Does anyone have any ideas for bag lunches that you do not have to keep chilled? Also any ideas for lunch that you can munch? At my job I eat when I can and cannot leave the pharmacy to eat. Thanks

Yes, - I've tried 2 combinations and am ready to order my 3rd box. They are kind of expensive but making your own bar is fun to try!

Very cool. I like that kind of experimenting. Thanks for the site. It is different from the other one I found. I will have to see what they both offer and give them a try. Amazing what you can find on the internet. LOL

My diatician said I could have lots of celery with peanut butter, that would work. I like peanuts and almonds to carry plus cliff protien bars and there is a place where you can design your own bars at, I have ordered my own recipes there and it's fun!

Wow, that is so cool! I don't eat the Cliff Bars, but I have a friend who does. He would love this option.

BUT, I went to that site, and it's all in Japaneese (or another character language) and it looks like travel. I couldn't find a way to make it English to tell for sure. Would you be so kind as to post the actual link you are talking about. I would really love to share it.
I did find one at Is that the same one?

I would also encourage you to invest a few bucks into a thermal insulated cooler and some freezer ice blocks and then you can pack salads, sandwiches, yogurt, and more just like you would put in a fridge. You are probably looking at 4-5 hours from the time you arrive until your lunch time so you don't really need constant refrigeration. Just make sure to freeze your ice block thingies at night and pack your lunches in the mornings. If you have a heavier breakfast you can aim for lighter lunches. Do you work alone? What do the others do???

My Hubby and I work a flea market on weekends now and packing a safe lunch can be tricky. I know we don't have a frige, but I just freeze a juice box and use it to keep my cooler, cool. I usually pack sandwich items, but don't put them together, but in little baggies. I love cucumber sandwiches and they are low carb if you have a good bread. I always pack a single serve yogurt for me and some sort of fresh fruit such as an apple or grapes for my hubby. (he's not diabetic) Like Nanaellen said, munchies like carrots, cauliflower and broccoli end up in my cooler too and we always take plenty of water to drink.

Most veggies will hold up for lunch like broccoli sweet peppers, cauliflower, baby carrots celery sticks with peanut butter, and a really good dip for them is 1/2 salsa and half lite sour cream mixed together. Even a grilled chicken sliced on top of a green salad just don't add the dressing until your ready to eat!! I'm sure I'll thnk of a dozen more as soon as I log off!!
