Lunch Box ideas?

I've started my first ever job, and obviously the canteen is all crisps, chips, meat meals and fizzy pop. So does anyone have any lunch box ideas? I have some recipes (I'm fairly new to raw) but there mainly flashly. So has anyone got some simple easy meals and lunch box ideas for me?

I dont want to be tempted to fall off the wagon and eat crap. Thanks in advance, Mel x

    Here's something I flung together the other day. Get some soaked nuts, nice fresh greens, sprouts, seaweed and vegetables (not necessarily all that stuff), and maybe a few herbs or spices. Grind it all up really well in a food processor and then, while it's still running, pour in water a little bit at a time until it all goes doughy. Take out, roll into little wads, and if you want, dehydrate for a few hours. The taste is a bit hit and miss (work in progress!) but it does the job!

    Lol, love that gorilla sandwich! I can't wait to try that.

    Re: lunches, I make sure to always have raw crackers on hand. Then I bring half an avocado in a ziploc, a spoon, and some salt. I spread the avocado on crackers, add some sprouts (in a ziploc), and then I bring a bag of nuts, some fruit, and some veg for snacks.

    A perfect lunch! For me anyway. :)
