My job requires me to be in the office 50% of the time (which is obviously no hassle for breakfast or lunch) but for the other 50% of the time I am out in the field. I am an archaeologist (in Australia) and this often means leaving home around 5-6am (no way do I want to eat breakfast at this time of day) and working out in some remote location with no facilities or shops.
My current routine for breakfast is to take a small can of coconut milk with a small container of nuts/berries and mix it up when I arrive on site as a kind of "cereal" bowl. That's working fine. But lunches I am struggling with a bit. I have been doing salads with meat which is fine in the colder weather but I don't feel comfortable with meat sitting for so long on hot days.
The problem is that I don't like very strong fish flavour - so tuna and other tinned fish is a no go zone for me. I will only eat mild fish and much prefer sashimi if I am eating fish. Also I am no-dairy (apart from the occassional snippet).
Should also add that this type of work usually means that I am digging by hand and as a consequence am HUNGRY!
I cook meat for dinner and place two portions in the freezer for two lunches later in the week. I remove the meat from the freezer and take it frozen for lunch. It is usually still cold for lunch.
The below would keep it cold even longer. However you would need to take ground meat as the opening is rather small. I also take a chunk of cheese to work for lunch. However would prefer coconut oil.
I like to take a stick of Pemmican and some coconut flakes with me when I go climbing. Again, works best if pemmican is frozen up until leaving in the am. Also, what about getting one of those little insulated lunch boxes? Throw your lunch in there along with a small ice packs and you should be able to keep stuff cool at least until lunch.
