    scrambled egg sounds lovely.

    I took leftover stir fry yesterday and eat it cold which was really yummy (but you could heat it in a microwave!)

    You can also do the savoury rices in a microwave - then I just stir in chopped spring onion, pineapple and anything else I fancy to get my 1/3

    Make more of your evening meals then just recylce them for lunch! much more interesting than a salad!

    You are so lucky! We have no fridge, toaster, microwave, kettle or anything to try and make us use their restaurant! Even a hot water for a mugshot costs me 40p!
    All I can have is warm soggy salad!!

    If I had a microwave I would def take in leftover dinner - yum!

    I was going to suggest that if you cook for the family, that you just make sure you do yourself a proper portion and take it to work with you and heat in the microwave. So your eating normal meals, just at work.

    Yes definitely do the leftover thing if you can, nothing worse than being hungry at work! I usually have leftovers or pasta n sauce / savoury rice / jacket and tuna/beans/Laughing Cow or I make up a big batch of pasta salad with peppers / onions / mushrooms / any other veg and tuna and sweetcorn and take that cold a few times a week.

    Good luck and well done so far xxxxx

    I would do a search using the phrases "lunch box" and "packed lunch" and you will find loads of threads on this subject. There are two identical posts in the recipe sub forum at the moment. Perhaps we should have a sticky on the subject as I'm starting to sound a bit like Victor Meldrew here :D

    Couscous is good for a green day, soaked in stock, a bit of paprika stirred in and some chickpeas and veg.

    I read a post before about using rice pouches with leftovers and it sounded great. Will be having leftover roasted veg from tonights dinner with Tandoori rice tomorrow for lunch.

    Having a microwave at work is a lifesaver!

    I also made the Minestrone Soup from the 7 day book and brought that in warm, it lasted really well and was delish :)

    I've got this great food container that you put in the freezer. The sides and lid are filled with this gell. It keeps salads etc lovely and cold/crispy and even has a section for dressing. I also found a great flask that keeps water hot for 24 hours and I've just got this awsome food flask for 1 from morrisons for £4. I wouldn't use your work restaurant on principle!

    I made the cheese and potato comfort pie (but put lots of extra veg in that was left over from Sunday roast) this week and cut that up and took it to work on Tue & Wed. Bloomin' lovely.

    Today I had left overs from last nights dinner. Lovely as well.

    Tomorrow I'm just taking in a Mug Shot and lots of fruit so it'll be a bit of a dissapointment after the rest of the week.
