Ideas for Lunches to Eat on the Run?

Recipe Questions

Q: I'm a college student, and on Mondays and Wednesdays, I only have 15 minutes to eat lunch as I walk from one class to the next. I usually end up stuffing a sandwich in my mouth while walking or try to discreetly eat while in class.

Any ideas for healthy lunches (not energy bars) I can eat on the go? I try to avoid loud foods or anything with a strong smell. Any tips would be appreciated!

Editor: You could switch up your sandwiches with a few other easily transportable foods like salad wraps, pita-pockets, and spring rolls. If you have time in the morning, making some vegetarian sushi (which wouldn't need to be refrigerated) would be an awesome lunch-on-the-go. Grain salads are also something that could you could easily eat at your desk once you get to class.
