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"

There is nothing wrong with having just meat for lunch (or any other meal.) Some people are completely carnivorous and they are fine.
