I was wondering if anyone had any good lunch ideas they would like to share!
Even favourite meals!
I find cooking a very effective way to relax and I always get excited when I have good food to look forward to
Anyone else like me?
Some of my favourite work lunches is:

Me: Wakes up at a reasonable time.
Me: Showers. Does a little homework. Has some breakfast. Zones out.
Me: OH GOSH I HAVE TO LEAVE IN THIRTY SECONDS. I HAVE NO LUNCH? A BANANA WILL DO.
Maybe I should start making lunches in advance. Hmm. Is there anything that keeps well that's fairly easy to prepare?

@missep Awesome thread idea
@roseisnotaplant Hmm I usually cook meals in bulk, divide them up into little containers and then freeze them. In the cooler months it usually stays cold enough to last until lunchtime, but if it's warm I pack an ice block if there's no fridge available. Spaghetti bolognese and veggie casseroles are usually my easy go-tos - just chop up whatever veggies are in the fridge and stick em all in a pot
Ray, when you're on the Titanic, you load the lifeboats. You don't stop to yell at the iceberg.

Like @lokifish I find spaghetti bologannaise (how do you spell that??) an easy go-to lunch. Other ideas:
- Fried rice
- In general rice with side dishes (e.g. stir-fried string beans with mince pork, tomato egg, daal makhani etc.)
With all this rice on here I wonder if anyone can tell I'm Asian...

I think rice is a really good go-to lunch food @missep.
I usually take sandwiches, or toasted sandwiches if I'm at uni and can use the toaster. Or cuppa-Soups that you can make by adding some hot/boiling water to the sachets. Also two-minute noodles.
Or a salad, if I'm feeling like something a little more fresh.

I'm getting a lot of ideas now
I should probably start making healthier things like salads but I tend to gravitate towards my favourite chicken schnitzel sandwhich
It's a work in progress!

aaaaa im so bored of just sandwiches too and i wanna bring in lunches so i can be healthier and not spend money on fast food
I have leftover pasta today, and sometimes if we have extra sauce and pasta I'll make just tomato pasta which whatever else i can find. We grow herbs and vegetables so its easy ^^
My partners grandparents also once cooked us like 5 different kinds of soup and we froze them in containers and it was delicious - you can just microwave when you want ^^
I also like brown rice and those flavoured cans of tuna you can get, or cous cous and a bunch of herbs to make it interesting.
Or sometimes i just bring in like 5 muesli bars and hope i dont faint
Another thing you can try is something like soylent - its a powder designed to replace a meal with every nutrient you need. its not very interesting but its really good if you just wanna eat to sustain yourself.
