    Say one was trying to lower his caloric intake, would tuna still be a good idea? :dunno:

    :werd: Take about 10 chicken breasts and 4 or 5 baked taters with you and you'll have a Ronnie-worthy meal.

    Don't forget the Masterpiece of course.

    6-8oz chicken breast. 1/2-1 cup of vegetables and 1/4 any kind of nuts. Brind 4 of those if you work 8 hours.

    Forget Masterpiece, Sweet Baby Ray's is the way to go. Also ideas: PBJ, chili, a protien shake, protien bar, tuna pouches, sandwhiches.

    if you can keep things in the fridge, i'd probably be eating a lot of salmon and zucchini. i think salmon is often better as cold left-overs. it can be had for cheap, and is of course quite healthy. damn, now I really want a left-over salmon filet.

    Every day for work I bring a combo of things, and eat a little every break. I get 5 breaks a day:

    2 light yogurts
    a bag of unsalted nuts (usally almonds, cashews, peanuts, or pistashios)
    Banana/pear/apple/grapes
    Instant weight control oatmeal
    baby carrots
    Protien bar or shake of some kind
    beef jerky
    baked chicken breast
    I dont bring all these every day exept 2 lite yogurts. I mix and match 4-6 items.

    Before work I load up on a double protein shake, a peice of fruit, and either oatmeal or a healthy cerial of some kind with my omega fat supplements and other daily supplements. When I get home, the wife usally has baked chicken and steamed green veggies cooked almost every day of the week. Since Ive been bulking, at night I might have another shake and a harty helping of peanut butter.

    hot sauce is your friend

    how was the chicken cooked? what about the broccoli?

    you could also try salad dressing

    try different seasonings on the chicken... and i hate boiled broccoli... steamed with pepper >>>> boiled

    but seriously... hot sauce, italian salad dressing/vinegrette (sp?), and barbecue sauce are your friends

    if you don't want to eat what you brought for lunch, there's a greater chance you'll stray from your diet often

    I wish I could make my chicken more moist. Foreman grill dries it out.

    I've been eating chicken breasts for the past week or so, about 2-3 times a day. Really gets old :wtc:

    2pts brown rice
    1part black beans (whole, not canned)
    1part red beans (same as above)
    1 can (8oz) of chicken breast
    grated cheese
    taco sauce.

    Sunday night, I make up a huge slew of this stuff, pack it in individual tupperware containers and then just grab two or three of them on my way out the door in the morning.

    Something about eating beans and rice together makes for more complete amino acids and nutrients. Or something. I'm sure a lot of people know what I'm talking about, even though I don't :o

    edit: I throw in a couple cloves of garlic, ground pepper, and Tony Cachere's when the beans and rice are cooking.
