Portable food: travelling computer tech edition.
January 28, 2014 11:30 AM Subscribe
I'm a travelling computer tech for a school district in Cincinnati. Of the 12 schools in our district, I am a tech for 4 elementary schools. I work year-round and all seasons; and am on the move constantly. I have a flexible lunch schedule but I prefer to eat on the move because the district is 54 square miles and I cover a lot of ground on a daily basis. Currently I eat out just about every day because it's convenient and I need to get to my next building quickly (we're not timed but will be soon), but my husband and I are saving for a minivan so it's financial crunch time.

Here come the snowflakes:
- I'm 5 months pregnant, so lunchmeat is more or less out.
- I'd prefer room temp/cold simply for convenience and limited access to microwaves/refrigerators.
- I don't own a cooler; suggest a great one that can withstand drastic temperature shifts. Summer weather is the worst (no a/c in most of the buildings and if there is, it's turned off in the summer time).
- Anything that I can make big batches of that's good at room temp/cold.
I know I sound overworked here but help me out, MeFi!
