What's good at Subway?

A Subway franchise has opened right across the hall from my office. I haven't been to a Subway in years, and am not a huge fan, but the convenience and cost angles are compelling. So what do I get? [more inside]

Cross-cultural meal times & frequency

How standard is the 3-meals-a-day eating behaviour? What about times of day for eating, x-culturally? It would be interesting to hear any insights from folks outside of North America. Thank you!

He hates lunch.

My fiance hates lunch, and every day it is a "thing" for him to try to decide what to have for lunch. He doesn't want to have to bother with it any more. He said "I wish there was just some magic pill I could take that would keep me full and be healthy and make me not have to deal with lunch any more". So now we're thinking meal replacement bars so that he doesn't have to think about it any more. Suggestions? [more inside]

Nice country pub lunch on the A34 between Oxford and Winchester (UK)?

I'm off on a longish drive down to the Dorset coast a week tomorrow. Would like to stop off for a spot of lunch, and I'm thinking at some point on the A34 between Oxford and Winchester. Does anyone know of a nice gastropub type establishment close by? Say, within a 10 - 15 minute drive of the main road? Would much prefer a rural setting than going into Oxford as well. [more inside]

What do you bring to work for lunch?

I usually eat lunch at the cafeteria at work. While the meals are tasty and cheap ($6-$8), I'm beginning to notice that an alarming proportion of my monthly budget is being spent on lunch. My schedule is often busy and unpredictable, which makes it difficult to motivate myself to prepare meals at home before/after work. What are some cheap, no-fuss, and delicious meals that I can bring to work? [more inside]

It's the kitchen sink - in my salad bowl.

"Is This Healthy?" question #85,847,389. In an effort to start eating better, I've started to make my lunch salads for the week on Sunday nights. To stave off boredom from eating the same boring salad every day, day after day, week after week, I've collected a number of ingredients that keep my salads from making me shriek with horror.

Quick business lunch near Orlando's Orange County Convention Center?

I need to do a business lunch with two or three people in Orlando near the convention center on a weekday. Previous posts suggest that the International Drive area will be a crowded mess. Any suggestions for a business-appropriate lunch spot that is close to the convention center (walkable or very, very short cab ride) and that is not likely to keep us waiting?
