    Just wondering what people take to work for their lunches?

    I've grown completely bored of sandwiches, started taking rice/pasta salads but now I'm bored of that too... so I'm looking for some ideas.

    These threads come up fairly regularly.

    I buy a baguette for £2.50 1 or 2 days of the week, the rest of the time I have left overs from the night before.

    I have a variety on a theme every day.

    Chilli Cous Cous/Rice/Pasta as a base.
    Salad (Lettuces, Rocket, Tomatoes, Peppers, Radishes, Cucumber)
    Tuna/Smoked Mackerel/Salmon
    Boiled Egg.

    Yoghurt, and lots of fruit throughout the day.

    £100 on lunch per month is a bit to much for me to spend personally.

    That said, sounds great!

    I usually bring in a crappy sandwich or some microwave rubbish...

    isn't lunch for wimps?

    I like pitta bread and a variety of dips / salsa or go out and buy something cooked. Got a little stall nearby where he cooks a rib eye steak (medium rare) infront of you and puts it in ciabatta roll for £4.50. That's about my favourite at the moment.

    I make my own Ham + Cheese sandwich on brown seeded batch bread in the morning.

    I also take:

    Sausage Roll

    I also used to have a chocolate bar and a can of fizzy drink but in an effort to be healthier I've cut them out and have them maybe once a week if that as a treat.
