I take 2 tuna sandwiches and a bag of honey roasted peanuts of almonds (0.89 cents at the local store) to work with me everyday. We order lunch from the same place everyday, otherwise I'd bring 3 sandwiches with me a day.

9:30 am - tuna sandwich and 1/2 bag of peanuts
12:00 pm - grilled chicken sandwich
3:00 pm - tuna sandwich and 1/2 bag of peanuts

That's enough to get me through my 9 - 5 desk job.

you use wheat bread? or white?

Normally nothing besides some low/no cal drinks. Crystal light or diet soda.

Recently I bring 1/2 cup dry oats witha scope of nitrean to eat before going home as a preworkout meal. That way it has a solid 1-1.5 hours before I hit the weights where if I eat when I get home it is only about 30-40 minutes. Seems to help with energy at the gym.

I go home for lunch and eat whatever I cook. Yesterday was salmon and green beans. Today was chicken and brocolli.

Wheat bread for the tuna, rye for the chicken.

Food slows me down.

I just have some coffee with splenda or a bit of diet soda whenever I feel hungry. Id rather save cals for later after working out when Im hungrier.

Whey in milk then I drop about a 1/2 cup of oats in a bowl. Incredibly tasting, nurtitious, filling AND low cal.

I leave the bag of oats and a measuring scoop in the cupboards and just bring in a nalgene with the whey.

Depends. When I'm working outside all day it's hard to warm up my food. When I'm in the office I bring anything I would eat at home, and warm it up. For snacks, I've put yogurt in a cup with trail mix. mmmm
