A friend was telling me how difficult figuring out what to have for lunch can be. She works and says she feels like she's been stuck in a rut. I'm couldn't come up with anything off the top of my head that helped, so I thought I'd ask what other people like for everyday lunches?

Sushi.

There's a place here that makes a pretty good five cheese panini (basically a grilled cheese and tomato sandwich with gouda, provolone, cheddar, pepper jack, and Swiss, and tomatoes. I'm trying to persuade them to add bacon. Add a cup of soup of your choice, or a salad, or both.

Curried chicken salad.

Local bar/restaurant here has half-price appetizers 4:30-6 PM (not lunch time, I know). We had tortillas with Buffalo chicken dip, Portobello mushroom strips, and quesadillas the other day. It was pretty good.

Any Indian food.

Cappellini with butter and Parmesan cheese (or oil and garlic), a salad, a glass of Chianti.

Cheese platter with good French bread and perhaps some Pat.

Good New York deli sandwiches (roast beef on rye, Reuben, whatever you like).

Deviled eggs and a salad (soup?).

A lot of choices within a block or two of where I work including a decent cafeteria. I usually go for salad bar, vegetable curry, sushi or bring leftovers.

A pistolet, is that English? Half a baquette will do.
Some salad, soft goat cheese, wallnuts, thyme and honey.
Or a simple cold sandwich with cheese to celebrate my Dutchness.

If I were going out to lunch, it'd be sushi or Thai or Chinese.

I frequently make my lunch, and it tends to be tuna salad (tuna, celery, parsley, capers, sour pickles, olive oil, dijon mustard, chilis, slivered almonds), or tabouli, or leftovers from dinner (chili, stew, salad, whatever).

Just meat steak with fried potatoes.

Also love spaghetti with tomato sauce and cheese.

Between these 2 they make about 30% of my meals.

Lately I've been enjoying a big bowl of humus with olive oil, garlic, and the local "hot sauce". Side of pita, a pickle, some olives and an onion.

:P You think you have problems? At my advanced age almost everything good is bad for you, and almost everything that is not bad for you tastes like dog food.
This leaves only sushi, well-seasoned broiled fish, properly done roast chicken, stir-fried veggies with various oriental seasonings, vietnamese pho, most thai curry, cerviche, posole, southern-style greens with cornbread and hot sauce. Damn! I could go on and on, but its nearly lunch time.
