I ate out most of last year.
Falafel sandwiches, a vegan Chinese place with almond fried vegan mock chicken, vegan bread bakery veggie focaccia and a few cookies and muffins, or a tempeh burger with yam fries and a slice of raw vegan teese cake where among my staples.
It cost way too much, though.

No, she leaves to sell herself to another employer. She's driven by the same hunger. Thus the worker's liberty is only a theoretical freedom, lacking any means of realization; an utter falsehood."

Soups, couscous and lentil salads :) it's functional, not inspiring!

This week I have cold sausage and sweetcorn pizza. Cold food is normally crap for lunch but cold pizza is awesome and has the bonus of blowing the minds of a few colleagues that vegan pizza exists.

Yum!

So turns out pasta salad after 4 days in the fridge starts to go a little funny. Last one had a distinctive pop when I opened it and flavours had began to mingle in a not so good way.
This week made couscous, olives, sun-dried tomatoes, hummus, chickpeas and falafel. Also had sausage sandwiches with brown sauce. Tried PB and jam sammies one day, but made me feel too much like I was back at school.

sounds like your fridge is not cold enough. Pasta salad should be able to keep fresh after four days if the temperature is low enough. It should be around +8°C in the fridge.

Lately I've been cooking up some Sanitarium casserole mince with taco seasoning and taking that, along with one of those microwaveable brown rice packs and some frozen veggies.

Oh my. You make my cake for lunch looks so unhealthy.

Must admit I am bit of a traditional type, always a Sandwich with endless fillings or all varieties and usually a couple bits of fruit and from time to time a Soya Yoghurt, thats about it really, I mix in a change from time to time but not really that often.

Usually soup and bread, or leftover ravioli or lasagna from the night before when I make them.
