20 to 25 seconds to soften and mix in Fiber One cereal. Very filling and good for those of us that love pb.
I eat frozen dinners almost every day at work and I add a cup of veggies to them and have a slice of Nature's Own double fiber bread. It makes it much more filling without adding any points.
I'm really, really getting tired of the frozen dinners so I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's ideas for lunch.
