    I typically take two cans of tuna in a tupperware container with some buffalo sauce and usually take some pasta with some italian dressing for a carb, then some sunflower seeds for a fat. What would be a good, doesn't need to be heated up, cheap, carb to take out to work? I don't have any access to a microwave or else it'd be some oats. Pasta is getting old as shit. I like to keep it somewhat clean, so pop tarts are out of the question. Any recommendations?

    I'm sick of rice, can't make it right. it's either too soggy or too hard, this is using a rice cooker

    I always precook a chicken breast, a cup of brown rice, and one of those steamfresh frozen veggie packages (carrots/broc/cauliflower), put it in a tupperware, and toss it in the microwave for a few mins on my lunch break...

    because protein and fats are pretty easy to come by (canned chicken, tuna, turkey, ham, etc) while most carbs that I can think of need to either be heated up or too processed. I'm not trying to avoid bread, just trying to cut back a little bit. I feel that 12 slices a day might be overdoing it a little bit, so I'd like to mix in something more. Not a big fan of cold rice, too sticky and kinda time consuming to eat

    There are some pretty tasty protein bars out there, METrx in particular, some of them have up to 50g carbs
