I have a bad habit of buying lunch while at work. What can I make for lunch that will fulfill my super-strong cravings for huge burritos and greasy pizza?

I buy lunch at work more often that I should. When I'm starving, it's hard for me to avoid buying a massive burrito or huge plate of greasy stirfry. What can I say? I love salt and fat.
I want to look forward to lunch. I want to sit at my desk in the morning and daydream about my lunch waiting for me in the fridge. I want my homemade lunches to be drool-worthy and cause me to forget all about my desire to go out and waste money. For example, my homemade lunch today consists of two hardboiled eggs, a container of plain yogurt with walnuts and dried cranberries, and a bag of edamame. Healthy, uh-huh, but it won't fulfill that deep desire for a hearty meal.
I know there are plenty of lunch threads, but I haven't seen one that suits my particular need (please let me know if I'm wrong).
Any dazzling lunch recipes that will satisfy my stomach and wallet?
