I am currently stuck between leftovers and going out to eat at lunch (CBD).
Does anyone have suggestions for healthy lunches which are able to be transported by (and survive) paniers/backpack?

500-750ml takeaway container stuffed to the brim with salad, mostly leafy greens, some sprouts, capsicum, avocado, carrot, tomato etc. < 5ml or so of dressing (flax seed or EV olive oil with a bit of balsalmic). Leafy greens are actually quite good for filling up on IME.
Some protein. I'm vego, so some tofu, a hard boiled egg or two or sanitarum vego thing (do not need cooking), quorn (1 x classic burger, microwavable) or mixed beans etc. A lot easier for omnivores, I guess. Meat substitutes tend to be high sodium.
A couple of pieces of fruit or a few nuts/dried fruit for snacks.

I also have a floating stash of backup non/less-perishable stuff like tins of beans+tuna, a spud or two and occasionally those microwave rice packet thingers, along with some porridge sachets on days warranting Breakfast v2.0. Admittedly the backup lunch stash tends to get trumped by the Asian food nook that my office window overlooks.

Eat lunch early and also usually eat 4 peices of fruit for during the day. That said I am lucky like my Dad - eat almost anything and not put on weight.

I hate riding with a pack.
Usually I drive one day a week and cart work clothes and enough fruit, veg, lunches to last me the week. Every other day I'll try and get a couple of hours out riding on the way into work then just ride straight home after work.

Seriously, what's in the pantry or fridge? Am I hungry when I can get time off the panel? Dunno, whatever does or doesn't move me but there's often a banana at some time of the day.

I'm a creature of habit and also tend to take an apple, banana and muesli bar. I have some fruit/nut mix at work. I also make up a few days worth of a cold chia and oat porridge for breakfasts. I either eat that before I leave or on arrival.
Oh, and coffee. All the coffee!

I like to snack mid-morning and mid afternoon, so buy a week's worth of apples or bananas, and occasionally a bag of mixed nuts. I don't carry a thing on the bike - my wallet, phone and security pass go in my jersey pockets, as does the fortnightly batch of home roasted coffee beans.
