Just curious, Im cutting right now. And im finding it hard to pick out foods that i can take to work and microwave or just keep cold? anyone have Idea's? I've been eating Peanut butter and Jelly and a cup of yogurt.
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.
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.
orange, yogurt, bag of almonds/cashews and water. Coffee and a granola bar before workouts.
I always take a baggie to work with me in the morning with unsalted peanuts or walnuts, string cheese, a fruit leather of peice of fruit, and a cup of yogurt. Sometimes I'll bring along a pint of strawberry milk or 1 or 2% milk.

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.
Complication breeds desperation.
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
"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race." - John Calvin Coolidge
