The hardest part for me is eating enough protien, working 9 - 10 hour days, it's hard to get even a 10 minute break form the office, meetings, clients etc, when I do it's usually to scoff down high carb/fat junk. I think this is really holding back my progress.
Is anyone else in this position?
What are some good tasting, portable, high protien, nutritious ideas I can carry to work in containers that need minimal preperation?
Tinned tuna is bland as.

There's lots of people out there that get up a 5 am cook and fill a cooler for the day and take it with them to work, school ect.

Time for the "what separetes us from them thread" and the "what a bodybuilder eats thread"

I've been packing a cooler for years. You get in the habit.

I've got a job now (for the last 6 months or so) where I'm out in the field at least 2 days a week - Customer Service Operations for foodservice, so when I *am* out, I'm either at a service provider, or in outlets (restaraunts, fast food, etc.) I'm always struggling with those days where I am on the road all day, but I still make intelligent choices when I eat in a restaraunt, and I generally have either a couple of servings of Nitrean or a sandwich or something in the car. Just have to carry some bottles of water for the protein.

You make due.

Natty pb on wheat bread, veggies, powders, and fruits can sit in a bag/backpack for days. If you have access to a fridge or mini-cooler pack lunchmeat, cocheese or leftovers.

A "ready to drink" protien supp.... if you have time to drink a soda, you have time to drink one of those. They range from 20-50 grams of protien, that would be the easiest solution.

I make a couple protein shakes and several PB sandwiches in the morning when I know I won't have time to take a lunch break.

I sometimes bring a shaker with 2/3 cup oatmeal, and protein powder. At meal time it's just a matter of adding fluid, I prefer milk, but water is fine too.

Sometimes I have just a bunch of hardboilded eggs.

Yep, that's what I do. I work on a help desk and I rarely have a lot of time to eat. I get them on the cheap too.
