Our Benevolent Employer has recently ended the company canteen service, and everyone now brings in their own lunches. My team would like to share ideas for lunch recipes - both things found online and our own - as a small, private group. Can you suggest any services or strategies to do this? [more inside]

I've recently cut wheat and dairy products out of my diet, and need some creative ideas/recipes for both breakfast and lunch. Vegetarian and meat/fish-containing suggestions are equally welcome. The higher-protein, the better. Easy recipes please since my cooking-fu is minimal. Since I eat lunch at work a couple of days a week, I want something easily portable (by bike) and ideally not requiring reheating (there's a microwave at work, but it's a bit inconvenient for me to use). Breakfast has no such constraints since I eat it at home (I usually eat scrambled eggs for breakfast, but this is getting old). Bonus points for recipes containing tahini, since I was recently given some excellent organic tahini but the usual method of using it as a dip with bread is obviously out.

Feeling disenchanted with tuna salad, but want to keep eating fish for lunch every day. What are you best suggestions for easy, portable lunches that feature fish as a prominent ingredient? These need to be fully assembled before work and need to either taste good cold (ideal) or reheat in a microwave really well.

I want to start batch cooking my lunches for the month. I want to create delicious, HEALTHY individually-portioned frozen meals that I can pop in the microwave. Other catch: they have to be relatively cheap to make. Suggestions for recipes that fit the bill?

What are your favorite freezer-friendly recipes? Caveat: I'm diabetic and don't eat grains or legumes. However, things meant to be served over grains, legumes, or starchy vegetables are fine (I'm not always the only one eating at my table). Super bonus points for being able to freeze in portions.

I am cutting down on pork, carbs and red meat. I would like my new diet to lean towards vegetarian meals.
I can't handle spicy food and it seems like most of the recipes I keep finding are spicy and/or have curry. I also do not eat fish/seafood. [more inside]

I want to make some sandwich meats starting with roast beef and ending wherever my imagination takes me. I have a friend with a meat slicer, an oven, and an equal desire for cheap, awesome lunch sandwiches. Can you help us? [more inside]

PackMyLunchFilter! I have spent years trying to find healthy, quick and inexpensive brown-bag lunch items (I can cook and I'm willing to try anything) that I can rotate at school and work. What are your favourites? Bonus points for those who do it on a university-student budget; I'm above Kraft Dinner, but certainly not able to pack smoked salmon every day.
