Looking for lunch ideas to pack and take with me, when I go to college starting in January.
So, in January, I'll be starting full time school again. Yay. However, this particular Community College has a dearth of lunch options - just a sad cafeteria, and nothing within easy walking distance that I know of. Boo. (North Seattle Community College, if familiar). And I need ideas.
I won't have access to a refrigerator. I will have, in theory, access to a microwave - but it may break, and/or be in constant use by other students. So I'd probably need dishes that can be eaten safely at room temperature that are filling and tasty. I can cook, and am adventurous, so I'm willing to try lots of different things.

My food restrictions: I absolutely cannot have, due to allergies: strawberries, peanuts, walnuts, Kim chee, and items with sulfites in them (wine, some lemon juice, dried fruit, balsamic vinegar, etc.) all cause asthma.
Food dislikes: cheese (but I can try to get over it and eat string cheese or Babybel or something; anything stronger tastes like Hell exploded in my mouth). Olives and the like. Other dairy, with the great exception of yogurt. Nearly any kind of seafood. Red meat (though I can have it once in a while). Really spicy foods.
Food loves: salads! Kale! Other veggies, and fruits. Hummus/baba ghannouj. Chicken, turkey, tofu. I really also love soups and stews with rice or quinoa, but it might be dicey if I can't warm them up.
Aside from these things, I'm not on any special diet. So, hit me up with ideas! Thank you!
