You don't have to eat out every day. Several days a week you can brown bag it. When you begin preparing meals at home in the evenings, prepare extra for leftovers and package it away in single serving sizes for lunch. If your place of employment has a refrigerator, you can store your lunch there until you are ready to eat. If no refrigerator is available, buy an insulated lunch bag and a reusable ice pack. These work very well in keeping foods cool for several hours. You can also try freezing your sandwich and it should be sufficiently thawed by lunch.
