I am looking for paleo lunch ideas that are easy and portable. I should also ass that I am not a fan of soups, but I do love salads, I just get sick of them every day. I want to spice up my lunch time.

I like to fry meat or fish of some sort, dump a bunch of butter in there with precut garlic cloves and call it a day! I also add a portable fruit snack (apple, banana) for "desert"
