You will need to adjust portions up or down a bit relative to your own weight and goals as you determined. Also, if you can't find these items in your area, feel free to make healthy substitutions.

Even if you don't work in a factory, you can almost hear the sound of the noon whistle reverberating in the pit of your stomach.

And although half the day is already gone, there are still battles to be fought, fires to be put out, deadlines to be met. To meet the challenges that lie ahead, you can't go back to the front lines on an empty stomach or, worse, a stomach filled with junk food. These great lunch suggestions will give you the energy to hop the hump.

Remember: These lunches are for our 175-pound, 5-foot-10 reference man. You will need to adjust portions up or down a bit relative to your own weight and goals as you determined. Also, if you can't find these items in your area, feel free to make healthy substitutions.

Cold Pasta with Tuna

• 1 cup elbow macaroni, cooked
• 2 ounces light, water-packed tuna, drained solids
• 2 tablespoons Spectrum Lite Canola Mayo
• 1 cup romaine lettuce
• 1 small green pepper
• 1 tomato
• 1 medium carrot

Attention, pasta lovers: Just boil up some macaroni, add everything but the oranges, and stick it in the refrigerator. Looks like salad, tastes like salad.

DIV Pizza Treat

• 1 Lender’s 2-ounce bagel
• 1 teaspoon Blue Bonnet soft margarine
• 2 tablespoons Ragu Old World Style Smooth Pasta Sauce
• 2 ounces Dorman’s reduced-fat, low-sodium cheese
• 2 tomato slices
• 1/4 small green pepper
• 2 large oranges

If you can’t head out for pizza but still have a hankering for one, prepare this pizzalike treat—you can even do it at work. Just spread a little margarine on a bagel, spread on the pasta sauce, cover it with cheese and tomato and pepper slices, and stick it in the microwave or toaster oven for 1 minute or less.

Subway™ Cheesesteak Sandwich

• 1 Subway 6-inch steak and cheese hot
sub on whole-wheat bread
• 1 cup romaine lettuce
• 1 medium carrot
• 1 small green pepper
• 1 tomato
• 1 tablespoon Kraft Reduced-Calorie
Creamy Italian
• 1 large orange

As fast foods go, Subway’s 6-inch sandwiches are definitely on the lean side. If you know that you’re going to be on the road during your lunch hour, pack a salad made from the lettuce, tomato, pepper, and carrot, with dressing on the side and an orange, and order Subway’s sinful-sounding but low-fat 6-inch cheese-steak hot sub.

Pizza Hut™ Veggie Lovers Pizza

• 2 medium-size slices Pizza Hut Thin ‘n’ Crispy Veggie Lovers Pizza
• 12 ounces cola

Just a whiff of Pizza Hut should be enough to make you shout “Danger, danger! Warning, warning!” Still, there’s one item on the menu that’s calorically safe: the Thin ‘n’ Crispy Veggie Lovers Pizza. The catch: You can only eat two slices, so you’ll either have to share the others or bring them home to Rover.
