Frozen Dinners and Soups: It's a variation on the brown bag lunch, but a lot less time and thought goes into it. The range and quality of frozen meals has improved in the last few years and if you are a smart shopper, you can buy large quantities of them when they go on sale.
Soup has come a long from way since the days of living in a can or coming in a powdery mix. Today, you can buy individual servings that come in a microwavable container that you can eat out of. Can it be simpler than that?
Find the Free Lunch: Stop ignoring all those invites to training sessions, seminars and panel discussions. They often come with free food. Yes, companies are cutting back in this recession, but it is worth finding out about the free meal possibilities. Plus the event might be a good networking or career advancement opportunity. If you get a promotion or a job with a higher salary, then you can afford to eat lunch out every day.
