What do you have for lunch at work/school?

Was talking to a mate today about how much money we waste buying food at work. After talking for a bit I decided that I'd buy myself a little sandwich toaster and/or maybe a little rice cooker to bring to/leave at work so I could have cheap-ish hot food without having to fight for any of the building's shabby microwaves =)

But I'm curious, to what lengths will you guys go for lunch on a typical day? I'm especially curious about people who take a lot of pride in packing themselves a great lunch, and also people who eat out for lunch regularly. Do you guys go to the same tried and true places or do you like to explore?

I usually have pasta or subway, which is about $7.

Then I might get a small chips if I'm still hungry, or a drink.

That's about it, though some days I'm so preoccupied that I don't remember to eat >.<

Depends on whats in the fridge, if im with a certain person I'll usually buy bakery food, if I'm eating from home it will either be several sandwiches or some leftovers.

Today for example I had 2 salami and cheese sangas, 6 mini chicken wings and a piece of kfc hot and spicy fillet.

3 Schooners usually.
Then maybe a pack of chips on my way back to class if I'm feeling a bit pissed.

I budget 10 bucks a day for lunch at tafe. We generally go into town to Buck's Diner and get one of their bitchin burger meals. Damn good food for about the same price as HJs and Maccas and crap.

This week I am having Chicken Chow-mein for lunch.

Prepared it myself last night, the rice I cooked this morning. I actively prepare my lunch, even if its just leftovers or sandwiches, it works out much cheaper than buying my lunch everyday.

Will usually have some fruit oranges, apples or bananas, I may also include some nuts with my lunch.

Over summer I make a quick salad to take everyday.

Yeah man $3 schooners for students at Bar Broadway.
One of my teachers is usually on something during class too, so it makes everything more amusing and better.
Except my handwriting turns to shit :P

Liquid Lunches FTW.

i work at the top of collins street, so everything around here costs $$$!!!

i get in my moods sometimes. i'll say f*** it, why not enjoy myself. then spend about $15 a day on coffee/lunch. then, after a while, i'll feel guilty about wasting money and start packing my own lunch.

at the moment, im saving money. i figured, if i dont spend a cent each week i'll save $75. thats about $300 extra p/month in my pocket i could be using on uber gear for my machine. gg

Used to frequently have either Subway ($4 worth of 6-inch vege, $5 worth of 6 inch ham&turkey if I was feeling ritzy) or Han's (your standard mix of various asian dishes, usually got something like "Stir fried noodles" or "Fried Kway Teow) for $7-8.

At the moment?

Taste pretty good for $3.50 a pop. Easy to carry around. Try and get some salad/veges in with it too if it's practical, but it isn't always at lunch time.

Almost always eat out. May it be a pub lunch, or something from subway, takeaway from indian/thai/chinese. Lots to choose from around here, but yes, it can get pricey.

At the moment I don't eat at school, apart from an apple or two - just a substantial breakfast and a fairly large early dinner. But on mornings when I hit the gym (monday, wednesday, friday)I have an up and go or something light for breakfast and then grab something from home if there are leftovers (cold meat sandwiches just dont do it for me) for lunch, or hit up subway/red rooster/kebab shop at lunchtime if I don't have time/can't find any suitable food at home in the morning.

I ticked "Big pre-prepped" option. It's *technically* leftovers. But it is a case of "Prepare 3 meals for 2 people". 1 meal is lunch the next day. Problem solved.

Butter chicken for lunch tomorrow.

As I start work a bit after midday I have early lunch at home, and as I am usually poor it's nearly always tinned soup with toast and a piece of fruit.
