Q: Hi! I work outside (out in the wilderness) quite often and I'm tired of eating sandwiches for lunch.

I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on lunches that would be great for the outdoors, keeping in mind that it'll probably be sitting in my backpack on hot sunny days.

Editor: Nicole, this post should have a lot of inspiration:

Reader Intelligence: No-Refrigerate, No-Reheat Lunches?

I like to pack salads on these occasions, too; grain and bean salads are fine unrefrigerated and often taste better after sitting in the sun! Try this one, for instance:

Warm Chickpea Salad with Cumin & Garlic

Readers, what else would you suggest?
