    Although i'm happy with the array of breakfast, snacks and main meals that i eat i'd like to move away from sandwiches to something different.

    Any lunch ideas bearing in mind that it has to go in a packed lunch for work.

    If you've got a microwave available: What about some pasta/spaghettis...? I found that if I made some for supper, with enough for the next day...
    If not, I know some people who would have like a pasta salad kind of thing, if you don't mind cold pasta... (I've heard couscous works well for these kind of salady things too)

    Cold chicken drumsticks/some kind of cold meat? Mini quiches/pastry things?

    I've been in this situation - there's only so many sandwich fillings you can tolerate. For me, sushi was a good choice - it comes bite sized, isn't messy to eat and usually has eating utensils in the pack. And before anyone thinks that's a far too expensive idea I get my sushi from Waitrose at the end of the day when it's been reduced in price to about £1.50 for a large pack (i.e. what you might pay for some very ordinary sandwiches) - I then have it the following day, one day out of date. I've never been ill from it.

    I prefer not to radiate my food. Needs to be something i can make in about ten minutes on a morning (though i suppose i could make it the day before).

    Could have chicken with pasta possibly.

    Love fish but needs to be something quick to make on a morning or the evening before.

    But you're not making it - you're buying it ready prepared, popping it in the fridge overnight and then taking it with you!

    Fair enough - my idea won't work for you then.
