Hello, as a ‘sequel’ to my thread asking for filling, tasty and healthy breakfast ideas I am interested in your opinions/meal ideas for school lunches! I’m a 16 year old female and I’m looking for something that has a reasonable cost, is tasty and actually filling! Preferable something warm but if not that’s okay. In the past I have eaten: a tuna and sweetcorn sandwich with cucumber slices, bagels filled with cream cheese and salmon and sandwiches filled with either curry or noodles that my parents have made as a dinner meal because I was too lazy to make either of the previous two. The issue I have with these is that: they’re not as tasty or filling as I would like them to be, it takes a lot of effort to make these, the salmon and canned tuna can be too salty. I want to avoid processed food. Thanks

Also I need something that doesn’t need to be in the fridge all the time but still be okay to eat as I won’t be eating my lunch for 3-4 hours after I have left the house. Also, does anyone have any tips for adding things like tomatoes without the bread going soggy?

pasta – add whatever sauce and any other bits like veggies and protein, and then either eat it cold or heat it up in the microwave

maybe if you put some lettuce or something between the tomatoes that might help?

I normally eat spicy chicken wrap or ham salad wraps for lunch with fruit. Sometimes I’ll have soup with crunchy bread (like tomato, chicken veg...). Or protein laden salads (just a green salad but topped with boiled eggs/tuna/chicken...)
If im working from home ill sometimes have scrambled eggs or beans on toast.

Thanks a lot for your suggestions!
Oh yeah I completely forgot about wraps, so I’ll think I’ll try them again. Oooh I’ve never had a protein laden salad so I might try that as long as the salad ingredients will keep. Your suggestions sound really nice

Removing the seeds from the tomatoes might help.

If you have access to a microwave or a very good flask that keeps heat, soups and stews can be really nice and filling.
