that's tough. Bananas, peanut butter (or almond butter) would work very well. It's easy and all you need is a butter knife.

cut up veggies (peppers, carrots, cukes, celery) and hummus ...great snack too!
fresh fruit...a favorite for me is a ziplock with sliced apples coated with cinnamon
peanuts..get tiny plastic containers so you can quickly measure out a quarter or eighth cup
a wide mouth thermos of soup

I found some great containers that keep food cold at Target (other places too) ...see the link below...I have 3 varieties....look around on the site. They have a range of interesting products.

bento

ALSO... Google BENTO which is Japanese for some truly inspired carry along lunches (in the cutest boxes ever). There are all kinds of web sites for all kinds of fun things you can do for lunches and snacks. The ideas blow me away...they are fun and many have an interesting Asian twist.
Below is a link to one of many possibilities to get your creative juices flowing.
Forget fast food...these will keep you going for months.

Sandwiches on low-carb bread (turkey, cheese, mustard, lettuce/tomato/cucumber/peppers/etc.), string cheese, soup in a thermos, homemade salad (if you can stop driving to eat), homemade trail mix, protein bars, cut-up veggies, apples/pears, etc.

There's a lot you can do with an insulated lunch bag!

If you can find it, canned lemon pepper tuna is actually *fantastic* to eat just on its own or on whole wheat crackers -- no mayo needed. It has a great flavor and good protein. I know it sounds weird, but I first tried it as part of an airplane snack pack, and now I'm hooked.

I used to pack my lunch a lot (similar situation). I love wraps! I use the low-carb wraps from La Tortilla Factory and they rock! They don't dry out, don't taste like flour and have lots of protein and fiber to keep you full. I spread lite laughing cow cheese on them and then use lean meat, spinach, and a variety of chopped ingredients like: pepper (red, yellow, green, orange), zuchinni, tomatoe, carrot, pear, strawberries, golden raisins, dried cranberries, mushrooms, artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes, snap peas, etc... You can be so creative. For example i have a ham, asparagus, artichoke and sun-dried tomatoe one. I wrap them in saran wrap or foil and they don't crush or dry out.

New: The PEERtrainer Cheat System
The PEERtrainer Cheat System is a new, simple to follow system for eating. The objective is to help guide you towards a way of eating that will make it easier to lose weight, give you more energy and help you feel better. It is free, easy to follow, and a little unusual and controversial. Most of all it is working. This link will take you to a blog post where you can download a FREE copy of the Cheat System Diet Cookbook! The Cheat System has also been turned into a major book to be published May 6th, 2014. According to Srini Pillay, MD, Harvard Medical School: "It works in a real way with how human psychology works...I love that it relates closely to how the brain likes to function... without crazy effort and with significant short-term gains."
Here is a preview of the cover:
