Those nut trail granola bars can be a good snack if your not allergic to nuts, or putting some almonds and dried cranberries in a ziploc bag are one of my favorite things when I'm on the go. It's healthy, filling and takes up little room in ones bag.

I would just take whatever you had for dinner the night before! Just put leftovers in a little container and take them with you. Stuff like rice and pasta is usually fine cold.

In winter you could fill a Thermos of soup and it would keep warm for a couple of hours at least.

I find sandwiches can go soggy (if they have interesting ingredients) but wraps, and even stiff bread rolls can work out much better. I used to make rolls with felafel, or eggplant, tomato, lettuce, cucumber, olives and my favourite sauce, and to turn it into a wrap I would add beans and rice. There are heaps of options with that!

You can bake your own healthy style muffins, with nuts or even including grated carrot and zucchini, or oat muffins or many other grains. These will last a little bit in a sealed container in the fridge, but you can also freeze them to last longer, so you could make a double batch and have two weeks worth for the barn! The great thing with these is that you can just eat them with one hand while you're doing whatever!

And of course there are a range of pre-made things in most shops, from nut or oat bars to miniature packets of biscuits, or cheese and cracker combinations or little fruit and nut bags!

^Potato salad usually has mayonnaise in it so that would not be best to bring in the summer heat. ;) Unless there is a fridge of course.

Granola bars are quick and easy to take with you and eat, but look for ones that aren't packed full of sugar.

If you've got a food processor and a bit of time, energy balls are fairly simple to make and eating 2 or 3 after work is enough to tide me over for several hours at the barn. You can google "energy balls recipes" and pick whatever ones look good to you, there's also healthy raw/vegan ones you can make if that interests you. I make a big batch every couple weeks and put 2 or 3 in little baggies, then keep them in the freezer. I'll take a baggie with me to work in the morning, and by the time the afternoon rolls around, they are all thawed and ready to eat. My favorite are the cacao and coconut recipes, but there's peanut butter ones and all sorts of other recipes if you do some googling:)

Chopped up fruit and veggies in a baggie are handy to take with you, and I like to cut up celery and then put peanut butter on it for a quick on the go snack as well.
