    This will involve too long a reply for most readers since I'm packing 24/7.

    A bag of kittens holding flowers- good for putting on mass when bulking.

    Gives major fire diarrhea after though.

    BTW, how come this PREZCOBIX advertisement for HIV meds that keeps popping up here looks more like an ad for bad hair styling?

    Like a packed school lunch? I haven't done that in ages. My last packed picnic lunch looked like this, at the Palm Beach polo grounds -

    But here's my first school lunch box. All that would fit was a single sandwich, wrapped in wax paper. Zip-locks didn't exist. The sandwiches on white Wonder bread alternated between baloney, liverwurst, salami, and cream crease & jelly. My mother didn't have much time in the morning, had to be at her office, and my father had already left for his stores. Besides, a man in that era wouldn't be given that task.

    In the 6th grade I got this, allowed for a lot more stuff. Like maybe an apple along with the sandwich, or some twinkies, Hostess cupcakes, cookies, and other treats. The thermos fit up inside the barn "roof", I thought it was really neat.

    I don't pack lunch, I pack breakfast! I'm at work at 4:30am, so have breakfast at about 8:00. I put my milk in a tupperware each morning, but if I'm out, I'll stop at the 24 hour convenience store on my way to work to get a gallon. I get some weird looks when carrying the gallon out of work later in the day!

    Cereal (usually Honey Nut Cheerios), yogurt, and oatmeal.

    Usually pb and jelly as a snack. I eat it halfway to lunch. Sometimes I bring a high cal protein shake too. But my main lunch is usually leftovers from the night before.

    Here's your proof.

    My packed lunch is my chicken stew, bulk cooked weekly and doctored into different lunches like burritos, soups, sloppy joes, Indian or asian/Thai fusion, carried not in a grade school lunchbox but a Six Pack Bag brand 3 meal cooler bag:

    Basic stew:

    Bulk cooked it comes out to $1.25 per meal (I get chicken breast on sale for $1.99/lb) for a container of chicken breast, brown rice (or quinoa), black beans, lentils, various root vegetables and spinach leaves.

    $25 boneless skinless chicken breast @ 1.99/lb (wait for a sale if need be and fill your freezer)
    $25 various diced root vegetables, whatever's available: yucca, yam, parsnip, onion, carrots, butternut squash, rutabaga, leeks
    $10 various: black beans, brown rice, quinoa, chicken broth, spinach leaves

    Some doctored meal suggestions:

    MEXICAN:
    Chicken breast & brown rice burritos wrapped in a sprouted grain Ezekiel wrap seasoned with cumin and topped with salsa and/or guacamole and Greek yogurt substituting for sour cream:

    THAI:
    Add a small quantity of coconut milk and fresh fresh mango, a teaspoon of peanut or almond butter, serve atop brown basmati rice.

    ITALIAN:
    Add tomato sauce (which makes a gravy), serve atop brown rice or sprouted grain pasta

    INDIAN:
    Stir in a curry or tiki-masala sauce or any "Tasty Bite" sauce packet served over white or white or brown basmati rice

    SLOPPY JOES:
    Serve on spelt english muffin, thin-sliced flaxseed whole grain bread or sprouted grain roll with a hit of tomato sauce to render the sauce into a gravy
