Thank you all  for all of the suggestions! I have been just throwing some sandwiches in a bag or my jacket pocket as I'm leaving the house. lol. I like the granola bar idea and picked up a few things today. and when i can afford it I'll pick up one of those thermal bags or a nice cooler. also that website with the meatless meals is amazing, I actually saved all these links. I'm so glad I found this and asked! Thanks!

@ Penny V.: these recipes look great and yummy!!!

I would probably consider packing a lunch with an ice pack into a thermal baggie, and saving the PBJ for backup. I like cooking Japanese style Bento lunches to go, if I have a long day, and often, they're meant for eating at room temperature. Even if you're not into making "Japanese" food, you might catch some ideas on how to plan easy portable meals.

How about some homemade granola to munch on or add to your yogurt?

Comment by Shellie A. Gades on April 6, 2013 at 2:14pm

im gone 12 hours a day but thankfully have access to refrigeration and microwave if needed. i like to pack popcorn and cut up carrots and celery (or other veggies if i have them). you could also free some individual cups of yogurt and keep them in a cooler (if that's an option). how about raisins and almonds.  hard-boiled eggs. I sure hope you are able to have a cooler of some sort with you during your long day.

Ron, you can make your own granola bars or "energy balls" to snack on thru the day.  Almonds are a very  healthy snack.

Hello, I'm new to this and am still just learning how it all works. I have a question regarding food to take with me when I leave the house. Most days during the week I leave at 6-6:30 in the morning and don't get home till maybe 9-10:00 at night. I've been looking up healthy food ideas that I can take with me but so far have been just taking a loaf of whole wheat bread and a jar of peanut butter and a gallon jug of water.. It's kinda getting old. I have made some nice healthy meals but with the type of work I do I need something I can just throw in a pack quick, easy and not have to heat. Plus if I don't eat right, like consuming lots of sugary foods/drinks, I get extremely shaky, weak and fatigued.  I seem to perform the best with natural healthy carbs and protein like with the pb & bread. Anyways I've been educating  myself on food but wanted to see if anyone had any suggestions. I can't eat fast food or drink soda anymore because it just tires me out and makes me sick.  thank You!

4-5 Granny Smith Apples

2 c. Water

2 tbsp. Lemon Juice

1/3 c. Brown Sugar

1 tbsp. Cinnamon

Combine water, lemon, sugar and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl. Core and slice apples about 1/16" thick, leaving skins on. Place sliced apples in sugar water mixture and soak 8-12 hours in fridge. Place apples in dehydrator for 12-14 hours, til crisp. Makes about 4 trays.
