Well, I pretty much take my lunch with me to the office every day, but I don't use a lunchbox.  That's because I drink 3 raw egg yolks and then 3 teaspoons of coconut oil that I've mixed with baking cocoa and Splenda.  A dozen eggs covers me for 4 lunches!  lol.  And the coconut oil is in a jar that I keep in the cupboard in the kitchen at work.  I don't drink the eggs because I like the taste, though!  I try to swallow those yolks intact.  Ick on raw egg yolk!  lol.  And I nibble on raw or lightly roasted almonds throughout the day for snack.

At the office, we get 30 minutes for lunch.  I'm a smoker and so by drinking the egg yolks and eating the coconut oil, I can get my lunch done in less than 5 minutes and then go out for a quick smoke break.  And that gives me 4 or 5 more little 5-minute smoke or should I call them "sanity"  breaks.  I only smoke about 1/3 of a cigarette per break.  lol.  Plus I have ample protein and calories at lunch, but ZERO carbs so I don't get the afternoon drowsies. I drink plenty of fluid, too, so my smoke breaks are really determined by my bladder.  When I have to go to the bathroom, I'll go outside for a quick break - and because I have to pee, I don't linger outside too long.  lol.  It works for me.

Not really packing lunch today but plan on eating the yogurt and fruit I have here so I don't have to pack it up and take it home today.  It's one less thing to pack up!  lol

I'm with you....EWWW  on the raw eggs.  That would make me get sick. lol

I separate the eggs and just gulp down the egg yolk - I hate when the yolk breaks and I taste it!  So I try to gulp it down like swallowing a pill - and that way I don't taste it!  And the coconut oil with the cocoa is like eating chocolate, so that's my "reward" for gulping down the yolks.

I usually bring my lunch when there is nothing I want to eat in the cafeteria.  Today I have a pastrami on rye sandwich, Campbells Chicken and Stars soup on the go and a banana.  I have cucumber slices with radishes and blueberries to snack on.

I usually pack a lunch but ran out of lunchmeat. So today I have Peanut Butter&Honey crackers, some petite dill pickles, a string cheese, 2 oranges (which I probably won't eat) and a banana.

Don't pack a lunch anymore.  Lunch around here is usually whatever is left over from dinner the night before and if there are no leftovers, then I usually make a salad of some sort.
