Looking for easy/cheap/healthy vegetarian lunches

Over the past year or so I've become increasingly turned off of eating meat and the industrial way animals are killed, so I've been transitioning more and more to a vegetarian diet. I do pretty well at breakfast and dinner when I'm home and have access to a refrigerator, stove, and so on, but my problem is at work where my basic lunch has been a simple turkey sandwich for years. Its relatively cheap. It's healthy. I can throw it together in a minute or two when I'm tired and rushed in the morning. And I don't have to think too much about it.
What vegetarian options fit the same mold? I want to stay full for the 6-7 hours between lunch and dinner, but everything I've tried leaves me hungry and unsatisfied. Sandwiches without meat don't really fit my tastes. The salads I try leave me starving around 4 o'clock. I want something as easy and satisfying as I've been used to, but without the animal part. What have you found that works?
